New Islington has been a work in progress for Urban Splash since they won the bid to transform the area in 2000.

To say it was run down would be an understatement. It was the kind of place taxi drivers refuse to go.

Fast forward twenty years and today it’s one of Manchester’s coolest communities. But don’t just take our word for it. The Sunday Times has called it one of the UK’s ten best places to live –  and it’s just a stone’s throw from Ancoats and Piccadilly. 

If you fancy living in Manchester city centre but don’t want to rent, the time to buy is now, with some of the homes at New Islington now available via Help to Buy – meaning you’ll need just a 5% deposit.

Buy a Town House in New Islington

The homes on offer are created by the House by Urban Splash business, which uses modern methods of construction (MMC) to create contemporary homes with a range of options and layouts – including some customisable homes which allow buyers to completely design their own home. 

All of the houses are created offsite in a factory before being delivered to New Islington. The first 43 homes created in this way sold out and were fully occupied within a year, so now Urban Splash are back and they’re building 17 beautiful new three- and four-bedroom homes overlooking the canal.

Each 1,500 sq ft house is spread over three light-filled floors which have been designed to suit the way you want to live. Each house comes with car parking, a private terrace and  communal residents’ gardens where you can relax or have a kick about. 

Interested? A representative from Urban Splash and an independent financial advisor will be available to help guide you through the Help to Buy process, navigate the mortgage market, advise you on borrowing and affordability and show you round a stunning show home at New Islington Marina on Thursday 6th February 2020 from 4pm – 8pm.
