Groundworks have commenced on an exciting new former brownfield site at canalside, a residential scheme off Gunco Lane to create new houses in Macclesfield.
Previously a storage and distribution depot for R H Stevens Transport Ltd, the 6.18 acre brownfield site that backs onto Macclesfield Canal will be transformed by Bellway Homes into an attractive development of 88 new build properties.
Reflecting its proximity to the historic canal and the protected Macclesfield Canal conservation area, the development will be known as Waterways 1831 and comprise an aesthetically pleasing mix of three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, all with garages or off road parking, plus a small number of affordable units.
A select number of different house-types will be available, all of which feature well planned layouts that make maximum use of light and space and have been designed with modern living in mind. Some of the four bedroom semi-detached homes will be built into the canal banking and offer split level living space across three floors.
As with every new home from Bellway, properties also benefit from open plan fitted kitchens, contemporary family bathrooms and en suites to the master bedroom and turfed and landscaped front gardens.
Sales director at Bellway Homes, Louise Chamberlain, commented:
“We’re delighted to be on site at Gunco Lane, making initial preparations on what is set to be a stunning and highly desirable new residential scheme.
“Appealing to purchasers looking for a well built and low maintenance new home close to water and open green space yet within easy reach of the thriving market town of Macclesfield, we expect the development to be very popular when the first properties are released for sale later this year.”
As part of the planning application and its continual commitment to the communities in which it builds, Bellway Homes is also making a Section 106 contribution which will be used by Macclesfield Borough Council to improve education and open space in the town.
Construction at Waterways 1831 is expected to take around two and a half years with a sales presence on site from the summer and a three bedroom showhome available to view towards the end of the year. Prices are yet to be released but interested parties are invited to contact Bellway or call 01925 846700.
