September 25, 2020 Northstone has launched ‘The Huddle’ and two show homes at its first development, Silkash, in Westhoughton, Bolton. House types, Ten50, a three-bedroom home and Eleven65, a four-bedroom home, are now available to view, by appointment only, at the site located on Bolton Road. The new highly energy-efficient homes include features that could help residents to reduce energy use by up to 15%. Features such as systems to recycle heat from warm wastewater, using less gas to heat the home, and smart-household technology to allow residents to automate heating and electricity, will make homes cheaper to run. Estimated annual running costs for gas and electricity are between £150 and £300, dependent on house type and use. In addition, Northstone’s homes already go beyond the current building regulation requirements for energy performance by making homes more airtight with thicker walls, bigger cavities for insulation and carefully positioned windows. Welcoming people into The Huddle and to discuss Northstone’s ‘Building a more neighbourly world’ ethos, are sales team, Senior Sales Manager, Anita Jolley and Sales Advisor, Graeme Woods. Graeme, has over 20 years’ sales experience, joins the teams from Jones Lang Lasalle where he was a Sales Consultant based at MediaCityUK. Northstone’s Senior Sales Manager, Anita Jolley, said: “It has been fantastic to see the progress on site since we started in March 2020, and we’re thrilled to have our ‘Huddle’ completed and ready to invite potential customers to view our homes.” With 25 years’ sales experience, Anita joined Northstone from her position as Head of Sales from Capital & Centric. Having previously worked as New Homes Sales Manager at King Sturge, Anita has a proven track record in new build developments across the North West. Anita adds: “Our homes appeal to families, young couples and downsizers, offering carefully designed houses with a Scandinavian influence to help meet the needs of today’s families and generations to come.” When complete towards the end of 2023, Silkash will provide 150 new family homes to meet local housing demand with a mix of two, three and four bedrooms, suitable for first-time buyers (with Help to Buy), families and downsizers. The development will also create 160 jobs and apprenticeship opportunities to support skills and the local economy. Homes at Silkash start from £165,000.
