A housing provider has completed 13 new homes in a rural village in Cumbria that were built with local people in mind.
The properties represent the second phase of Castles & Coasts Housing’s Crookfield development in Staveley in the South Lakeslands area.
Ten of the homes are for “affordable” rent and shared ownership, while the remaining three are dormer bungalows intended for sale on the open market. However, prospective residents of the new homes must be able to demonstrate a connection to Staveley.
“We have been delighted by the response to this new development and we’re not surprised that interest was so high. The affordable tenures have been over subscribed, highlighting the pent up demand in this beautiful area,” said David Brown, head of development at Castles & Coasts.
“We are committed to building high quality homes in the communities we serve because we know that is what people want, and the extension of the Crookfield development is a prime example of this. This is the second scheme of its kind we’ve delivered in Staveley and we’re confident that it will prove a welcome extension to this fabulous village.”
