Situated just four miles south of Manchester’s centre, it’s not surprising that Burnage is such a big hit with homebuyers. It’s well known as a family hotspot, thanks to its pleasant, laid-back atmosphere, which makes it feel a thousand miles from the bustle of the city.
This relaxing ambiance dates back to its historic roots, when it was once described by George Bernard Shaw as the prettiest village in Manchester. In the early 1900s, plans were made to create a ‘garden suburb’, which saw many semi-detached houses being built, not to mention several recreational spaces. Over a hundred years later, the area still retains this sense of serenity and calm.
As you can imagine, its proximity to central Manchester also makes it popular with commuters seeking easy access to the office each morning, and the train from Burnage takes just a few minutes to reach the city.
