New Lancashire homes attract a ‘queue’ of buyers


Wednesday 15th September 2010

Prospective new home buyers flocked to Fleetwood last weekend where they queued to get a glimpse of some of Redrow's brand new homes launched at Harbour Village, which offers a wide range of new build homes for sale.

Harbour Village, in Fleetwood, is Redrow's latest development to be launched in Lancashire, offering something for almost every type of buyer.

"People were waiting to get in when we first opened the sales office," said Redrow area sales manager Lesley Myers. "More than 70 people visited over the opening weekend. A number of potential purchasers have asked about the HomeBuy Direct scheme and we are dealing with several enquiries for Mastermove from those with an existing property still to sell. We're very pleased with the interest in Harbour Village and have taken eight sales in the first few weeks."

The new homes being built by Redrow, where pices start from £119,995 for a two-bedroom home, are just one of the major changes helping to transform Fleetwood.

A £100m scheme to upgrade the tramway linking Fleetwood and Blackpool is underway and is expected to be complete by 2012. There are also plans for a £1.6m development to change the face of Fleetwood's seafront, plus revised plans to redevelop the former pier site have now been submitted by Simmo Developments.

"It's an exciting time for Fleetwood and we at Redrow are proud to be playing our part by providing quality built homes," Myers added.

"We had a sizeable database of interested parties before the sales launch so knew that there was a demand for new homes in the area and our New Heritage Collection properties certainly appear to be hitting the spot."

A choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes are now on sale at Harbour Village, including designs from Redrow's New Heritage Collection of traditional looking properties with the latest statement-making interiors styled for modern living.

As well as local families looking to trade up and first time buyers interested in the Government-backed HomeBuy Direct scheme, Redrow say that they are dealing with a number of enquiries from people wanting to downsize their home and move to a modern, more manageable home in a coastal location.

Later phases will include new homes facing the marina, including some plots with views out over the estuary.

Would-be purchasers can see video footage of the New Heritage Collection product at Buckshaw Village and Sandhurst Gardens on Redrow TV.
