Award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson Regeneration, has officially launched its exclusive Ouzel Island collection of family houses at its stylish Oakgrove Village development in Milton Keynes. Ouzel Island offers buyers spacious, high-end family living with stunning views across the surrounding parkland and watercourse in Ouzel Valley Park. 

Seven new properties were released for sale at the preview launch event - four of which were reserved on the same day. Such was the demand that once doors opened at 11am, one customer put pen to paper within just twenty minutes of stepping inside.

Susan Young, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration, commented: “This boutique collection of four and five-bedroom homes sets a new standard for family homes in the area. The specification and setting of the houses is second-to-none and great for local buyers looking to upgrade to something more luxurious, as well as to London based buyers, who cannot only get more for their money here but also enjoy an improved quality of life.
“The number of people that registered their interest in this new development even before its launch is testament to its quality and location. There really isn’t anything else like it on the market in the area, nor is there likely to be for the foreseeable future. We have already had an incredibly high interest in our first available properties.”

The houses at Ouzel Island blend the best of traditional and contemporary design with craftsmanship of the highest quality. Living spaces are light, bright and thoughtfully planned; perfect for modern living. Upstairs, bedrooms are spacious, with en-suite bathrooms to main bedrooms, fully fitted wardrobes and family bathrooms that wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique hotel.
Ouzel Island has been designed to maximise views and access to the surrounding countryside. Homes are located along pretty tree-lined streets punctuated with landscaped green areas, ensuring residents have plenty of space and privacy. Every house benefits from a large garden, garage or car port and additional off-street parking.

Ouzel Island doesn’t just offer residents a beautiful home but the opportunity to be part of a community too. There is a Waitrose on-site and leisure opportunities just a short drive away, as well as highly regarded state schools catering for children from nursery age to sixth form. The development has been designed to support both growing and established families. A primary school affiliated with the excellent Oakgrove School will open in 2016.

The development has been designed to be pedestrian and bicycle friendly and is criss-crossed with walking and cycle paths linking to Milton Keynes’ well-established Redway routes. 

Adjacent to the development is Ouzel Valley Park which provides beautiful picnic areas, as well as fun activities such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking, power boat racing and windsurfing on its two lakes, making the development the perfect choice for those looking to enjoy an active lifestyle. Residents can also benefit from the family-friendly attractions of Milton Keynes right on the doorstep.

Prices currently start from £575,000. For more information Crest Nicholson’s on-site Sales & Marketing Suite at Ouzel Island, off Chaffron Way (open daily 10am-5pm), call 0870 758 0430 or visit
