Housing in Cheshire

Housing in Cheshire

The popular preconceptions about Cheshire are of huge gated mansions owned by premiership Footballers and rich rock stars- and they are right! The wealthy who have made their homes in Cheshire reside comfortably in areas like Hale Barns, Prestbury and Bowden, where a shortage of stock keeps the market hungry. But while there are more millionaires in the county than anywhere outside London – including the Duke of Westminster - there is a diverse portfolio of housing in Cheshire to suit lesser budgets.

The beauty of Cheshire as a place to live is that it has something for everyone. Those who want a home close to the rugged North Wales coastline can choose to live in the Wirral, the city slickers desiring an easy commute into Manchester can opt for a pretty Victorian terrace in Hale and a family seeking good sized accommodation will find what they are looking for in towns like Northwich or villages such Tarvin and Weaverham.

In its villages and towns you’ll find traditional shops and markets. Cheshire's established residential areas are set in attractive surroundings, have an outstanding choice of schools and colleges and are in close proximity to airports, mainline railway stations and motorways.

Tarporley is one such location, nestling in beautiful countryside between Crewe and Chester and offering everything from independent boutiques to a world class golf course. It’s a hub that serves smaller villages such as the delightfully named Bunbury, just a short distance away. Nantwich is another of Cheshire’s pretty historic market towns that is such an attractive place to live with its historic half timber buildings and healthy mix of shops and boutiques. Another appealing location is Malpas with its lively community spirit and country pubs.

There is no denying that Cheshire is a much-sought after place to live, with its vast estates, modern houses and wealthy business community. Yet it retains its status as a fashionable location not least because it has some of the country’s most delightful countryside juxtaposed to the two great cities of Manchester and Liverpool.

The fact is, Cheshire is a prime location. The housing market remains buoyant and it continues to be a hot spot for developers. It is a place where you can live and have the best of all worlds. A fantastic business location and place to really put down roots and make a life.
