Rusholme: More than just the home of the Curry Mile

Rusholme: More than just the home of the Curry Mile

Those looking for a new place to live close to Manchester city centre might like to consider property for sale in Rusholme and the surrounding areas.

Popular with students, young professionals and families, Rusholme is located no more than a ten-minute bus or car ride away from the centre of Manchester, making it ideal for commuters to central offices, the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Rusholme is perhaps most famous as the home of the Curry Mile, which delivers exactly what it says it will - through the centre of the area is a mile-long stretch of road, lined on both sides with approximately 70 Asian eateries.

From Indian to Pakistani and Sri Lankan to Bangladeshi cuisine, there is more than enough on offer to satisfy everyone's tastes, leaving those that opt to move to Rusholme with a difficult choice when it comes to deciding where to eat out.

In the evenings, the street comes alive, as everyone comes out to dine and enjoy the nightlife the area has to offer.

However, there is a lot more to Rusholme than just curry, with every amenity residents would need, including doctors' surgeries, pharmacies, grocery stores and nearby schools. It is also just a short walk from the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

House hunters needn't worry about the area being too noisy though, as there are plenty of hidden side streets featuring a range of old terraced and more modern homes, taking residents away from the bustling centre.

Just a few more stops on the bus or around a 20-30 minute walk away are the equally popular residential areas of Fallowfield and Withington.

Again, properties in these areas are coveted by students due to their proximity to Manchester's universities, but they are also home to many professionals and families, thanks to their reasonable prices.

Withington has its own tram stop, while there are bigger supermarkets in these two areas, as well as plenty more restaurants for those fancying a change of scenery from Rusholme for the evening.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801744674-ADNFCR
