The first phase of a housing development for active adults over 55 in Wilmslow has come to an end.

Jones Homes is building 73 new homes over two phases at Sanctuary Wilmslow which is a gated community off Coppice Way, across from Handforth Dean retail park.

All of the 33 two and three-bedroom apartments and cottages have been built by the developer in the first phase of the development.

So far, the housebuilder has sold 28 of the 29 homes that were released onto the market with the remaining property already reserved.

Three of the other properties are show homes and one is the sales office and these will be offered for sale alongside the final properties in the second phase.

The homes within the community have exclusive access to The Clubhouse which is at the centre of Sanctuary Wilmslow and will offer residents access to a spa, gym, sauna and steam room.

There will also be a hair and beauty treatment space, two residents’ lounges and a function room with a kitchen for catering events.

Simon Whalley, Sales Director for Jones Homes North West, said: “There has been a great deal of interest in the innovative living concept on offer at Sanctuary Wilmslow. We have had a lot of enquiries from people looking for an accessible, secure and peaceful location in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

“We have handed the keys over to 28 new homes on the development and we can see that a brand-new community with a real sense of belonging and togetherness is already taking shape. A major draw has been The Clubhouse which has quickly become the focal point of the community where neighbours and friends get together to enjoy a gym session, get pampered, arrange days out or just meet for a chat over a cup of tea.

“The majority of the properties we have sold have been snapped up by couples downsizing and searching for a home that’s more manageable. There has also been a significant number of single people buying here, who are looking for a smaller property and a more active social life with people of a similar age.

“All of the buyers have been attracted by the chance to live in a quiet, gated community, covered by CCTV cameras, which offers peace and round-the-clock security with the assistance of the on-site management team just a call away. Many residents are also engaging the services of the management team to take care of their garden maintenance, window-cleaning, housework and laundry, leaving them more time to enjoy themselves.”

Phase two of the housing development will see Jones Homes build a further 40 new homes, a mix of two and three-bedroom apartments and cottages.

Simon said: “We have released a selection of eight new homes for sale in the second phase. Construction is progressing well and these homes should be completed by the end of March and ready for buyers to move in.

“We fully expect that the strong demand we experienced for homes in the first phase will continue into the second phase. Purchasers here are reassured by the fact that top quality and high specification come as standard with a Jones Homes property.

“All homes at Sanctuary Wilmslow come ready to move into with carpets and flooring and a range of appliances, including an electric hob, a washer/dryer, a fridge/freezer and a wine cooler all included.” 

A choice of two and three-bedroom cottages are available to reserve at Sanctuary Wilmslow with prices starting at £419,950 and £469,950 respectively.
