The development is spacious and modern. The huge windows mean you get some stunning fews of the city.

The fact that you could design your own layout means each house is unique and has it’s own feel.

The high ceiling and windows are a real conversation starter and always impresses guests.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It’s great being able to walk into town in a few minutes whilst still being able to sit out in the garden on a sunny day.

The bars/restaurants and shops are all so close and if you fancy some open space the meadow and Peel Park are only a 10 minute walk away.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

It would have been nice to have Internet connections already fully set up as it took several months to get the Internet installed.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would have air con installed as the top floor gets incredibly hot in summer.

A wonderful place to live in

The Houses at River Irwell offer a large space and good value for money. 3 storeys offer 1500 sq and 2 storeys 1000 sq. This is a very generous space for houses located nearly at the heart of the city centre. Houses are well designed and offer a lot of light thanks to the many windows. The gardens are also big for town houses. Located by the River irwell, it has some sort of countryside feel with the trees and greenery around.
RMG have been a decent management company and have also been good value for money so far. The neighbourhood has a good feel and everyone supports one another. I would highly recommend anyone to buy a house here.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The development is nicely located just off the city centre by the river Irwell. It is a shoet walk from the beautiful Peel Park. Victoria station is a short 5 minutes stroll. All facilities and amenities that offer the city centre is a short distance from the estate.
To make the area even better, it would be bice to have delis and corner shops closer to the complex. When all the developments around are completed, the area will look even nicer.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I think the houses are not as sound proof as Urban Splash states.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best features are the space, the layout of rooms, the light coming in from the windows, the back garden and the front parking space offering space for 2 cars.

A perfect house in the city!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

The homes themselves are modern open plan living, and are really good sized! We especially love the black kitchen and some of the modern touches, for example being able to control your lights and heating from your phone. I do wish there was a bit more storage designed into the property, as there is limited places to store things such as vacuum cleaners or suitcases for example! On a whole the management of the property is good. Sometimes commutation from Urban Splash can be a bit slow but issues tend to be resolved fairly quickly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It’s a great place to live! It’s a 10 minute walk to the city center, close to great road links, and pretty much any amenity you can think of is just a stones throw away! To have a house so close to the city is amazing!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We love living here, and the sense of community is amazing, we didn’t anticipate having such a great community around us.

The heating panels aren’t particularly great, and in the winter months the house is incredibly cold, even with the heaters on.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

On a whole the building management are friendly and helpful. But as mentioned there has been times where communication has been poor and waited a prolonged period of time for an answer.

Not many play areas for the children.

I do think there’s nothing for those young people of those area. Not many play areas for the children. Some of the walk ways for pedestrians are dangerous. They have no curb just blend into the road.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I dislike that there’s too many apartments being built which are to high. This is blocking out the light to our houses

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The actual houses built and lovely. I just think there’s too many high rises apartments and flats

What is the best feature of your home:

Design of the house is lovely. Lovely and spacious.

House living in the city

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2020

The US Houses offer good value for money as regards to the space. They offer 2 parking spaces and a lovely back garden with a living fence made of ivy. Wondows offer plenty of light.
There is also a good community feel with neighbours looking after each other.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The houses are very well located, close to the city centre & just a little stroll from Victoria station. All amenities are close by.
Further regeneration of the area must be carried on to enhance the area.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish we were told about the changes of the flat development at the end of our street.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best features of the houses are the space, the garden and the location.

Great size, location and value

Review Date Nov 2020

Great buildings in a great location. Some annoying design features (ie showers don’t drain well) but nothing that spoils the experience. The overall amount of space in the house is the best feature. Really good value rent considering size and location. Good community spirit.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great access to city without being right in the centre

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Wifi boosters are firmly needed, and you need to be on the front foot with the landlords

What is the best feature of your home:

The size of the house, including garden and high ceilings

Amazing location, amazing house

Review Date Nov 2020

Great house. Very modern (virtually everything is smart and can be managed from phone I.e lights heating). Really well insulated too. Only gripe would be there being only on parking space and not much space for visitors to park without blocking neighbours. Apart from that the area is fantastic.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great location, nice private green area.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Incredible location.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Lovely island but given no stools in furnishing package. Also was never given a key to alleyway in order to take bins out. Have been Waiting for this for 4 weeks. But apart from that it is perfect

Really happy with our modern spacious home

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2020

The development is good as it feels private and its a great neighbourhood. We have the communal garden which I hope we can all make more use of and be more social. No real traffic issues due to it being a dead end however there are a lot of cars that speed up Springfield Lane.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area is great, walking distance from Manchester and bars and shops. The development feels isolated from the traffic of the main road (trinity way) which is good and most of the time it feels quiet and peaceful. Its great being by the river, especially for our dog.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

More info about kitchen layout, cupboards etc and choice of having a dishwasher as we never use ours and would of preferred an extra cupboard

What is the best feature of your home:

Space, the open plan design is great, really suits our lifestyle
