CUMBRIAN HOMES START CONSTRUCTION AT SEDBERGH
Posted on 15 Mar 2012
Cumbrian Homes have started construction work on their latest development at Sedbergh in South Cumbria. Overlooking the town, the development will contain 12 new homes built in local stone in a variety of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom designs, some of which will incorporate first floor living areas to take advantage of the incredible views.
"Site Manager, Barry Hodgson, and Commercial Manager, Scott Edwards, from Cumbrian Homes on site as construction begins."
The homes will be the first new development within the town for many years and will also be built to the very latest standards - the 2010 Building Regulations - which incorporate extremely high levels of energy efficiency, thereby saving home owners money in the long run on their fuel costs.
Cumbrian Homes' Managing Director, Nigel Pallister, commented. "The development has caused a huge amount of interest since we first announced the purchase some 18 months ago with one of the 12 homes already reserved and some very serious enquiries currently being discussed for other plots."
"It's a superb site in a truly beautiful location and the very fact that we're beginning to build here does show an upsurge in confidence in the new homes market as a whole. We hope to be able to release further details and prices for the first phase of the 12 homes we're releasing for sale in the near future, but would recommend interested potential buyers to contact us as soon as possible to become involved in the design stage of the construction process, ensuring their new home is almost tailor-made to their individual requirements with room layouts and finishes able to be altered at this stage."
Sedbergh, located just 5 miles from access to the M6 and close to Kendal, one of the South Cumbria's most picturesque market towns, is actually in Cumbria, although it also sits within the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and home to some 2,700 residents and the famous public school. Recently, the town has re-invented itself as a Book Town with the local economy boosted by a loose collection of businesses based around books and their production.
