Successful launch at The Carriages

A prestigious new homes development in the popular village of Burscough is already exceeding all expectations – with half of the first phase sold before the showhome has even opened!

Househunters are snapping up early reservations at The Carriages, the latest site from Persimmon Homes, taking advantage of the pick of the plots and pre-showhome prices.

Sales and marketing director Diane Finch said: “The Carriages is a superb development of 66 new family homes on the historic site of the former Ainscough Mill.

“But several people couldn’t even wait for the showhome to be launched. As soon as the marketing suite opened we received calls and visits, with buyers keen to be the first to select their dream home and 11 out of the first phase of 22 properties have already been snapped up.”

The Carriages, on Junction Lane, Burscough, offers three, four and five bedroom traditional family homes with prices starting at £194,995.

Diane added: “Buying a house before a single brick is laid might seem risky, but for many people it is the perfect way to secure their preferred property at the best price. And, if you reserve early enough you can select fixtures and fittings from a range of Finishing Touches, ensuring your new residence really is the home of your dreams.”

Kitchen units, flooring, tiles or accessories can be tailored to meet the individual buyer’s taste, depending on the build stage of each house.

“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,” said Diane.

“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.”

“We have a number of schemes to help people to secure the house of their dreams, including the Help To Buy shared equity scheme, 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 Thursday to Monday, 11am to 6pm or call 01704 894463 7072 to find out more.”
