Exciting new Development coming to Chorlton

Parkview, an exciting new development of 12 modern two bedroom two bathroom apartments is on site
in popular Chorlton. The scheme is designed to accommodate a variety of end occupiers including City professionals and first time buyers. The contemporary kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, high specification electrics and all aspects of the apartments have been designed to meet modern, urban lifestyles.

The apartments, designed by Merepark Homes, are located close to the Tram station in Chorlton with nearby Didsbury and Manchester City centre just ten minutes away.  The new development is positioned in an established location off Barlow Moor Road, alongside existing residential apartments and businesses, allowing for people to benefit from this vibrant area of Manchester.

Chorlton’s transport links with Manchester Airport and the national motorway network along Princess Road are excellent, and the centre of Chorlton has a wide range of eclectic shops, restaurants and bars that cater for everyday requirements. Chorlton is also well known for its good schools and recreational facilities and Chorlton Water Park and Chorlton Green are wonderful destinations for walkers, runners, and cyclists.

Michael Thompson, Land & New Homes Director at Gascoigne Halman says, “We are delighted to be selling these apartments being delivered by Merepark Homes. The high standards of design and build quality, as well as the convenient location to the centre of Manchester make these apartments very desirable for professionals who commute into Manchester.”

Top tips for savvy sellers!

If you are contemplating putting your home on the market, we have some handy tips to help you transform your property, enabling potential buyers to connect and envisage living in your home.


Neutral colour scheme

A neutral colour scheme allows a buyer’s imagination to run wild and helps them to project their own style on to a property. Also using natural or pastel colours to reflect light can help a room feel less sterile.


Chic not shabby

We all live with unfinished DIY jobs around the house, but when your property hits the market those niggling little jobs need your attention! Spend a day fixing the small but noticeable problems, this can instantly upgrade your house, going from shabby to chic with minimal effort.


Spick and span

Giving your house a really good clean is a great way to start the selling process, it is much more appealing for buyers to enter a clean property and it’s one less job when it comes to moving day.


Save space

Try to make the most of the space you have, if your rooms are full of furniture remove one item for viewings to create a sense of space. On the other hand, if your rooms look empty add furniture to help the room come to life!


Light and bright

Keep your home as light as possible, if buyers think your home is dark and dingy their interest might start to fade. Turn on lights in dark hallways and landings and throw open the curtains to let the natural light fill the room.


Define your rooms

Create a purpose for each room in the house; it’s important that each room appears as it is intended to be used. If you’re selling a three bedroom property, allow buyers the opportunity to view three bedrooms rather than two bedrooms and a storage room.
