Persimmon Lancashire has launched a new development of affordable homes at hugely discounted prices, teaming up with Carlisle City Council to provide 22 beautiful homes at 70 per cent of their market value.

The initiative gives local families and those on low incomes a golden opportunity to take a step onto the property ladder.

The Teasdale Place development in Westmorland Street consists of two, three and four bedroom houses in the vibrant city of Carlisle, with prices from £80,497.

Allison Scott, sales manager, said: “Teasdale Place is a superb development which will allow residents to benefit from quiet suburban life, while the bustle of the city is only a 10 minute walk away.

“The affordable homes scheme in conjunction with Carlisle City Council gives buyers 30 per cent off the usual market price on 22 of the 37 homes being built here.

“That means that a two-bedroom terrace property is available today for £80,497 rather than the usual £114,995, or The Swale, a three bedroom end terrace house for £100,797 rather than the full asking price of £143,995. These are fantastic deals for local people.”

Teasdale Place is located within the Denton Holme district of Carlisle, often referred to as the ‘village within the city’. The development is convenient for those who want to commute into Carlisle, with easy access onto the M6 motorway and the A69.
