Barratt Homes believes both downsizers and first time buyers can benefit from apartments it is marketing in Milton Keynes.

The housebuilder has two hi-spec schemes of one and two-bedroom flats, Brooklands and Fairfields.

Barratt says the low maintenance living offered by apartments, makes them a good option for working professionals.

Milton Keynes, newly-crowned as a city, is known for its excellent commuter links.

The Brooklands site is in Fen Street and offers buyers a chance to join an established community. Existing amenities include medical centres, shops, food outlets, schools and much more.

Fairfields in Vespasian Road is also now established and offers commuting access, green open spaces with play areas, on site amenities and is a short walk from the historic town of Stony Stratford.

Alison Raine, sales director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: There are many advantages to apartment living and we are seeing a rise in the number of first time buyers and downsizers who are benefitting from these.

“Apartments as a whole are becoming more in-demand with buyers because they are well suited to a range of different lifestyles and customers.”

Barratt Homes offers various schemes to help those seeking to buy a property. That includes Government-backed Help to Buy scheme and the Deposit Unlock initiative to help make moving home easier for both first time buyers and second steppers.

Barratt Homes has also launched a new two-bedroom Amble style show apartment at Fairfields.
