HALFWAY POINT REACHED AT AWARD-WINNING LONGRIDGE DEVELOPMENT
LOCATION and layouts have helped sell more than half the homes at a popular Longridge development that has just won a prestigious award.
According to customers at The Ridings by Prospect Homes, the historic market town and the design of the homes has proved appealing. And its success has been further recognised after it won an award in the Residential Development for Lancashire category at the UK Property Awards.
Out of the 65 homes that have now sold at the Whittingham Road development, 40% have been sold to families moving up the property ladder, with part exchange providing an added incentive.
The development, that will eventually deliver 113 two, three and four-bedroom homes, offers a great location, close to Longridge town centre to enjoy all that it has to offer and it’s less than 10 miles from Preston city centre making it ideal for commuters.
Sam Williams, head of sales at Prospect Homes said: “We always knew The Ridings’ location would be a big hit with buyers as it is surrounded by gorgeous countryside however buyers are also moving here due to it being so easily located to get to major hubs across the region.
“Buyers have moved from relatively close by too, within circa 15 miles, so again, it’s great to know that our homes are ticking many buyers’ boxes when searching for new build homes.”
For customers looking to upsize, Prospect Homes offer Part Exchange whereby they purchase a buyer’s existing home so they can proceed with the sale of their new build. This has a number of benefits including taking away any uncertainty that being in a chain may bring and there are no estate agent fees to pay, freeing up money to use on a new home.
One house style that has been popular with families is the four-bedroom detached Bembridge. Priced from £265,500 this home comes with a large, open plan kitchen and dining area with a handy separate utility room. Upstairs there are three double-bedrooms, the fourth being ideal for a working from home space, if not needed for sleeping. It also come with an integral garage.
The three-bed detached Heather is also an ideal house for growing families. Priced from £240,000, this home has a modern open plan kitchen/dining area and a separate lounge. Upstairs, the primary bedroom comes with an en-suite, while the other two bedrooms share a family bathroom.
Commenting on the development’s recent award win, Sam said: “The annual UK Property Awards celebrate the very best of the UK property industry and are part of the world-renowned International Property Awards so we are so delighted that The Ridings has been recognised as one of the best.”
The company will find out in a ceremony on October 29th whether The Ridings has been upgraded to the higher accolade of 5-star status.
The very best 5-star winners then go on to compete against the best property professionals across the European region.
