A wave of interest in canalside homes
PROSPECT Homes has recently enjoyed an overwhelming response to the launch of Met 32, its new development of bespoke homes off Deansgate Lane in Timperley, near Altrincham.
Comprising 32 properties in total, Met 32 officially opened for inquiries two weeks ago and viewings are currently by appointment only.
Prospect however, has already been inundated, with 11 reservations received from plan.
The remaining semidetached and mews homes on the opening phase offer a choice of highly specified three and four-bedroom living priced from £219,950.
Collette Riding, sales manager at Prospect Homes, said: “We knew that Met 32’s desirable setting next to the Bridgewater Canal was going to appeal to a broad range of purchasers, but the early demand has exceeded even our high expectations.
“It is shaping up to be one of our most popular developments in years.
“Over half of the opening releases have been reserved within a fortnight and, given current levels of interest in the remaining plots, I would advise homebuyers to contact us at the earliest opportunity to avoid missing out.”
Serving a variety of homebuying budgets and preferences, Met 32’s impressive range of spacious house designs provide the advanced contemporary specification and energy efficiency which homebuyers have come to expect from Prospect Homes.
As well as an enviable canal-side setting, the development’s location is an ideal commuter base which lies within 20 minutes of Manchester city centre via the Metrolink service.
The Met 32 site has an industrial past as the former factory of worldrenowned Meldrum Bros engineering company was located there.
Founded by James Jones Meldrum along with his brothers Thomas Frederick and John Wesley, Meldrum Bros was a market leader in the design and manufacture of furnaces and stokers, including its famous Destructor, which was supplied to companies and institutions globally.
During construction Prospect welcomed historians Keith Warrender, Hazel Prior and Michael Riley to view progress after Keith was asked to provide information for a framed commemoration of the site’s history to display in the Met 32 sales centre.
Prospect managing director Neil Waddington said: “We are grateful to Keith, Hazel and Michael for their help in making sure the site’s history is suitably commemorated.
“The Meldrum name will certainly live on here and we hope to name the roads and some house types after the brothers to establish a permanent recognition.”
