A street scene of Elan homes, similar to those at St Catherine’s Gardens, Lowton

FOUR sales in as many weeks is proof of high demand for new homes in Lowton.

The early success of St Catherine’s Gardens, a new housing development from Elan Homes, points to a buoyant local market.

Show homes are now open to view by appointment only and the Elan Homes sales team has welcomed a steady stream of visitors eager to secure a new home at the earliest opportunity.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Based on our previous developments in nearby Croft and Culcheth we knew there was a demand for new homes in Lowton. We had a strong database of potential purchasers who had registered interest in St Catherine’s Gardens and many of those people made appointments to view the show homes at the earliest opportunity.

“The number of viewings arranged shows confidence in the housing market, with four sales in as many weeks. We anticipate increased interest now that Stamp Duty has been suspended as the tax saving will help buyers’ money go further.”

Located on Newton Road, St Catherine’s Gardens will comprise just 26 homes in a choice of two, three and four-bedroom styles.

Subject to criteria, selected two and three-bedroom homes are available at a discount to market rate with prices from £114,995,

Open market prices start from £299,995 for a four-bedroom Sheldon, similar to one of the show homes.

“Construction is progressing well and we’re expecting to be able to welcome the first residents into their new homes at St Catherine’s Gardens pre-Christmas,” Marie added.

Along with building new homes, Elan is retaining existing trees at the rear of the site, carrying out additional planting and providing bird boxes and bat bricks to offer homes for nature.

Electric vehicle charging points are being installed at St Catherine’s Gardens as part of Elan’s commitment to sustainable development.

The homebuilder has also pledged almost £45,000 worth of funding for nearby Pennington Flash Country Park.
