Characterful City Centre Loft Apartment

A Grade 2 listed building, Chorlton Mill is one of the oldest surviving fire proof cotton mills in city centre Manchester and is home to just 90 loft apartments in a fantastically convenient location close to Oxford Road and the University.

This magnificent example of industrial architecture retains much of its originality. Beautiful vaulted brick ceilings, cast iron columns, large, custom made double glazed timber windows & solid maple wood floors, give the building authenticity and a true feeling of loft living.

Whilst investors will always be driven by price per square foot and rental return, true buyers, owner occupiers, are more discerning than that. They appreciate that the price you pay will be influenced by many other factors including desirability, character and supply of comparable properties.

Purchasers know they can buy a flat in town in a faceless, purpose built development with an average specification, for less than £200 per square foot and for those buyers starting out who want to leave home and live in the city, the characterless purpose built developments certainly have their appeal, but more often than not the appeal is driven by price and affordability that will enable them to get out from under mum and dad’s roof.

However the second or third time buyer or the couple joining forces to buy and share their first home ownership experience together, will often set out a wish list that includes character as well as convenience and they will also want to try and buy in a development which has a higher proportion of owner occupiers than normal, as that means there is often more care taken by the residents of their development.

This is a fourth floor apartment with views over the landscaped gardens and the nearly 900 square feet of accommodation comprises: entrance hallway, large bright living room, integrated kitchen, two double bedrooms and bathroom suite.
