The Glory of Murrays’ Mills

If anything tells the story of Manchester’s industrial ambition and heritage it is Murrays’ Mills – the oldest steam powered cotton mill complex in the world.

This series of three buildings – Old, Decker and New Mill – are connected by linking wings that together form a large central courtyard where the three-storey engine house and chimney still stand.

This wonderful industrial legacy was rescued and sympathetically converted to residential by the developer Manchester Life, to provide some of the most characterful homes in the city with timber flooring, exposed steel and brick and soaring room heights.

We were appointed to sell all the 124 apartments back in 2017/18 and fell in love with the buildings and the very special homes that had been created.

Three years on and some of the original apartments are now coming up for resale. We get very excited about going back to Murrays’ and catching up with previous clients and the scheme just seems to get better and better. Walking through the archway into the hidden landscaped courtyard is a real treat.

And because we know the buildings so well and are so passionate about them we are in the best position to advise sellers on price and marketing and how to achieve the sale they need.

We have successfully re-sold nine apartments, agreeing an offer on the latest one just last week.

A new instruction at Murrays’ is always welcome and if you currently live there and are considering a move or if you would love to make it your home then please get in touch with for a chat.

To get some idea of the splendour of the homes at Murrays’ take a look at The Engine House, once the beating heart of the complex and now a stunning town house offering both contemporary fit-out and character.
