Exactly 14 years after it opened the very first show homes at Buckshaw Village, developer Redrow Homes will unveil its final development within this landmark urban village.
Launching at the end of April, West Point will feature a total of 21 properties conveniently close to some of Buckshaw Village’s key amenities, including the railway station and the Tesco superstore. As such the homes are likely to appeal to first time buyers and young professionals, especially those wishing to commute by train from Buckshaw Parkway to Preston (circa 15 minutes) or even the centre of Manchester (50 minutes).
The home designs are based on Redrow’s Georgian inspired Regent Collection which lends itself to more urban environments. Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “It’s hard to believe that, after all these years, we are coming to the last of our housing developments at Buckshaw Village.
“We’re very proud to have played such a big part in transforming the redundant ROF Chorley site into a wonderful new community of homes, businesses, shops, a school, pub, leisure facilities and green spaces, with Redrow being one of the lead partners since day one.
“Planning for the project began well over 15 years ago and we launched our very first show homes in April 2003. Now we have only our remaining Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection homes at Heritage Brook and the 21 properties at West Point to build out.
“By the time we finish, Redrow will have contributed a total of 1,270 homes to the overall village and jointly funded a wide range of community facilities.”
Situated on Ordnance Road, within walking distance of the local primary school, 17 of the 21 West Point homes will be for private sale and Redrow will offer a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes. Prices are expected to start from around £154,995 for a two-bedroom house with parking.
The Government backed Help to Buy scheme will be available, offering the potential of a 20% equity loan, interest free for five years.
“This means would-be home owners should be able to buy with only a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage from a lender of choice,” Claire explains.
