First Properties at Poets Development Soon Available


Poets, a landmark housing development in the Swinton area of Salford, will soon make its first wave of properties available for purchase. The first six homes for off-plan sale at the 160-property mixed-tenure development have been announced by Salix Living.

The development is part of a wider project to develop the Poets Estate, also known as Beechfarm, and is the first of Salix Homes since becoming a stand-alone registered housing provider in 2015. As part of the ambitious redevelopment scheme, 146 properties are being demolished that had suffered historical structural damage with 160 brand new homes being built – 40 of which will be made available for outright sale, with the remaining 120 being homes for social housing.

“This is a very exciting time for Salix Homes, and we’re very proud to announce our very first properties for sale and play a major role in providing much needed housing in the area. By transforming the Poets Estate, we are helping to make Swinton an even more attractive place to live and work. Poets is just the start for us, and by 2020, we aim to have 400 new homes either developed or in development,” said Jonathan Drake, service director for Salix Living.

Throughout the development process, the residents on the estate have been involved to ensure there was minimum disruption to the community. Those affected by the demolition of existing properties on the estate were temporarily rehoused nearby, and are being given priority to move back into the new-build properties.

A range of two and three bedroom properties will be available with prices starting at £144,995 for a two-bedroom home and £159,995 for a three-bedroom property, with four-bedroom homes available to buy in the later phases of the development. The homes all feature integrated appliances in the kitchen, Porcelanosa tilling in the bathrooms plus off-street parking, turfed garden areas and a timber garden shed.

Interested buyers are urged to get in touch to register their interest in anticipation of the homes being in high demand. For further details, click on this link:
