LEVEL up your living arrangements with a move to an energy efficient home as part of a gated new community in Swinton.

Work on the intimate Birchfield Court development on Worsley Road is progressing well.

The site was previously known as Birchfield House, a ‘micro-estate’ built in the second half of the 19th century. More recently, it was home to Swinton Hall Nursing Home, which closed in 2018.

It’s now being transformed to provide new homes – 18 new build properties, plus the original gatehouses, which have been converted into two-bedroom homes. Properties now on sale are almost ready to move into.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “There’s a demand for housing across the Greater Manchester commuter belt and schemes like Birchfield Court are helping address that need. In designing our new homes in Swinton we’ve considered the lifestyles of those who want to live here. The result is that all the new build homes here are set out over three floors.

“Building up instead of out, offers a sustainable solution to modern living by maximising the potential of the land. Our new homes are already highly energy efficient, but our three-storey homes take this to a new level. The combination of shared walls in townhouses and the fact that heat rises could lower energy bills further. There’s no compromise on space – they’re designed with how people really live in mind, plus they’re competitively priced compared with two-storey homes of a similar size. Birchfield Court demonstrates that an aspirational life as part of a gated community could be easier to afford than anticipated.”

Despite the intimate nature of Birchfield Court, there are four styles of three-storey homes being built at the development.

Half of Elan’s new build homes in Swinton are the four-bedroom Ashley Max, with a show home in this style available to view.

Priced from £389,995, it offers 1,349 sq ft of carefully considered living space, set out over three floors.

At ground level, to make the most of the space, it’s almost entirely open plan with a combined kitchen, dining room and lounge. The kitchen is at the front, with the lounge opening out onto the rear garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

The main bedroom, with en-suite, plus the second bedroom and family bathroom are on the first floor.

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

Selected properties at Birchfield Court include flooring throughout and turfed rear garden, with the show home available with light fittings, curtains and blinds too.

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.

The show home at 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.
