Homes for professionals looking for life away from the city

Making an investment with a friend could be the key to helping young professionals in Cheshire find a foothold on the property ladder in 2021, according to Anwyl Homes.

The home builder has updated its property designs at The Fairways in Handforth to provide a new house type – The Burton – that is ideal for friends sharing with two similar sized bedrooms, each with its own en suite.

Thomas Bradley, senior sales manager for Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said:

“It’s a great time to invest in property. The market is buoyant and property prices in the SK9 area have been showing steady increases. Over the last year sold prices in Handforth were up 4% and have grown by 20% since 2017*. Pooling your resources and buying with a friend is a great way to take a first step onto the property ladder. Or, for those who are able to buy on their own, these properties make a great investment choice, with the option to rent out the large second en-suite bedroom to help cover costs.”

The Burton, a two-bedroom home, is laid out over two floors and, at 755 sq ft, its floor space is more akin to that of a three-bedroom house.

Thomas added:

“In The Burton we’ve effectively re-designed the classic three-bedroom semi layout to create a two-bedroom home and used the space that would normally be given to a third single bedroom to create two more generously sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Downstairs, there’s a light and airy open-plan kitchen and dining room with patio doors out to the garden and a spacious lounge as well as a downstairs cloakroom.

The homes at The Fairways have already been proving popular with commuters who work in Manchester or the surrounding areas, but want to move out of the city to live in the sought after SK9 postcode. The location allows them to take advantage of a new way of life with green spaces, independent shops, restaurants and other amenities nearby.

The Fairways features a range of homes from one to five-bedrooms, with a choice of apartments, semi-detached and detached homes, on 21 acres of former greenbelt land off Meriton Road. In addition to The Burton, it includes other brand new house designs, developed by Anwyl to better meet the lifestyle demands of its discerning buyers, as well as an uplifted specification.

Prices currently start at £299,995 for ‘The Burton’ home.
