Oakwood: Romiley’s New Beauty Spot


Oakwood: Romiley’s New Beauty Spot

Romiley, located on the outskirts of Manchester and Stockport, is an area where people can perfectly situate themselves between the bustling city life and the glorious gateway into the Peak District. Oakwood Hall is just one of the magnificent luxury homes for sale in Manchester UK.

With its access to both, it has become a prime area for housing development to please both city-dwellers and country folk alike, which made it a perfect space for Virtu Homes to undertake new build developments on a bespoke courtyard housing project surrounding the existing Oakwood Hall.

The Venue

Originally constructed in 1845, Oakwood Hall has an illustrious and prestigious history which made it perfect for those longing to live in a historic and spectacular building.

Undertaking careful restoration, the hall was converted into 8 contemporary luxury apartments which provided buyers the fortune of living in a listed building with fantastic views of the countryside. Surrounding the hall provided the opportunity to further develop a courtyard consisting of 11 3-4 bedroom character homes that complimented the Hall with a modern feel in a classic surrounding.

The Design

By taking in the rural surroundings of the development space, the team at Virtu Homes comprehensively researched and designed the apartments and houses to reflect the needs of the people who like the quiet countryside but desire the best in up to date living requirements a city housing project would expect.

By providing hardwood floors we were able to capture the natural feel of the area along with traditional style cornices and white satin woodwork, whilst bringing the lighting to a more modern design and TV, telephone and WiFi points present throughout all major living areas.

Modern kitchen demands were implemented by incorporating a shaker style design with chrome finishes, with choices of tile or wooden flooring depending on the preference of the owner. This was also complemented by the best in modern kitchen fixed appliances such as built-in branded fan ovens, electric hobs and stainless steel extractor hoods.

Bathrooms were brought into the 21st century by implementing soft close toilet fixtures and push-button plungers throughout the fully tiled bathrooms, giving them a stylish and glossy feel instead of a dated and plain room with no character.

Top Sales

Pricing in between £250k to £475k for the apartments within the hall, the pricing set an all-time record for the Romiley area and were in such high demand that they sold out over a course of 4 weeks. Impressively, this was during the ease of national lockdown period by agent Thomas Lardner.

Due to Oakwood’s impressive design and natural surroundings, including wildlife and it’s own river complete with fishing rights, provided a perfect layout for people wanting to escape their city dwellings for something more spacious whilst giving the team at Virtu Homes a record time project for its portfolio.

Mere View


I couldn’t be any happier with the work of Virtu Homes with the supply of my husband’s and my dream house. After talks with so many other firms who could not identify the right feel for our intended home, we were completely bowled over by the professional practice in providing the home Virtu has. Minimal fuss and we moved into an incredible house with ease. Virtu Homes we strongly recommend as the go-to business for the best living.

Just genius. Everything that was provided to us by the team at Virtu Homes was 100% on the money and we are greatly satisfied with the results of our new home. We have a lot of guests usually and by taking into account our many family gatherings, they were able to provide a stylish and spacious home fit for a royal visit, let alone our own. Highly recommended.

I cannot fathom the amount of work put in by Virtu Homes over the time in securing the perfect home for my family. After the first initial meetings we are always skeptical that something would always put the spanner in the works in getting the home we wanted. Virtu Homes not only listened to everything we wanted in a home but also went far beyond with the final product. Absolutely wonderful people who have done everything we could have hoped for in providing our beautiful home.
