After a year off in 2017, many of the gardeners are already thinking of ideas for new plants and designs for the coming year, and are excited at the thought of taking part in another successful charity event for St Ann’s Hospice, and other charities. We expect to have most gardens from previous years taking part, as well as a number of new gardens opening their gates to the public. Expect some art and entertainment too!
This popular community event is due to take place on Sunday, June 17, 2018. If you would like to open your garden, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and the event organisers will be in touch!
The much anticipated Bisque & Beyond has recently taken residence here in the heart of Didsbury village, the former florist shop has been completely transformed by the new owners into a tastefully styled arts and crafts café and is set to open this Spring time!
A truly independent family owned and ran café, it promises to offer a wide range of art projects, from paint a pot to decopatch, clay imprints and commissions, belly casts, personalised gifts and beyond!
We should expect delicious and locally sourced food and drinks, homemade cakes and bakes and a wide range of refreshing beverages, including made to order smoothies and shakes and even local craft ales, there really is something for everyone! This brand new concept café is sure to be a firm favorite amongst young families in the area and a welcomed addition to the village.
Marketed by JP & Brimelow is this well presented flat close to Didsbury village, situated at the end of Whitehall Road these purpose built apartments always rent well and are a stone’s throw from the Metrolink. The flat is on the market for offers in the region of £135,000 and would achieve a rent of £650pcm, this gives an annual yield of 5.7%.
We wanted to take a look at how overall average prices of flats and houses have changed in the last eight months. This is quite a short time frame so there’s a fair bit of volatility from month to month but the story it tells is an interesting one nonetheless.
Marketed by Gascoigne Halman for £175,000 is this modern purpose built apartment in the sought after Didsbury Point development. Within easy reach of the Metrolink and Burton Road, the property is sure to appeal to professional tenants wanting to commute into the City Centre and also enjoy vibrant West Didsbury village. These properties rent really well and you could expect to achieve £800pcm once the flat has had some cosmetic improvements. This return would give an approximate annual yield of 5.4%!!
Marketed by Reeds Rains for £250,000, this two bedroom penthouse apartment is an excellent buy to let opportunity. Located close to Didsbury village and within a 5 minute walk from the Metrolink this property would be popular with professionals. With the bonus of underground parking and a south facing sun terrace this is an opportunity not to be missed. You could expect to achieve a rent of £1,000pcm giving an annual yield of 4.8%.
We have a studio apartment for sale in West Didsbury for £125,000 which is currently tenanted at £475pcm. With an annual yield of 4.5% this buy to let opportunity could be the low maintenance investment opportunity you have been looking for! Studio apartments are popular with professionals due to their lower rents, this one is located a stone’s throw from the West Didsbury Metrolink, Wilmslow Road and the village.
Situated in the grand and imposing Holly Royde House, this one bedroom apartment would be a great buy to let for investors wanting a high end and low maintenance property. Located equal distances from West Didsbury village and Withington this apartment is close to excellent transport links and amenities. Depending on the time of year you can expect to achieve a rental of £800pcm but possibly more in the busy summer months, this gives a yield of 5.3% but remember there will be a service charge to pay. The property is marketed by Jordan Fishwick for £180,000.
Marketed by Reeds Rains for a guide price of £325,000 is this three bed semi which is in need of a full refurbishment! Once renovated houses like this will achieve £425,000 and rent for around £1,350pcm so there is definitely some money to be made here. I imagine there will be a lot of interest in this property as it is close to Didsbury village and will appeal to developers as well as buyers looking for their own family home.
