The seller told us:
“I originally lived in Newport Gardens as a family home but moved out of Leeds with work many years ago. I let the house with the intention of moving back to Leeds to this property, as I loved it so much. But I’ve now established my life down south and can’t see me returning, hence the time has come to sell. I retained as much of the character as I could, and although some landlords have adapted this sort of terrace house to accommodate lots of students, I never wanted it to lose its charm. I may not have generated as much rent as I could, but I’m glad I can pass the house onto someone else who can appreciate all the things I loved about it.”
Rachel Abbott, the negotiator at Moores who will be handling this sale, says:
“The Newports are in a really popular area, whether students, professional tenants or owner-occupiers, these cobbled streets retain such a lot of character. This conservation area has an abundance of trees and shrubs in the gardens, which makes this a delightful, colourful, suburb compared to many other areas. It’s known as the ‘Cardigan Triangle’ due to the shape the area occupies on a map – Cardigan Road to the east, St Michael’s Road to the north and Newport View and Newport Road to the southwest. Whether you need access into Leeds, to the universities or to Burley, Kirkstall or Headingley, this is very centrally positioned, with good transport train and bus services.”
From the centre of Headingley by the Arndale Centre/Headingley Central, proceed south along the A660 Otley Road turning right at the first set of traffic lights into North Lane. Continue to the next set of major traffic lights and turn left into Cardigan Road then first right into St Michael’s Lane. Continue along St Michael’s Lane with the cricket and rugby ground on your right and turn left into Newport View. Continue to the end of Newport View and turn left onto Newport Road. Newport Gardens is then the first major left (after the service road). This property can then be found on the left-hand side.A brief history of this area
