Philip James procures the sale of exclusive £10.5m retirement development


Philip James Wilson has procured the £10.5m sale of Adlington House, a landmark retirement development in the heart of Heaton Chapel. Working alongside Adlington, Philip James Wilson will sell 52 apartments in this sought-after building. Director, Mike Wilson, explains why it’s a great deal for Philip James and great news for The Heatons


“This exclusive retirement development is just what the Heatons needed and here at Philip James Wilson we are delighted to be the main sales agent. Although this is our first large retirement project, our reputation in The Heatons illustrated to the developer how large and discerning our client list was, and they haven’t been disappointed. From the moment we pitched to sell Adlington House I knew it was special; we hadn’t seen such a high-quality retirement block in The Heatons for years. And because developments of this calibre with such high-quality specification are rare, we’ve seen phenomenal demand for the site from the very beginning.”


“Last week I showed a female client around who has disabilities. She hadn’t been impressed by other developments but I knew she’d like Adlington House. We took a good look around, tested all of the access points and she was impressed at how well thought-out it was. The double-width electric entrance doors, large lifts and extra-wide corridors made access easy for anyone on foot or in a mobility scooter. The accessible toilets, bathrooms and utility cupboards all added to the ease of use.”


“It’s such a beautifully-finished site that people can buy with confidence and know they’ll never have to move again, but at the same time feel they still have control over their lives. The subsidised dining room, communal grounds, gardening options, quiet lounge, formal lounge and work space all add to the experience and sense of independence. Adlington House is also located close to Heaton Chapel train station and major bus routes into both Stockport and Manchester city centre, so residents will always have plenty of visitors.”


“And the cherry on the cake? Every apartment has its own private outdoor space; essential for anyone downsizing from a house and worried about having nowhere to sit!”


“If you’re planning your retirement and want to live in South Manchester’s most exclusive retirement apartments, Philip James Wilson are the people you need to speak to. Call my office today on 0161 431 5556 for full details.”
