If You’ve Spent The Last 10 Years Dreaming Of Living On The Shires, Don’t Miss Your Chance. With only four fabulous properties on this exclusive development, you may not get a better opportunity to make this state-of-the-art family home your own.

The four fantastic eco-friendly detached homes on The Shires were built around 10 years ago. But you probably knew that already. You may even have had a quick drive up to check out the imposing properties and to help visualise making The Shires your home.

No.1 The Shires was impressive when first built in 2013 but it’s even better now, with part of the built in double garage having been recently converted into a more beneficial (and fun!) games room.

It’s a luxurious, state-of-the-art family home, providing a spacious and sociable home for families who love spending time together…and entertaining friends and family.

As soon as you step inside you’ll be impressed. The double-height entrance hall with beautiful porcelain tiled flooring and a stunning sandblasted glass divider leads to the open-plan family room and kitchen/dining room.

The stylish and well-appointed kitchen is a chef’s dream. It has stunning high gloss fitted units with silestone worksurfaces and tiled splashbacks. The substantial central island shares the same high gloss units and worksurfaces, with a breakfast bar and Neff induction hob.

If the kitchen and family room are the social hub of the home, there’s a spacious lounge with a 'Barbas' stove inset into the chimney breast and a 2nd reception room where you can escape to chill out and relax.

Upstairs has five double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have ensuites with the master bedroom also benefiting from a dressing area.

The four-piece family bathroom is as luxurious as you’d expect, with a gorgeous bath and wetroom-style walk-in shower.

The beautifully landscaped back garden will be perfect for family get-togethers or hosting more lavish garden parties.

It’s private and secluded, with a low maintenance (artificial turf) lawn, a choice of seating areas, a BBQ area with a wood-fired pizza oven and even a covered area for a hot tub.

There’s ample parking on the drive, which may have informed the decision to recently convert part of the built-in double garage to a games room. Your teenagers (and big kids) will love it!

The luxurious build quality is second to none, but the property has also been built to be environmentally friendly too. It has a zoned underfloor heating system (warmed by an external air source heat pump) and a rainwater harvesting system, providing water on demand for laundry, toilet and hosepipe use.

The Shires is on the western edge of the city, with open fields opposite and Ashton & Lea Golf Club only a 5-minute drive away.

The semi-rural location feels tranquil and leafy, yet it’s only a 15-minute drive to the city centre and less than 10 minutes to the M6.

If you have young children, Lea Neeld's Endowed Church of England Primary School (rated “Good” by Ofsted) is only a 10-minute walk away, or 2 minutes in the car.

Older kids have a slightly longer journey to Ashton Community Science College (another “Good” school) but it’s only a 5-minute drive or less than a 10-minute bike ride away.

It’s hard to believe but this impressive, individually designed family home is even better in 2024 than when it was first built in 2013.

If you’re a family who demands the best you need to see it for yourself.
