A construction milestone has been reached at a new housing development in Kendal which is creating a new southern gateway to the town.
Jones Homes is building 110 homes at Stonecross Meadows, a new development located off Milnthorpe Road.
The landmark front row of 10 houses, which sit next to the site entrance behind the preserved drystone wall running along Milnthorpe Road, have now been completed and their buyers have moved in.
A total of 13 homes at Stonecross Meadows are now occupied and a further seven have been reserved off-plan.
When completed, Stonecross Meadows will comprise 72 houses for private sale and 38 affordable homes. There will be a mix of three, four and five-bedroom homes at the development.
Carol Barlow, Sales Director for Jones Homes Lancashire, said: “Stonecross Meadows is our first development in Kendal and marks the beginning of our expansion into Cumbria.
“The development sits in a fantastic location on the southern edge of Kendal and has been carefully designed to provide an attractive gateway to the town which is very much in keeping with the character of the area. The completion of the landmark front row of houses marks a significant milestone for the development and we’re really pleased with how the site is progressing.
“It’s been wonderful to welcome the first residents into their homes at Stonecross Meadows and see a brand-new community beginning to form at the development. There has been a great deal of interest in the new homes at Stonecross Meadows, which is reflected by the fact they are selling off-plan.
“The location is undoubtedly proving a major draw for buyers as it offers the best of both worlds – easy access to the Lake District but without the price premium that homes within the National Park boundary command.”
As part of the planning agreement for Stonecross Meadows, Jones Homes is contributing £279,300 towards education services in Kendal. This is in addition to £32,500 which the housebuilder has paid towards road junction improvements linked to the development.
A selection of four-bedroom homes are currently available at Stonecross Meadows, with prices starting from £302,995.
