Barnoldswick’s the place to be

In a huge boost for the town, developers of a new prestigious housing development have earmarked Barnoldswick as 'the place to live'.

In a move that is being widely welcomed, Berkeley DeVeer Homes are now delivering on plans to address Pendle's lack of quality new build family homes – and boost stock in the area which has been limited over the past five years.

Dan Hardcastle, head of sales for Berkeley DeVeer said: “We’ve been looking at this location for a number of years now. Pendle, and especially Barnoldswick is an extremely sought after location being close to both Manchester and Leeds, but until now buyers in the area have had little choice with very few quality new homes coming to market.

"We felt that Pendle would really benefit from a high quality development like Kensington Forest, and we anticipate a strong demand when we launch with our Open Weekend over the Easter weekend this month.

"The attention to detail and the careful and painstaking craftsmanship we’ve applied to Kensington Forest elevates our houses into homes. From the outset, we have worked hard to make sure our customers can be proud of their homes”

Kensington Forest, situated near Silentnight in Barnoldswick, is set to become one of the most prestigious addresses in Pendle and Berkeley DeVeer has teamed up with local agents Petty.

Dan said: “It was important to us that Petty had a good working knowledge of the local area and that they’re well established, well known and well respected in the area with a similar ethos to our own”. 

"We see this development as being attractive not only to locals, but also people looking to relocate here from outside the area. Pendle is easily commutable to Manchester and Leeds and has a lot to offer in terms of work life balance for a family.”

Ian Bythell, residential director at Petty, added: “As the area's only member of the Relocation Agent Network we’re uniquely placed to recognise the offering Kensington Forrest provides for people looking to relocate to Pendle. It will be a huge boost and provide additional high quality housing stock to the area.”

Berkeley DeVeer are on course to have the whole development completed by the end of 2019 with the first residents already in-situ.
