Property management update: New year, new homes to look after
Gateway Property Management is delighted to add a further 800 homes to its ever-expanding portfolio. What a great start to 2023 for our nationwide teams.
Repeat business includes the management of the next phase of two residential developments, both on the coast.
The first scheme is in the bustling seaside town of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire. The stylish new homes have picturesque views across the Ribble Estuary and the Irish Sea, with Blackpool just a few miles south for an array of attractions, such as the Blackpool Tower and Pleasure Beach. Not forgetting the annual, 6.2-mile-long Blackpool Illuminations!
We’ll also be taking good care of a further phase of modern homes in Axminster, Devon. This quaint market town, built on a hill overlooking the River Axe, is full of traditional charm and character, with the stunning East Devon Area of Natural Beauty all around for 100 square miles of glorious countryside.
