Michael Moore, Moores Senior Partner, says:
“These are great properties but to maximise the rental income you will need to install another bathroom. The lounge and dining kitchen could be made open-plan, which would allow for a shower room/wc where the present downstairs loo is, and there’s space on the first floor within the larger bedroom to install another (internal) bathroom adjacent to the present one – all the drainage is there. The cost wouldn’t be ridiculous and the yield on the capital invested would be great. Alternatively, I can see some en suites/Jack-and-Jill bathrooms being installed. That would soon take the rental income over £100 per tenant per week. A 10% return should be achievable here.”
Rachel Abbott, the negotiator at Moores who will be looking after this client, says:
“Rokeby Gardens is one of the lesser-known streets in Headingley. It’s quieter than most, having the woodland opposite that backs on to Beckett Park and the allotments. Car parking is better here, and it’s literally a few minutes walk over the park to get to the university campus for students, or a few minutes walk down Ash Road to the shops, bars and restaurants in Headingley, or the Headingley train station the opposite direction.”
From the centre of Headingley by the Headingley Central/Arndale Centre on Otley Road (A660) proceed south towards Leeds and turn right at the traffic lights onto North Lane. Follow North Lane around to the left in front of Headingley Taps public house and the arc bar (on the right). Continue through the traffic lights and continue onto Kirkstall Lane. With the cricket ground on your left, turn right into Estcourt Avenue. Continue across the junction with Canterbury Drive and at the top of the road proceed almost straight across Ash Road (slightly to the left) into Rokeby Gardens, where this property is located on the right.A brief history of this area
