Climb the property ladder in Rochdale with Redrow

Trade in your old home towards the cost of a new one and moving day could be closer than you think.

Birch Grange in Birch Road, Rochdale, features a standout choice of traditional looking four-bedroom homes with an Arts & Crafts influence that are ideal for those who want to move up the property ladder.

With some of the homes now ready to move into and the offer of part exchange from Redrow, customers can enjoy a quick and easy move from old to new.

Julie Harper, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “We know that people want to live in our homes, but some may think that they can’t commit to buying somewhere new until they’ve sold the property they want to move from. Statistics from suggest that it could take more than seven months to sell a home in Rochdale, but the good news is that our customers don’t have to wait to sell before they can buy – they could use part exchange to speed up the process.”

To take advantage of part exchange customers must be buying something that’s worth at least 35% more than their current home. If the price differential is suitable Redrow will work with them to make their move quick, simple and pain-free. They’ll even take care of the estate agent’s fees.

Prices at Birch Grange start from £214,995 for a four-bedroom Stratford style property.

Some of the homes, including Stratford, Canterbury and Balmoral designs are almost ready to be called home.

On the market at £335,995, the Balmoral is a substantial family home that’s both practical and stylish.

The spacious lounge spans from the front to the rear of the property and is an inviting place to sit back and relax in. It enjoys lots of natural light thanks to windows at either end of the room. With the double doors closed it offers a private ‘sanctuary’ from the rest of the house. Meanwhile the open plan kitchen and dining room is a natural ‘hub’ where the family can come together to cook, eat and chat.

Like all new homes the Balmoral boasts a well equipped kitchen with integrated top brand name appliances including oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer, plus tall cabinets and extra wide drawers that offer plenty of storage.

The property also features a utility room to keep the washer and dryer out of the kitchen and provide extra storage.

“The Balmoral is a fantastic family home that’s designed with modern living in mind. It benefits from a dedicated study, which if you don’t need somewhere quiet to work, could be used as a playroom or family room,” Julie added.

“Journey upstairs and two of the four bedrooms have en-suites, which should minimise the morning rush for the family bathroom.”

The new homes are being built on the site of the former Birch Hill Hospital. With a good choice of local schools, the development is the ideal place for those with families; while road and rail links to Manchester mean it’s also well suited as a base for commuters.

To discover how Redrow could help you climb the property ladder, visit the sales office and show home, open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm.
