Bolton offers impressive range of new homes for all buyers
The market town Bolton on the West Pennine Moors offers a wide choice of new homes to attract to all sorts of buyers - from urban apartments that might appeal to young professionals, through to substantial detached homes in the suburbs to suit growing families.
Located in Greater Manchester, Bolton is well-placed for the M61, offering easy commuter access to Manchester, Merseyside and beyond. Rail services include direct inter-city rail links to Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester, while Manchester's International Airport is only 20 miles away. For shoppers, Bolton's traditional outdoor market is said to be the best in the North West, while its high street stores and modern malls attract visitors from across the region.
On the edge of town in a pleasant waterside setting, Bovis Homes' Smithills Glade incorporates two- and three-bedroom homes priced from £99,995, surrounded by natural woodland, but with local shops and facilities close by. The development is in an excellent spot for commuters, right at the heart of the UK's motorway network, offering easy access to Bolton town centre just two and a half miles away, to Manchester International Airport and to other key destinations in the region.
Wainhomes' Devonshire Park is a development of one- and two-bedroom apartments and three-, four- and five-bedroom family homes set in the sought-after residential area of Heaton in Bolton, about a mile and a half from the town centre. It's close to several local golf clubs, and is just a few miles from the Middlebrook shopping centre, offering a whole host of out-of-town shopping and entertainment options. Likely to have a wide appeal from first-time buyers through to large families, Devonshire Park has a number of purchase assistance schemes available. These include the housebuilder's own Part Exchange scheme for those with an existing home to sell, and the government's NewBuy and Help to Buy schemes, which can help buyers secure a property with as little as 5% deposit.
Overlooking the Eagley Brook valley on the outskirts of Bolton, PJ Livesey has a range of luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments for sale in a converted Grade II-listed cotton mill, priced from £89,950, and with shared equity options available. Offering large windows and plenty of space, the award-winning apartments at The Cottonworks combine many of the building's original, historic features with all the comfort of the latest technology for easy modern living.
Jones Homes has a prestigious development of four-bedroom detached homes called The Meadows situated near the popular Middlebrook out-of-town retail, leisure and business destination near Junction 6 of the M61 motorway. Designed to suit modern lifestyles, this collection of contemporary homes provides spacious and airy living from £239,950 (or £191,960 with the government-backed Help to Buy scheme). The location is also within easy reach of the West Pennine Moors plus country parks, canals, and numerous popular family attractions.
Just down the road, Persimmon Homes has created Middlebrook View, offering a range of two-, three- and four-bedroom houses and apartments priced from £110,995. Again, these homes are a short drive from the M61, ideal for commuters, and close to Lostock train station and Horwich Parkway offering direct journeys to Blackpool, Bolton and Manchester.
