Levenshulme is an artsy, multicultural, community-focused suburb equidistant between Stockport (3 miles) and Manchester city centre (4 miles) that has become increasingly popular with families and professionals alike due to its proximity to the city centre and it’s wealth of local amenities. The new library is popular with residents, and there are several pleasant green parks, which provide the ideal spot to relax on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Conveniently, the development borders 70 acres of green space which is Highfield Country Park, a magnificent and greatly loved piece of the ‘countryside’ within the city. The Fallowfield loop circumnavigates Highfield Country Park, which is a fantastic opportunity for cyclists/runners and walkers to easily travel into the wider area from Chorlton to Ashton-under-Lyme and beyond without having to use a road.

Local schools are performing well, with several being rated as ‘good’ or above on their Ofsted reports. This is naturally excellent news for parents thinking of moving to the area, as is the fact that Arcadia Leisure Centre is also close by, with its good-sized swimming pool, gym and sauna.

If you do need to access Stockport or Manchester city centre, both Levenshulme and Heaton Chapel train stations takes minutes to get there, or alternatively, you can head southwards to Buxton and into the Peak District, the Midlands or London. Lytham St Anne’s is also within easy reach, which is ideal for a day-trip to the beach
