Fourteen luxurious apartments have been created within the upper floors of three adjoining historic buildings.
Accommodation comprises 3 one-bedroom apartments, 10 two-bedroom apartments and a three-bedroom apartment. Launching 4th-5th June.
Every apartment has its own bespoke layout and charm, dictated by a desire to maximise space, light and to take advantage of the building’s unique period character and architecture. Stylish living spaces are adorned with original features, such as exposed roof beams and vaulted ceilings, original ‘nooks and crannies’ and shaped walls lovingly incorporated into the modern form along with stunning restored period windows.
The accommodation, however, is very much focused on the ‘today’ and provides an environment that complements a busy lifestyle. Provided are sociable open plan kitchen/dining and living areas and spacious double bedrooms which are either en suite or next to a main bathroom. Some one bedroom apartments also offer a dedicated space for a study, accommodating today’s requirement for home working. Apartments within Old Half Moon Chambers and Chapel Walks Chambers benefit from lift access to the upper floors. Whereas Union Buildings has stair only access, with many of the flights featuring restored period hand rails and ironmongery.

The Chambers comprises three buildings – Old Half Moon Chambers, Chapel Walks Chambers and Union Buildings – the interiors of which have been skilfully merged whilst retaining each individual and imposing period façade. As well as being interesting examples of early and late Victorian architecture, these buildings have stood the test of time and have adapted to suit the changing needs of their occupants; providing a base for every kind of trade, from silk merchant to post-punk clothing store.
Chapel Walks Chambers
This little gem, tucked in between its bigger neighbours, is believed to be of early 19th Century origin and was probably built as a merchant’s warehouse. It’s a tardis in that it extends quite some distance back and is far broader at the was given a ‘face lift’ in the late 19th Century to reveal the elaborate carved stone facade we see today and, at the same time, the interior was remodeled to become chambers for various Manchester businessmen. Experts class it as a ‘competent example of late Victorian commercial architecture’, we think it’s rather special.
The apartments feature contemporary kitchens in a choice of finishes from German manufacturers, Beckermann, a leading long-established kitchen brand renowned for its clean lines, appealing aesthetics and environmental credentials. An ample supply of spacious wall and base units
