With a well-connected, semi-rural location, it’s no surprise that homebuyers are flocking to the area to secure a new luxury home.
Designed with this quintessential village setting in mind, each of the 41 newly launched homes feature a luxurious specification internally and externally blends seamlessly in to the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. Greenings is set amongst Long Crendon’s rich history, warm country charm and quaint square in the heart of the village.
Richard Page, Sales & Marketing Director of Spitfire Bespoke Homes, comments: “We are really pleased that Greenings has been so well received by those that visited during our launch weekend. With two plots reserved already and strong interest from local buyers, Greenings has been very well received. We would like to encourage potential purchasers to put their current homes on the market and get in contact as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
