Redrow - St John Gardens, M9
With a welcoming, community feel and friendly atmosphere, Moston is ideally placed for those who want easy access to the city, without any of the city stress. Just a few miles away from Manchester city centre, Moston is the perfect base from which to explore the city and the surrounding areas. Our St John Gardens development is situated in this vibrant village, and it similarly offers the best of both worlds. With architecture that boasts traditional charm and interiors that allow for all the luxuries of modern living, our acclaimed Heritage Collection is designed to make the most of your quality of life. Our St John Gardens development offers 3 and 4 bedroom homes, all of which are built to Manchester City Council’s ‘Homes for Life’ specification. And that’s what we believe, that your home should be; a home for life.
Despite it being a village, there is no shortage of things to do in Moston. Fitness fans will certainly want to join the Broadhurst Leisure Centre, which is home to a 25-metre swimming pool, sun beds, a fitness suite, workout studio, sauna and steam rooms. There is also a Fitness First gym on Victoria Avenue East, with exercise facilities and a cardio theatre. Nearby Heaton Park has a golf course, boating lake and a wide range of family activities. For something more relaxing, you should visit the quaint 90-seat cinema in The Miners Arts and Music Centre, or take the family for a couple of games at Broadhurst Bowling Club.
St John Gardens is well served by a wide choice of schools. Nearby there are seven primary schools and two secondary schools including Manchester Creative & Media Academy and St Matthew's RC High School. The Lighthouse Christian School is an independent institution that you may wish to consider for your children. For further education, The Manchester College, which used to be known as the Manchester College of Arts and Technology, has a campus in Moston and at One Central Park. These campuses offer further education for school leavers and adults. Manchester NTI (New Technology Institute) runs courses at One Central Park campus, which concentrate on IT and Management and Enterprise skills.
Whatever you are hoping to buy, there are plenty of local shopping centres and outlets for you to visit. Moston Lane will provide you with all of the small essentials, but for a larger shopping trip you may wish to head to the nearby Harpurhey District Centre. For trendy independent boutiques and shops, the local area of Didsbury and its ‘Didsbury Dozen’ is a popular option with those looking for something a little different. The Manchester Fort retail park is just a short drive away, and has all of the big high street names that you would expect. Here you can pick up all of the latest fashions, gadgets, beauty products and entertainment.
Moston has the intimate feel of a village, yet the closeness of Manchester city centre means that residents of St John Gardens are never far from the action.
