Having lived in Cheshire for many years we have always been aware of the beauty in the area and the quality of life that the region grants to its residents.
The decision to develop the Swan Green site in Knutsford was born out of a desire to allow more families to enjoy the benefits of living in this beautiful town. Our homes have been designed so that families will able to grow together, while the local amenities and community spirit will mean they will flourish.
It turns out that we’re not the only ones who have been coveting a life in Knutsford. A recent report from property expert Savills shows that our not-so-well-kept secret is out – Knutsford is the place to be!
The publication – issued on 22nd November 2019 – states that there has been a surge in confidence in Knutsford property, with a “28% increase in the number of buyers registering with Savills across Cheshire.” It appears as though the main demand is coming from families and the picturesque town also is understandably popular with those wanting to relocate from other areas as well.
According to the Savills report, in previous years, it was the villages of Ollerton and Over Peover that were most in demand but over the last year, the WA16 9 postcode has materialised as the superior place du jour. House purchases have particularly increased in the southern villages of Allostock and Lower Peover – exactly where our Swan Green development is.
Lower Peover is a beautiful village with a fantastic primary school, amenities and community feel – don’t get us started on the cuteness that is the ‘Tree of Imagination’ – and it’s no surprise that others have noticed its desirability as well.
In a firm display of its community spirit, the village has recently been awarded the ‘Best Kept Village Award 2019’ by Cheshire Community Action. The award criteria included the overall appearance of the village such as its school grounds, pub fronts, churchyard and local businesses. It goes without saying that it’s the hard work and dedication of the villagers themselves that ensures the hamlet remains a picturesque place to live.
In terms of desirability, the village of Lower Peover really does have it all. It’s a place to breathe and enjoy the countryside while at the same time being a perfect commuting distance to Manchester and other nearby bustling hubs.
However, we believe that it is the very soul of the village, the community feel of the place and the wholesomeness of the area that is what is driving people to want to live there. These days, families are increasingly looking for a place to belong and Lower Peover is able to offer that sense of security and belonging in spades.
We can’t wait until our new homes allow many more families to enjoy the area and become part of this wonderful place.
