The mayor of Peterborough, councillor David Sanders, and city MP Stewart Jackson MP have officially opened a ‘stunning’ Larkfleet show home in the village of Thorney near Peterborough.
Larkfleet Homes has already sold almost three-quarters of the 80 homes on the new Thorney Meadows estate on Woburn Avenue.
The show home gives prospective new buyers a great opportunity to visualise a ‘real life’ version of their new home and includes features such as family rooms, open plan living areas, luxury dining together, bathrooms and spacious bedrooms.
Karl Hick, Larkfleet CEO, said at the opening: “The house building industry has been through some difficult years recently. However, I am pleased to say that Larkfleet weathered the storms of the recession and we are now rapidly expanding our activities.
“We remain committed to working with local authorities and local communities in our ‘core areas’ of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.
“We continue to deliver high quality homes that meet the urgent need for new housing that will enable people to ‘get a foot on the property ladder’.
“Larkfleet is not confining its activities to the local area. We now have active operations in Scotland, in the South West of England, in Norfolk and across the Midlands.
“In some of these places we have already built and sold homes, in others we are building now, and in the rest we have started planning consultations with councils and potential neighbours.
“But our expansion further afield does not in any way diminish our pride and pleasure in building for local communities closer to home.”
Larkfleet Homes joint managing director Helen Hick added: “Viewing the new showhome will enable prospective buyers to see and feel the quality built into each and every Larkfleet home.
“It really ‘brings to life’ how beautiful a Larfkleet home can look with the right furniture and added extras.” Thorney is located just two miles east of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, on the edge of the unique and unspoilt Fen landscape.
Residents can enjoy the rural lifestyle and the superb arts, entertainment and shopping facilities of Peterborough.
Stewart Jackson MP said: “I am ‘pro house building’ and believe younger people should be able to buy homes which Larkfleet Homes is encouraging with its developments.”
Members of the Larkfleet team were joined by Peterborough city councillors and Thorney parish councillors alongside local business leaders.
The show home is now open seven days a week between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
