Sales Office Opens At Kyngshouton

Persimmon are building a collection of 62 homes with 2, 3, or 4 bedrooms off Bedford Road, Bidwell, Houghton Regis. The project is known as  Kyngshouton*, although the main cul-de-sac road will be known as The Baulk, with a smaller off-shoot cul-de-sac to be known as Piggotts. The homes are being sold on a 999 year lease, with ground rents starting at £150 a year, plus annual  service maintenance charges.

Prices for the first homes have been released, ranging from £299,950 for The Hatfield, a 3 bedroom end terrace with 2 parking spaces, to £405,000 for The Warwick, a 5 bedroom detached home with 2 parking spaces.

A Help to Buy scheme is available, although applicants will need to fund at least 80% of the purchase price by means of a conventional mortgage, savings, and deposit where required.

Reservations will require £1,000 deposit.

The showroom is now open Thursday to Monday 11am-6pm. Telephone 01582 864136

* If you've lived in the town for many years but have not ventured down Bedford Road for awhile, you'd be forgiven for not knowing about Kyngshouton. This is the name given to a development in a field west of the old Red Lion. The developers, Persimmon, have based the development name on an old name for Houghton Regis mentioned in the Assizes in 1287(1).  The royal connection was added after Henry I, King of England, (c 1068-1135) built a palace known as Kingsbury on land in Houghton (now part of Dunstable).
