Liam Gallagher's New Manchester Home

Jill Burdett ponders where the millionaire musician might buy - if he lives up to his promise

Published on May 15th 2012.


Liam Gallagher's New Manchester Home

SO WILL Liam Gallagher keep his word and move back to Manchester now that his beloved Manchester City has finally, gloriously, won the Premier League title race?

After his team beat rival Manchester United the Burnage boy vowed he would buy a house in his home city if the Blues managed to clinch top spot.

And as he may well have something of a celebratory headache we at Manchester Confidential thought we would help out and offer up a selection of places we think would fit the bill.

First up has to be a period property close to his boyhood haunts in Burnage that comes complete with a pool table and an outdoor swimming pool.

You really don't find that many swimming pools in Burnage.

BurnageBurnageIt’s on Grange Avenue, a road of unexpectedly grand houses. And while the pool is currently a murcky mess and the interior is in need of an update it’s big enough for Liam and his pals to party with plenty of room outside to park. It also has a pool table and a massive flat screen TV. Boy heaven.

£425,000

Or what about something right opposite the Etihad?

For a Blue there can be no better way to start the day than walking onto a balcony and looking out at the scene of their triumph.

This one has two double bedrooms, two balconies and a car parking space, although the tram will be running outside the door from next season. But it's handy for Asda should he need to pop out for some fruit.

If he wants to go city flash then it has to be No1 Deansgate and this duplex penthouse at £1.4m.

The buffer zone terrace means he can check out what’s happening in the city below him without getting mobbed.

Perhaps he'll be more attracted by city cool.

So if the Canal Street property featured the other week on Manchester Confidential here doesn't tempt him then how about a stunner in a former shoe factory on Turner Street in the Northern Quarter.

There is a bit of football politics here as it was once the home of Chris Joyce, the drummer with Simply Red, fronted of course by arch Red Mick Hucknall.

It has been completely refurbished since then by the current owner so it may be sweet revenge to see the Red pad turn Blue.

Similarly Fabian Barthez’s old place at the other end of town in Deansgate Quay is still on the market.

It needs a bit of work on the interior but he would have a big private terrace and plenty enough space to park the car.

While he said he would buy a house in Manchester he may decide to tweak that pledge and follow many of the Manchester City players out into the south Manchester/Cheshire suburbs.

This 8,000sq ft mansion in Bowdon has just been finished and ticks all the luxury boxes with fancy sound systems and vast tv’s – it’s even got a four car garage with a hydraulic lift..

Or he could stick with his roots and opt for a perfectly presented three bed semi on Devon Avenue, just off The Kingsway which makes it easy to head back to London after a game.

There’s no garden to worry about, but there are iron gates to keep the fans at bay and the Jacuzzi bath any rock star needs.

The Devon Avenue photo is actually Number 1 Deansgate

Thank you Daniel

Excellent article. Any chance of a piece on where other people might buy houses? Maybe you could do a series? I'm sure lots of people would be excited to receive a weekly dose of "stuff that could, but probably won't happen" in their inbox.

I, for one, would love to see an article about what car celebrity chef James Martin might buy next. Or perhaps your investigative journalism could be put to good use in preparing a list of shops where Coleen Rooney might shop at one day?

Keep up the good work.

Jill, you missed out the best option, which is to have contemporary one designed by a Manchester architect. I might even consider changing colours for such a commission !!
