Next phase of new homes at former aerodrome site set for take off
A new phase of homes has launched at our Woodford Garden Village, former site of the historic Woodford Aerodrome.
The 30 larger properties – inclusive of three-bedroom ‘Lifestyle’, four and five-bedroom homes – are set to be completed as part of Shackleton Fields on the already-thriving development, with prices for the prestigious properties currently starting from £1,020,995.
There will be seven styles in this latest phase which continues to reflect the site’s history and importance to the area and British aviation; it’s been named after the Shackleton long-range maritime patrol aircraft developed by Avro in the late 1940s.
So-titled in tribute to polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, it was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber - itself a development of the famous wartime Avro Lancaster bomber, more than 4,000 of which were built at Woodford during WWII – and was created as part of Britain’s response to the rapid expansion of the Soviet navy.
Among the latest detached homes from our celebrated Heritage Collection, which combines traditional, craftsmanship exteriors with chic, contemporary open plans interiors, is the five-bedroom Sandringham Premium from £1,020,995.
The five-bedroom executive home is undeniably impressive, having an upgraded specification that includes underfloor heating, bi-fold doors to the kitchen, a New England-style kitchen from Symphony Kitchens, a choice of tiled Porcelanosa or Amtico flooring to the kitchen, dining, bathroom and main en-suite. This is on top of the already fantastic specification that comes as standard in our Heritage Collection homes.
The Sandringham Premium has a spacious kitchen, family and dining area, together with a separate utility room. There is also a lounge, formal dining room and study to the frontplus an essential cloakroom and an attached double garage.
Upstairs are five double bedrooms; the main bedroom suite has a walk-through dressing room and large en-suite shower room. Bedroom two also has an en-suite while the main bathroom, with bath and separate shower cubicle, serves the remaining three double bedrooms.
The creation of Woodford Garden Village is already well underway with buyers attracted to our superior properties, along with the wealth of green spaces and extra amenities being developed.
Simon Bennett, interim sales director for the North West, says:“It’s wonderful to watch this flagship development grow. It is constantly changing as new homes are created, like the superb Shackleton Fields phase, and more homeowners enjoy moving into their properties and making the most of village life.
“And, while they can benefit from the wonderful open spaces at Woodford Garden Village, they can look forward to so much more too as it develops and blossoms.”
As community life flourishes, the village is looking forward to welcoming its own public house in March next year, aptly named The Aviator, and construction work has already started on a brand-new primary school which is due for completion for the start of the 2022/23 academic year.
And, as well as its statutory obligations to fund education, healthcare, recreational facilities and highways improvements, we’re continuing to make voluntary donations to a wide range of local community projects, the most recent including Bramhall Cricket Club, the Millennium Youth Centre and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
Woodford Garden Village is a pioneering development situated on the southerly tip of Greater Manchester, near to Cheshire’s Golden Triangle of Wilmslow, Prestbury and Alderley Edge, as well as Poynton and Bramhall.
It is within easy commuting distance of Manchester city centre and the larger nearby town of Stockport.
