DAILY walks became part of the new normal over the last year and a new Anwyl home in Longridge could help buyers take strides towards a better way of life.

The homebuilder’s Stonebridge Fold development is on the doorstep of the beautiful Lancashire countryside with a host of walks and hikes, including many through the fells and valleys of Bowland and a short drive away at Pendle Hill.

“Even close to home there are plans for the Longridge Loop – a five-mile route for walkers and cyclists around the town itself as part of the council’s Longridge Neighbourhood Development plans,” says Matthew Gould, sales director for Anwyl Homes Lancashire. “It will mean there’ll be no excuse for not getting the walking shoes on and heading off into the surrounding area.

“The restrictions of the past year have helped people realise how important it is to get outdoors, and the benefit nature can have on our health and well-being. As lockdown is lifted, getting the balance in our lives right has never been more important and that’s why our Stonebridge Fold development is so perfect. It boasts a stunning location where homebuyers can be close to a wonderful outdoor environment and come home to a beautiful and relaxing new home.

“It seems a cliché now to talk about the best of both worlds, but that’s exactly what Stonebridge Fold offers.”

Located on Whittingham Road, Stonebridge Fold offers 83 homes in a choice of three and four-bedroom homes, ideal for a good range of buyers.

Current pricing starts at £286,995 for the four-bedroom Farndon, a superb home with a spacious kitchen and dining room spanning the width of the property, French doors lead out onto the garden. There’s the option to add a kitchen island which is an ideal place for the family to gather round.

There’s also a lounge at the front and, of course, that now-essential downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs are four food-sized bedrooms, including main bedroom with en-suite, and a family bathroom.

Among the homes available is plot 42, a Hartford style property priced from £360,995. For a limited time only, Anwyl is offering to pay the Stamp Duty on this home and offer £1,000 towards legal fees, plus a further £1,000 towards moving costs.

For those with young children, there are several well-regarded schools near to Stonebridge Fold and, for all homeowners, easy access to Longridge town centre and all its amenities, including a Booths supermarket, independent shops, and a host of bars and restaurants.

Having the M6 and M55 motorways close by makes Longridge and Stonebridge Fold a good base for commuting across the North West and beyond. And Longridge is only eight miles from Preston city centre, and its train station provides access to all major rail networks and travel to the larger cities of Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.
