The developers extensive experience in both student developments and lettings, means they know exactly what to offer in order to please both investors and student tenants alike. Aiming squarely at the luxury end of the market, the apartments are far larger than what the current market has to offer. And the onsite, games, café, gym and study facilities help create a thriving student community within its four walls.

The museum on the first floor is a permanent exhibition of some of the old mill machinery that has been carefully removed from the original site. The building is the world’s first mechanical silk mill, dating back to 1700, and the developer is keen to showcase this and preserve its important historical heritage.

Each apartment is built to a high specification and a full furniture pack can be provided.

The University City

Set within easy reach of some of Britain’s most breathtaking landscapes – including the Lake District, Forest of Bowland, and Yorkshire Dales – Lancaster is truly an enviable city to live in.


First settled as a Roman outpost in 1st century AD, the city boasts a long and illustrious history, both as an important regional centre and as home to one of Northern England’s premier seats of learning. Yet, with a population of just 138,375, it retains a homespun feel distinct from some of its larger neighbours.


As the county town of Lancashire, it possesses excellent transport links with the rest of the region and the UK as a whole. Lancaster is located just 52 miles north west of Manchester and provides easy access to the M6 for routes to Scotland, London, and Southern England.


Lancaster is also on the West Coast Mainline, providing fast, direct connections to all of the UK’s major cities including Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow, and London. Travel to local centres such as Liverpool, Leeds, and Manchester is served by a regular regional service.


And, with Manchester International Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport both approximately 70 minutes away, residents benefit from a choice of over 90 destinations globally.
