Mulberry Homes is encouraging property seekers in Bedfordshire to consider moving to the beautiful countryside, with spacious, luxurious homes available at its Brunswick Gate development on the edge of Lower Stondon.

Situated on Bedford Road, just over four miles from Hitchin, Brunswick Gate is an aspirational selection of luxury homes, with four and five-bedroom properties available, perfectly designed to blend traditional exteriors with stylish interiors.

Brunswick Gate has become increasingly popular following lockdown, with many purchasers seeking to relocate to bigger homes in the countryside, where they can enjoy more space and a calmer lifestyle. The popular development is selling quickly with only six homes remaining.

Mulberry Homes has also recently launched The Parkland Collection at Brunswick Gate, offering a beautiful range of generously-sized four and five-bedroom homes, which showcase the very best of open plan family living, and boast stunning views over open space and countryside areas.

According to recent Zoopla research, large homes in the countryside are currently in the highest demand, with four and five-bedroom homes selling 33% faster than last year, as buyers prioritise more space and migrate away from cities, suburbs and commuter belts1.

Luxurious and generously-sized properties provide buyers with additional rooms that much of the population craves after spending more time than ever at home. Homeowners can utilise the extra room in a way that best suits their ‘new normal’ lifestyle, whether that’s needing a designated office for professionals working from home, a space for the kids to play and learn outside of school, or a room for leisure and entertainment such as a gym or games room.

For those with large families, the additional space can simply be used to keep all loved-ones under the same roof, whilst providing elderly relatives or teenagers with their own, personal space.

A life in the countryside offers breath-taking views and acres of outdoor space to enjoy peaceful walks. Residents can benefit from a neighbourhood that’s quieter and more serene than life in the city, and partake in a healthier lifestyle with endless outdoor activities to get involved in and fresh produce on-hand from local suppliers.

Being so close to the heart of the countryside boosts both physical and mental wellbeing, with wildlife right outside the window and a friendly, close-knit village community making countryside living feel more welcoming and desirable than ever.

The peaceful village of Lower Stondon benefits from the idyllic harmony of rural living, whilst providing the option to explore the amenities of nearby Hitchin and Letchworth Garden City. Lower Stondon itself features Mount Pleasant Golf Club, a village hall and takeaway restaurants, as well as a play park and primary school for those with young families. With yoga, Tai Chi and Scouts also on offer, the village community really does offer something for everyone.

Hitchin’s offering ranges from salons offering indulgent spa treatments to chic coffee shops and the glorious Hitchin Lavender Farm. Further afield, Bedford and Luton are a short drive away via the A6 whilst the A1 and M1 are just 15 and 25 minutes away respectively, providing quick access to major national transport networks.

Commuters will also find themselves at an advantage, as trains from Hitchin railway station reach London St. Pancras Intl. in just over half an hour, whilst Cambridge and Peterborough are both under 45 minutes away by rail.

Purchasers can also save up to £15,000 when purchasing a home at Brunswick Gate, with new Government rules stating that Stamp Duty will be waivered on the first £500,000 of the property price, on all sales taking place before 31st March 2021.

House moving schemes such as Part Exchange and Mulberry’s bespoke Assisted Move are also available on selected plots, providing purchasers with an easier and less stressful buying experience.

Current availability at Brunswick Gate includes four-bedroom homes priced from £579,950 and five-bedroom homes priced from £719,950.

Brunswick Gate’s showhome and sales centre is open via appointment only, 10am – 5pm Thursday to Monday, and until 4pm on Sundays. For further information, visit or contact the sales team on 0333 121 1040.
