Sale of Major Yorkshire Development and Investment Stock


The Leeds office of Chartered Surveyors Eddisons has completed the sale of three residential development and investment opportunities across the Yorkshire region.

These include a vacant apartment block in Sheffield comprising 15, one and two bedroom apartments arranged over three floors, with mobility apartments at ground floor level.

Bellhouse Mews on Bellhouse Road in the Firth Park area of the city, close to the Northern General Hospital, had been used previously as support accommodation for young adults. It has been bought by a private investor off an asking price of £1m.

Elsewhere, a portfolio of Grade II listed period buildings in Wakefield with potential for residential conversion has been sold for off a combined asking price of £850,000.

The properties at St John’s North, close to Wakefield Girls High School and Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, form part of a Georgian terrace of former offices and residential blocks, extending to nearly 16,000 sq ft.

Meanwhile, a block of eight part-tenanted apartments within a purpose built development in Castleford which currently produce income of £36,720 per annum, has been sold off an asking price of £350,000.

John Padgett, Head of Agency at Eddisons, said: ‘We are delighted to have concluded these deals which indicate a renewed appetite for development and investment stock across the region.’
