Rent to Buy is a government scheme designed to ease the transition from renting to buying a home by providing subsidised rent.
Named after Anthony Burgess' famous novel, the Clockworks is a new development nestled in Moss Side, the exact area where the writer grew up. Close to Manchester’s city centre, the residential complex has everything needed in your day-to-day life within easy reach while also providing a way to escape the buzzing streets of the city and enjoy a relaxed trip to Fallowfield and Didsbury’s bars and restaurants.
There is no need to endure a long drive to reach a peaceful place full of greenery as there are plenty of those within walking distance. Right on the doorstep lies Mosside Park, a small leafy space, perfect for a morning jog. Meanwhile, an 8-minute walk away, Alexandra Park is spread across 60 acres, featuring a beautiful lake as well as sports and play areas. Steeped in history, the park also bustles with life, regularly hosting sporting and arts events.
Home to the Clockworks, Princess Road acts as a gateway to the city centre as well as a quick way to reach Manchester Airport. In addition, the road provides regular bus services that help you travel around the city without any hassle.
The Clockworks is a 5-storey, L-shaped building, stretched along Princess Road. The façade features traditional red brickwork, which encapsulates Manchester’s image perfectly. The exterior is generously peppered with full-height windows and Juliet balconies with straight-line railings. To add some texture to the architecture, the Clockworks is visually divided into several sections, accentuated by a darker shade of the bricks and slight recesses in the façade.
If you don’t feel like taking a walk to a nearby park, the new residential complex offers a rooftop garden, where residents are welcomed to relax and bask under the sun while soaking up beautiful views of the city. Moreover, the development has been designed with environmental concerns in mind. Thus, the Clockworks is equipped with solar panels to contribute to electricity consumption. Furthermore, at the rear of the building, you can find charging points for electric cars.
The Clockworks delivers a premium collection of 105 two-bedroom apartments. Each unit boasts high-quality bathrooms and kitchens, alongside spacious rooms. For maximum comfort and convenience, all bedrooms are equipped with en-suites, adding that luxurious feel. Meanwhile, the kitchens come with an oven, a hob, and a fridge/freezer. In addition, the large windows flood the living areas with ample sunlight.
One Manchester is the property development company behind the Clockworks. The company was established as a result of the merger between City South and Eastlands Homes in April 2015. One Manchester aims to deliver safe, secure, warm, and affordable homes of the highest quality to improve people’s lives and enhance the community. With a vast portfolio of projects, the company’s list of developments includes Atlas Place, East Vale, and Crossley Grange, to name just a few.
