THE PAYNE & THE PLEASURE Payne Mews is an exciting courtyard development of 2 x two bedroom cottages, a two bedroom first floor apartment and a unique one bedroom cottage. Dating back to the nineteenth century and of late Victorian provenance the buildings principally were know as Payne's Butchers, a family business who traded late into the 20th century. The buildings behind the shop were the dwelling place for the owners and outbuildings connected to the business.
In 2002 the buildings, other than the shop, were converted to residential usage and the whole site was acquired in 2018 and has undergone a dramatic refurbishment programme.
So, through the gated entrance, cobbled yard and communal outdoor space you will find the character of yesteryear with vaulted ceilings, original beams allied to contemporary style with glass sided staircases in the houses, new gas central heating systems, state of the art Pronorm kitchens; German technical excellence and integrated with high end appliances.
The outcome is a dynamic addition to the village lifestyle. The area, voted by The Sunday Times as the third best place to live in the North West, has so much to offer and being in the centre of the village means all your shopping and social needs are on the doorstep. Bus stops and the Metrolink are within easy walking distance and the motorway, Manchester International airport and main line train station are also easily accessed.
The combination of the old world and modern creature comforts along with vacant possession makes them one of this years most exciting additions to the market place.
