Manchester is one of the world’s most famous cities and is known for its leading retail outlets, restaurants and venues. If you are considering moving to or across Manchester, it makes sense to do your research and find out what the best areas are for your needs and budget.
Green spaces, great schools and relaxed nightlife
Some of the most desirable areas of the city include Didsbury, Chorlton and Sale. They are known for their laidback nightlife, generously sized green spaces and the high quality of their schools. These areas are home to a range of period properties and offer opportunities for those with more to spend as well as those with tighter budgets. If you do wish to purchase a property in Didsbury, you may need to take action quickly as these homes don’t tend to stay on the market for long.
Period properties, independent shops and great community spirit
Chorlton is located a short distance from Didsbury and is incredibly popular amongst families and young professionals. The area is noted for its delicatessens and independent shops as well as its trendy bars and eateries. Blending the old and the new, it is home to a range of modern apartments as well as period properties. Heaton Mersey and Heaton Moor are located just outside of Manchester and are also popular with buyers who love their close-knit community feel.
Countryside access and excellent transport links
Sale may lack the profile of Didsbury and Chorlton but is ideal for those seeking a quiet suburb with a range of useful facilities. The leafy Trafford suburb offers excellent links to the city centre as well as the Trafford Centre and is conveniently located close to the Cheshire countryside. Also frequently cited as the best places to live in the Manchester area are Altrincham, Prestwich, Castlefield and Fallowfield, amongst others.
