Someone else said: “A beach hut with no electric, water or drainage in Abersoch costs the same as my three bedroomed home in Swansea.”
Another wrote: “I grew up near Abersoch. What should be a humble fishing village is now a playground of the rich, where a beach hut (with no electricity or running water) is sold for the price of a family home. It’s sickening but not surprising – and that in itself is sad.”
The property, which is listed as a ‘detached house’ on Rightmove, is being marketed at £200,000 and viewings are by appointment only.

A look at the plans to turn historic Ancoats mill with rich musical heritage into new apartment complex
Hodder + Partners have just revealed new CGIs and a more detailed look at the plans for their redevelopment of the longstanding Brunswick Mill in Ancoats which is set to become a brand-new apartment complex.
The proposals to turn the once creative space with decades of musical heritage into a new residential site were revealed back in 2021 and approved within just a few months, despite having been met with plenty of resistance given its history and cultural significance.
Nevertheless, Northern company Big Red Construction recently kicked off the £50+ million renovation on behalf of developer Arrowsmith Investments and the apartments are projected to be finished in 2026.
With that in mind, the architectural designers Hodder have just released a new look at what Brunswick Mill is set to look like once completed:
Set to transform the historic industrial mill-turned-creative space and music studios on the edge of New Islington into 153 new apartments, ranging from one, two and three-bedroom residences, the redevelopment will be spread across two phases.
In line with designs by Hodder + Partners, the initial phase involves converting the existing mill building and the construction of new four and seven-storey elements to accommodate the remaining 127 homes on the Bradford Road plot in Ancoats.
Big Red Construction, who are also working on the Peelers Yard building for CERT Property and Myprotein founder Oliver Cookson, are expected to complete phase one by the first quarter of 2026.
Here’s another look at what living space people are already buying up:
Along with Hodder + Partners as architects, the project team also consists of HW Consultancy who are covering structural aspects, Manchester firm Clancy for mechanical and electrical considerations, as well as AM Pyro as fire engineers.
With property company Orlando Reid serving as estate agents for the project, 42 out of the 153 apartments have already been sold off-plan, with managing director Baljit Arora describing it as “an exciting period for all parties involved and for the city of Manchester”.
This is just the latest chapter in the continued regeneration of the Ancoats and the New Islington areas, which remain two of the most heavily re-developed areas in the city centre and Greater Manchester as a whole. You can see other hot properties in and around the region HERE.
Inside Greater Manchester’s White House-style mansion that’s on the market for £3.25m
One of the most prestigious properties in Greater Manchester has just gone on the market, and it’s absolutely stunning.
Oh, and it also pays a bit of a resemblance to that big presidential gaff over in the US too.
Officially being listed as for sale last week on Valentine’s Day (14 February) with the Hale-based branch of estate agency chain, Jackson-Stops, for a Guide Price of a whopping £3.25 million, this impressive White House-style mansion occupies a prime position on North Road in the highly-regarded Trafford town of Hale.
Estate agents say the one-of-a-kind property is “bespoke” and has been “meticulously refurbished” in order to become the gem it is right now.
But, what exactly does the £3.25 million price tag get you then?

Well for starters, like we mentioned, it’s located in the heart of Hale – which is one of the most sought-after residential areas in Greater Manchester – and that means there’s an enviably-wide range of amenities, including local independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, all on the doorstep, as well as several well-regarded local schools, and some really convenient transport links across the region and beyond, within an easy reach too.
Not only is it in Hale, but estate agents claim it’s sat on one of the area’s “finest roads” too, so that already goes quite some way to explaining the listing price.
Set well-back from the road behind electric gates, and positioned within what are described as “large private grounds” that span approximately half an acre, the beautiful detached family home is immaculately-presented throughout, and right from the first glance of the pictures, it’s clear too see it has been lovingly-maintained by the current owners.
The property has several spacious reception rooms, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms to its name.
As well as boasting flexible and open-plan living accommodations that are light, spacious, modern, and tastefully decorated, there’s also some seriously stand-out features – including a grand reception hall, and a dining area overlooking gardens.
The living kitchen/diner is another one of the property’s highlights, and is referred to as the “focal point” of the home thanks to its space, top-of-the-range integrated appliances, and bi-fold doors leading to the rear garden.

All four bedrooms are suites, too – with the “generous” master bedroom boasting an en-suite bathroom and even a dressing room.
The outside grounds of the home are just as impressive as the inside too.
To the front, there’s a private driveway and a double garage that provides off-road parking for several vehicles, as well as a lawned garden area, while to the rear, the expansive space only continues wiht another large lawned garden, and a wrap-around stone flagged patio that’s perfect for entertaining all year round.
Oh, and to top it all off, this is also a Freehold house, which is always a massively-attractive feature for those looking to make changes to the property and grounds in the future.

If you ask us, we’d say viewing is an absolute must to appreciate all this house has to on offer.
So, if you like the looks of what you’ve seen, and you just so happen to have £3.25 million sitting pretty in your bank account ready to spend on a new home in Hale, then you can get in touch with Jackson-Stops now and register your interest.
