A troop of 23 new homes have come onto the market near Preston.

The properties are based in Warton and were converted from former military married quarters once used by soldiers with the Duke of Lancaster regiment.

Property group Annington has given the homes at Butlers Meadow, off Harbour Lane, a revamp and put them on the open market after they were handed back to the firm by the Ministry of Defence.

Nicola Lindsay, branch manager at selling agent Reeds Rains, said: “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 new homes are just a 10 minute walk from the two schools in the village.
