Hidden out of sight and away from the beating heart of Manchester city centre, lies the city`s best kept secret, St John`s Gardens. Here once stood St John`s Church, erected in 1769 by the son of a poet, Edward Byrom, it served its congregation for more than 160 years before being demolished in 1931. It was the first significant building in Manchester to be constructed in the Victorian Gothic style of architecture and the tower contained a pearl of eight bells. In 1932 the land was redeveloped to offer a formal garden which is now home to a stone cross commemorating the church. An area of tranquillity for this owner occupied community, the gardens complement Porchfield Square and neighbouring buildings.

Internally modified to address the needs of the modern day city dweller, this well preserved penthouse apartment will certainly exceed the expectations of the next owner occupier.

On entry into the hallway, you are presented with striking custom made walnut doors. To this floor you have the master bedroom with stylish fitted wardrobes, the bathroom and cloak cupboard. A fully tiled wetroom floor has been fitted with underfloor heating which can be controlled by means of an app. Suite by Porcelanosa. Stairs, modified to complement the top floor, lead to an open plan lounge/diner. The dual aspect allows natural light to fill every corner. French doors open onto the balcony with roof top city views and the well maintained communal grounds. Furnished with integrated AEG appliances including induction hob and full-size dishwasher, the Corian work top is the kitchens centre piece and complemented by a seamless glass splash back. Sleek, practical and efficient, it will certainly pique the interest of a culinary genius. The second double bedroom has been converted into a `work from home` space. HIVE controls the gas central heating. Kahrs ash engineered wood flooring throughout.

The Valliant boiler is within warranty and is located out of sight above the kitchen ceiling - accessed via a hatch.

For additional storage. the property benefits from a private internal storage room located on the ground floor, or there is always the garage. Fitted with an electric Hormann garage door, it has a convenient utility section which would house the washing machine.

Additional parking is available on the forecourt in front of the garage. For visitors, you are allocated two permits.

A rare opporunity, this property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
