Annington will launch an exclusive collection of 23 refurbished three-bedroom homes on Friday 13th May.

Formerly military married quarters, the homes have been given a new lease of life through light refurbishment works, providing a great opportunity for people living in the borough, or with a strong local connection, to access homeownership.

Warton has seen a mini-property boom over the last year, with sold prices increasing by 16% and nearby Preston was recently named the best place to work and live in the North West for the third year running. With prices starting from £120,000 the homes will provide the ideal opportunity for first time buyers looking to get onto the ladder.

Nicola Lindsay, branch manager at selling agent Reeds Rains, comments: “Warton is a great place to live. The community has everything needed for a comfortable lifestyle, but it is still close to the city. This combined with regeneration in the area, the upcoming HS2 and plenty of green space, should make Warton even more attractive as a place to live.

Louise Saunders, Sales and Marketing Manager at Annington, adds: “We’re expecting the homes in Warton to be very popular with local buyers, including families and renters that are looking to purchase their first home. The properties are a blank canvas with scope for further improvement so that buyers can put their stamp on their new home.”

The local high street offers an array of pubs, hairdressers, cafes, and restaurants. There are plenty of shops for residents to make use of including Spar, Morrisons Daily and Tesco Express. Bridges Playing fields are less than a 10 minute walk away, where community groups meet, such as Warton Football Club. The new homes are just a 10 minute walk from the two schools in the village, Warton St Paul's Church of England Primary Academy, and Holy Family Catholic Primary School.

Just 20 minutes’ drive from Preston and Blackpool, the attractive coastal setting is a real draw for buyers; the nearby St Annes Beach is best known for its Victorian pier and sand dunes, while a little further afield is Morecombe Bay, renowned across the UK for high adrenaline outdoor activities from sailing, windsurfing and powered paragliding.

For commuters, key road links including the M55 and M6 are easily accessible by car. The upcoming HS2 high-speed rail line, which calls at the nearby Preston Station, puts London within even closer reach, with travel to London Euston Station taking just one hour and 18 minutes, knocking 50 minutes off the current fastest journey.
