Salford Quays: South Bank of the North
Tipped to be the “South Bank of the North”, Salford Quays has already undergone extensive regeneration making it a most attractive and enticing area to live. Over 10 years (2001-2011, Census) the population has grown by 17,800, driven by the booming local economy led by MediaCityUK, home of the BBC and numerous other cultural enterprises.
Along with the young professionals calling Salford Quays home, increasingly families are moving into the area, keen to enjoy the relaxed waterside living, museums, cafes and restaurants. The area’s rising population has also had a direct impact on housing stock, with the Greater Manchester council stating that up to 10,000 new homes are required while less than half are actually being built.
Family-friendly spacious mews homes from £177,000
Families now comprise 30% (and growing) of the private rented sector, presenting a lucrative opportunity for savvy landlords. Family-friendly properties on Salford Quays are rare but now this new release of mews homes at Custom Quay will meet this demand.
Designed with families in mind, the spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom mews homes boast their own private entrances and two parking spaces as well as large windows and skylights to maximise natural light. Mews homes residents will also be able to enjoy the landscaped courtyard and communal rooftop terrace with superb views over the quays. The tram stop is just 150m away, enabling access to Manchester city centre in under 15 minutes.
