Grand old success for Dukes Manor

Location and superior product are the key reasons that Dukes Manor in Walkden is proving to be incredibly popular with some homes selling in as little as 30 minutes.

Homes at the Greater Manchester development have officially been on sale since June but even at the pre-launch event in April, six ‘Early Bird’ reservations were secured, which means people have first refusal on the homes when they are eventually released for sale.

With seven out of the nine homes currently released now sold, and the remaining two not expected to be around for long, Redrow is looking into releasing more Early Bird plots soon to keep up with demand.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow (Lancashire) said: “We’ve had phenomenal levels of interest for Dukes Manor so far. We had 1,000 people on the database before the homes even went on sale. Buyers are loving the fact that the development borders countryside and there are great links into Manchester and Salford.

“We’ve had a lot of enquiries from people in the Manchester area but also from further afield, including the Midlands and from the South, as people have recognised that the cost of living is favourable and they can see the benefits of being within easy reach of a vibrant city. Walkden train station is within a 10 minute walk and residents will also benefit from improved bus links. Additionally, visitors have also been very impressed with the high specification and the quality product.

“Such is the demand that we had one home sell within 30 minutes of it going onto the market!”

The bus journey into Manchester from Walkden will be improved by the Leigh Guided Busway. Expected to be up and running by the end of the year, this will provide a dedicated bus route along the East Lancs Road through nearby Worsley into the city centre and beyond, creating more options for commuters.

Dukes Manor will eventually feature 117 family homes from Redrow’s Heritage Collection, comprising traditional semi-detached three-bedroom homes to executive detached four-bedroom homes with integral double garages.

Although the homes have been classically designed on the outside, inside they boast convivial open plan living space and a whole host of family friendly features. With an impressively high specification as standard, kitchens are well equipped and bathrooms feature top brands and contemporary styling.
