A slice of history on offer at Staley Hall
One of the most unusual developments in the North West is taking shape as a stunning refurbishment of Staley Hall gets under way – and already half of the Persimmon Homes properties have been snapped up.
David Hodgson, sales director for Persimmon Homes North West, said: “People seem to be inspired by the chance to own a slice of local history, with half of the 28 apartments and townhouses already sold. And we are not even due to open our view house until next month!
“We are breathing new life into the 15th Century Grade II listed Staley Hall, in Stalybridge, and its outbuildings, giving buyers the opportunity to feel like Lord or Lady of the manor.
“Many local people can remember the hall as a farm and we even had one lady visit the development who had kept a horse in one of the stables when she was younger. That stable is now being transformed into a family home.”
Persimmon are creating a range of unique one and two bedroom apartments along with two and three bedroom homes within the grounds of the hall, which was originally home to the ‘DeStavelegh’ family.
David added: “Many of the properties incorporate original features such as mighty timbers from the existing buildings on the site, as well as benefitting from modern building standards and quality craftsmanship.
“We have a range of incentives and assistance packages available, to help prospective buyers to secure their own piece of the past, including FirstBuy and the recently-launched NewBuy 95 per cent mortgages.”
Staley Hall, Staleybridge, is located in the foothills of the Pennines, on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The area is ideally placed for commuters, with easy access to the motorway network.
Prices start at just £88,995 for a ‘Heaton’ one bedroom apartment, going up to £170,995 for a three bedroom stone built ‘Arley’ mews home.
