Model Lodging

On Bloom Street in Salford not far from Salford Central Station stands this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom duplex apartment. This is far from the accommodation it offered when it opened in 1893. During Victorian times there was a lot of concern about the conditions that working people found themselves living in especially privately owned lodgings that were unhealthy. Around the country the councils began building "model lodging houses" to provide accommodation for single men and women.

When this Model Lodging House opened in Bloom Street it was the first of its kind in the country. It offered accommodation for 285 men and some lodgers were said to have lived there for over twenty years.

The Tour

The lower level comprises of a very spacious living and dining space with a huge kitchen surface area. Leading upstairs you enter into two double bedrooms with a skylights flooding the rooms with natural light. The primary bedroom benefits from a void space big enough to offer a separate space to work and an en-suite. Further to the bedrooms is a family bathroom.

The Area

The property is located on Bloom Street, seconds from Chapel Street. With the addition of coffee shops and late-night convenience stores, you might feel like you are a part of the big city but with a smaller community feel.

One of the biggest attractions to this area is the distance from Manchester City Centre, where a 3 minute walk will take you to bus routes in and out of the city. The same short walk will bring you to Salford Central train station, that services most Northern stations. If you fancy a walk, it will take you only 12-15 minutes to get to St. Peter's Square for the Metrolink.

Located across the road from the 'King's Arms' bar, you will not be short for fun events to participate in. From knitting clubs to hilarious comedy shows in the atrium or just a quiet drink with a duke box and friends in the main bar, there is something for everyone.
