Three, four and five-bedroom properties at Bovis Homes’ – which is part of the newly-formed Vistry GroupWhitehouse Park, in Crownhill, have been in high demand despite Government restrictions.

Among those purchasing properties at the location – open to visitors on an appointment-only basis – are buyers who have moved from outside the area but work in Milton Keynes and those who want a simple commute into London.

Heather Suffield, regional marketing manager at Bovis Homes, said: “Whitehouse Park is an extremely popular location due to its green space, Lady Margery’s Gorse park, family facilities and easy commuter links and many of our larger homes include a study for those now working at home more.

“We’re delighted to have sold so many properties at such a difficult time for the economy and look forward to welcoming more home buyers to Whitehouse Park soon, where quality and customer care are of the utmost importance.”
