Why has Silverbrook proved to be so popular?

Weston Homes officially launched their Silverbrook development in October 2013, a stylish development of 73 luxury houses and apartments situated in the sought-after village of Markyate, Hertfordshire.

Since October, over 60% of the stunning 3 and 4 bedroom houses have been snapped up, proving to be most popular with young families; although the development appeals to a wide audience of purchasers.

Silverbrook is the perfect place to call home – the picturesque village of Markyate is located between Dunstable and Hemel Hempstead, just 5 miles away from the town of Luton and thus benefitting from the proximity to Luton Airport, ideal for international travel. For those looking to stay a little closer to home, Silverbrook is only a 4 minute drive to the M1, connecting residents to both the North and South of the country with ease; the M25 is a further 7 minute drive taking you towards the capital.

Characterised with beautiful 16th century buildings, this quaint village offers local amenities in abundance. The High Street includes; a local market store, hardware store, bank, bakery and newsagent, all perfect for stocking up on your daily essentials. International eateries and traditional public houses offer great variety for dining out and socialising.
