About Marples Grange

Nowadays Marton falls within the modern town of Blackpool, but a thousand years ago, there were several small hamlets of Little Marton, Great Marton and Marton Fold. The name comes from Anglo-Saxon ‘Mere-tun’ - and the mere or lake after which Marton is named is still there; in fact, today, Marton Mere (and neighbouring Marton Moss) is a renowned local nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest, attracting all manner of birdlife, wildlife, flora and fauna. Marton itself is just three miles from the Lancashire coast, where central Blackpool meets the sea, and is close to the green enclave of Stanley Park, which contains the renowned Blackpool Zoo. Nearby Preston Old Road has a number of local neighbourhood shops, whilst Blackpool town centre has an excellent choice of supermarkets and shops, for which Blackpool has long been celebrated.

The coastal areas to the north and south of the town are glorious, from the southerly Ribble estuary and Lytham St. Anne’s to the historic former fishing town of Fleetwood, on the Wyre estuary overlooking Morecambe Bay and the Lake District, to the north. The area has no less than four Primary schools and two Secondary schools, and its principal thoroughfare, Preston New Road, leads directly to the eastbound M55 motorway, which connects to the north-south M6 (for The Lake District, Liverpool and the Midlands) and M61 (for central Manchester and Leeds). There are also rail links from Blackpool to Preston, for onward West Coast rail services (Preston – London: 2hrs 45 mins).

Marples Grange offers a variety of different styles of new homes. Together, these property types incorporate aesthetically pleasing choices of both contemporary and traditional styles of façades, finishes and architectural flourishes. These lend the entire development the ambience of having grown up gradually over time, just as a traditional village would do. What’s more, peaceful cul-de-sac avenues limit the speed and density of traffic, ensuring that the development possesses a quiet and tranquil nature. Properties have been designed with an easy-going lifestyle very much in mind. Large living spaces, dining areas and kitchens blend together to create free-flowing relaxation areas where there’s plenty of space for family gettogethers, socialising and entertainment.

In addition, large windows are strategically placed to ensure that interiors are flooded with natural light, whilst French doors open from interior areas onto rear gardens to create additional living areas in warmer weather. Fitted kitchens include plenty of storage cupboards and work-surfaces, whilst selected brand-name appliances such as cooker, oven and fridge-freezer are effortlessly integrated into kitchen layouts. Bathrooms, cloakrooms and shower-rooms feature designer sanitary ware with polished chrome fittings for a clean, bright finish. Principal interior rooms are fitted with downlighters or pendant fittings – whilst TV, telephone and internet points are conveniently located for home entertainment. Smoke alarms are fitted as standard, and garages have lighting and mains electricity sockets.
