Retirement property for sale in Lancashire

Lancashire is a county that offers so much variety, from major cities to picturesque villages, from thriving towns to famous coastal resorts. It has beautiful, scenic countryside such as the Ribble Valley. It's also a county that has gone through a renaissance in recent years as it strives to compete with the economic might of the South East. Part of that renaissance has involved the building of new houses and for those wishing to live here, there are many new home developments taking place across the region.

Property, in general, across Lancashire is relatively affordable compared to some other parts of England. One town that typifies the county is Preston. Known by many, primarily, for being a transport hub, it's a town that has gone through much change and rebuilding in recent times. Nowadays, it provides a healthy, pleasant environment in which to bring up a family.

One very strong point about Lancashire is the exceptional infrastructure the county has, particularly in terms of transport. Towns and cities have excellent road and rail links with each other as well as with elsewhere in the UK. The M6 runs through the county providing a quick route north towards Scotland or south towards London. From east to west you have the M62 connecting Manchester and Liverpool and reaching the east coast of England. From the major cities and towns there are direct rail links to London and Scotland making this area an ideal hub for travelling right across the British Isles. Manchester Airport, meanwhile, has direct flights to every corner of the world.

Manchester itself is another city that has gone from strength to strength in recent years and you'll find every type of property to suit all budgets in this rapidly expanding metropolis. Like Liverpool to the west, if you're looking for smaller, modern studio apartments in the heart of a city, this is where you should go with many new-build apartment blocks being built here.

The county town of Lancaster towards the north is known for the high quality of life it provides and many will tell you there isn't a better place to live in the whole of the UK. A university town, it's on the West Coast Main Line and just three miles from the M6. The highly-regarded Redrow  is just one new home builder to have a presence here.

Some other towns worth mentioning for new house opportunities in Lancashire are Blackburn, Chorley, Bolton, Morecambe, Stockport and Warrington. Meanwhile, some smaller places to look out for include Darwen, Clitheroe, Burscough and St-Annes-On-Sea.

  Monthly Budget
Our monthly budget search provides a monthly cost estimate for the different ownership options available to you. These range from ‘outright purchase’, ‘shared ownership’ and ‘rent’ options. As with any property purchase you should seek independent financial advice.

For outright purchase the monthly mortgage cost estimate is based on an interest only mortgage at a 5.95% annual interest rate, over 25 years with a 10% deposit.

For ‘shared ownership’ the monthly cost is based on an interest only mortgage rate of 5.95% per annum over 25 years with annual interest of 2.75% on the unsold share.

For ‘rent’ the monthly cost is based on the rental from the landlord or Build to Rent organisation who owns the property.
