Who Wants To Join Us In West Didsbury?

Burton Road, West Didsbury

As much as we love travelling, we love Manchester very much. We’ve lived here since college days – since before The Stone Roses had even thought of thought of becoming a band. We’ve lived in a few places – Hulme (old-style Hulme with the Crescents, the PSV & The Grants, Rusholme (in the days before the branding of Curry Mile), Victoria Park, Fallowfield and for the last 11 years, Didsbury. To be more specific, West Didsbury. Well, even more specific, Burton Road. And, we love it.

We love that when we sold our house in Fallowfield, we found a perfect flat to rent on Burton Rd. The flat above Conley Hair & Beauty. Of course, we didn’t know that a few years later, we’d be occupying what used to be PJ Savers & the flat above, adjacent to our lovely, sunny West Didsbury Burton Rd flat. We loved that across the road we had R&M Deli, owned by the wonderful Bogda. We loved that we had Cachumba on the doorstep & the Thai E-Sarn (now Crazy Wendy’s) literally underneath us. But we also loved that while we were in the flat, we spotted the house that we’ve come to love even more. We could see it from the flat and we wanted it – and, thankfully, we got it.

Time moved on – we created an office in the house to accommodate the burgeoning Didsbury Life & our design agency. Then, we took an office, above a clinic,  in Didsbury Village. But again, we knew what we wanted. A shop front. A shop front with a bit of stature. A shop front that still retained the old West Didsbury charm. And one day, the premises that had been PJ Savers came vacant  – and we went for it. Perhaps naively we also took on the flat above – the mirror image of our old flat. It was expensive. We poured money into a seemingly bottomless pit. But, we KNEW what we were doing. You see, we had a PLAN.

So, for the last three years, we’ve co-existed with some lovely businesses, who’ve been part of our plan. They lived upstairs. As Didsbury Life, we’ve lived downstairs. But things change & move on. The businesses have gradually moved on and we’ve decided it’s time to have a flat above us like the one we used to live in. And that’s where you might come in…

We’ve renovated & refurbished the flat – it’s all a bit neutral & white currently, but it is gorgeous. It’s MASSIVE. It’s also on the doorstep of many more places than we had at our disposal back in 1998. If you’re looking to move and fancy a spacious 3 bed flat in West Didsbury, then give us a call on 0161 445 7759 (leave a message if the office is closed) and come & have a closer look…
