All homes sold at Salford’s Carpino Place

All 22 homes at Carpino Place, English Cities Fund (ECf)’s new development of townhouses in the Chapel Street area of Salford, have been bought off-plan just seven months after its launch.

The scheme, delivered by ECf - a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General Property and the Homes and Communities Agency - in conjunction with Salford City Council, has experienced strong demand since sales were launched in April, with the final home being taken off the market this month.

Carpino Place comprises 22 three and four-bedroom homes, featuring a mixture of private rear gardens, rooftop terraces and patio areas. The development also features an internal courtyard, which will house parking spaces for each of the properties.

The development has been designed to complement the surrounding area, enhancing the existing streetscape and strengthening the urban setting of Oldfield Road. The project also incorporates the restoration of the historic cobbled Wroe Street and South William Street. The first residents will move in before Christmas, with the entire scheme due for completion in early 2018.

Hollie Reynolds, senior residential sales and marketing manager for the North at ECf, said: “We’re so happy that all the homes have been snapped up. The fact they’ve all been bought in just seven months and before the scheme has completed is a testament to the quality of the homes and the lifestyle they offer – three and four-bedroom family homes with outdoor spaces and local amenities are hard to come by so close to the city centres of Salford and Manchester.

“Some buyers have benefitted from the Help to Buy scheme, meaning more people in the area have been able to jump onto the property ladder and can begin to put down roots and build memories in Salford. We can’t wait to welcome the new residents to their homes.”

Carpino Place is named after Archbishop Francesco Carpino who, in 1966 along with the then mayor of Salford, laid the foundation stone of The Stella Maris Seaman’s Mission, which previously occupied the site.

The sell-out of Carpino Place follows the success of Timekeepers Square, a Georgian-style development of 36 townhouses which also sold out in seven months during 2016, and Vimto Gardens – a mixture of 97 apartments and townhouses which all sold out within 12 months of its launch in 2014.
