FIVE-bedroom homes for sale in Worsley are few and far between but expand your search to Swinton and you could find your money goes further and be part of an intimate gated community.

Elan Homes has made good progress with its transformation of a 19th century “micro estate” on Worsley Road. Now known as Birchfield Court, the final few homes are now on sale.

The largest of these is the five-bedroom Dunham, offering a well-planned, energy efficient solution to modern living and a competitively priced alternative to a similar sized property in nearby Worsley.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “We understand that location is a priority when choosing where to live, but by expanding your search you’ll increase your options. There are very few five-bedroom homes for sale in Worsley and the current asking price for them is more than £900,000. Expand your search just a few miles to Swinton and you could save up to 45% on the asking price. That headline figure doesn’t reflect the potential savings that a move to an easy to maintain, energy efficient new home offers. Research by the HBF suggests those living in a new house could save 63% on their energy bills.

“Plus, if that wasn’t enough, we’re offering a £15,000 deposit boost on the five-bedroom Dunham at Birchfield Court. We’ve already sold three-quarters of homes here, with just five properties available to buy. Feedback is that people love the idea of living in an intimate gated community, which would command a much higher premium if it was in nearby Worsley.”

The five-bedroom Dunham at Birchfield Court is available from £499,995 and includes an upgraded kitchen, flooring throughout and light fittings.

Set out over three floors, it offers 1,461 sq ft of living space.

The kitchen is at the front of the property, with a combined lounge and dining room at the rear, with French doors opening out to the garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, one with en-suite, plus the family bathroom.

Two further bedrooms and a shower room are on the top floor.

The Dunham is almost build complete and will soon be available to view.

“The Dunham offers three floors of flexible space that can be adapted as your needs change,” Marie added.

“What may start off as a playroom for young children could in later years become a home gym or hobby room. Or if you work from home, you could use one of the bedrooms as a study.”

The other homes available at Birchfield Court include the two-bedroom Coach House, converted from the gatehouse and priced from £249,995, and a choice of four-bedroom homes, priced from £394,995.

The homes at Birchfield Court offer an ideal base for commuters as they are being built less than a mile from Swinton station, only five miles from Manchester city centre and close to the East Lancashire Road (A580) which also provides quick access to the motorway network to both Manchester and Liverpool.

Birchfield Court is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For the latest availability and pricing see https://www.elan-homes.co.uk/developments/birchfield-court.
