Burnley has recently been named one of the ‘top five to thrive’ towns in the North West by Estates Gazette and is also consistently ranked in the UK’s top 10 for private-sector jobs growth.
With top developments such as The Vision Park, The Technology Park, UCLan looking to further increase their campus and the Town Centre improvements, as well as Burnley’s great connectivity to the major North West cities, the need for good quality housing that appeals to the young upwardly mobile generation is becoming ever greater.
Barnfield Homes has responded to this increased demand, with its iconic development in the heart of Burnley’s Victorian Industrial Quarter, Bridgewalk Apartments. It is part of the On The Banks Development and is leading the way in the town’s regeneration and housing boom.
Commented Charlotte Pickup, Marketing Manager, Barnfield Construction: “It is fantastic news that 10 out of the 16 high spec, modern and stylish apartments have already been snapped up just two weeks after the show apartment opening, demonstrating the desire and need for accommodation like this in the area. It is also testament to the quality and location of the apartments we provided.”
Simon Morgan from Petty’s, acting agents for Barnfield Homes development added: “We’ve had wonderful feedback from the purchasers that they liked the fact that the apartments were only able to be sold to owner-occupiers, with no investors being able to buy and rent out. We feel this demonstrates a real upturn in the local housing market and a real desire to live in top quality, town centre homes such as these.”
“The value for money offered by developments like Bridgewalk Apartments, the amenities that are close by and the easy commute either by rail or road to the rest of the North West, means Burnley is an extremely attractive proposition to many, especially first-time buyers.”
