Located in the county of Buckinghamshire, and famed for its many roundabouts, Milton Keynes covers an area of 89 square kilometres. Although the area has been populated since the middle ages, it was not until 1967 that it came into its own.
One of the main aims of the town was to relieve the housing pressure in London in the late 60s. Many surrounding smaller towns and villages were absorbed and merged to form the town as it is today.
As a continuously evolving popular “New City”, Milton Keynes has a lot to offer people either looking to relocate to the area, or those currently residing already in Milton Keynes. Expanding at a very fast rate, it is expected that the population will reach 500,000 over the next 10 years.

Higher education options include the distance learning institution Open University, it has its headquarters three miles from the town centre. Whilst the University Campus Milton Keynes, a campus of the University of Bedfordshire, provides some education facilities locally.
Milton Keynes is currently the UK’s largest population centre without its own conventional university, but this is being addressed.
In January 2019, the Council and its partner, Cranfield University, invited proposals to design a campus near the Central station for a new university, code-named MK:U.
Property Prices in Milton Keynes
Over the past five years homes in the town have seen a huge increase in value of over 35%. Today the average cost to buy a home here is £307,015. Although this is a bit on the high side, it is still cheaper than other places in Buckinghamshire such as High Wycombe and Amersham where averages far exceed the £400,000 mark.
Having seen a continual growth in the number of new homes being built, Milton Keynes now offers those seeking a brand-new home a variety of locations.
Some of the latest developments are in Wavendon, Campbell Park, Oxley Park and Brooklands. The advantage of buying new is that many developers such as Bovis and Permission offer first time buyers “help to buy” schemes giving them the opportunity to own a home which normally would have been out of reach.
As a price guide for the Milton Keynes area, you can expect to pay an average of £457,000 for a detached property, £268,000 for a semi, £232,000 for a terraced home and £173,000 for a flat.
