Promotional Feature

Henderson Homes has appointed joint agents to market a collection of stunning stone-built detached homes in Bollington, which are turning the heads of local buyers.

Alderley Edge based, Andrew Nowell & Company, and the Prestbury office of Gascoigne Halman have each been appointed following a spark of enquiries in their areas from purchasers looking to relocate to the increasing popular semi-rural village.

Just last month, Bollington was singled out in The Sunday Times' coveted 'Best Places to Live' list for 2019, and it has also previously been hailed as the 'Best Place in Britain to Start a Family' in a 'Family Friendly' analysis run by

Designed for family life, the new five bedroom detached homes form the second and final phase of 'The Moorings', a delightful new development set within a private enclave off Hurst Lane in Bollington and adjacent to the Macclesfield canal.

Complete and ready for immediate occupation, the high specification properties have been crafted from warm buff sandstone with complementary slate style roofs and enjoy perfect symmetry and a picturesque waterside location with far reaching views.

The Moorings is the work of award-winning family-run homebuilder, Henderson Homes. Says Managing Director, Max Henderson, "Bollington is a beautiful village that's famous for it's characterful stone cottages, countryside and strong community camaraderie.

"There is so much going on, with a packed schedule of local events including markets, festivals, live music and comedy. There is a great range of village amenities with strong independent enterprises offering everything you need and you can walk, run or cycle along the Macclesfield Canal, through the hills up to White Nancy, along the Middlewood Way or pop into the Peak District which is just next door. If that's not enough, it's just minutes from Macclesfield town centre with a mainline train station offering regular services to Manchester, London and many other major towns and cities across the UK," he adds.

The new homes at The Moorings fulfil every expectation of what a 'stone country cottage' in an attractive village setting should offer. However, inside are spacious and light filled open-plan interiors that have been designed for busy modern lifestyles and are perfect for entertaining, both inside and out.

Explains Max, "Choosing an older home can often mean compromising on aspects such as room sizes, natural light and energy efficiency, with the only solution being to pay out for costly and inconvenient remodelling to force the accommodation to work for a modern family.

"Our aim at The Moorings was to remove the need for compromise. The homes offer the same coveted character and kerb appeal, but also provide families with a vast amount of light and spacious living accommodation as well as some great energy efficient features, such as underfloor heating, LED lighting and high performance timber framed windows," he comments.

The new detached homes offer 1850 sq ft of accommodation. Off a central entrance hall is an open plan kitchen with a breakfast bar and dining area as well as an adjoining utility room. On the opposite side of the hall is a large lounge with French doors that open onto a patio and rear garden.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, plus a family bathroom. Stairs lead to the second floor where a further two double bedrooms are provided, one with an en-suite shower room and space for a private lounge area making it a perfect master bedroom.

The homes are finished to a very high standard with an exceptional specification including a SieMatic kitchen with Silestone work surfaces, Quooker instant hot water tap, an integrated stainless steel oven, induction hob, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher and beautifully tiled floors. Each of the bathrooms and en suites features smart contemporary style sanitaryware with complementary brassware and floor and wall tiling and in the lounge is a cosy log burner.

Prices start at £650,000. For more information or to arrange a viewing contact Andrew Nowell & Company on 01625 585905 or James at Gascoigne Halman Prestbury on 01625 827467.
