New homes to view this Spring bank holiday at Thornedge, Cumwhinton

The long bank holiday weekend is an ideal time to view the superb new homes at the Magnus Homes development at Thornedge, Cumwhinton. Open events are held every Saturday and Sunday at Thornedge and will be specially extended over the Spring bank holiday with the development being open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11am to 3pm.

The range of high-specification properties includes 2-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 3-bedroom detached bungalows (one with its own private orchard!) and 4-bedroom detached dormer-style houses. All feature oak-finish doors, quality kitchen units and appliances, extensive tiling to bathrooms and luxurious bathroom fittings including LED mirrors with demisters. The dormer-style homes feature oak designer staircases with a choice of glass infill panels or oak spindles.

Thornedge is an attractive development set in the heart of the lovely village of Cumwhinton. The homes here are well spaced out, unlike many cramped modern estates, and it is an ideal location for those with aspirations to enjoy rural life. Many of the homes are now occupied and a friendly community is already growing.

We are delighted to announce that we have been granted planning permission to build a further four bungalows on our development at Thornedge Gardens, Cumwhinton. Magnus Homes director Frank Lowe said ‘We are so pleased that our proposals have been approved because this type of property is very popular with buyers and there has been a lot of interest, not only in the eight bungalows and dormer-style homes already under construction but also in these newly-announced properties. In fact, one of the four additional bungalows, a three-bedroom detached, has already been sold off-plan and we are expecting a surge in inquiries about the others’.

Unusually, one of the new bungalows, also a three-bedroom detached, will be of particular interest because it features its own private orchard which is a rare opportunity for buyers although very much in keeping with this idyllic rural setting.

Frank Lowe said, ‘I’m also pleased to say that one of the two-bedroom semi-detached bungalow at Thornedge Gardens is available as part of the Low Cost Housing Scheme. Anybody interested in this should apply to Carlisle City Council’.
