Richard Page, Sales & Marketing Director of Spitfire Bespoke Homes, comments: “Long Crendon is a truly beautiful village, which offers residents a fantastic sense of community and location. Commuters are very well served at Greenings, benefitting from being within an hour of Marylebone station. We are delighted to unveil the new thatched show home, designed to reflect the villages’ existing architecture. Greenings has already received strong local interest with many plots already sold or reserved, so we would encourage potential purchasers to come and view the show home as soon as possible.”
