We checked the information and the developer's representatives confirmed that units in this residential complex can be purchased by using a mortgage.
Rent to Buy is a government scheme designed to ease the transition from renting to buying a home by providing subsidised rent.
The new residential complex is nestled in the Trinity area of Salford, Greater Manchester. Perched on Blackfriars Road, Artifex puts its residents within walking distance of Manchester City Centre with a wide range of world-class amenities and attractions. In recent years, Salford has received impressive numbers of investments, resulting in the growth of residential, commercial, and office properties as well as the restoration of historic buildings to preserve the area’s unique heritage. Thanks to Salford University, the city has accumulated a large student population that alongside MediaCityUK has boosted the area’s economy.
To get a reprieve from the buzzing streets of the city, residents of Artifex can take a long promenade along the River Irwell that slices through the area and leads to the bustling centre. However, if you head in the opposite direction, you will arrive at a collection of charming green spaces, including Peel Park, a large beautifully landscaped area with a playground and sports pitches, coupled with the Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
One of the main draws to Salford is its travel connections. Artifex is placed within a 10-minute walk of Salford Central Railway Station, while Manchester Victoria is only 17 minutes away. Furthermore, residents of the new development benefit from easy access to Metrolink services with an array of tram stops located within strolling distance.
Artifex is a mid-rise development that features a contemporary-style exterior with a nod to the past. Blending in perfectly with the rest of the neighbourhood, the sleek façade is clad in small panels reminiscent of traditional red and grey brickwork that can be often found throughout Manchester. The building is generously peppered with large windows of different shapes that flood the living areas with an abundance of natural light and provide beautiful views of the city.
The new residential complex has been designed with residents’ comfort in mind. To provide a private place for recharging and relaxing, Artifex includes shared landscaped garden areas with a convenient planting space for those who are into gardening. Aware of the environmental agenda, the new development features solar panels and bike stores. Further benefits include communal rooms for providing some extra space and a camera door entry system to grant peace of mind.
Artifex is home to a total of 108 one- and two-bedroom apartments. The contemporary-style units offer stylish rooms and stunning views of the city centre. Each apartment comes with a modern kitchen, fitted with white gloss units, Quebec oak worktops, and a selection of Zanussi appliances, including a single fan oven, a 4-ring hob, and a stainless-steel chimney hood. Furthermore, the main bathrooms feature a white three-piece suite with a bath and an overhead shower, while the en-suites include a walk-in shower instead.
