One of Manchester’s rare Georgian townhouses is up for rent… for a cool £15k a month

It's the only surviving street of its kind.

Manchester city centre has a lot of beautiful property, but rows of historic townhouses are extremely thin on the ground.

In fact, the neat road of St John Street is the only remaining Georgian terraced street in the centre of Manchester, dating all the way back to around 1785.

For generations, these stunning buildings have been used as offices, but in recent years they’ve carefully been returned to their former glory as four-storey homes.

And now they’re popping up on the local property market, with a couple of the houses up for rent.

They don’t come cheap, unsurprisingly, given a) their location just off Deansgate, b) the high-spec refurb they’ve all gone through and c) the fact that houses in Manchester city centre are practically non-existent.


One of the Georgian houses on St John Street is currently on the market to rent for £15,000 per month.

Another is listed at £10,000 per month. Right.


They’re among the most expensive rental homes in the city currently, beaten only by the penthouse apartments in Beetham Tower and the Century Buildings.

For the top whack, you’ll get three bedrooms, three bathrooms, four reception rooms and around 3,000 sq ft of home.

The four-storey layout includes an entertainment room and bar in the basement, a huge kitchen and living spaces on the ground floor, a first-floor master bedroom with massive en suite and walk-in wardrobe, then another floor of bedrooms or office space.


The more expensive of the two homes is currently undergoing its renovation, so pictures from a neighbouring home – finished to the same spec – are being used online instead.

Reside Manchester, who are marketing the Georgian rental townhouse, say: “The townhouse has been restored and renovated to its former glory, by utilising the highest of specification available, to include marble cloud tiling with underfloor heating to hallway and kitchen areas.

“The bespoke contemporary kitchen has been designed by Stuart Frazer and retains original fireplaces within the contemporary new kitchen.”

The listing continued: “The townhouse is furnished to the very highest of standards with no expense spared on the fixtures and fittings throughout the home.

“The basement level adds an extra dimension to the townhouse, having been beautifully converted to add a further entertaining area with bespoke bar, utility room and wine cellar.”
