Appleby Lodge


…its position ensures quietness and privacy with an outlook seldom found so near to the heart of Manchester.‌—Appleby Lodge Prospectus, 1939

Built for well-heeled Mancunians, well-known residents have included Sir John Barbirolli, who is honoured in a Manchester City Council Blue Plaque from 2002.‌—English Heritage, 2003

Appleby Lodge is Manchester's original urban oasis, combining the convenience of city living with open views over landscape gardens and parkland.

Appleby Lodge is laid out in eight three-storey blocks accessed from communal hallways. Most flats have, in addition to the main rooms, a spacious entrance hall and a balcony.

All reception and bedrooms are planned to give complete comfort, and to admit the maximum amount of light and air. All first and second floor sitting-rooms have access to a balcony overlooking the beautifully laid-out gardens. There are wide drives and parking spaces for residents and visitors, and garage accomodation is available to residents.
