Mulberry Homes is set to launch Houghton Fields in Houghton Conquest this weekend and the collection of new houses will include the nations rarest and most sought after home – the bungalow

Mulberry Homes, one of the region’s leading independent house builders is inviting prospective home buyers to attend the launch of its latest development of three and four bedroom homes at Houghton Fields in Houghton Conquest in Bedfordshire on Saturday 10th February.

This will be the first opportunity to view the Watermead Show Home, a four bedroom detached family home and the Marston Show Home; a three bedroom bungalow. Both have been individually designed and feature luxurious internals by a leading designer and will showcase the bright and spacious interiors that Houghton Fields offers.

In the past 30 years the number of bungalows built each year has dramatically dropped from almost 30,000 to just 2,210, according to the National House Building Council (NHBC). That is a fall from one in six new homes to one in 63.

It’s good news then that Mulberry Homes is including a cluster of three bedroom bungalows as part of its Houghton Fields development in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire.

Kerry Jones, Head of Sales for Mulberry Homes, said: “The shortage of bungalows is not a reflection of this in-demand house-type and with the UK’s population aging, demand for single story homes is only likely to grow.  Bungalows are particularly well suited to older buyers and empty nesters who generally want to downsize.  These brand new homes have been carefully designed for modern living and as with all new Mulberry homes, enjoy a high specification as standard, including kitchens that are well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus bathrooms with quality fixtures, fittings and flooring.”

Available from just £394,950, the Marsden is a spacious property with an ample sized lounge with separate dining area, plus an eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms, two well-proportioned bathrooms plus a garage.

For those with a property to sell, it doesn’t matter if home buyers are moving up the housing ladder, downsizing to somewhere more manageable or making a sideways move – Mulberry Homes can help secure a buyer with the minimum of fuss with its Assisted Move scheme.

Located off Bedford Road in Houghton Conquest between the county town of Bedford and the market town of Ampthill, the development at Houghton Fields has been designed to complement the neighbouring environment with plenty of open space, as well as private gardens and parking.  The village offers a shop, post office, active village hall and three good family gastropubs / restaurants. There are various clubs and societies for young and old and the village is surrounded by picturesque landscapes with an abundance of country walks.

The three bedroom bungalows at Houghton Fields start at just £394,950, three bedroom houses at just £414,950 and four bedroom houses at just £514,950 with Help to Buy and Part Exchange available.
