High life, without the high-rise
House is Urban Splash’s innovative range of modular build homes, and Mansion House are the first apartments in the range.
Mansion House might look incredibly modern, but the concept is quite an old one: small groups of apartments with one shared entrance, so you can enjoy your own space without feeling completely isolated from the rest of the world. You will get to know your neighbours and have a sense of ownership over your shared spaces, like lobbies, hallways and landings.
We’re called Urban Splash for a reason, so every Mansion House will be located in a town or city, with everything that urban living has to offer right on your doorstep.
Mansion House location
New Islington is one of those buzzy areas, unspoiled by commercialism, where locals love to hang out due to the area’s independent creative spirit, offering an eclectic range of food and entertainment away from the throng.
Pollen Bakery, Trove, Ancoats Coffee Co, Rudy’s Pizza and the Hope Mill Theatre are all on your doorstep.
Ten reasons to love Mansion House
Mansion House is designed by award-winning architects shedkm.
Mansion House has a range of kitchens, bathrooms and bedroom options that you can put together to suit your needs.
All the structure is in the outer walls, so you can change the internal layout around easily.
High ceilings, a dual aspect and oversized windows maximise light and space.
Mansion House is really well insulated and energy efficient.
Mansion House is smart technology ready and works with your favourite service provider.
Loads of natural light, balconies and communal gardens bring the outdoors, indoors.
The CLT panels are built in a factory meaning higher standards that are impossible to match on-site.
Mansion House uses CLT for the main structure and the finish, ideal for insulation, retaining heat in the winter and letting the building breath in the summer.
Smaller groups of apartments give you a sense of shared ownership over the communal spaces.
How Mansion House is built
Each piece of Mansion House is made to order offsite in factory conditions, then transported to site to be assembled. It means that everything is built as accurately as possible and wastage is kept to a minimum, saving time, money and reducing the impact on the environment.
Mansion House is made of Cross Laminate Timber (CLT).
The Radiata Pine is all sourced from Northern Spain, grown in sustainable forests with PEFC certification. Not only does the wood have its own passport, telling us exactly what area and year it comes from, but it’s easy to transport and quick to assemble on site.

The House family of products
You can choose how to design your House to suit your way of living, but we also produce some special editions, that are pre-specified to a design by a leading architect and bring something extra special to the House family.
Town House is our original House design and it’s a multiple award winner. It comes in two or three storeys which you can configure how you like, super open plan, cosy nooks, or anything in between. With full height windows and doors and impressively high ceilings, Town House maximises natural light and sense of space. We’ve sold out in Manchester, Salford and North Shields, but more are coming soon to New Islington and we’ve just launched at Port Loop in Birmingham, but you better be quick!
Fab House for modern living
Fab House is a special edition of House. Its innovative design is the brain child of one of the most respected minds in Modern Housing, George Clarke. Using his years of knowledge and experience, George has helped us create these unique homes for Smith’s Dock in North Shields. They benefit from the same oversized windows and high ceilings as Town House, with the added wow-factor of some bespoke additional features, such as the stunning birch ply stair.
Our Mansion Houses are small groups of apartments, each with one shared entrance, so you can get to know your neighbours and enjoy your own space. These dual aspect apartments share the same innovative design as Town House, with oversized windows and doors, and high ceilings, so they feel spacious and are filled with natural light. Our first Mansion Houses for sale are coming soon to New Islington.
