Persimmon Lancashire has opened a new showhome on a Cumbrian development to give buyers a glimpse of what it would be like to live there.

The regional housebuilder is creating a new site at Bellaport Gardens in the popular village of Harrington.

The development boasts a wide range of properties including two, three and four-bedroom homes which provide contemporary living with two-storey and three-storey properties. Prices start at £107,995.

The new showhome, the Penshaw, offers three storey living with a stunning top floor master bedroom with en suite.

Diane Finch, sales and marketing director, said: “Bellaport Gardens is appealing to a wide range of buyers, including first-time, professional couples, growing families and downsizers. It is in a great location and proving to be really sought-after. There are excellent commuter links as well as great amenities on the doorstep and good schools.

“It goes without saying, that it is a great spot for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Harrington, which has its own harbour, is on the Cumbrian coast on the outskirts of Workington and around four miles to the north of Whitehaven.”

Residents of Bellaport Gardens will also benefit from local shops and churches as well as high street retailers in nearby Workington. Harrington train station on the scenic Cumbrian Coast Line is less than half-a-mile away providing services to local destinations such as Sellafield or Carlisle.

Diane added:  “The development really does offer the best of both worlds, especially with the Lake District nearby with all its stunning scenery, towns and walks. Days out and weekends away could not be easier. ”

Diane added: “It has never been a better time to move with schemes such as Help to Buy available. Buyers need just a 5% deposit while the Government provides a 20% equity loan, which is interest and repayment free for the first five years, meaning buyers just need a 75% mortgage. Our sales advisors are here to help guide people through the process.”

Other schemes available include Home Change, which can be used with Help to Buy, where Persimmon Homes markets your home and pays your estate agent fees.  Part Exchange is also available.
