A wave of in­ter­est in canal­side homes

Stockport Times West - - 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.”
