The Gallery, Whalley Range
The Gallery, Whalley Range, is an innovative development of apartments a mere two miles from Manchester city centre, in the heart of the historic Whalley Range urban conservation area.
An adventurous fusion of classical Victorian architecture and the very best contemporary design and materials, The Gallery provides 24 two-bedroom apartments of exceptional quality, each with secure off-road parking, in a building that blends seamlessly into the leafy avenues, listed villas and parkland of the surrounding area.
The building traces its origins to the wealth and enterprise of Samuel Brooks, a Lancashire businessman and industrialist of the early 19th century responsible for much of the development in the district – including this former local horse tram depot. Today, the horses are long gone and Manchester’s trams run on electricity, but the elegant period façade of the depot remains, forming the centrepiece of this sensitive Hillcrest Homes refurbishment.
The development was a refreshing change to the rows of identikit steel and timber apartment blocks populating the area and al properties have now been sold.
