Sitting to the south west of Preston below the river Ribble, Penwortham is one of the areas Dewhurst Homes has intimate knowledge of.
It’s a desirable location in its own right and has property for sale for every budget – 1 bedroom flats can be purchased for under £100,000 whilst executive homes can exceed £850,000. It’s a town that has developed too in a similar trajectory to Preston with its population growth.
Lower Penwortham is characterised by Victorian property, evident in the terraced homes along Leyland Road. Higher Penwortham is slightly more contemporary, dating from the 1920s to post war homes.
Newer developments have contributed to the population growth to almost 24,000 residents around Bee Lane, Broad Oak Farm and Kingsfold Drive, to name but three.
Great for families
If you’re looking for a place to settle with children, Penwortham is excellent with a choice of many primary schools and two high schools, one of which is Catholic, All Hallows on Crabtree Avenue.
