First Off-Plan Sale At Burscough Development

Posted 12 January 2021 by Keith Osborne

Keen buyers have begun to secure their favourite plot at an Anwyl Homes development taking shape north of Ormskirk...

Anwyl Homes has seen the first home be snapped up off-plan at its latest Lancashire development, Priory Gardens in Burscough. In addition, another keen buyer has made an ‘early bird’ reservation on a property not yet brought to market.

The sale comes as almost 2,000 people have viewed the homebuilder’s ‘Access All Areas’ film via social media. This tells the story behind the new homes and introduces some of the people involved – including an award-winning site manager overseeing the build.

Matthew Gould, sales director for Anwyl Homes Lancashire, said: “We’ve enjoyed excellent early interest in Priory Gardens, fuelled by the great location, the wide choice of thoughtfully designed, quality new homes, availability of low interest rates for borrowers and the re-introduction of 90% mortgages by some high street lenders.

“Those buying now off-plan, before we unveil our show homes in the summer, have the opportunity to benefit from early pricing, lots of choice and more potential to personalise their home through specification choices made early in the build process.

“The feedback for Priory Gardens and our homes has all been really positive. People have told us they love the layouts and are impressed by the amount of space the homes offer. They have also commented on how many different house types we have.”

Anwyl Homes has a range of digital resources available for people to get a feel for the new homes being built, including virtual tours and show home videos – but there are also options for those who need to see the homes up close and personal.

Gould added: “People can’t wait for the show homes at Priory Gardens to open and as we have properties available to view in St Helens, Liverpool and Fulwood, all within a 30-40-minute drive from Burscough, they’ve been booking appointments at those developments so that they can view finished examples of similar homes.”

The first phase of Priory Gardens – part of the wider Yew Tree Park venture in Burscough – will feature 87 three and four-bedroom homes. The completed development comprises 267 properties. Every home will include an electric vehicle charging point and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) broadband, as well as being energy efficient and covered by the NHBC 10-year Buildmark warranty. Prices start at £239,000.

Located almost halfway between Preston and Liverpool, Burscough is a thriving community with shops, schools and services, including a sports and fitness centre, Tesco and Booths supermarkets, plus well-regarded local business Taylors Farm Shop. Burscough Wharf is home to eateries, an arts centre and artisan market; while nearby Ormskirk offers a further choice of shopping and leisure options. The area offers an enviable choice of good and outstanding schools, making it an ideal place for families.

Two train stations locally provide direct services to Preston in less than 30 minutes, Manchester in around an hour, and via Ormskirk for Liverpool in 50 minutes.

“It’s such an accessible area with plenty of local amenities nearby but, at the same time, it has the advantage of quite rural surroundings,” commented Gould. “The huge range of house types gives the development a lot of variety and means it can appeal to everyone from young first time buyers and families to older downsizers. We’re confident everyone can find what they are looking for.”
