Rochdale showhome gets a new look in time for Christmas

Homebuyers can enjoy an insight into their Christmas future with a visit to Birch Grange in Rochdale, where the showhome has been given a festive makeover.

Already a cracker, the four-bedroom detached Oxford showhome has been spruced up to inspire buyers this yuletide.

It will be unwrapped on Thursday (November 14) when Redrow will host a late night opening until 7pm with mulled wine and mince pies.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “All year round we have people trying to replicate the looks our interior designers have created in our showhomes and so with the festive season fast approaching we’re giving them an insight into what the best dressed homes are wearing this yuletide. We’ve given our showhome at Birch Grange a seasonal makeover with tasteful touches of tinsel, a classically styled tree and elegant table decorations.

“Visitors will be able to picture themselves celebrating a good old fashioned family Christmas in the style and comfort of a brand new home.”

Featuring three and four-bedroom designs from the sought-after Heritage Collection, homes at Birch Grange are a gift that keeps on giving as they’re easy to manage and economical to run.

Homeowners will be able to enjoy warmer winters without worrying about the cost of cranking up the heating thanks to a range of energy efficient measures.

Open plan layouts put well equipped kitchens at the heart of the homes. Boasting integrated appliances, they’re perfect for rustling up a festive family feast.

Properties that are being built now will be ready to move into in early 2014.

Prices start from £174,995 for a four-bedroom Kenilworth style home, with spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. Equity loans under the Help to Buy initiative are available to reduce the initial cost by up to 20%. It means the Kenilworth could be snapped up for an initial outlay of £139,996, including a 5% deposit of £8,750.

Located in Birch Road, the properties enjoy views over neighbouring fields and the Pennines beyond. Nearby, Hollingworth Lake Activity Centre offers a range of water sports, there’s also the chance to fish on the lake or at Watergrove Reservoir.

The area is well served by schools, making it ideal for families.

Those who work in Manchester can be in the city in around 30 minutes via train from Smithy Bridge station; while the extension of the Metrolink will improve journey times. The M62 is also within easy reach, connecting drivers to the North West motorway network including the M60 Manchester Ring Road.

Join Redrow for mince pies and mulled wine at Birch Grange from 11.30am to 7pm on Thursday (November 14).
