Best Place to Live in Altrincham

Looking for a home in Altrincham? As Altrincham Estate Agents we’re often asked where is the best place to buy a property in and around Altrincham.

The truth is that the town boasts many truly appealing residential areas, as do the nearby villages of Hale Barns, Timperley and Hale, but let’s confine ourselves to talking about where is the best place to live in Altrincham.

It’s a great town – there is a wide range of shops from local independents to national chains. It’s a market town and has residential property in the heart of the town centre as well as a wide range of property of all styles and types within walking distance of the town.

First time buyers like apartments in the centre as they are very close to the Metrolink station that runs into Manchester City Centre and beyond.

Retired couples and singles can also live in the heart of the town centre with all the amenities of the town on their door step in one of a number of high quality retirement developments; these aren’t care or nursing homes, these are apartment buildings designed especially for the retired and can be owned or rented.

Families with both young and older children can choose from some fantastic Victorian or Edwardian homes, terraces, semi detached and detached and the area around Stamford Park to the east of the town centre is especially popular.

Modern developments have sprung up around the edge of the town centre with small detached and semi detached homes at affordable prices, as well as larger executive detached houses. The area around John Leigh Park, off Oldfield Road, is very popular and homes in this location are always in strong demand.

Every buyer or tenant has a different wish list; some want period property with character, some want to be close to the motorway junction for commuting and some want to be within walking distance of one of the area’s fantastic schools.

The best thing to do is to sit down and talk to your local estate agent and explain your needs, but one thing is certain, whatever the requirements of you and or your family, Altrincham has homes that will fulfil your needs.
