Macclesfield Estate Agents
Meller Braggins takes pride in a long association with Macclesfield and continues to consolidate and augment its position as the town’s leading independent Macclesfield estate agents, offering a wide range of professional services to this dynamic community.
The Macclesfield area boasts many splendid buildings together with a diverse range of housing – from loft apartments in Victorian Mills, terraced cottages and modern “executive” homes – to farms, country mansions and estates.
The town has also successfully retained its independence from the south Manchester commuter belt and has evolved over the last couple of decades as the prominent centre in the north Cheshire region, whilst at the same time maintaining its market town atmosphere.
Granted its charter in 1215, today Macclesfield is still surrounded by open countryside, with the lush Cheshire Plain immediately to the west of the town contrasting with the craggy splendour of the Peak District National Park to the east, the world’s second most visited National Park after Mount Fuji in Japan.
Its world renowned silk manufacturing industry has now sadly disappeared, but that proud heritage is commemorated within the town’s Silk Museum housed in the imposing Heritage Centre. Silk manufacture has been replaced by a vibrant and varied light industrial economy with some of the most prestigious names in pharmaceutical research and manufacturing represented locally, along with many other enterprises.
Macclesfield is particularly well located for commuters. It is within easy travelling distance of Manchester city centre by both road and rail and there are direct inter city services bringing London within just over two hours travelling time and providing ready access to Scotland and the south coast. Manchester’s thriving and ever expanding International Airport is approximately 30 minutes away by road.
