Bloor Homes Living @ The Edge development is benefitting from the new £91million Luton Dunstable Busway transport link, which provides quick services between Dunstable and Luton up to every seven minutes at peak times.

Located close to the centre of Dunstable, Bloor Homes’ Living @ The Edge development offers a selection of two and three bedroom houses which are ideal for second steppers looking to move up the property ladder in an area with great transport links.

The nearest bus station to Living @ The Edge is Portland Ride, providing residents with easy access to White Lion Retail Park and The Quadrant shopping centre in Dunstable, or a quick getaway for holidays from London Luton Airport.

Everything is on hand for buyers in the historic market town of Dunstable, which offers residents a variety of leisure activities. The town has five main shopping areas within walking distance of the central crossroads, as well as a long-established market which takes place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The area is also well served for leisure pursuits with local people able to enjoy more than 180 acres of parks, gardens and open spaces. For keen sportspeople there is a Dunstable Downs golf club, cricket clubs, a bowling green and tennis courts. The Town also boasts its own football club – Dunstable Town FC.

For the more adventurous, there is Dunstable Downs, a chalk escarpment ideal for walking, kite flying, paragliding and hang-gliding. And not forgetting the working week, Dunstable is well placed for commuting into London with services taking around 41 minutes from Luton to London St Pancras. The nearby A5, M1 and A421 also make road travel convenient.

The three bedroom homes currently available include the Copley and Croftley townhouses priced from £237,500. These homes are laid out across three storeys, with a kitchen/diner and separate family room with French doors to the rear garden on the ground floor. There is also a cloakroom and ample storage space.

On the first floor is a lounge and bedroom two with en-suite facilities, which offers the perfect guest accommodation. On the second floor are two double bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom.

The properties are completed to an excellent specification with contemporary fitted kitchens, finished with laminate worktops and matching splashbacks and a range of appliances, including a ceramic electric hob, extractor hood, oven and integrated fridge-freezer.

The bathrooms feature white sanitary ware with complementing chrome fittings and the en-suites have a metallic shower enclosure and thermostatic shower.

Situated at the eastern end of the Chiltern Hills, the area around Dunstable has an impressive history. Dunstable Priory was not only the place of Henry VIII’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon but also where the first ever play to be seen in England was performed, written by Geoffrey de Gorham in the 12th Century.

Other local attractions include the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, the beautiful Grade II listed Priory House and the Grove Theatre, a multi-million pound theatre complex, which regularly stages both local and national productions.

Properties are available through the ‘Help to Buy' scheme, whereby the Government provides an equity loan of up to 20% of the value of the property which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the property. The buyer then only needs to find a 5% deposit, and arrange a mortgage for the remainder of the purchase price.

Also available at Living @ The Edge are two bedroom homes priced from £180,000. For more information, visit
