New Phase Released
A collection of new homes situated on the northern edge of St. Helens, close to open farmland yet less than a mile and a half from the bustling town centre, this attractive development brings high quality contemporary houses and apartments into a pleasant and peaceful neighbourhood. Less than half a mile from the A580, these homes also provide an excellent base for travel throughout the North West.
With a good choice of pubs and restaurants nearby, and the busy town centre offering a wider choice, the development has easy access to a range of amenities for evenings out. Venues in St. Helens include a Cineworld 12-screen multiplex, the Theatre Royal with its varied programme of drama, comedy and music, and a lively selection of bars and clubs such as the exciting Chicago Rock Café with its live music, dancing, bars and restaurants.
There is a useful local shopping area in Greenfield Road, just five minutes from the development, which includes a Tesco supermarket, a greengrocer, a chemist and a post office. There is also a Co-op convenience store in nearby Millbrook Lane.
There is a choice of primary schools within half a mile of the development and the local secondary school, Cowley Language College, a community school with an outstanding choice of extra-curricular activities, is less than 500 yards away.
The wide selection of GPs and medical facilities within a 15 minute walk of the development include health centres in Atherton Street towards the town centre and Broadway to the west, where there is also a dental surgery.
Sport and leisure
The development is just a few minutes walk from the comprehensive Ruskin Leisure Centre, where the floodlit grass and synthetic outdoor pitches are complemented by modern changing facilities, function and games rooms, a health and fitness suite incorporating a swimming pool, a fully air-conditioned 50-station gym, saunas, spa, a steam room and an aerobics studio. There is a second swimming pool and leisure centre nearby at Queens Park, and a third in Ashcroft Street in the town centre, both within a few minutes walk of the development. And a little to the north of the A580, around a mile from the development, the prestigious new North West National Golf and Country Club is nearing completion.
Around quarter of a mile from open farmland, the development is also in easy reach of recreational areas such as Queens Park and Victoria Park, both of which have children's play areas, and there is also a small lake in Victoria Park. Sankey Valley Park, around three miles to the west, is a seven-mile long linear park with a network of footpaths and cycle trails. A recognised site of Special Scientific Interest incorporating a visitor centre and a nature reserve at Stanley Bank, Sankey Valley Park offers endless scope for exploration. And, for more exotic wildlife, the vast Knowsley Safari Park is just around three miles to the east.
Just yards from the A580, Scholar's Way has easy access to the M57 and M6 motorways, and both Liverpool and Manchester are within easy commuting range either by road or by rail from St. Helens station, less than a mile and a half away. Rainford Road, adjacent to the development, is on a number of local bus routes into the town centre and around the area, and John Lennon Airport is less than ten miles away.
