From a retirement development to an exclusive new build…


Success with two very distinct developments for Philip James Wilson as team gains sole agent rights to sell an exclusive £10.5m retirement development and sells a full development in 5 working days.

Recent times have seen an increase in confidence and market activity; mortgage application rates are still strong even after the introduction of the MMR and surveys are showing consistent rises in house prices across the country.

Demand is increasing everywhere, including the Heatons – something Mike Wilson, director of Philip James Wilson will testify to, “It’s certainly been a busy time for us recently as demand remains high in the Heatons. We are starting to see a real turn around in the housing market and things are only set to improve further.”

As the market changes, Mike and his team have continued to show their ability to generate success in the work they have done at Adlington House, a £10.5m landmark retirement development of 52 1,2 and 3 bedroom apartments. Philip James Wilson has gained exclusive agents rights to work alongside the developer, Adlington. Mike Wilson has stated they have experienced “phenomenal demand from the very beginning” and went on to explain the reasons why.

“Last week I showed a client around who has difficulties with mobility, this particular lady had seen other developments which hadn’t impressed her, but I knew she would love Adlington House. We took a good look around, testing the access points for size and my client was impressed at how well thought out everything was. There are double width electric entrance doors, large lifts and extra-wide corridors to allow for easy movement to all – whether the resident is on foot, in a wheelchair, or using a mobility scooter. The toilets, bathrooms, and utility cupboards are all accessible too, which makes life easier.”

The site is beautifully finished and everyone has been able to buy with confidence, knowing they won’t need to move home again in the future. Residents can enjoy the subsidised dining room, communal grounds, gardening options, quiet and formal lounges and work space which all contribute to the experience and sense of independence.

Claire Reede, Marketing Manager for Adlington said the following;

“We are delighted with the early success of our apartments at Adlington House. The feedback has been overwhelming and we’re delighted to be working with Mike and the team at Philip James Wilson, it’s been a credit to them that interest and enquiries have been so good.”


The Philip James Wilson team have also performed to an outstanding level with another development: The Heatons, a Merepark Homes development due for completion in September 2014 was entrusted to Mike and the Philip James Wilson team to sell. All 8 units of high specification, two bedroom, two bathroom apartments were released at the end of April and within just 7 days of the release date they were all under offer! Jon Wylson is the Land & Sales director and he felt Philip James Wilson were “the best choice by far” when it came to selling the development thanks to their impeccable local knowledge and expertise.

The speed at which this development sold demonstrates an improvement in the market, but also the ever-strong desire for superb quality properties. The development is in a location which benefits from fantastic transport links to nearby Stockpork, Manchester International Airport and Manchester City Centre via the motorway network and public transport.


This select scheme of apartments on Didsbury Road boasts Villeroy & Boch bathrooms, sleek Hansgrohe chrome fittings and private balconies for every apartment, enough to tempt any prospective buyer. The apartments presented not only an attractive purchase to owner occupiers, but an appealing investment opportunity for investors too due to the demand for rental properties in the local area.

Excitement will continue grow during the Summer while owners wait to collect their keys and make The Heatons their new home.
