Trencherfield Mill Doors are Open

This weekend, Trencherfield Mill will be opening its doors to show the lifestyle on offer at this stylish and historic development. The Stewart Milne Homes HomeBuy Direct event from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday 13th March, will not only showcase the superb apartments, but will also give details of how the Government’s HomeBuy Direct initiative can make life in Trencherfield Mill an affordable reality for buyers.

Online PR News – 09-March-2010 – – HomeBuy Direct allows buyers to purchase a stunning two-bed apartment with a 30 per cent deferred payment plan. With this plan, buyers not only benefit from a mortgage for only 70 per cent of the property price, which significantly reduces monthly payment amounts, but require just 5 per cent of this reduced portion as a deposit. On this basis, an apartment priced at ÂŁ120,000 can be purchased for ÂŁ84,000 with a deposit of just ÂŁ4,200. The outstanding sum remains interest free for five years and can be repaid either when sold or via a series of instalments. That means, someone could own their own 2 bedroom home for less than ÂŁ300 a month – probably less than a rental payment.

Comprising 52 stunning apartments, the derelict Grade II listed building of Trencherfield Mill has undergone a spectacular transformation from its humble beginnings as a working cotton mill, to its current role as iconic centrepiece of the Wigan Pier Quarter.

With its fusion of industrial history and contemporary design, Trencherfield Mill presents the perfect choice for a modern, stylish lifestyle. Properties have been creatively designed to utilise the building’s original features with impressive high ceilings, large windows, and expanses of exposed brickwork. Building on Stewart Milne Homes’ reputation of delivering quality with style, apartments also feature large, bright kitchens finished to the highest specification, with granite work surfaces and fully integrated appliances.

Providing the cherry on the cake, buyers also benefit from an exclusive 24 hour concierge service for the ultimate executive lifestyle. The service offers essential day to day support such as key holding, and parcel acceptance, plus round the clock availability to give access to workers, furniture deliveries or even dinner guests who arrive early. New buyers can also benefit from local information such as train schedules and shop opening hours, and valuable area knowledge including restaurant recommendations.
