Originally opened as a workhouse by the Mayor of Rochdale in 1877, the historic buildings and clock tower have been an iconic landmark in Rochdale ever since.
Offering luxury living in a privileged setting, the scheme is set to become one of Rochdale's most exclusive and desirable addresses - creating a sought-after development of carefully converted mews homes and individually designed apartments. The ambitious project will see the huge building brought back to life using traditional building skills to repair and re-craft the distinctive stonework, roof and clock tower, as well as enhancing many original features.
Ideally located on the outskirts of the growing town of Rochdale, in the charming village of Wardle, residents of Birch Hill Gardens Apartments will enjoy both stunning surrounding countryside and the convenience of nearby amenities.
A recent ??250 million investment has further increased the area's appeal, with a brand new swimming pool just 2 miles from our development and the excellent Sandbrook Park leisure complex within easy reach. Featuring a multi-screen cinema, bowling alley, a Fitness First gym and a variety of eating places, Sandbrook Park provides something for everyone.
Birch Hill Gardens also offers superb opportunities for those who love the great outdoors. With an abundance of countryside, woodland and lakes on the doorstep, there are plenty of options nearby for residents to explore. Be sure to visit Watergrove Reservoir, perfect for walkers and dog owners, and the beautiful Hollingworth Lake area of Littleborough is just 3 miles away, with the lake bank easily accessible from the development. With stunning woodland to walk through and enjoy, the lake is a great place to visit and even hosts its very own sailing club, together with a range of watersports.
Close to commuter routes
Not to be overlooked by its stunning surroundings, Rochdale town centre has much to offer with its rich heritage, including the original Co-op shop at the Pioneers' Museum. It's also easily accessible, with the striking new Transport Interchange and the Metrolink providing great public transport options.
With its choice of beautiful apartments and town houses, convenient location, and fantastic local amenities, Birch Hill Gardens really is a great place to call home.
