Footballer Phil Neville has put his luxury apartment up for rent for £15,000 a month.

The former Everton and Manchester United star is looking for a tenant for his home in Beetham Tower in Manchester - but it will set back the new occupant an eye-watering £180,000 a year.
Thought to be one of the city’s most expensive rental properties ever, the 45th-floor apartment boasts four bedrooms and stunning near 360 degree views from its floor-to-ceiling windows.

For the kids: While bedrooms occupy the top floor, most of the bottom floor is a custom-built playroom


Looking for interest: The estate agents said they have had 'quite a few enquiries about this property since we put it up for rent but have yet to find a tenant'

The property has been on the market to sell since 2010, when it had an asking price of £4million before being reduced by £250,000 - but it remains for sale at £3.75million.

Named The Orchid Suite, the home is described as ‘5,000 sq ft of pure luxury’ by the estate agents - and even comes with five parking spaces.

The apartment also has his-and-hers dressing rooms and chutes which connect each bedroom’s laundry baskets to the utility room below.

'This is definitely the most expensive apartment we have ever marketed - it’s like a mansion in the sky'
Jennie Platt, City Centre Chic
Founder and managing director Jennie Platt said: ‘This is definitely the most expensive apartment we have ever marketed - it’s like a mansion in the sky.
‘This is in a prime location and on another level of luxury. We have had quite a few enquiries about this property since we put it up for rent but have yet to find a tenant.
‘Because of the transfer window, this is one of the busiest times of year for us in terms of new players, managers and football executives coming to Manchester.’

Hard to imagine that there will be a rush of potential tenants!

I don't like it around myself either! I wouldn't be able to go near the windows as I have a problem with heights.

I didn't like that either, however safe it is said to be.

I wouldn't want to live with those floor to ceiling windows in every room. I'd get giddy near them!

There is no warmth or character to it at all .....doesn't look as if his wife had any say in the decor. I certainly wouldn't buy it even if i had the money. !!!

Reminds me a bit of another house which was owned by an American Film Star which i posted on here a while ago, can't remember his name.

Its rubbish and the only rich people who would want (or more like need) to live in Manchester are football players who play for either  City or United.
Over priced and pretentious.

Apart from that i would be more worried about the hard floors for baby to crack their heads open.I like the glass windows and the height as i have always lived 'on the edge' so they don't bother me.

I think if I went to visit with my children I would be on edge every time they went near the windows......the same feeling you get when you are waiting on a station and you see a child go too near the edge off the platform ....no I don't like it.



I like to be protected by bricks and mortar .


It bought back memories off Eric Claptons son who fell out off the window 50 floors up and was killed.

Yes I thought of Conor Clapton too.

Some lovely home videos of him here.

I'm surprised that full length windows are legal in tower blocks.

It may eventually be rented at half the price to a Man Utd Player on top earnings.

I hadn't seen that video before, thanks NBY........


How very very sad and it chokes you up and if I do remember, Eric wasn't able to formally identify him because off his injuries, his friend had to do that.

I've just read on the Nigella Lawson topic that she has been living in a £10 grand a week flat since leaving the marital home so, perhaps after a little haggling on the price, she'll be heading for Manchester next!

There were photos which never showed up on the post I did showing Nigella's cooking pans being taken out of the House with her belongings, someone in the Studio remarked how squeaky clean they were.LOl
