FAMILIES HOME IN ON CARLISLE
28 July 2017
Families seeking a well-located home in which to bring up children and be close to work have been homing in on Carlisle, according to one prominent housebuilder in the city.
Lovell Homes, building 52 new properties at New Acres, says families have been choosing to lay down roots in their selection of three-bedroom properties, and they’re taking advantage of the support afforded by the Help to Buy scheme to do it.
Clare Noakes, regional sales director for Lovell in the North West, says: “Carlisle is a fantastic location in which to bring up a family and we’ve been inundated with interest from young families in particular, who want to secure their own home in the area.
“New Acres is so close to Carlisle City Centre yet the immediate vicinity has a real village feel with great local facilities including schools and open spaces on the doorstep, being close to Heysham Park and several play areas.
“With the added support of Help to Buy, many are opting to buy a larger home, to ensure they have a home they can grow into over many years to come.”
Among the homes now available at New Acres is the family friendly three-bedroom Berkley, from £132,500.
Downstairs, there is a spacious kitchen/dining room to the front of the home, along with WC, while the living room is based to the rear, with desirable French doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs, the master bedroom has an ensuite, while the two remaining bedrooms can make use of the family bathroom.
This stylish home includes high quality finishes as standard such as Bosch Fan assisted oven with gas hob, integrated fridge freezer, spotlights to kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom and ceramic tiling.
With the extra support of the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which enables buyers to pay only a 5% deposit of £6,625, and 20% courtesy of the government’s equity loan which is interest free for five years, buyers of the Berkley need only find a 75%; reducing the initial outlay and meaning lower mortgage payments in those early years.
Situated in an established residential area in Carlisle, New Acres offers a great selection of local shops, schools and parks, all within walking distance.
