Preston Guild City

Housing

Row of terrace houses, Preston

Whatever the price band, Preston has a buoyant housing market...

Whether it’s an apartment, period property or new-build development you have in mind, Preston has a competitive housing market both in and outside of the city centre.

City centre living

If it's city centre living you crave, there are a variety of homes close to central bars, restaurants and entertainment venues. These homes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, be it a modern apartment or a period property. What's more, a city centre pad doesn't necessarily mean an urban setting, there's all kinds of homes in close proximity to wonderful amenities and parks such as Avenham & Miller Parks. These attractive settings are one of the many selling points of Preston and its housing market. With the Guild Wheel also easily accessible from the city centre, it's just one of the many ways of getting around the city without the need to rely on a car.

Suburban and rural living

If you prefer the idea of a more suburban or rural setting, there's many picturesque areas offering new build and period builds. Even in the most peaceful areas, you're never too far from the city centre and experiences such as shopping, restaurants, heritage sites and many other things to do.

Preston's extensive public transport links, coupled with neighbouring towns and cities, means all the city has to offer is easily accessible for recreation, commuting and days out further afield. You'll also never be too far from nature with the vast number of Preston parks and gardens. All these benefits, and more, make Preston the ideal place to take up residence.
