Jones Homes has acquired a 13-acre site off Milnthorpe Road near Kendal with planning permission to build 110 houses as its first project in South Lakeland.
The development, named Stonecross Meadows, will be split between three, four, and five bed homes, with 38 of these earmarked as affordable, including 18 available for discounted sale.
There will also be a number of split-level properties, designed specifically by Jones for the development. The site between the A6 and the A591 is bordered by Lumley Road and will be accessed via Milnthorpe Road.
Construction is due to begin in April and will take around four years. The first homes will be released for sale in the summer ahead of being ready for occupation in spring 2019.
Jones Homes managing director Gary Hardy said: “Kendal is a thriving market town and a highly desirable place to live and work, or own a second home.
“Our Stonecross Meadows development promises to offer an array of highly specified new homes in an attractive semi-rural setting. We’ve already received a great deal of interest in the scheme and anticipate properties being in high demand once they are officially released for sale.”
