Typical Elan homes, similar to the final few homes at Canalside in Middlewich.

MIDDLEWICH buyers hoping to secure a new home at Canalside could soon find they’ve missed the boat.

As the development name suggests, the homes are being built close to the Trent and Mersey Canal with opportunities for residents to enjoy leisurely strolls along the towpath.

The homes also benefit from easy access to the town centre and commuter links to Manchester and Liverpool, both of which can be reached in less than an hour by car.

It’s also a location that’s proving popular and now, with only seven homes available, Elan Homes is encouraging potential purchasers to act fast to avoid disappointment.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Middlewich was recently named as a hotspot for commercial property, thanks in part to its transport links, but it has plenty to offer homebuyers too. Situated on the edge of the town, the new homes we are building at Canalside are perfectly placed for those who work in the town or for commuting to other areas too.

“Plans for the new Middlewich eastern by pass are set to improve commutability and could lead to house price rises.  Figures from Rightmove suggest that house prices in Middlewich have increased by 5% since 2017, while experts from Savills suggesting improved infrastructure can add a premium of 22%.”

The final phase of homes at Canalside includes a choice of four-bedroom detached designs, with prices from £314,995.

Built under the supervision of an award-winning site manager, the homes feature a high specification as standard.

On selected properties, Elan is offering to include carpets and vinyl flooring, plus turf to the rear garden. As an added incentive, the homebuilder is also offering to cover the cost of stamp duty and contribute £1,000 towards legal fees. Alternatively, those with a house to sell may be able to use part exchange to climb the property ladder.
