Highbank

REIP completes Bowdon resi development

Real Estate Investment Partnerships has finished work on its redevelopment of Highbank, a £9m residential development on Green Walk in Bowdon.

Originally built in 1861, the property sits within a mostly Victorian area of the Trafford village’s conservation area. Before being converted into apartments by the Brendan Flood-chaired REIP, the building was used as consultation rooms for The Transformation Group.

Highbank comprises 11 properties in total, part in the original building and part in a new-build element comprising two mews houses and a three-bedroom coach house.

The development, designed by Ollier Smurthwaite, started on site in September 2016, having secured planning consent in November 2015. Highbank provides two shared resident courtyards, one north and one south facing. Each homeowner also has access to two private parking spaces.

Steve Slater, chief executive of REIP, said: “Our vision for Highbank was always to provide contemporary homes that were in keeping with the surrounding area but had extra special touches such as the retention of period features.

Highbank has proved to be popular and more than half of the properties have already been taken off the market. Now that it’s all complete and people can come see the homes ‘in the flesh,’ we don’t expect they’ll be around for much longer.”

Hibbert Homes and Gascoigne Hallman are instructed as joint agents.
