Village 135 SalonLocated on the junction of Brownley Road and Hollyhedge Road in Wythenshawe, these new modern, energy efficient homes will provide a mix of 66 apartments for affordable rent, 39 apartments for shared ownership and 30 apartments for outright sale.

Mr and Mrs Rawlings caught sight of this prestigious development whilst living in Crewe and decided to up sticks to take advantage of this exciting complex, which also brought them closer to family and friends.

Mrs Rawlings said, “It is exciting to see the mixture of tenure this development offers.  I was born in Hulme and would have welcomed such a development when the area was cleared in the 1950’s.  We wanted to be closer to our family and Village 135 offers everything we need for the future.

We have come to the unveiling today and are amazed at the exceptional facilities on offer at 5 star standard.  Village 135 is impressive.  Do not hesitate to come and look for yourself – you will be as impressed as we have been.”

 

Nigel Wilson, Group Chief Executive of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group, said; “We are delighted to launch this exciting prestigious extra care scheme. These new Extra Care homes will provide housing for older people through a mixed tenure of affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sales. Village 135 will provide Wythenshawe and the surrounding suburbs a variety of housing options if they wish to downsize or want to find something better suited for their ever changing needs. The community hub I am sure will be very popular with the local community and will play a major part in establishing Wythenshawe as a place where people choose to live and work.”

Village 135 set in landscaped sensory gardens, will offer residents independent living, in their own 2 bedroom apartments designed to meet full mobility and access under Lifetime Homes, whilst ensuring living spaces are flexible in design and provide the level of care necessary for their bespoke and changing needs.
