Cumbria is a county in the north of England, and one of the most beautiful places to live. There are many factors that go into choosing where to live, but Cumbria has something for everyone! From the beautiful scenery to the great schools, there’s no wonder why it has become such a popular place. Read on for more information about this wonderful region.
Penrith is an excellent location for the region – at the junction of the M6 and A66, and on the main West Coast railway line. Just outside the Lake District National Park, prices are lower than they would be a few miles into the Lakes, but access is easy. A reasonable range of shops and other local facilities make this a great location in the NW. The development is situated on the edge of town, 5 mins walk from the open countryside of the Penrith Beacon and only 20 mins walk (5 mins drive) from town. The estate is quiet, with good parking on the properties and on the streets. Very little traffic noise, currently no anti-social behaviour and reliable local services. There will be a shop on the estate in due course, as well as a town bus route, but these are not yet in place as the final houses are still being built.
Please review your development:
The estate is well-designed, with quiet streets and few through-roads. Most houses are on side roads. There is a variety of good, standard Charles Church designs with 4 and 5 bedrooms. Plenty of parking. At the moment the estate is not quite finished, and so the builders still take responsibility for every aspect of maintenance of common parts – the management company has not yet been set up. Standards are high, however, and we have no complaints whatsoever. Properties are well-spaced, with no crowding, plenty of light and good views over the beautiful local countryside. Highly recommended.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
We were prepared for a good number of snagging problems with a new property (our first new-build purchase), but need not have worried.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Yes, all issues (all very minor) have been sorted within a very short timescale.
