Economical and sustainable

A Russell Homes new build home in Cheshire is a sustainable choice. Designed to be eco-friendly, our new developments are energy efficient using renewable energy wherever possible. They boast many sustainable benefits such as:

So, good news for the environment, but such a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability is surprisingly good news for your bank balance too!

Perfect for your working life

Our Cheshire new build developments aren’t as remote as you might think, getting to the office is easy owing to the great transport links nearby.

For commuters, it’s only 10 minutes to the M6 for an easy drive to Manchester or Liverpool city centres. To take the train it’s only a mile from Northwich station where trains run to Manchester in under an hour, and Chester in only 30 minutes. Even getting to London is easy, with trains taking less than 2 hours from nearby Crewe station.

Of course, if you’re working from home you can get the best of both worlds via hybrid working. Russell Homes new builds in Cheshire are designed with your home working lifestyle in mind, so you can work peacefully and productively, enjoying all that your home has to offer.

Perfect for your family life

There’s so much for families and children to do in Cheshire. Minutes from our Wincham development is Baron’s Quay, a multimillion-pound complex for shopping, family restaurants and even a cinema too. A little further afield there’s nationally recognised attractions like the UNESCO world heritage site Jodrell Bank Observatory, Delamere Forest for a memorable family day out and the beautiful National Trust’s Tatton Park in Knutsford.

Not only famous for great family days out, your Cheshire new build home is in the catchment area of some outstanding primary and secondary schools. A range of secular and faith schools are nearby, each with excellent Ofsted ratings.

Rich and fascinating history

With historical roots dating back beyond Roman times, you’ll be amazed to find out the intriguing history on your doorstep. Less than 40 minutes away in Chester you’ll be able to see the UK’s most complete Roman city walls and the remains of the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain.

Cheshire’s more recent history is equally fascinating. There are many, many museums within striking distance of your new build in Cheshire, where you’ll be able to discover more about the county’s history during the industrial revolution. Much of the production of this area has formed the heritage of the beautiful nearby towns and villages, famous for the productions of silk, cotton and (of course) cheese!

Naturally beautiful

A new build home in Cheshire benefits from some stunning scenery and landscapes, right on your doorstep. For example, Wincham is surrounded by beauty spots like Marbury County Park, Budworth Mere and Wincham Brook. In fact, our development benefits from a sustainable urban drainage system creating an ecological habitat and aiding the water management of the Brook. Perhaps the jewel in the crown of this stunning county is its areas of breath-taking natural beauty, the most famous being the Peak District. This amazing landscape is closer than you think. The Cheshire Ring canal network is easily accessible from nearby Northwich. Once a vital thoroughfare for trade during the industrial revolution, it’s now a fantastic way to take in these rolling hills and peaks of the Pennines.
