Typical Elan homes, similar to those being built at Millfields, Middleton

SHOW homes at a new housing development in Middleton will soon be available to view by appointment only.

Elan Homes is transforming a former brownfield site in the Greater Manchester town to provide 67 new homes across 3.9 acres of a 4.38 acre site.


Known as Millfields, the development on Boothroyden Road will offer a choice of two, three and four-bedroom semi-detached and detached designs.


They will be showcased by two show homes due to open in early September. The properties will be available to view by appointment only, with social distancing measures in place.


Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Plans for this site were first mooted back in 2015 but it wasn’t until last summer that we acquired the site. There’s a pent up demand for new homes in Middleton and the wider Greater Manchester area and we’ve received a steady stream of enquiries from potential purchasers. We’re now looking forward to inviting those who’ve registered their interest to be the first to see inside the show homes – a three-bedroom semi-detached Howden and a four-bedroom Brandon. Both properties will be professionally styled and fully furnished, enabling visitors to imagine themselves living here.”


Prices for the properties will be announced when the development is launched.


New build homes are generally more energy efficient than older properties, but Elan’s homes at Millfields will shower heat recovery units and triple glazed windows.


As part of Elan’s commitment to the environment, mature Manchester Poplar trees along the boundary of the River Irk are being retained, with homes at the southern end of the site look out towards the trees and river.  


Elan will also contribute £81,076 towards the improvements of recreational open space in Alkrington Woods and Rhodes Lodges Site of Biological Importance.
