Summers Quay

Canal-side living at Summers Quay is New Charter Homes’ (part of Jigsaw Homes Group) first build-to-rent development of 67, one and two-bed apartments and penthouses available for private rent.

Named after Ada Summers – the town’s first female councillor and first British woman to sit as a magistrate and Justice of the Peace – it boasts views of Manchester and the Peak District National Park.

It will also play an important part in the regeneration of Stalybridge, backed by the Greater Manchester Mayor’s new Town Centre Challenge.

Contemporary open-plan designs will be at the heart of the apartments and feature modern kitchens with integrated ovens, hobs, fridge-freezers, and washing machines.

Residents will be able to enjoy ground-level access to shops, leisure facilities and Armentieres Square, as well as self-contained on-site parking and bicycle storage facilities.

The development will be one of the best connected residential schemes in the country with ultra-fast internet as part of Tameside’s new fibre network.
