Property Pick of the Week 07/10/2020

The Sorting Office, Preston – Greater Manchester

This 2 bedroom duplex unit in Preston is a real gem. The development is completed and ready to generate income right away.

Preston is the third largest city in the North West, and the largest in its county of Lancashire, following the award of city status in 2003. This is a confident, welcoming city which is friendly to business and regularly performs well in PricewaterhouseCooper’s Good Growth for Cities Index which analyses jobs, transport, average incomes and work-life balance among other things.

While Preston is in itself a fantastic place to work, the proximity to other amazing employment locations in the North of England is a huge reason to consider living in the area as well as offering the ability to be at the Lake District in less than an hour by train.

Preston is in a fantastic location when it comes to the UK as a whole. On the line from Glasgow/Edinburgh right the way through to London, the modern trains of today can have you in London or Edinburgh in just over 2 hours. Manchester is a 50-minute train journey away, making Preston a commutable distance away. 


Development Information

The development will bring to the market luxury living, providing its owners with modern top of the range amenities, including high end fixtures and fittings, bespoke designer kitchens, fob access technology, SMART heating systems and private garden balconies or terraces. Each apartment will also benefit from its own, private and secure car parking space.

The Sorting Office is perfectly located in the thriving City of Preston and will boast the City’s first communal rooftop garden for the exclusive use of its residents.
