Is This Levenshulme’s Time For Property Market Spotlight?
With everyone desperate to find the next “must-have” area when it comes to the property market, you will regularly see predictions about where people should consider for their next property purchase. In recent times, Levenshulme has been regularly cited as one of the leading up and coming areas in Manchester and the North, but it appears the area is finally coming into its own.
When you consider what Levenshulme has to offer, it makes sense that this is an area that people are keen to stay in or consider as their new home. There is a dependable rail station offering suitable links and connections, there is a strong range of reliable schools, there is a new library and there are many glorious parks which means you have plenty of options for enjoying outdoor life. There is also the fact that the array of Victorian terraces and semis make Levenshulme a dream for many people, creating a higher level of demand for property in this part of the world.
An area needs to offer buyers more
However, for many some people, the area has been lacking that extra something which as needed to make it a must-consider location but appears to be changing. This is because there is a growing number of dining, entertainment and leisure options which means that Levenshulme can now compete on the lifestyle basis that is so important to many people when looking for a home. There is no denying that some of the most popular suburbs in South Manchester offer a complete package for homeowners, but this is reflected in the price. You’ll find that Levenshulme is now catching up, which means that demand for this area is going to increase significantly.
The Levy Market, with a popular evening market which opens monthly, has been at the heart of community offerings but it will soon be joined by a new food market, which will be opened on a permanent basis. This is coming to Albert Road on the site of the former Port Office Building and the Sorting Office is set to provide a grocery store, a deli and there will be space for local producers to present their offerings.
There is also hope that a microbrewery will be added to the location and this would then ensure that beer is produced on the premises for the food hall. With two traditional ale houses in the local area, Fred’s Ale House and The Station Hop, there are plenty of places for people to enjoy a great drink, and this is the sort of feature that isn’t always mentioned by estate agents, but which helps to generate interest for an area.
Strong dining and drinking options make an area more attractive
While having a magnificent home with strong transport links and good schools nearby is of interest, people know that they need something in the local community. It is good to know that there are leisure and entertainment options in the local area, allowing people the chance to enjoy themselves when they opt for an evening out.
Further change is coming with the Levenshulme South Station, located on Stockport Road, being turned into a café and bar that will be family friendly. This venue has been closed for a long time, but it now looks set to become a business hub with co-working facilities and there could even be live events at the venue.
When it comes to transport options, the urban cycle loop is of considerable benefit, helping commuters get to the city quickly and allowing families a safe cycle route at weekends.
There is no shortage of areas claiming to be the next hot-spot but Levenshulme has all the ingredients that buyers are looking for these days.
