Michael Moore, Moores Senior Partner, says:
“This is an historic landmark building in Far Headingley. It would have once been a thriving forge and blacksmiths, well known to the villagers and an essential part of the local community. David Hall’s wonderful book on Far Headingley, Weetwood and West Park, has a section dedicated to 10 & 12 Moor Road, detailing previous owners and how its uses changed as horse drawn vehicles were superseded by the motor car. I can envisage a number of uses for the premises, especially conversion into flats for letting, as rents in this location are some of the best in Leeds. Although conversion to a single dwelling could be dramatic.”
Rachel Abbott, one of Moores Negotiators/Valuers, says:
“This is a unique opportunity for someone. This commerical site within the Far Headingley Village is not really in-keeping with the residential nature of the area, although it’s been a car service garage for around 70 years, so it’s well established. I can’t see it continuing as a commercial building, and I suspect the local authority would welcome a change of use to residential for the whole site. It will be interesting to see what someone does with it.”
From the centre of Headingley, proceed northwest along the A660 Otley Road and turn right off Otley Road in front of The Three Horseshoes public house onto Weetwood Lane. Take the next right onto Moor Road and just as you proceed around the left-hand bend this property can be found on the right, at the junction with Oddy Place.A brief history of this area
