WHEN looking at where to raise a family, having good schools close by is usually top of the list.


Securing a place for children at a first choice of school can sometimes be a postcode lottery and, according to research by Santander*, one in four parents of school-age children buy or rent a property close to preferred schools to boost their chances of a space.


“Being home to nine primary and secondary schools, Hartford is an ideal location for families to live,” says Jason Newton, sales director at Redrow Homes (North West).


“Hartford High School, St Nicholas High School and The Grange are three of the sought-after high schools in the area, with primary schools such as Hartford Primary School being Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’.”


Homes at Hartford Grange are perfect for larger families with a number of five-bedroom homes available including the Buckingham, Marlborough and Sandringham. The generously sized homes offer plenty of space for families to be independent whilst also providing areas perfect for special family time.


The Buckingham is finished to the highest specification and includes a separate lounge, designated family area and a study, as well as a large open plan kitchen and dining room. Upstairs, three out of the five bedrooms come with their own en-suite and the master also has its own dressing room. This home is priced at £764,995.


The Marlborough is a home of real substance. Its lounge, snug and spacious kitchen/dining area mean it has something to suit every single member of the family. Two out of the five bedrooms come with en-suite and, if not all bedrooms are needed, one could easily be transformed into a study.


Hartford Grange is within walking distance of restaurants and local independent shops, as well as being well connected to the cities of Liverpool, Birmingham and even London from nearby Hartford Station.  Green Bank Station, also close by, serves  Chester and Manchester.


The closest town to Hartford Grange is Northwich, a riverside market town that is home to all the usual amenities you would expect including a Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.


Hartford Grange has also picked up a Best Residential Development Award for Cheshire in the 2019 UK Property Awards.
