According to, the North West has some of the lowest average housing prices in the UK in 2021. That means you’ll be getting more space for your money which is perfect for a growing family or luxury living. It’s not just housing that will get you more for your money. The general cost of living in the North West is comparatively lower than London and other areas of the south. This makes it a fantastic place for those looking to save for property or expand the family!

Stay connected

There are direct trains to Birmingham and London from Manchester, Liverpool and Warrington, which helps the North West stay well connected with the rest of the UK. The bus, train and tram network means that you can get around the region with ease. We pick our new build home development sites with the transport network in mind, which is why they’re all easily accessible by car and public transport. They’re in the perfect spots so you can easily get from A to B whether that’s work or play in the city.

The scenic views

Living in the North West you’re never far from breathtaking natural views. You can get to the lakes and market towns of the Lake District, challenge yourself to a walk in the Peak District, travel to the seaside to Blackpool or visit Ingleton waterfalls. Many of these places make it on to UK holiday destinations, so to live nearby is a huge benefit. Our Rochdale new build houses are situated in the foothills of the South Pennines with stunning sites to take in all around, and you could call that home with a Russell Home.

Never a dull moment

It’s not just stunning scenery you have access to while living in the North West. In a Russell Home you won’t be far from Liverpool, a vibrant city bursting with pop culture and heritage as well as beautiful river scenes and grand listed buildings. Chester will also be close by which has great tourist attractions and is packed with family friendly things to do. You’ll also be near Manchester, the third best city in the world. There, you’ll find a great shopping experience, unbeatable nightlife as well as theatres, bars, and restaurants for everyone’s tastes.
