Despite the number of people who own pooches in town, there aren’t that many dog-friendly places to live close to Manchester city centre.
But that’s about to change. If you want to live close to the city centre in one of Manchester’s coolest neighbourhoods and you want your four-legged friend to be welcome there, Urban Splash’s Mansion House development in New Islington could be right up your street.
And you can enjoy a guided tour of the apartments at Mansion House without leaving home, thanks to a new, virtual viewing platform.
“It’s a really cool piece of software,” said sales manager Toby Brown. “The viewings show every facet of Mansion House; the high ceilings, dual aspect and oversized windows and balconies – all of which will give customers uninterrupted views across New Islington Marina and Cotton Field Park.
“Mansion House – and New Islington itself – is all about community, ideal for those wanting to put down roots and purchase their very own home in Manchester, while enjoying a fantastic space and views over the city’s newest and coolest neighbourhood. It was important that we ensured each customer can bring their whole family along.”
Designed by award-winning architects Shedkm and built using sustainable materials and innovative construction techniques, Mansion House is a very modern offering within an age-old concept; small groups of apartments with one shared entrance enabling residents to enjoy their own space without feeling secluded.
And now, thanks to the launch of its new virtual viewings platform, your furry friend can look around each Mansion House apartment from the comfort of your current home, with guided tours for owners and pets alike.
The pet-friendly approach comes after the House by Urban Splash team gauged the opinion of prospective Mansion House customers to ascertain exactly what they wanted from the New Islington neighbourhood.
“We undertook some research back in January and it became evident that the demographic of New Islington buyers really wanted their pets with them,” said Toby. “There’s a lot of green space, waterside spaces and pet-friendly amenities, so we decided we wanted to be a part of that too.
“Lockdown restrictions have confirmed just how important companionship is, so we’re looking forward to welcoming residents – both human and furry – when Mansion House completes.”
