KENDAL’S newest housing development has attracted more than 500 inquiries before a brick has even been laid.

Oakmere Homes is developing 23 riverside houses on Natland Road. They will be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties.

Chris Middlebrook, director of Oakmere Homes, has been blown away by the level of interest. He said: “The new development has a great location alongside a picturesque stretch of the River Kent and is just a short walk from the town centre so we expected a lot of interest.

“There has been a lot of debate about new homes in Kendal, but the huge level of inquiries demonstrates the demand for new homes in the town.”

Designs include three bedroom detached and semi-detached family homes and innovative one and two bedroom properties including an apartment-style one bed home.

Prices for the one bedroom properties start at £124,950 with three bedroom designs from £194,950. More information via
