According to Savills, 96% of Londoners are re-setting their lifestyles to a new normal in favour of flexible working and searching for homes beyond the capital. As a result, house hunters are being lured to outer London locations for the improved quality of life that comes with suburban living. 

Forming the final phase of De Montfort Place, Storey Homes introduces Haymarket Rise, an exclusive collection of nineteen two-bedroom luxury apartments located in the thriving town of Bedford. Due to be completed in May 2021, the apartments are ideal for first time buyers, young professionals and downsizers who want to be based in an outstanding location that offers incredible connectivity, dreamy greenspace and fine riverside living.

Katy Jordan, Managing Director at Storey Homes, comments: “No longer bound to a physical office or limited by commuting distance, the ease of suburban life is a brilliant option. Our lives have evolved, buyers are less restricted when it comes to location and commuter towns are benefiting. Better value, less pollution, more space to breathe and everything on your doorstep in terms of amenities and easy city connections, Bedford is an excellent town to invest in and be based in.”
