Anwyl is opening show homes at Lawrence Gardens, Barton, by appointment only

THE SHOW home gardens at a blossoming new development in Barton will showcase how important outdoor space has become to buyers.

It’s a double milestone for Anwyl Homes. The family-run business is about to open fully furnished show homes at Lawrence Gardens by appointment only (from April 10). The company will also soon welcome the first homeowners to the development, where homes have been sold off plan since late autumn.

Until now, buyers have had to travel to nearby developments in Fulwood and Longridge to view finished examples of Anwyl’s homes.

Ahead of the show homes opening at Lawrence Gardens, Anwyl is offering “access all areas” via video footage and they’ve paid extra attention to the garden areas.

Sales director Matthew Gould explained: “As a result of life in lockdown there’s been a shift in people’s priorities when they’re looking to move and practical gardens have moved up their wish lists. In response to this we wanted to plant the seed for buyers at Lawrence Gardens as to how a garden can be an extension of the home.

“The show garden décor includes a wooden sleeper pathway leading to a pergola which can offer shade from the sun or perhaps shelter from the rain! And, as we can’t rely on the British weather, the access all areas film is the ideal solution to showcase the gardens to buyers in rain or shine.”

Other features of the show home gardens include bird and bat boxes, helping provide homes for nature and supporting the ecology of the site. Across the development there are small recesses  in fences, known as “hedgehog highways”, to help wildlife roam freely.

Anwyl will create an area of public open space at the heart of the Garstang Road development for residents to enjoy.

Lawrence Gardens offers 50 private sale properties in a choice of four-bedroom designs, with current prices from £294,995. The show homes are examples of the Hartford and Oakmere house types.

The Hartford features a lounge to the front, with open plan kitchen and dining room, plus utility and cloakroom to the rear.

In the Oakmere, the kitchen, dining and family room spans the entire width of the rear of the property. There’s also a dedicated study, perfect for regular or occasional working from home.

In both properties French doors offer direct access from the dining area to the garden.

Upstairs, they each have four bedrooms with an en-suite to the main bedroom to complement the family bathroom.

Situated in a semi-rural location in the heart of Lancashire, with easy access to the nearby cities of Preston and Lancaster, homes at Lawrence Gardens enjoy a setting that allows residents to choose their pace of life. It’s also close to the historic market town of Garstang with its array of independent shops and eateries, as well as a Booths supermarket.
