There have been some seriously impressive properties sold across our region in 2021, from multi-million pound modern mansions to converted barns in the countryside.
We’ve pulled together the most expensive homes to be sold in each one of Greater Manchester’s boroughs in the last 12 months, according to Land Registry data.
As tends to be the case, the borough that dominates the more expensive end of the data is Trafford, where wealthy suburbs like Hale and Bowden are stuffed with giant luxury homes.
Stockport also has a lot of homes in the top end of the list, with Bramhall’s prestigious property market seeing homes averaging around half a million pounds.
The list across all 10 boroughs ranges from a £690,000 house with amazing views to a mansion owned by a very famous resident indeed.
Which one would you fancy living in? Let us know in the comments on Facebook.
Bloomesbury Avenue, Didsbury – £1,850,000
Of course it’s a Didsbury home that tops the list for Manchester’s most expensive home sold in 2021.
The Land Registry has reported that this pad on Bloomesbury Road sold for £1.85m back at the start of the year.
It’s on the land that used to be home to the University of Manchester Didsbury campus, now turned into a neighbourhood of converted properties and ‘superhomes’.
Manor Road, Bramhall – £1,895,000
This four-bedroom pile is the most expensive home sold in Stockport in 2021, fetching just shy of £1.9m.
Its south-facing garden looks over the golf course and comes with a huge patio and sunken seating area, as well as its own games room.
The whole thing was renovated in 2017, so it’s bang up to date.
Hill Top, Hale – £5,000,000
What a pad this is.
This 10,000 sq ft home in leafy Hale, right on the Cheshire border, sold for £5m back in April.
Spread out over four floors, it has six bedrooms, an indoor pool, a gym, and a media room – you can see more photos at calderpeel.com.
Chatsworth Road, Worsley – £2,700,000
This Salford mansion had a very famous owner, former Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, reports The Mirror.
It was originally listed at £3.5m but eventually sold for £2.7m in July.
The massive house has its own cinema and gym, as well as five enormous bedrooms.
Regent Road, Lostock – £1,475,000
This house in Bolton is once again right on the edge of a golf course.
It’s got five bedrooms, six reception rooms, a cinema room and a swim/spa.
When can we move in…?
Redisher Lane, Hawkshaw – £1,300,000
This home in Hawkshaw, a village on the outskirts of Bury, is packed with character.
It’s got five bedrooms and four reception rooms and sold for £1.3m this year.
The big selling point has to be the surroundings though – it’s surrounded on all sides by rolling hills. Lovely.
Sennicar Lane, Wigan – £1,170,000
You definitely get a lot of house for your money over in Wigan.
This home is set in eight acres of land, with panoramic country views, four double bedrooms, and three reception rooms.
The massive converted barn fetched £1.17m when it was sold in 2021.
Norden Road, Bamford – £1,150,000
This sprawling property is in the village of Bamford, in Rochdale.
With four bedrooms, four reception rooms, and a three-car garage, it’s absolutely massive.
It sold for £1.15m this year – last time it was on the market, back in 2006, it fetched £910,000.
Oaklands Road, Grasscroft – £960,000
This house was only built in 2007, but its value has skyrocketed since, selling this year for almost £1m.
It’s spread out over three floors and comes with SIX bedrooms.
Mottram Old Road, Stalybridge – £690,000
Of all the pricey properties on this list, Tameside had the cheapest – but at a cool £690,000, it’s not exactly cheap.
It’s the views again that sell it, with bi-fold doors on the ground floor and balconies upstairs that look over the rolling hills that surround Stalybridge.
This house sold for £500,000 just two years ago – quite a jump in price.
