Contractor brings string of new developments to Altrincham

The Downs, Altrincham

Bolton-based boutique construction specialist Artez is bolstering its property portfolio with a number of new developments across Altrincham in Greater Manchester.

The contractor is currently on site at three different Altrincham schemes which will bring a total of 12 unique new properties to the town.

The first project – due for completion in January 2018 – is situated on The Downs in the centre of Altrincham and will see the upper floors of an attractive Victorian villa converted to create three highly specified, individually designed apartments.

Previously used as office space, the property boasts charming period features which will be retained to complement the contemporary refurbishment.

Meanwhile, The Mount has been designed by GA Studio and constructed by Artez. It will comprise four contemporary link-detached houses close to the nearby amenities of Hale Barns and will be ready by Spring next year.

Each will boast three to four bedrooms, private parking and courtyard gardens.

Number 60 Stamford New Road is a unique property based on Altrincham’s high street and can be identified by its striking Art Deco frontage.

Work began in November 2017 to transform the former commercial site into a mix of five high-end residential apartments and boutique retail outlets. As with The Downs, Artez is working on this project alongside local developer, Novo Property Group.

Mike Banton, managing director of Artez, said: “Altrincham has experienced a major makeover during the last 12 months. Thanks to recent investment, the town is very much back on the map and people are travelling from far and wide to visit the area.

“This is set to continue with future plans looking to bring even more to Altrincham in terms of restaurants, bars and entertainment, meaning that property in the vicinity has a higher demand than ever.

“Each of these three projects are unique in their own way and offer something to suit anyone looking to invest in the area, whether they’re a young family, empty nester or artisan retailer.”

Earlier this year, Artez also completed work at Latham Hall Farm on Clay Lane. Dilapidated farm buildings were demolished to make way for four new-build homes.
