Reaction to Tabley Green homes supports Preston's reputation as best city to live and work in
Life in lockdown has led to a 40% increase in new homes sales in Preston - the Lancashire city that’s been named the best place to live and work in the North West.
Our popular Tabley Green in Fulwood, is just over four miles from the city centre and has homes that are ticking buyers’ boxes and giving families the space they need as we continue to spend more time at home.
So much so that almost 40% more homes have been sold since the initial lockdown was lifted in June than during the same period last year.
This comes after a recent report by PWC* showed that cities in the North West perform well in providing a good work-life balance, house prices compared to earnings and employment opportunities.
Sian Pitt, sales director for our Lancashire division, says: “It’s clear to see why Preston has such a pulling factor for buyers and outperforms many other North West cities in areas such as the availability of jobs, economic wellbeing and a positive work-life balance.
“The city is easily accessible from a number of major motorway networks so it’s easy to connect with the wider area and trains from Preston station take you to places such as Manchester, Liverpool, London, the Lake District and Edinburgh. Preston also has a great shopping offer with two major shopping centres plus plenty to do leisure-wise so everyone is happy.
“Homes at Tabley Green have had a great uptake since we emerged from the first lockdown and buyers are now looking for more suitable homes after being forced to spend more time at home for almost a year. Buyers don’t just need more space inside, they are also looking for larger gardens and want to be close to green open space and local shops for essentials.”
All homes at Tabley Green have a private garden and for those who want to venture out, Brockholes Nature Reserve is just over 10 minutes’ away, where over 250 acres of walks along the River Ribble, woodland and lakes can be explored.
For essentials, Sainsbury’s has a shop less than half a mile away and there is a Post Office close by too.
Homes currently available at the Lightfoot Lane development start at £284,995 for a four-bedroom detached Stratford and go up to £454,995 for a four-bedroom detached Henley that includes an integral garage.
There are also a number of the housebuilder’s three-bedroom ‘Lifestyle’ homes designed with fewer but larger bedrooms that each come with their own en-suite. These start at £319,995.
For those with an existing property to sell, our Help to Sell incentive uses local estate agents to find a buyer and also makes a contribution to selling fees.
