We are delighted to offer the opportunity to purchase a unique property in a former cardboard factory where the ground rent is `one cardboard box (if demanded)`. As the first scheme in Manchester to sell `shell space` and provide the opportunity for the owners to become the designers (with the help of an architect), this 1920`s Art Deco warehouse offers bespoke city centre living in the heart of Castlefield. Occupying a prominent position on the banks of the River Irwell, this award winning development offers innovation at its very heart and continues to attract interest in a diverse property market.

The development benefits from a secure communal entrance, lift service to all floors and a well maintained canal side communal garden with picnic benches and table tennis table for the sporting enthusiast.

Property briefly comprises: entrance/hallway; primary bedroom with access to Jack and Jill bathroom with roll top bath, separate shower cubicle and twin sinks; walk in wardrobe/dressing room; second double bedroom/study with access to additional en suite bathroom; open plan lounge/diner with access to balcony; kitchen with integrated appliances.

The property is currently tenanted until 21st December 2024, achieving £1,400 pcm on a fully furnished basis. A 6 month break clause can be enforced should vacant possession be requested.

The property is sold with the use of a secure underground tandem car parking space, an additional storage unit measuring 2.5m by 2.5m, and is offered with no onward chain.
