Bellway Homes has started a scheme to deliver 74 homes on a site that was formerly part of the Withington Hospital estate in south Manchester.
The housebuilder is to deliver a mix of three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes and two bedroom apartments. The development sits on Cavendish Road between Princess Parkway and the popular Burton Road area, close to the former main hospital site on Nell Lane since developed by PJ LIvesey.
The Bellway scheme will be branded as Eclipse. Louise Chamberlain, sales director at Bellway, said: “We’re delighted to have acquired this plot and are confident that the development will prove popular with families, first time buyers, young professionals and key workers looking for a high quality, low maintenance home in this highly desirable suburb with its great social scene and superb commuter links.
“We know that Eclipse will prove popular with those looking for their forever home as well as first time buyers. Bellway is especially keen to assist as many first purchasers as possible onto the housing ladder in such a key location by working in conjunction with the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.”
