Having completed and sold all but one property at its exclusive, and first ever development, Lansdowne Villas in Bedford, Storey Homes is thrilled to announce that planning permission has now be granted for Phase 2 comprising 222 houses and apartments.

“We are very excited about this next phase. By gaining this permission it can only confirm that the work we have carried out so far, in the refurbishment of 20 Victorian Villas on Lansdowne Road and 2 new build 4 bedroom luxury houses, is highly regarded” comments Matthew Storey, Director of Storey Homes. “Using quality materials and traditional build we have created homes that compliment and reflect the surroundings.”

Matthew concludes, “not only will Phase 2 help regenerate the area but with 1.1 acres of landscaped public open space with children’s play park, we are helping to improve the local facilities. Also, with approximately £20 million being invested into this site over the next 4 years, hundreds of jobs will be created”.
Carrying on with the Victorian style grandeur that made the first phase so popular, these homes will offer other couples and families, who are looking to move into the Bedford area, an excellent opportunity of owning a stunning new home in this leafy conservation area.

Although work is not due to start on Phase 2 until the latter quarter of 2012, there is still the opportunity to purchase the last remaining and thoughtfully designed three storey 4 bedroom Villa at £499,950.

To complete, there is a spacious lounge with doors opening out onto the landscaped garden, a separate utility room and cloakroom.
