Living in Greater Manchester

Location is one of the most important factors when it comes to deciding on your new home. Here’s what you can expect when choosing a Russell new build home in Greater Manchester.

Live near the 3rd best city in the world

In 2021 Manchester was voted the 3rd best city in the world by Time Out. It was rated highly for its culture, nightlife, restaurants and bars, community and commitment to activism. When you live in Greater Manchester, you’ll never be far from one of the best cities in the world and all it has to offer.

Lower cost of living

According to Expatistan, living in Manchester is 28% cheaper than living in London. These figures are actually based on Manchester City Centre, so often the cost of living is even lower in Greater Manchester’s boroughs. The ten boroughs all feature excellent transport links that connect you to the city centre and the other boroughs, making them ideal for commuters. They’re also perfect for those that enjoy heading into city life now and then, and with a lower cost of living, you’ll be able to enjoy events and dining out without hurting your pockets.

Never too far from top UK beauty spots

When living in Greater Manchester, you’re never far from some of the top beauty spots in the UK. It’s a short train ride to the Peak District for those who enjoy challenging country walks and unbeatable views. Saddleworth offers vast moorland views where you can breathe in fresh country air and you could be living right on their doorstep. From our own Stubley Meadows development, you can reach the foothills of the South Pennines, which offer stunning scenery for a Sunday walk.

A vibrant culture scene

Greater Manchester is world-famous for the culture it has to offer. From museums to music venues, it has everything on offer for you to enjoy. You could be living down the road from the birthplace of indie music and Grayson’s Art Club, world-famous theatres, Michelin star restaurants and an abundance of local independent bars, restaurants and cafes. If you don’t want to spend time in the city centre, you can visit any one of the Greater Manchester boroughs with their own independent communities on offer.

A sense of community

One of the reasons Manchester was voted the 3rd best city is because of the sense of community that it offers. This extends to each Greater Manchester borough too. Russell new build homes also build new communities with family-friendly amenities that enhance local culture. When you choose to live in a Greater Manchester Russell home, you become part of that new community with fellow homeowners, commuters and families with local spaces for you to enjoy.
