Is this Greater Manchester’s poshest Airbnb?

It’s the perfect Georgian property.

Four floors of restored splendour just ten minutes from Manchester city centre with enough space to accommodate a football team in Premiership comfort.

And it has to be one of the poshest Airbnb in town.

The house sits on The Crescent right opposite Salford University and is managed by Michael Finn who lives just round the corner.

He said: “Although it’s on a main road many people don’t actually know it is here. They think it is part of the university not a private house.”

The property had been used as offices by Salford Council for many years and Michael had watched the previous owners restore it to its original glory over four years.

He said: “They were an incredibly talented couple with an eye for design and went through it with painstaking detail bringing it back to how it should be and it was a labour of love over several years.

“But it was a huge project and when it came onto the market I went to look and knew it was good but even so I was dubious about the main road and the plans around the University area and it was my partner who convinced me it was a unique opportunity.”

It was sold for £600,000 and there are plans to extend the 4,500sq ft property by converting the basement into more bedrooms and adding a glazed extension at the back.

But the extension plans are on hold since the house became an Airbnb hit.

Michael said: “I manage other large houses on nearby Acton Square which are let out on a room by room basis and I intended to do the same with this one. But it was only when I went round that I realised just how exquisite it is and decided to do something different.

“I considered living in it myself but it is too vast for just two people and then it was listed as an Airbnb and it just took off.”

With five double bedrooms and a single, a huge first floor drawing room with original fireplace, a dining room to seat 16 and a sleek bespoke kitchen the house is popular with extended families wanting to stay together close to the city and larger groups of friends.

Michael said: “For some reason we have had a lot of reunions of medics! It’s a great house for that.

“We have also had a lot of families from abroad, there was an Arabian couple with their family recently and people from France and Switzerland. They like the sophistication and grandeur and being so close to everything.

“It is 50 yards from Salford Crescent station which every train in the north goes through – including the one linking to the airport – and it is four stops to Piccadilly. There is a car parking space but you can easily walk into Manchester.

“It is really heart-warming to read the reviews and see how much people have enjoyed staying here.”

The house can be booked through Pass the Property and director Haminder Singh Chana said: “It is one of the best properties in Manchester with a unique ‘wow’ factor. As many guests say it offers the ultimate in-house goals!”

And Michael believes the ambitious redevelopment plans around The Crescent and the University will transform the area over the next decade making the property even more attractive.

He said: “Right now this area is a bit of an unknown secret with not many people aware of Peel Park and the Art Gallery and Museum and Acton Square which is a hidden gem of a little square full of trees and surrounded by Georgian architecture.

“The plans they have will make it a tasteful hub of activity and I think it will be fantastic.”

Michael is a recent city convert, having moved to Salford from Bramhall four years ago and says: “The great thing about being in the city is you never get bored and there’s a growing group of us who have decided not to decay in suburbia but to be at the heart of things.

“I would never have known about this house if I hadn’t have lived here and I have lots of ideas for it. It could be a boutique pop up restaurant or a cookery school. Who knows. I am just poking a cloud to see what comes out.”
