Handforth is a modest community of fewer than 6,300 residents, but it’s one that’s quickly gaining in popularity. A big part of that is its location; it’s set just 7.5km from Stockport, and barely 15km south of Manchester city centre. It’s also just 4km east of Manchester Airport and less than 6km from both the M56 and M60 motorways.
In short, it’s superbly convenient for busy commuters and yet, for all that, it has a decidedly rural air. To its east and west lie a golf course, farmland and the National Trust’s Quarry Bank, while just a little way further to the east, visitors can enjoy the open spaces of Lyme Country Park and the Peak District National Park.
Cheshire’s Golden Triangle
Handforth and Wilmslow are very closely linked. Their two railway stations stand less than 1.5 miles apart and Manchester Road passes through the heart of both communities.
Handforth and Wilmslow share a number of local schools and, for many Handforth residents, Wilmslow is a convenient extension to the local retail and leisure offering.This closeness adds to the upmarket appeal of Handforth. In its own right, it has a distinctly affluent, semi-rural feel but local property values are further enhanced by their proximity to what is informally known as “The Cheshire Triangle.”
Willow Bank House is currently the subject of a high-quality conversion project that will turn a former office building into some of the town’s most desirable modern apartments.
Willow Bank House will produce nine units in all, each fitted out to an impressive standard. Comprising six single-bedroom apartments and a further three with two bedrooms, it offers a choice of sizes and configurations, all well suited to the needs of young families, commuters and professional workers with jobs in the area.
The building itself is brick-built with energy-efficient double glazing and effective insulation in the walls, floors and ceilings. This ensures interiors that are warm, dry and inexpensive to run. The units also come with the option to secure a dedicated parking space.
