Demand expected to be high at Burscough

Demand is expected to be high when an eagerly-awaited development of new homes is unveiled to the public this weekend in the popular village of Burscough.

The Carriages is Persimmon Homes’ latest development in the region, providing three, four and five bedroom family homes on the historic site of the former Ainscough Mill.

Diane Finch, sales director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “The Carriages sales office opens this Saturday at 11am and we are expecting to be rushed off our feet with people coming to view the site and find out more about the beautiful homes we have planned. Already we have received hundreds of enquiries through our website, so we know there will be a lot of interest on the day.

“The village is in a superb location, at a crossroads between Preston, Liverpool, Southport and Wigan, making it convenient for commuters and also those who love the great outdoors, as it is just a few minutes from the Martin Mere nature reserve.

“Our site is also close to the Burscough Wharf leisure and retail centre, which showcases arts and crafts, fashion, food and drink, and includes beautiful walks along the canal.”

The development, on Junction Lane, offers 66 family homes in a variety of styles, priced from £194,995.

Diane added: “We have a number of schemes to help people to secure the house of their dreams, including the Help To Buy shared equity scheme, NewBuy 95 per cent mortgages, part exchange if you already have a property to sell or we may be able to offer five per cent towards your deposit.

“Call in to see us at The Carriages from 11am on Saturday, or call 0844 375 7072 to find out more.”
