Affordable housing specialist Magenta Living has officially started work on its £7.9million new development in Shavington, Cheshire, due to be completed in Spring 2023.
The 45-unit development scheme has been named ‘Woodnoth Grange’ and comprises of a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes available for affordable rent and shared ownership, as well as one-bedroom apartments and bungalows for rent, bringing high quality, affordable homes to the area. The style of the new homes will complement the local area and existing homes and will offer a modern and environmentally friendly option to rural living. The site sits just behind the much-loved local pub, The Elephant, on Newcastle Road.
Brian Simpson, chief executive of Magenta Living said: “We are delighted to start work on-site at Woodnoth Grange in the beautiful area of Shavington. Woodnoth Grange is a fantastic scheme that offers something for everyone with a mix of shared ownership and affordable rent with one, two, three and four-bedroom homes available. Our contractor, MCI, has been excellent and are currently working through all weathers to ensure completion in 2023. I’m really looking forward to seeing this development take shape and welcoming our new tenants upon completion. This really is an exciting time for Magenta Living to be building new homes and expanding our portfolio within the Cheshire East area.”
Magenta Living will be marketing the shared ownership properties in house and has ambitious plans to build over 1,000 homes over the next five years with plans to build high quality, affordable homes across the North West of England including Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire. Magenta Living recently completed a 33-unit development scheme in Audlem, Cheshire, which was their first development in Cheshire East.
