Move up the property ladder to a family home at Cotton Square, Ancoats


FIRST-STEP has recently launched our exciting and hugely popular residential development Cotton Square, in the stylish urban village of Ancoats, Manchester and there are some exciting family homes included in the development

60% of Cotton Square has already been snapped up, with all the apartments being reserved in just four days!

There are three bedroom townhouses available for sale in the Cotton Square development.  With three bedrooms, the light and airy Townhouses are the perfect homes for those looking to start or grow a family. They are within five minutes’ walk of the newly built New Islington Free School, which is currently rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED, as well as numerous day nurseries

The Townhouses would also provide the extra space needed to work from the comfort of your own home in a home office. On the edge of the city centre, Ancoats is a great place to work. It has perfect networking opportunities and is in the thick of the media, creative, financial, insurance, legal, transport, retail and recruitment areas.

The Townhouses are approached via a Victorian-styled ‘secret street’ and enjoy landscaped urban gardens outside each front door

Ancoats’ city centre setting makes it a haven for family friendly activities. There are walks and bike rides along the nearby canal to feed the ducks and spot local wildlife, whereas more boisterous activities to burn off energy include the world class sporting facilities at Sportcity, a trampoline park and climbing centre.  A whole host of museums, family friendly gigs at Manchester Arena and several cinemas for the latest releases are within walking distance of Cotton Square; whereas for a day out, Sealife Manchester, Legoland Discovery Centre can be reached in 30 minutes drive. Almost all of the local artisan coffee shops offer kids menus and some even have adopted the Babychino craze. The development is just a few minutes’ walk from all major transport interchanges, such as Manchester Piccadilly and Shudehill. Trams, buses, coaches and trains are all within close proximity. 

If you’re worried that this will be a little out of financial reach, don’t forget that Help to Buy can help to secure your urban village dream in Cotton Square, Ancoats.

One of these last few remaining properties could be yours, and we would encourage you to look into the Government’s Help to Buy programme. For instance, for first time buyers, Help to Buy can assist with a 20% equity loan, with a deposit of just 5%.

Did you know that Help to Buy is there to help anyone with a property purchase, whether you currently own a home or not?

If you’re looking to upsize, Help to Buy can enable you to purchase a larger property than a standard mortgage will, provided you sell your existing property. Effectively, with Help to Buy, the mortgage interest rates are based on a 75% loan to value product, which could mean lower monthly repayments.

Now there’s no excuses for you and your family to not be the proud owners of our new urban Townhouses at Cotton Square in Ancoats!
