History and Heritage
The barns date from the 1850s and were originally traditional farm buildings on the Duke of Bedfords estate. The tall chimney indicates that the farm had adopted mechanised ways of threshing the crop and marks the position of a former fixed steam engine to power the machinery. The brick built single and multi storey buildings have now been converted into six unique contemporary dwellings which have retained the barns original architectural features and blended them with modern, high specification fixtures and fittings. The development is on the edge of Millbrook village in a peaceful rural location and yet is only 5 minutes drive from Ampthill which has a range of pubs and restaurants, a Waitrose supermarket, and a selection of independent specialist shops. The development is also only about 20 minutes drive from both Bedford and Milton Keynes which both have railway stations with commuter trains to London.
