Covering Didsbury & Chorlton, Trafford Surveyors is an independent firm of qualified local Chartered Surveyors and Energy Assessors committed to giving their clients an excellent and diverse service. Didsbury is a suburban area of Manchester, England. It lies on the north bank of the River Mersey and 4.5 miles south of Manchester city centre. It is easily one of the most sought-after places to live in Manchester.
Didsbury was originally a Saxon fort. Although it is so close to the city centre the area retains a village community identity. Didsbury is split into three districts, West Didsbury, Didsbury Village and East Didsbury. West Didsbury is fiercely independent, dominated by The Metropolitan Pub and a plethora of small but credible restaurants. Didsbury Village is the most sought-after area of the three, with a bustling village centre that boasts top-end chains like Café Rouge and Pitcher and Piano, boutique hotels, delis and a large M&S supermarket.
East Didsbury is best known for its sedate, tree-lined streets and excellent schools. What the three areas have in common is an affluent community. Didsbury is made for people with money, though it doesn’t shout about it. The rental and property markets reflect this, and prices are consistently higher than in the areas around. Properties range from stylish new-builds to sprawling Victorian houses, many of which are set in conservation areas. One-bedroom flats cost around £140,000, with four-bedroom properties selling currently for a cool half a million pounds.
