Centenary Mill Court New Hall Lane Preston


Recommended Posts

Came across this property:

Apartment 106, Centenary Mill Court New Hall Lane, Preston, Lancashire PR1 5JJ

Being marketed for £122,000


Originally sold 28-Feb-2005 for £135,996


Also noted that a lot of these flats have now been resold, but most at a loss. Are there some fundamental probs with the development or is it just a question of bad timing (not for the developer obviously)?

Lived in Preston all my life, it's close to town but at the top end of new hall lane which contains over 20 takeaways.

The Callen estate which is a 5 minute walk was one of the worst estates in northen england.

I went to view one last year with my sister, the bottom floor appartments are poor and small, looks like a prison inside the hall way. Make what you will heard they filled most of the bottom floor with people on housing benefits because they couldn't sell. The top floor seemed a little better but not much. Basically one massive open plan room, and by massive I mean about 12 ft high with paint comming off one of the walls.

The one you've linked is one of the bigger appartments on the upper floor, I wonder how much that would cost to heat in Winter?

I'd pay 70k.

................looks like a prison inside the hall way.....

Funny you should say that, I had a drive around the back the other day and that's the impression I got of the outside.

When I see these massive mill complexes converted into housing (and the preceding loss of jobs), I often wonder what people now do for a living?

I would avoid anything on or close to New Hall Lane. I would only pay half the current asking price if I had to live there. Smack rats, prostitutes and unsavory characters are a plenty in that part of the city. Does it come with standard baseball bat or the upgrade of shotgun behind the front door?
