Mr Hodgson praised the “impressive” new development after visiting Wixams to spend time at Kier Living Eastern’s two sites – Marston Place and The Ferns.
He said: “Wixams has a real feeling of community, with Lakeview School, the village hall and shops all well placed. There is a high demand for housing in Bedford borough and in Wixams itself, so it’s great to see these impressive new homes being delivered. Wixams is an extremely popular community for families, and no doubt these new homes will help maintain that trend.”
The Ferns is an attractive collection of 43 homes with five different property types to choose from, meaning there is sure to be a new home to suit a variety of buyers. The stylish properties are laid out to promote both individuality and a close-knit community.
Prices at The Ferns are yet to be confirmed, while at neighbouring Marston Place prices start at £209,995 for a two bedroom apartment. Four bedroom homes start at £395,995, with five bedroom homes starting from £419,995.
Peter Fallon, development sales manager for Marston Place and The Ferns said: “It was a pleasure to show the Mayor around our superb show home at Marston Place and visit The Ferns where our latest homes are now being built.”
