Last updated at 11:38, Friday, 24 August 2012
Workington's newest town centre penthouses have gone on the market for £175,000.
It has taken 18 months to create the former Cumbria Park complex on Corporation Road, which features 10 two-bedroom apartments, six two-bedroom duplexes and two penthouses.
Six two-bedroom duplexes are for sale from £85,000 upwards.
Ten two-bedroom apartments are available for between £110,000 to £120,000.
The two two-bedroom penthouses have a terrace on either side, providing views across the town.
Eleven homes are ready to sell, and the remaining seven flats are due to be finished soon.
George Turner, of Barturn Developments, said that he had interest in two or three of the flats from families, who were waiting for their current properties to be sold.
He said: “We have had quite a lot of interest and we had about nine families looking round at an open day on Saturday and others popping in through the week.”
Mr Turner, who runs the company with son Jason, used local labour to create the building, Cumbria House.
It has a lift to all floors, a security intercom system and high-level insulation.
The ballroom had been run by John and Jeanne Harrison as a popular venue for dinner dances and other functions. It was later run by Corsican-born Rene Ravel and his wife Susan, who put the building up for sale in 2004. It was demolished in 2010.

It's worth paying a premium, so you don't have to live alongside the typical narrow minded assa marras, "supp'n o-day eh" in their right to buys.
