Get out the city but still enjoy luxary apartments living
Tired of city life but still need regular access? The Courtyard at Woodford Garden Village, surrounded by green, open space, may tick all the boxes.
If city centre living has become tiresome but apartment-living appeals more than buying a house, Redrow’s luxury apartments may be the solution.
Located in the village of Woodford, just five miles from Stockport and 13 miles from Manchester city centre (trains from nearby Poynton Station reach Manchester Piccadilly in around 26 minutes), The Courtyard offers a lifestyle that would be envied by many.
Amanda Hollins, area sales manager for our North West division says: “City centre living appeals to many but, when the time comes to wanting to make the leap from renting to buying, this is where it can become tricky and buyers may find themselves priced out of the city centre market.
“Also, since experiencing lockdowns due to the Covid-19 pandemic, access to green spaces and the great outdoors has become more important to many; while working from home more frequently means being close to a city centre office base isn’t essential.
“However, not everyone who moves out of the city centre is looking for a three or four-bedroom house. Some people prefer the ease that comes with apartment living such as reduced upkeep, maximum use of all space available and everything on one level.”
All 28 apartments at The Courtyard come with indulgent features such as underfloor heating, bi-fold patio doors onto a spacious balcony and other benefits such as a gated entrance and a private garage for each property.
Currently there are 13 two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments available with prices from £364,995.
An added bonus at The Courtyard is that home owners may be able to have a pet* - something which is often prohibited in city or town centre apartment blocks.
“Owning a dog or cat often comes hand in hand with a more rural lifestyle and it’s great that Woodford Garden Village offers that opportunity,” Amanda adds.
The Courtyard is part of the wider Woodford Garden Village that is transforming the old Woodford Aerodrome into a new residential community of circa 950 homes.
It will have its own amenities such as a pub by brewer and hospitality group JW Lees, primary school, shops and extra care housing; plus, a trademark feature of all our garden villages, it puts an emphasis on strong placemaking with good quality green space for everyone to enjoy.
And for those worried about missing out on some aspects of city centre living, nearby places such as Wilmslow, Prestbury and Alderley Edge are well known for their designer shops and café-bar culture, and Handforth, Bramhall and Poynton all offer a good selection of shops and services.
There are plans for a show apartment to be unveiled in 2021; visitors now can take a full virtual tour of the properties through the use of state of the art interactive visual technology. And, by reserving early off-plan they’ll have more opportunity to personalise their new apartment through a range of specification choices and optional upgrades.
