Prospective house buyers are being urged to hurry if they want to buy a new home at a Greater Manchester development after the builder has recorded a surge in reservations.

Persimmon Homes North West’s new development, Hardy’s Gate in Radcliffe, is being snapped up by buyers with half of the properties released in its first phase already reserved.

David Hodgson, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes North West, said: “With the location of the houses, it’s not a surprise that they’ve been as popular as they have.

“Out of the first 20 plots made available, half have been snapped up by people keen to secure their dream property at pre-showhome prices.

“There is something here to suit everyone’s needs whether you’re buying your first home or need more space for your growing family.”

Hardy’s Gate, set in the undulating Irwell Valley, offers a variety of two, three and four-bedroom homes, priced from £124,995, which have been designed with modern living in mind.

A number of the plots are ready to move into by Christmas and Persimmon is offering buyers the chance to win the interest on their mortgage paid for the next two years if they reserve and complete before 24 December.

David added: “This is a sought-after location near to Bury and Manchester with a great choice of quality schools for children of all ages and, with easy access the motorway network and convenient shopping and leisure facilities close by, it’s a fantastic place to call home.”

There is also an abundance of local parks and leisure facilities nearby, including Burrs Country park.

Buyers can also benefit from the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, which means they only need a five per cent deposit along with a 75 per cent mortgage, while the Government supplies a 20 per cent equity loan, which is interest and repayment free for the first five years.
