Flats for sale in Manchester: Two-bed apartment in Northern Quarter’s famous old Victorian department store

This is flat in one of the most recognisable buildings in Manchester's Northern Quarter is on the market now.

This two-bedroom apartment within one of the most recognisable historic buildings in Manchester’s Northern Quarter is on the market now for £315,000. 

The flat has been listed by Thornley Groves via Rightmove. The Smithfield Building on Tib Street was converted into flats in 1996, but it started out life as the Affleck & Brown department store, which opened in the 1860s initially as a drapery shop. This is one of the most vibrant areas of the city centre and one of the most well known period conversions in Manchester. 

It includes original features, like exposed brick and original beams, steel and floors. One of the 1,000 sq ft-apartment’s most appealing features is the double height ceiling, which lets in plenty of the light to the main living area. 

There are two bedrooms –  a master bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite, and a separate bedroom on the first floor mezzanine overlooking the living area. The kitchen has also only recently been installed.
