NATIONAL housebuilder Lovell Homes has launched its latest North West development called Roman Heights. The picturesque Lake District community was revealed in a brand-new way, giving Cumbrian house hunters the chance to grill the experts in a live online launch event.

The exclusive event, which is now available to view on demand here, gave potential purchasers the opportunity to ask questions in a live Q&A with Chartwells Mortgage Services and Butterworth Solicitors, while viewing the development for the first time from the comfort and safety of their armchair.

Anne-Marie O’Doherty, regional sales director at Lovell Homes North West, said: “It’s clear that the stamp duty holiday, required deposit sizes, the Help to Buy Scheme and the best time to buy, are the burning questions that matter most to the people of Cumbria. We’re pleased that we managed to answer all these queries as well as celebrating our latest development, Roman Heights.

“We usually love opening up our doors and marking a brand-new launch – however, given the current restrictions it’s just not been possible. A virtual launch has actually given viewers a unique perspective; from a bird’s eye view of the site using drone footage to hearing from those on site who are building the viewer’s potential home.”

Located on the edge of the Lake District, the development brings a compelling choice of fresh new homes, each with spacious rooms, luxury finishes, and modern layouts. The Hartley, a three-bed semi-detached home, is already ready to move into and available under the current Help to Buy scheme. A selection of four- and five-bedrooms homes are also available to reserve as well as nine three-beds that are being offered through the low-cost housing scheme with Allerdale Borough Council.

Anne-Marie added: “We’ve really thought about the housing we’re offering on this site and created homes with a contemporary feel, that are ideal for family living. As a result, we’re giving lots of choice by offering a larger variety of house types and introducing some brand-new styles that have been specifically chosen for the development following customer feedback.

“Style, quality and value is really important, so we’ve ensured that our four and five bed homes really complement modern life with a variety of options such as a beautiful kitchen island, bi-fold doors, double ovens, ceramic flooring and much more.”

Site visits and show home tours must be booked in advance with visitors adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Sitting on the edge of Cockermouth, interest in Roman Heights is anticipated to be strong due to its location near to a wealth of public amenities including shops, leisure facilities, and excellent schools. Prices for the homes start from 260,000 for the Hartley house type and £336,000 for 4 Bed homes.
