Buyers set sights on Clitheroe homes post-lockdown
Homes at our Oak Leigh Gardens development are meeting buyers’ changing requirements with 70% more sales during the last six months than the same period last year.
When the initial national lockdown eased earlier this year, the development, on Whalley Road, saw an influx of prospective buyers in search of a home that would give them everything they need.
Sian Pitt, sales director for the Lancashire division said: “The pent-up demand for homes meant that we had lots of interest at developments across Lancashire however Oak Leigh Gardens has seen a huge surge in the number of sales between May and November when comparing it to the same period in 2019.
“In a survey we conducted with buyer’s post-lockdown, we asked whether they were reassessing how they wanted to use space in their home and what features they wanted in their next home.
“The results showed that, across the North West, the most important factors to buyers were for their homes to have larger kitchens and private outdoor space.”
Oak Leigh Gardens has fantastic choice for buyers thanks to two distinct new homes collections that include a number of three and four-bedroom homes. All homes also come with their own private gardens and open-plan kitchen and dining areas.
“Oak Leigh Gardens ticks all the boxes when it comes to what buyers want from their homes and the development quite literally has something for everyone so I think this has been one of the main attractions for buyers,” adds Sian.
While the Heritage Collection offers traditional Arts and Crafts inspired architecture with period style features, the Harwood range provides streamlined, smart exteriors, finished in stone, for those who prefer a more contemporary look. Both collections offer up to the minute interiors designed for modern lifestyles.
Nestled between Pendle Hill and the Forest of Bowland, in the sought-after Ribble Valley, Oak Leigh Gardens’ rural location has also proved to be an attractive selling point, especially as it’s so well connected.
Sian continues: “Our survey also showed that being close to green open space is an important community feature for buyers and Oak Leigh Gardens is surrounded by this including being less than 10 minutes away from the start of the Pendle Hill Circular Walk.”
Situated just off the main A59 Preston Road, the homes are close to the M6; Clitheroe is less than three miles away and places like Blackburn, Burnley, Preston and even Manchester are all easily reached.
Closer to home, there’s an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated primary school just a short walk away, and two ‘outstanding’ rated senior schools within a couple of miles.
