Harbour Village Offers Home Buyers the Best Catch

Fleetwood is a town whose name is synonymous with fishing and people here still know a thing or two about a good catch.

And that means buyers casting their net around Redrow’s Harbour Village development will appreciate they’ll be hauling in a superb home – especially after its site manager was awarded one of his industry’s top accolades!

Tony Diprose, 45, has won a Seal of Excellence in the second stage of the NHBC’s Pride in the Job awards, which puts him in the country’s top 1% of his profession.

While he has been a site manager for eight years, it’s the father-of-two’s first year with Redrow and he is understandably thrilled to win the prestigious title: “These awards are so hard to get, they don't hand them out like sweets, you have to earn them. It feels great that I have earned mine and with Redrow.

“Our site is very much a team effort and I couldn't have won this award by myself. The guys have won it with me.”

But it doesn’t just mean success for Tony and his team; it’s also good news for customers who can be assured more than ever of the quality and high standard of homes at Harbour Village, built under Tony’s watchful and demanding eyes.

“I want a happy site where people want to come to work, but I want people to put that extra few per cent in and work to a very high standard – the best,” says the father of twin 10-year-old daughters Daisy and Olivia.

And that is just what buyers are promised at Harbour Village, perched on the tip of the Fylde peninsula. The seaside development offers some stunning views and plenty of fresh air for lucky buyers, as well as a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, including some larger executive homes with picture windows and balconies overlooking the Wyre estuary. And there are still plenty of homes available to reel in.

Currently they include a one-bedroom Hayeswater apartment from £89,995. It boasts a 22ft open-plan living area with a fully fitted kitchen, dining and living area, together with a handy laundry room, and a spacious bedroom and bathroom.

And there are larger properties too, like the four-bedroom Redwing house style, selling from £265,995. Its contemporary design includes a beautiful balcony from which to admire the scenery.

Open plan, and hugely impressive, the accommodation includes an elegant lounge and a fully-fitted kitchen/dining area. Of the four bedrooms, three are doubles, offering ample space, and the master bedroom benefits from a luxurious en-suite bathroom.

Redrow has also just introduced the four-bedroom Kensington townhouse with integral garage, overlooking the neighbouring marina and priced from only £209,995 for a mid-terrace.

And, of course, these homes and all the others, are being built under Tony’s award-winning leadership and scrutiny, which means owners can be guaranteed the best homes possible.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “We work as a team at Redrow and every member of our workforce strives to build the best homes possible. We take pride in what we do, and no-one displays that 100% commitment more than Tony who has won this incredible award.

“It is a brilliant achievement for him and excellent news for Harbour Village customers, for whom the very best is assured.”

Buyers can benefit from Tony’s success more readily too thanks to incentives like Help to Buy, the government’s 20% equity loan scheme, interest free for the first five years, which means buyers only have to find a 5% deposit and secure a 75% mortgage from a lender of choice.

A smaller mortgage means lower monthly repayments in those crucial first few years,” Claire adds. “And customers with an existing property to sell can use Redrow’s Mastermove service, which recruits the skills and experience of a local estate agent with Redrow either contributing to or paying in full the customer’s selling fees at the end of the day.”
