about the development
Nestled amongst the foothills of the beautiful South Pennines is one of Persimmon Homes' most exciting projects to date - the sympathetic restoration and conversion of the old Birch Hill Hospital and Clock Tower into a range of stunning apartments and town houses.
Originally opened as a workhouse by the Mayor of Rochdale in 1877, the historic buildings and clock tower have been an iconic landmark in Rochdale ever since. Offering luxury living in a privileged setting, the scheme is set to become one of Rochdale's most exclusive and desirable addresses - creating a sought-after development of carefully converted mews homes and individually designed apartments.
Birch Hill Gardens also offers superb opportunities for those who love the great outdoors. With an abundance of countryside, woodland and lakes on the doorstep, there are plenty of options nearby for residents to explore.
Be sure to visit Watergrove Reservoir, perfect for walkers and dog owners, and the beautiful Hollingworth Lake area of Littleborough is easily accessible from the development. With stunning woodland
to walk through and enjoy, the lake is a great place to visit and even hosts its very own sailing club, together with a range of watersports.
Close to commuter routes and not to be overlooked by its stunning surroundings, Rochdale town centre has much to offer with its rich heritage, including the original Co-op shop at the Pioneers' Museum. It's also easily accessible, with the striking new Transport Interchange and the Metrolink providing great public transport.
What is shared ownership?
Martin & Co Rochdale has partnered Home Reach, which is a government-backed Shared Ownership scheme that allows you to buy a share of a new home (between 50 and 75%).
Home Reach will own the share you don't buy and you will pay an affordable monthly rent to them on the remaining share. As time goes on, you can choose to increase your share in your home, up to 100% ownership.
A smaller deposit is required and the monthly payments are low, making it easier to buy the home you have always wanted.
You will have the freedom to make the property your own by redecorating and you can sell/move home at any time.
