First-time buyers, families and young professionals are gearing up to get a taste of Carpino Place's townhouses on Oldfield Road in Salford, as the properties are launched onto the market.

The official sales opening will be marked by a celebratory launch event on Friday 31 March and Saturday 1 April near the development. Carpino Place's 22 three- and four-bedroom townhouses will be available to buy off-plan and appointments at the event will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

The multi-million-pound scheme, which will comprise 22 three-storey townhouses, follows on from the success of Timekeepers Square - a Georgian-style development located behind Chapel Street, which sold out in just seven months - as well as the 97-home Vimto Gardens project.

Hollie Reynolds, senior residential sales and marketing manager for the North at ECf, said: "Building on our hugely successful previous projects, Vimto Gardens and Timekeepers Square, we're fully expecting that a large proportion of the new homes will be sold during our launch event. We're looking forward to welcoming house hunters and revealing all that Carpino Place has to offer as a premium, contemporary development."

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.

An internal courtyard at the development will house parking spaces for each of the 22 homes, with other notable features including private outdoor spaces for all homes including a mix of rear gardens, rooftop terraces and patio areas. The project will also incorporate the restoration of the historic cobbled Wroe Street and South William Street.

The scheme, which is being delivered by ECf in conjunction with Salford City Council and forms part of the Salford Central regeneration scheme, has been designed to complement the surrounding area, enhancing the existing streetscape and strengthening the urban setting of Oldfield Road.

When the work is finished, Salford Central will create around 11,000 new jobs, 220,000 sq m of commercial space, 849 new homes and 390 hotel rooms.

Hollie added: "Over the last few years, we've been instrumental in transforming Salford into a thriving urban community and Carpino Place represents a significant part of the puzzle. We can't wait to see attendees at our event move into their brand new homes in the not-too-distant future."
