Leopold Square, in the heart of Sheffield City Centre
Holly House located in the beautiful GradeÂ II listed building of Leopold Square in Sheffield Centre certainly caught my eye when it came to the market two days ago.
Leopold Square was formerly used as a High School dating back to early 1900â€™s and wasÂ voted as Sheffieldâ€™s Best New Building by people living and working in the city back in 2011.
Advertised by Blundells at Â£140,000 I feel that this is way too high an asking price for a 1 bedroom apartment with no allocated car parking space. I would expect this property to sell for closer to the Â£120,00 – Â£125,000 price range.
At the current asking price, I would expect this property this apartment to be on the market for a very long time.
Internally the property is a generous size and would make a young professional couple a lovely first home at the heart of the hustle and bustle of the City Centre. The market is seeing 1 bedroom apartments similar to this one achieving rents of around Â£700pcm.
If you are looking to invest in a property with character and history, Leopold Square is the place to be but of course the key is to buy at the right price!
