    01 June 2021
    A 7 minute read by Alice Irving

    From five-year lease options to space, light, and the exciting city living lifestyle that comes with the home.

    Manchester’s New Islington neighbourhood is home to Mansion House, our modern European-inspired, waterside apartment building.

    Now completely sold out, buyers are out of luck – but renters have a big opportunity on their hands.

    There are currently a number of Mansion House apartments available to let in the New Islington neighbourhood.

    So, here are 15 reasons why you should make one of these city centre canal-side apartments, your next home.

    Mansion House apartments in New Islington

    01 — You want a beautiful, design-led home

    Mansion House dual-aspect apartments are modern, mindfully designed and inspired by European mid-rise apartments buildings.

    They’re beautiful to look from inside and out with features including exposed timber walls and ceilings, open-plan living space, and a contemporary kitchen.

    02 — You value space and light

    Huge windows? Got them. High ceilings? Got them too.

    Your large 71 sq m (764 sq ft) home will feel spacious and flooded with mood-boosting natural light from front and back.

    Mansion House apartments can be rented furnished or unfurnished

    03 — Furnished or unfurnished – you can choose

    Whether you require a furnished or unfurnished home – this range of rentals has you covered.

    Unfurnished apartments are available from £1500-£1650 pcm and furnished apartments are available from £1650-£1800 pcm.

    04 — Up to five-year leases with break clauses are available

    You can have up to five-year tenancies with the flexibility of break clauses – just for peace of mind.

    This gives you the added security of knowing what to expect with your rent within that five-year time frame regardless of market conditions.

    All Mansion House apartments come with private balconies

    05 — You want a waterside balcony

    Your apartment also comes with an 8 sq m balcony overlooking the marina too.

    So, in the warmer months you can enjoy a glass of wine with a view.

    (Of course, you can enjoy your balcony in the colder months too – just put your big coat on).

    06 — You want uninterrupted marina views

    Even though you’re bang in the city centre, your new home will be surrounded by plenty of green and blue spaces.

    This means you can look out of your window every day and enjoy uninterrupted views of New Islington’s glistening marina. Think colourful barges floating on the water alongside swans, ducks and geese.

    (Don’t worry, blinds have also been installed so you can enjoy Netflix movie marathons in the dark).
