What’s Been Going on at the Levenshulme Branch This Month?


It’s beginning to look a lot like SPRING!

The weather seems to be getting warmer, the evenings are lighter and it’s starting to feel like spring has finally sprung here in Levenshulme.

The local property market is in full bloom now and demand for houses in and around Levenshulme is higher than ever. We’ve registered a large list of new, qualified buyers over the past month who are all looking for their perfect property in the local area.

Although we’ve had a large proportion of new instructions this month, we seem to sell properties just as quickly as we instruct them! Demand certainly outstrips supply here in Levenshulme which is partly why we’ve achieved record selling prices for our vendors in such a short space of time!

So, why do so many people want to live to Levenshulme?

If you’ve ever visited our vibrant town centre, you’ll have noticed that there’s always something exciting to do. New businesses continue to open and existing businesses go from strength to strength bringing diversity and enjoyment to our local high street.

Not only is Levenshulme known as one of Manchester’s most exciting food and drink scenes, but it also has an array of excellent schools for all ages. In fact, Levenshulme High School has been recently listed as one of the top 10 schools in Greater Manchester. Families looking to settle down in an exciting area with great schools usually put Levenshulme at the top of their list.

The Levenshulme community love a good celebration which is why we had such an exciting line-up of events for St.Patricks Day. We even managed to join in the fun whilst we were busy working on the Saturday!

The next date for the calendar is St. George’s Day which is fast approaching on Monday, 23rd April. We’ll keep you updated with any up-coming celebrations happening in Levenshulme on our social media and if you’re organising something fun we’d love to hear about it! Tweet us and let us know whether you have an event or any special offers to celebrate the big day.

So, what can we expect to see happening in Levenshulme next month?

You may have seen an article in the Manchester Evening News about Levenshulme’s former main post office and its plans to bring the old building back to life. Plans have been put forward to transform the post office into a new food hall, microbrewery and grocery shop in order to bring the iconic building back into business. The post office and sorting office site on Albert road was home to the POD (Post Office Deli) for many years and recently to The Buttery which closed in 2017.

Neil Buttery, one of the partners who ran The Buttery, is now working with Kit and Ellie Knowles, of environmental consultancy Ecospheric, to transform the space into a food hall. They hope that the food hall will feature five food outlets from local traders and will be a welcome addition to our thriving community. The local community are organising two public meetings to discuss this idea further. These meetings will be held at The Klondyke on Monday 9th April from 3.30pm for Traders and then 6.30pm for our local residents.

With all of this activity happening within the property market and our lovely, little community there’s never been a better time to live in Levenshulme.

So, if you’re looking for any advice about buying in the area or you’re thinking about selling your home and you’re wondering what it might be worth, we’re here to help!

Pop into our office on the corner of the market space and let’s have a coffee and a chat to see how we can get you moving.
