Properties on St John Street – the city centre’s only intact Georgian row – are being restored back into magnificent family homes.
Gary Neville’s development company has acquired four on the odd-numbered side of the street and we are very proud to bring the first to market.
No21 is a stunning house and raises the bar for quality and sophistication – and the sheer scale – of the accommodation it offers.
It is available to rent for £20,000 a month and we already have interest.

St John Street with its mature trees is probably the most handsome street in the city. It is just off Deansgate and it ends in a lovely well cared for park.
Until recently the vast properties had been used as consulting rooms but the Its transformation began about three years ago with the conversion of offices at No2 St John St with the junction of Deansgate, into ten really high specification apartments. We brought them to market in 2020 and achieved some of the best prices so far in the city topping £1m for one of the duplex penthouses.
During the conversion the developer, Kingsdean, acquired No15 on the opposite side of the street. We introduced a private client and it was renovated and restored into a substantial family home.
Since then all of the properties on the left-hand side of the street have been acquired and are in the process of being converted back into really high-quality homes.
With many companies making a move out of London we expect to see demand for this level of property from CEO’s who want a base in the city. Or high net worth individuals who like the idea of a substantial home minutes from the heart of things but on a quiet tree lined street. And the option to rent gives that flexibility that many people want right now or require if they are moving to a new city and need to set up home quickly. Opportunities like this are rare.
And trend for conversion at St Johns continues with the first of the 11 properties on the right-hand side of the street – which are substantially larger – now being marketed for sale.
Having this critical mass of high quality property in the same location means St John Street is now fast becoming the premier residential address in Manchester. Something The Sunday Times picked up on with a feature in its high profile Homes section:
