Why move to Tunstall?

Due to Tunstall’s central location and good schools, the area tends to attract young professionals and families. The excellent transport links mean people travelling to Manchester or Birmingham can be there in an hour and just over an hour respectively. Those wishing to get to London can do so within 90 minutes on the train from Stoke’s very own station.

 

Schools

There are two excellent universities close by; The University of Keele, founded in 1949, has strong links with Sir David Attenborough who recently opened the new teaching and research laboratories in the School of Life Sciences. Not forgetting Staffordshire University, a health education specialist, whose main campus is in Stoke. The university has three other campuses; Litchfield, Stafford and Shresbury, but Stoke is known as it’s “nerve centre”.

 

History and culture

The region is of course famous for its pottery and even has The Middleport Pottery Museum dedicated to its heritage. Or if you enjoy the great outdoors, why not head to Westport Lake Visitor Centre and explore the lake and grounds. Alternatively, you may wish to visit Victoria Park which has a plaque by the main gates in celebration of local star Robbie William. The park also houses an outdoor gym, bird boxes, a play area and is a Natural Heritage site.

 

Shopping, restaurants and entertainment

There are some great shopping destinations including the Intu Potteries off Quadrant Road, Stoke. The Hive is a place you’ll want to go to if you’re in search of some great places to eat or if you fancy watching the latest releases at the cinema.

 

Local market

Investors will be keen to know that there is a good yield on rental properties in the Tunstall area as prices are generally cheaper than in the larger cities of Manchester and Birmingham. It is worth noting, the town of Middleport has seen a lot of regeneration lately and would be a location first time buyers as well as investors should consider.

The Tunstall team manage the sales of a wide variety of accommodation, from flats priced from around £50,000 to large 4 and 5 bedroom detached family homes which will set you back around £300,000. Alternatively, if you are searching for a long term rental property, anything from a flat or terraced house to a 4 bed detached, then give the branch a call or pop in today to discuss your needs.
