The sellers told us:
“This is a lovely characterful flat which we’ll be sorry to leave. The location is great because it is a quiet leafy street, with access to Woodhouse Ridge at the end of the road, whilst being really close to all the shops, bars and restaurants of Headingley. Everyone in the building is friendly and polite and the large garden is great in summer. It is a peaceful oasis so close to the city.”
Rachel Abbott, Moores Negotiator handling this sale, says:
“Glennan is one of those original Victorian family homes that were built in the early to mid 1800’s for the wealthy families of Leeds to escape the smog of industrial Leeds. We don’t know who originally had the house built, but it has a number of ornate details in its construction. It was possibly built over a number of years with extensions; this was common where families became wealthier as commerce in Leeds developed over the decades of the 1800’s. The conversion into flats possibly took place in the 1920’s or 1930’s, when the country was in recession and families found it financially difficult to maintain these rather indulgent homes. We’re keeping our eyes open for any other history facts about Glennan.”
From the centre of Headingley at the junction with the A660 Otley Road and North Lane, proceed along Otley Road towards the city centre.
