Quality but affordable housing in a prime location is often out of reach for first time buyers.
But the pioneering, not-for-profit property organisation Stockport Homes Group (SHG), continues its quest to change that with the latest acquisition to its burgeoning portfolio.
The award-winning organisation has just purchased Davenport Park, a stylish, six floor apartment block near the centre of Stockport. A deal was secured by Viaduct Partnerships Ltd, the development arm of SHG, the flats provide inexpensive accommodation without any compromise on excellence.
Formerly the site of a derelict hotel, Davenport Park is a mixture of one- and two-bedroom apartments - all of which are available on a shared ownership basis. As well as offering an opportunity for people to get on the property ladder, the block will also mean those compelled to downsize due to personal circumstances can still enjoy quality accommodation at affordable prices.
Residents moving into Davenport Park will enjoy a multitude of high-spec fixtures and fittings including high gloss kitchens and bathrooms as well as EV charging points, low energy LED lighting, high speed broadband, parking and secure bicycle storage.
What`s more – fulfilling the mantra of location, location, location - the apartment block lies on the edge of Davenport Park conservation area. – a peaceful enclave often jovially referred to as `Stockport`s secret suburb`. Developed from the 1890s to the Second World War, the area is a mix of Victorian, Edwardian and inter-war housing with some substantial villas redeveloped into flats and townhouses.
However, the tranquillity of the setting does not mean those living in Davenport Park will lose out on essential transportation links. The block of apartments is situated a short distance from Davenport Train Station which provides links to London and Manchester (Euston Station is only a two-hour journey away and Manchester airport only 10 miles away.) The centre of Stockport, a bustling hub of shops, restaurants and other amenities, is also on the doorstep of the development.
Davenport Park continues the commitment by SHG to make a transformative difference on providing opportunities for first time buyers and those who need that extra helping hand to get on the property ladder.
