The wait is nearly over for the launch of Brigsteer Rise, coming to Kendal in Summer. Register your details to be kept up to date on our progress and find out more about the beautiful homes we’re bringing to the area.

New homes in Kendal.

Brigsteer Rise features a collection of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes designed for modern living and built to last, offering more than your average new build.

Located on the quiet outskirts of Kendal whilst being only a short walk to the town centre, our homes at Brigsteer Rise boast exceptional exteriors which incorporate brick, stone and render, making the street scenes unique and your house different from your neighbours’.

Our homes feature open plan living spaces and multi-functional rooms designed with flexibility in mind, so you can use the space in a way that suits your lifestyle. Plus, bi-fold doors, designer kitchens, feature oak staircases, high ceilings and waterfall showers. These are just a few of the things included in our specification as standard.

We’re building some of our most beautiful house types at Brigsteer Rise, including the Milford, Hartford, Wexford and Linford. Whilst the homes at Brigsteer Rise will be slightly different to our usual house type range and will therefore have different names, you can still browse our house types page to find a home with a layout that works for you.

What’s around Brigsteer Rise?

Heritage and adventure await in this charming market town on the southeast border of the Lake District National Park. A short distance from Windermere and the coast, there is something for everyone in the surrounds of Kendal.

The town itself has cobbled streets and is nestled amongst magnificent fells, offering unique shopping, eating and drinking opportunities at every turn. From high street favourites, such as Marks and Spencer and Next, to independent boutiques and jewellers, shopping in Kendal is a special experience. There are restaurants and bars to suit every palate, from local bakers and brewers such as Brew Brothers, to well-known chain eateries like Pizza Express. For a slice of history, many local vendors sell the famous Kendal Mint Cake – the delicious ‘emergency’ ration for hill walkers and mountaineers alike.

An array of supermarkets are available too, with an Asda superstore, Booths and Sainsbury’s located just around the corner.

Excellent transport links can be easily accessed, with the M6 close (but not too close) to our development in Kendal, connecting you to the north and south of the country. Oxenholme Lake District rail station provides links to other major cities including London, Manchester and Glasgow and Newcastle International Airport is less than two hours by car, for those wanting to travel further afield.

There are a wide range of primary and secondary schools rated “good” by Ofsted including Old Sutton C of E Primary School and Queen Elizabeth School, making Kendal the perfect place to raise a family.
