THE most ex­pen­sive home to be sold in Greater Manch­ester in Septem­ber was in Stock­port.

The Barn Stead, a vast 1920s pile, went for a whop­ping £1,400,000 and is a re­flec­tion of the boom­ing prop­erty mar­ket in the some ar­eas of the town, ac­cord­ing to the agents who sold it.

The prop­erty, on Dids­bury Road in Heaton Mersey, is one of a num­ber of homes fetch­ing over a mil­lion as well-off house-hunters turn to the neigh­bour­hood in­stead of the tra­di­tion­ally up­mar­ket sub­urbs of Dids­bury and Traf­ford.

“The Heatons has changed mas­sively over the last cou­ple of years”, said Jack McCreery, from es­tate agents Philip James Kennedy, who sold the four-bed­room home on Septem­ber 7.

“A lot of peo­ple have moved over from Dids­bury and Chorl­ton, due to the café cul­ture, The Savoy Cin­ema, the green space and the schools.

“Pri­est­nall School is rated as out­stand­ing, and we have three or four out­stand­ing pri­mary schools.”

The Barn Stead, hid­den be­hind dou­ble gates, boasts a re­cep­tion hall­way, games room, and four dou­ble be­d­rooms. It was pur­chased in 2012 for £980,000, but has since had a sep­a­rate an­nexe built onto it.

It’s one of four homes in Stock­port that made the top ten list for most ex­pen­sive prop­er­ties bought in the re­gion in Septem­ber.
