Get on board for canal-side comfort before sold sign is anchored

Redrow is preparing to put the sold sign up at its beautiful Canal View development, in Garstang, but there’s still a chance to get on board with a handful of homes to buy.

There are only eight properties still for sale but, nevertheless, there is a great mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes, which means first-time buyers, growing families and downsizers can all find something to suit them at the waterside location.

But with 90% of the development already gone, buyers will have to steer themselves quickly into action to get themselves locked into a des-res deal.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “Everything about Garstang makes it such a wonderful place to live, whether you’re looking for somewhere steeped in history, with a strong community spirit and conveniently situated with access to larger towns and cities; or, simply, a postcard-pretty location!”

And that also explains why Redrow’s development has been so popular.

“Now, with only a few homes left to sell, would-be buyers need to beat a path to our door if they want to be one of the latest, and quite possibly the last, residents in this sought-after market town,” Claire adds.

Among the remaining homes is a selection of four-bedroom detached houses from £314,995, all of which are from Redrow’s award-winning Heritage collection combining traditional Arts & Crafts exteriors with modern and spacious interiors.

All have open-plan kitchen and dining areas, which will undoubtedly become the hub of the home; and the master bedrooms each have an ensuite.

The three-bedroom dormer bungalow, the Bournemouth, from £424,995, is incredibly roomy. It has the majority of its living space, including two bedrooms, on the ground floor but there is a double bedroom and en-suite in the roofspace.

“With its three double bedrooms, including one with en-suite, an extensive open plan living, dining and kitchen area and an integral double garage, there’s plenty of space for everyone, from growing families to visiting grandchildren,” Claire says.

The final option is the two-bedroom Tavy from only £143,995, which completes the complement of homes. Downstairs is a large open plan living area with French doors to the garden creating an even greater sense of space, while upstairs are two generous bedrooms, including a twin which is perfect for children to share.

The Tavy property benefits from being sold at 80% of market value under the ‘Advantage’ scheme banner. It’s available to purchasers who live or work locally and have a combined household income of less than £60,000; and the discount has to be passed on when they come to sell.
