The resurgence in Leeds waterside living has passed another major milestone with the listing of the first £500,000 property in one sought-after development since the economic crash.
The two-bedroom penthouse apartment at Magellan House, in the heart of the fashionable Leeds Dock area, is being marketed through the city centre office of Linley & Simpson
Sales Manager Andy Bonner said: “This is a landmark listing in the renaissance of waterside living in general, and Leeds Dock in particular.
“This is the first time the Leeds city centre team at Linley & Simpson has launched to market a city centre apartment with an asking price of £500,000
“More importantly, it represents the first half-a-million-pound home to go on sale at Leeds Dock since the property crash a decade ago.
“That is a good barometer of the strength of the current market, and underlines just how far the city centre has travelled in its recovery since those days.
“It is also a clear signal as we pass the start of 2018 of the appeal that waterside living still commands in Leeds.
Leeds Dock is an award-winning development by Crosby Homes and was known initially as Clarence Dock when first built.
Set around the old dockland of the city, it offers tranquil waterside living, and regular events and festivals, with the city centre only being a short walk away.
There are a variety of on-site restaurants including a Pizza Express and Mumtaz – along with a Tesco Express, coffee shop and pay-per-month gym.
The property itself is a two bedroom, two bathroom 10th-floor penthouse apartment.
Available furnished and covering over 1180 sq ft, the open plan living area occupies a dual aspect position, with a large recessed kitchen/diner, dining and sitting area and high ceilings.
There is a virtual wall of windows at the far end, which give access to a large wrap-around balcony, offering both water and city views.
Off the spacious entrance hall is a contemporary house W/C, large storage cupboard and two double bedrooms, both with en-suites – the master having a walk-in wardrobe.
Two allocated gated parking spaces are included, one which allows for two small cars.
