SURROUNDED by parkland and primed for a community way of life, Elan’s Millfields development in Middleton is the perfect place for families to call home.
But the popular property collection is also a great place to live for young professionals who don’t want to be stuck in the city 24/7, and who want a better balance between work and home life.
The Boothroyden Road development has a thriving community and lots to offer right on its doorstep, from shops, bars and restaurants to the extensive grounds of Heaton Park and Alkrington Woods or the new Middleton Arena sports and leisure centre.
Yet it’s only a 6.5-mile commute into Manchester city centre, so the office is only ever just minutes away, along with the nightlife, retail and cultural benefits of this exciting northern capital.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, says: “If lockdown has taught us one thing, it’s the importance of our homes and where they are. Home comforts and conveniences are as much desired as ever but so too is having green space around to walk in and enjoy, and to relax and help maintain a feeling of wellbeing.
“Millfields has all of that, as well as a proximity to the city centre amenities, easily accessible, either by rail or by road, courtesy of the M60 and M62.”
Marie adds: “Not only that, Millfields has a variety of house styles, each with their own private gardens, which are often far more appealing than the more restricted lifestyles offered by city centre apartment blocks. Just think about those summer evenings sitting outside, or being able to have friends around to dine al-fresco.
“Plus, when it comes to cost, a two-bedroom semi-detached property like the Beeston can work out far more reasonably than a city centre apartment. In fact it could cost around half of what you might need to spend on a new two-bedroom city centre apartment* - and for that you get a lot of living and space for your money. Without neighbours above and below.”
Priced from £204,995, the Beeston two-bedroom home is simplicity itself, and as easy to manage as it is to afford. Smart design on the ground floor gives the buyer everything they need; there’s a large lounge and generous kitchen and dining area, as well as a handy cloakroom.
Upstairs are two good-sized bedrooms, providing space for sharing to cut costs, an office in which to work from home, a nursery, a gym or whatever else a homeowner needs to live life their way, and a bathroom.
The Beeston is available with Help to Buy, the Government-backed scheme which offers first time buyers the chance to reserve a new build home with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage.
Selected larger homes at Millfields are available with part-exchange which means no agent’s fees to pay and no getting held back by complicated chains with Elan effectively acting as a cash buyer.
