A prime Manchester city centre penthouse flat is to be sold at online auction this week – a property first. 

The two bedroom duplex apartment in the Century Building, St Mary’s Parsonage, is up for grabs with a guide price of £475,000 – a saving of more than a quarter of a million pounds on similar properties within the stunning listed building.

The flat will go under the ‘virtual hammer’ in the auction – hosted by Manchester’s Landwood Property Auctions – on Wednesday between 11am and midday. It’s the first time that a residential property of this type – and price – has been sold online without an ‘in the room’ auction also taking place.

The property is a two bedroom, three bathroom duplex, with a private paved terrace and views over the River Irwell and comes with a host of lifestyle add-ons, including 24-hour concierge service, valet parking and video entry.

The location in the city centre is minutes from Spinningfields and Deansgate in a beautiful red brick and terracotta Victorian building originally constructed for the National Boiler and Generator Insurance Company in 1905.

There are 121 apartments in the building with the block winning a commendation for Best Renovation at the 2005 Housing Design Awards.

Kate Lay, director at Landwood Property Auctions, says: “This is one of the most desirable spots in Manchester city centre and these kind of properties just don’t come up at this price – it’s a real one-off.

For more information or to register an interest in the online auction, visit www.landwoodpropertyauctions.com before Wednesday 3rd July.
