Bricks & Mortar

When The Times newspaper got in touch asking if we knew of any homes for sale close to football grounds we pitched the perfect property.

No1 Old Trafford is aptly named as it stands within walking distance of the world famous ground and the location is attracting football fans like Richard Overton.

He told the Bricks & Mortar property section: “My family are all Manchester United fans and I’ve been a United fan for as long as I can remember I’ve followed United abroad too, including seeing them win the Europa League in 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden.

“As a child my Dad took me to games where we would meet my uncle. Funnily enough our meeting spot before matches was by the chain statues, where No1 Old Trafford has been built. It’s nice to see the statues are still there on either side of the building as a reminder.

“I grew up in Royton, on the opposite side of Manchester. But I’ve always gone to games and love the surrounding area, so much so that I moved to Salford Quays around eight years ago. I didn’t think I’d be able to live much closer to the stadium than I already do, but when I saw No1 Old Trafford was being built I had to go and see what it was like. The build quality is excellent, and the views are stunning. The view from the roof terrace is incredible and I think I’ll be spending most of my time up there once I move in!”

The first of the 354 apartments are due to complete this summer so Richard should be settled in before next season kicks off.

We have two bedroom apartments available in No1 Old Trafford starting at £259,500.

Developed by Cole Waterhouse the apartments sit in two towers linked by landscaped communal gardens and residents can also enjoy ground floor lounge space to work or meet friends. The new Wharfside tram stop allows a quick commute to either Manchester City Centre or Salford Quays which is home to the BBC and ITV.
