The semi-rural site off New Road, on the edge of the pretty market town, is proving popular with buyers as 17 of the first 19 homes to be released for sale were snapped up in just weeks.

Construction of the homes began at the end of last year and the first properties are expected to be available from the Spring.

Buyers have a selection of 12 different house types, offering a variety of internal layouts and bedroom numbers, and with 100 homes under construction there’s plenty of choice available.

Of the three and four bedroom properties released so far, prices range from £245,995 to £379,995.

A great deal of thought has gone into the design of homes at Stubley Meadows, ensuring each individual property has its own character and charm.

Drawing inspiration from the location and surrounding villages, the homes are finished in a traditional stone or red brick style, giving them a classic, timeless appeal.

High quality materials are used throughout all Russell Homes developments, and there is an impressive internal specification for all fixtures and finishings.

Surrounded by picturesque countryside, Littleborough is a door to rural Lancashire and the Pennine hills beyond. The town centre itself is a conservation area and is packed full of independent shops, boutiques, cafés, pubs and restaurants, with a selection of grocery stores and small supermarkets, banks and a post office.

Most of the larger superstore brands are within a 10-15 minute drive of the town, along with Rochdale town centre which is quarter-of-an-hour away by car or seven minutes by direct train. Manchester city centre is easily accessible from both local train stations, in just 19 minutes from Smithy Bridge or 22 minutes from Littleborough.

Littleborough is also on the Three Bridges Cycleway and Rochdale Canal, both of which are close to the Stubley Meadows development.

Daniel Kershaw, Russell Homes director, said: “Stubley Meadows will be a development of the highest quality, providing a range of options for the community, from large family homes to smaller starter homes, all of which are in demand in this area.

“As a responsible housebuilder we will be providing good size gardens, off-road parking, attractive landscaping and public open spaces. This, together with the semi-rural location and its easy access to the town centre, motorway network and national rail links, will see Stubley Meadows become a highly sought-after place to live.”
