Home Construction Work starts on highly anticipated Lake District development

Work starts on highly anticipated Lake District development


Work is now underway on one of the Lake District’s most anticipated developments, which will see an exclusive collection of 43 homes set on the banks of the River Leven marketed by Savills. Savills has been instructed by Duff & Phelps on behalf of Investec Bank to provide development consultancy, sales and marketing for the scheme.

Situated within the Lake District National Park in the idyllic village of Backbarrow, the prestigious development – named Ironworks – will include a selection of one and two bedroom apartments, three bedroom duplex homes and four bedroom triplex homes.

Ryan Blair, associate in the residential development sales team at Savills Manchester, comments: “This is an incredibly long awaited scheme within the area which has expectedly generated an incredible amount of interest since its launch last week.

“All 43 homes will be completed to a very high standard and their secluded position within the sleepy village of Backbarrow with the Lakes on the doorstep, coupled with the ease of access into the northern centres of both Manchester and Liverpool in under two hours adds to their appeal.”

The properties, which will be marketed off plan with unrestricted ownership following an initial three month locally focussed marketing campaign, will benefit from modern features throughout including stylish living rooms with natural oak timber flooring and floor to ceiling windows creating bright and airy spaces.

“It is an incredibly exciting prospect to offer a variety of new homes of this stature to the market and for buyers to have the opportunity to be part of something very special”, adds Ryan. “Interest has been so strong that we will be operating on a first come, first served basis so I would advise interested parties to contact us sooner rather than later to avoid missing out”.

Completion is expected from spring 2019, with show homes available to view early next year. Prices start from £130,000 for a 1 bedroom apartment through to £395,000 for one of two 4 bedroom triplex homes.
