Stockport’s The Heatons – the four neighbourhoods of Heaton Chapel, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Moor and Heaton Norris have been included in the Times Top 100 places to live in the UK.
Topping the North West region is Altrincham closely followed by Chester and The Heatons in Stockport, a commuter zone, with greenbelt and a conservation area, sitting within the SK4 postcode district.
Located just north of Stockport town centre, The Heatons have become a magnet for young professionals and families attracted by the abundance of quirky, independent shops, bars & cafes, good schools, affordable housing and yet located within a few minutes down the train track from Manchester.
The Heatons are four neighbourhoods housing residents with a strong sense of community, belonging, pride and individuality, attractive red brick Victorian villas and an abundance of green spaces and parks. The turnover of homes stand at just 6%, indicative of the desire for residents to remain in the area.
The refurbished Savoy cinema has become a popular centre for entertainment catering for all tastes and ages.
First time buyers looking for their starter home can expect to pay on average less than £140,000 while the young families can expect to pay around £300,000 with the larger villas attracting sales of between £450,000 to £500,000.
The Heaton Traders – a group of dedicated Heaton business owners and residents – work hard to create and protect the unique village appeal and an eclectic mix of shops and traders offering something for everyone. Naturally the traders were pleased to be in the times top 100.
