Since its initial launch at the end of February, the homes at Rutherford Fields have been proving to be a real hit for first time buyers, young professionals and families alike.
So far 80% of the first phase has been reserved with first time buyers from the local area snapping up a number of the Shared Ownership properties on offer.
Rutherford Fields, on the base of the former RAF Stanbridge, near Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire offers something for everyone, from one and two bedroom apartments to houses with two, three and four bedrooms. With a range of properties available through Private Sale, affordable rent and Shared Ownership, there is something to suit every lifestyle.
Chris Holder, Area Sales Manager for Catalyst comments:
“Since the launch of our show home at the end of February, we have been extremely pleased with the interest we have received so far at Rutherford Fields. The development represents the only opportunity locally for first time buyers to be able to purchase a home through Shared Ownership and this is proving to be a real draw."
“We are now starting to see demand from people living further afield who are keen to take advantage of the commuter links to areas such as London and Milton Keynes and be able to buy more for their money.”
Each home is designed to a high specification with contemporary fitted kitchens with a range of integrated appliances, stylish white sanitary ware with chrome fittings in the bathroom and some with en-suite, where applicable, and energy efficiency features throughout. Many properties also have a garage or off street parking and the houses have front and rear lawned gardens.
Rutherford Fields is based on the former RAF Stanbridge site which has a big story to tell. It used to be home to one of the country’s most closely guarded secrets. Originally RAF Leighton Buzzard, the picturesque site nestled in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside played a key role as a global communications centre throughout World War II and crucially during D-Day and the Battle of Britain.
Today Rutherford Fields enjoys the best of both worlds with the peace and quiet of a rural setting and excellent commuter links. The quaint English village of Stanbridge, just over a mile away, has a range of local amenities including a cosy country pub while the lively market town of Leighton Buzzard is close by with a selection of shops, bars and restaurants. There are regular trains into London Euston in as little as half an hour and five trains an hour to Milton Keynes, taking just ten minutes. The A505 passes close to the development, with Milton Keynes within easy reach and access to M1 and beyond.
