Where should I buy in Luton?

If you’d like to live close to London without the hefty price tag, Luton could be the perfect town to call home. Located virtually halfway between the capital and Milton Keynes, it’s popular with families, pensioners and young professionals looking for easy access to nearby cities. 

When it comes to choosing the perfect home, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you want a 3-bed fixer upper with room to extend or a beautiful terraced house that’s ready to move into, there’s something for everyone in Luton.

North of Luton's centre, Bushmead is a quiet suburb that's highly desirable thanks to its modern housing and nearby green spaces like the Pegsdon Hills and Hoo Bit Nature Reserve, as well as Barton Hills.


Bushmead is well connected, thanks to bus services running down New Bedford Road into Luton. Once you’ve reached the town centre you can easily travel by train to other parts of the UK. Going abroad? Luton airport is just a 10 minute drive from Bushmead Road.

Local schools

Bushmead Pre-School, Bushmead Primary School, Icknield High School and Stopsley High School have all received a ‘good’ rating by Ofsted. The popular Barnfield College and Luton Sixth Form College are right on your doorstep too. 

Property growth

Sold prices in Bushmead have risen by 24% over the last year, suggesting that the area is in high demand.


Like many hamlets and villages in Luton, most of Bushmead’s growth happened in the 20th Century.  Much of the area belonged to Stopsley Common Farm. The farmhouse was built by the Putteridge Estate around 1870 and it still stands on Bushmead Road, just a few yards from Bushmead Primary School.
