Wilmslow-based property developer, DeTrafford, has completed its regeneration of Elisabeth Mill in Reddish, converting the Victorian building into over 200 homes.
Engie Regeneration was the lead contractor on the Reddish scheme, which has converted Elisabeth Mill into 163 one- and two-bedroom apartments, around a central atrium. 50 further houses and apartments have also been completed on a neighbouring site.
Developers, DeTrafford, are presenting the Reddish mill as an attractive alternative for commuters into Manchester City Centre who want apartment living in a more suburban setting, highlighting the Stockport neighbourhood’s good transport connections.
DeTrafford bought the Victorian mill in 2012, which had become derelict since its closure in 2003. An adjacent mill in Reddish, Victoria Mill, had previously undergone a similar regeneration scheme. Elisabeth Mill was originally commissioned by local Victorian industrialist, Sir William Henry Houldsworth in 1874; he named the mill after his wife.
Apartments at the scheme are priced from £115,000, and townhouses from £210,000, and will become available for sale from 29th February. Some properties have also been made available for rental, starting at £595 pcm.
Chief Executive and founder of DeTrafford, Gary Jackson, said:
We’ve always looked towards the future and tried to do things differently. We’ve chosen innovative materials and built new features like the communal atrium to give people more outdoor space.”
Manchester based Ollier Smurthwaite was the architect on the scheme.
