Manchester was, without challenge, the first and greatest industrial city in the world and the Rochdale Canal was at the heart of what was once the industrial part of Manchester. The Mill is one of the developments which have now been converted into modern accommodation. As well as Manchester Citys home ground and the National Cycling Centre, there is a doctors surgery located within the building itself. If you dont feel like walking or cycling along the canal and park, which is still a wildlife sanctuary, to the Northern Quarter, home to a host of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and nightclubs, there are a number of buses on the Oldham road which can take you there and to the city centre.
In our opinion this is an ideal property for a young professional or even a couple looking to get a foot on the property ladder in Manchester. There are also great investment opportunities with significant yield and capital growth opportunities. Major developments are taking place in the area which is expected to flourish in the near future. Victoria Mills has been converted into smart apartments which offer all the benefits of modern city living but, as ever, wed urge potential buyers to arrange a viewing to see them for themselves.
