Local buyers have been offered the chance to snap up a beautiful new home in Bury at a hugely discounted price.

Persimmon North West has joined forces with Bury Council to provide affordable homes, at 75 per cent of their market value, at the Scholars View development in Walshaw Road.

Sales director David Hodgson said: “At Scholars View there are homes for everyone – from single professionals and first time buyers, to growing families and downsizers.

“The development offers a superb range of two, three and four bedroom homes, only a short distance from Burrs Country Park and all of Bury’s nightlife, shopping and leisure facilities.

“Qualifying local people can purchase a new home at Scholars View at a 25 per cent discount on the full market value of the property. This means a two bedroom Moulton style home could be just £97,500, rather than the normal price of £130,000.

“We also have the Souter three storey, three bedroom home, which includes a lovely top floor master bedroom with en suite dressing room, available at the discounted price of £125,246 – a great deal for a local person.”
