Work starts on new housing project near Northampton

30 April 2015

Persimmon Homes has started work on a major project near Northampton to create a new community.

Persimmon Homes Midlands will be building new homes at Harlestone Manor on the outskirts of the town, between New Duston and the village of Harlestone. Persimmon say there is already a huge amount of interest in the much-anticipated development as people are encouraged to register their interest in the site to be kept up to date.

Sales director Suzanne Irons said Persimmon were due to create more than 140 homes in the first part of the project. They will be building two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, she added, which would appeal to a wide cross-section of buyers.

“We believe Harlestone Manor will be popular because of its location as it will provide semi-rural living at its very best. It is ideal for first-time buyers, families and couples and we are urging buyers to hurry once the development is launched due to the amount of interest already being shown.”

The development is located next to Harlestone Firs, beautiful woodland which is already a favourite for walkers, joggers and mountain bikers. However, the site also has excellent road and rail links, with Northampton train station less than a mile away.

Suzanne added: “Harlestone Manor really will offer the best of both worlds, where residents can choose to step into a traditional, rural lifestyle or enjoy the many modern attractions, shops and leisure facilities nearby.

“Anyone buying off-plan will obviously have their pick of the plots and more of a say on the fixtures and fittings. And with schemes such as the Government-backed Help to Buy, it has never been a better time to buy a new-build home.”

Under the scheme, buyers need just a 5% deposit and a mortgage of up to 75% of the value of the property. The remainder is provided by a Government equity loan which is interest free for the first five years.
