Work completed on £1m transformation of Grade-II listed building in Leeds city centre
Work is now completed on the £1m restoration of a Grade-II listed building in Leeds city centre.
Priestley Construction, which specialises in the refurbishment of historic buildings, has transformed Hanover House into ten new apartments.
Hanover House was previously used as the head office of Blacks Solicitors LLP.
The company’s restoration programme met exact planning requirements to satisfy strict conservation standards set by the local authority and English Heritage.
In retaining the building’s original features, Priestley Construction refurbished existing floorboards and windows, integrating the structures with modern technology including advanced music and lighting programmes, to create contemporary living spaces.
Located on Clarendon Road in Leeds city centre, the building sold to a private buy-to-let investor for an undisclosed sum.
Priestley Construction carried out the renovation work on behalf of its sister business, Priestley Homes, with both companies falling under the wider Yorkshire-based property company, the Priestley Group.
Nathan Priestley, chief executive officer of the Priestley Group, said: “It’s always an honour to be entrusted with bringing a historic building back to its former glory. We have a raft of experience in transforming properties of this nature into much-needed, high quality apartments.”
“With this project, Priestley Construction has created 10 high-specification, luxury two bedroom apartments that were carefully crafted to complement the heritage status of the Grade II listed building.”
