First-time buyers are flocking to the historic site of Nightingale Rise in Buckingham, as leading developer Weston Homes unveils a new collection of 38 apartments at the development starting at just £184,995.
Once the formal gardens of Lord Cobham’s country estate, Nightingale Rise has undergone a stunning transformation into 61 stylish houses and apartments. To date, all 23 Nightingale Rise apartments and houses launched in the first phase by Weston Homes have sold. This new launch marks the final release of apartments at Nightingale Rise by Weston Homes, with 24 one bedroom and 14 two bedroom apartments available.
With homes in Buckingham selling on average for £435,857* and prices in the area continuing to rise, Weston Homes’ Nightingale Rise is an attractive prospect for first-time buyers thanks to its ideal location and transport links.
And with the average price of an apartment in Central London topping £1.5 million**, Nightingale Rise is also proving irresistible to downsizers and investors too, who are seeking homes which offer modern facilities in a countryside setting.
Situated in Morton Road, in the heart of the historic market town of Buckingham, with Milton Keynes Central train station located nearby, commuters can find themselves in London Euston in just 35 minutes.
As part of this launch, Weston Homes is also unveiling a new show apartment, designed by Blocc Interiors, famed for their bold yet contemporary designs. Thoughtfully designed, the interiors offer a balance of space and style, finished to the exceedingly high level of specification that defines a Weston home.
Bob Weston, CEO and Chairman of Weston Homes said:
“Nightingale Rise provides the perfect fusion of modern and traditional living, thanks to the site’s historic roots combined with contemporary homes with state of the art specification provided by Weston Homes.
“Given its location and the development’s entry-level price, it comes as no surprise that this collection of attractive homes is being eagerly snapped up by first-time buyers, as well as investors and downsizers. Buckingham is an attractive market town with easy transport links to London from Milton Keynes.”
The development, located in a private enclave minutes from the centre of town, offers a timeless feel that compliments its market town surroundings. Designed to combine the local Buckingham architectural vernacular with the best in contemporary design, the houses have contrasting brick and render facades with features including undulating roofscapes, feature brick chimneys, dormer windows and canopy style entrance porches. The result is a high quality collection of homes that complement their surroundings and exude the best in local architectural style and modern design.
The apartments contain an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space with the master bedrooms including fully fitted mirrored wardrobes.
The fully fitted kitchen spaces are designed to specification by Oakwood Kitchens with integrated Zanussi branded appliances and a choice of quartz stone worktops specifically tailored to each home owner. Exclusive to Weston Homes, the bespoke Fascino brand, who specialise in lifestyle and product design innovation, have provided stainless steel hand-finished sink, instant boiling water tap, oversized single bowl and integrated removable chopping board.
There is a choice of wood flooring to the entrance halls, living areas, dining areas and kitchens, as well as carpet options to the bedrooms.
The bathrooms are illuminated with low level LED strip lighting, and include heated chrome towel rails, fitted mirror and shaving point, as well as a Fascino digitally controlled Smart Tap. Buyers can also choose from an array of porcelain wall and floor tile colours provided by RAC ceramics, both with polished and matt finishing giving the bathrooms a truly personalised feel.
Nightingale Rise has communal landscaped gardens, along with courtyard gardens to selected apartments. There is allocated parking to all of the apartments – including garages, an undercover parking area and outside spaces.
Nightingale Rise is surrounded by various gastronomic hotspots such as Villiers Restaurant, first featured in the Michelin guide back in 1911 and has remained a true highlight in every Michelin guide since. Residents will also be able to visit the Nelson Street Café, which is headed up by former Ivy chef, Louis Myhill.
The development is also ideally situated just a brisk walk from the centre of Buckingham with easy access to the M40 or M1 motorway. Neighbouring Milton Keynes provides regular trains to London Euston – on the Northern Line and others – and links to the City and West End areas. The new station at nearby Winslow scheduled for completion in 2019 will offer direct routes to Oxford and London’s Marylebone station.
Prices at Nightingale Rise start from £184,995 for a one bedroom apartment and £243,995 for a two bedroom apartment. The marketing suite is open to visitors seven days per week from 10am to 5pm.
