Outside space has always been a sought-after commodity, whether it’s acres of land or a balcony with pleasant views.

Marketed by Philip James Kennedy is this newly refurbished, one bedroom apartment which forms part of a grand period conversion on Central Road.

Central Road is quite literally around the corner from Burton Road Metrolink and the vibrant village of West Didsbury which is always very popular with young professionals.
