Best of Cheshire


A HARTFORD housing development launched over nine years ago may have taken its final sale – but its legacy will last much longer.


Even though Redrow has sold-up at the award-winning Hartford Grange, off Walnut Lane, local people can still reap the benefits.


As well as building 270 new homes, Redrow has made community contributions totalling circa £900,000*, including amounts for education, train station improvements at Hartford and Green Bank and off-site playing pitches. It’s also provided 83 affordable homes for shared ownership or social rent.


Above and beyond the Section 106 commitments attached to the planning applications, Redrow has also given voluntary donations totalling more than £25,000 to a raft of good causes in the area.


In fact, the very first Hartford Community Fund was the beginning of a grant-giving programme which has seen Redrow give away more than £160,000 across the north west of England.


Anna Evans-Kerr, head of sales at Redrow NW said: “In Hartford itself we’ve helped to fund a diverse range of projects and activities, from sports equipment for primary school pupils and tables for use by a memory café for people with dementia, to winter jackets for community first responders, kits for sports teams, a defibrillator for a local cricket club, and many more.”

Over the years at Hartford Grange, Redrow has also hosted a series of five hugely popular Christmas events, bringing villagers together on the village green and raising thousands of pounds for charities, including The Joshua Tree, Meningitis Now, St Luke’s Hospice, Hartford Young NSPCC and Chesnut Lodge School.


“Winner of a UK Property Award in 2019 for best residential development in Cheshire, we feel that Hartford Grange is now firmly part of the local landscape and that’s due to a combination of the quality of our homes and the efforts we’ve made to be a part of – and support – the local community,” Anna added.


They say as one door closes another door opens and that is certainly the case in Hartford where Redrow has two other successful developments ongoing  – Weaver Park and Water’s Reach.


Like Hartford Grange, they feature homes from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts-inspired Heritage Collection, combining quintessential character and timeless exteriors with effortlessly modern interiors and contemporary living spaces.


They boast all the benefits of a country village location, while being perfectly placed to access amenities that nearby towns and cities have to offer, including places like Manchester, Chester and Liverpool.


Weaver Park offers a range of three and four-bedroom family homes and current availability includes The Shaftesbury, a four-bedroom detached property priced from £449,995. It boasts an open plan kitchen/diner and living area, a separate lounge, ground floor cloakroom, utility and en-suite to the main bedroom.


“Both Weaver Park and Water’s Reach, which has some large three and four-bedroom homes coming soon, offer exceptional settings for our homes, and we look forward to continuing our work in the community,” said Anna.
