The seller told us:
“I’ve loved living here and over the years I’ve really been able to make it my home. The location is so convenient: you can get the bus, from a stop only a minute’s walk away, into the city centre, or the train from Headingley station which is a 10 minute walk. The street is lovely, the neighbours friendly – most have lived here for years – and it’s quiet and looks especially attractive during Kirkstall in Bloom, where everyone makes an effort with their plant pots and hanging baskets. I’ve been so fortunate to have Kirkstall Abbey on my doorstep too. It’s literally down the street and across the road, there is a monthly food market as well as regular events. I’ve treated it as my ‘back garden’ for the last 12 years! The local amenities are great, including Morrisons, Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park, Pure Gym, the Bridge pub and not forgetting the best Tapas in Leeds, Dos Amigos, only a 3 minute walk down the road! Over the years I have renovated the house throughout. I’ve installed a new bathroom, kitchen, fireplace with electric log burner, laminate flooring and carpeting, and made to measure wooden blinds. I also replaced the central heating boiler just over a year ago.”
Kristy Marsden, one of Moores Negotiators, says:
“I can’t say much more about the location that the seller has already said. She’s highlighted all the benefits of this wonderful part of Leeds. As a local independent estate agent with a good market share in this area I can add that the Vespers and the Normans are very popular. They don’t come up for sale that often, and when they do there’s always plenty of interest from first time buyers and buy-to-let landlords – we’ve recently let a similar back-to-back for £700 pcm (furnished), which makes the yield on one of these houses an attractive 6.5%-7%. As a starter home, this is a great little property – cheap to run, lowest possible Council Tax band, useful storage basement and loft area, etc. And when it comes to moving on, if you don’t have to sell to release capital for a deposit on your next house, you could always keep this as part of your future pension!”
From the junction of the A65 Abbey Road and Kirkstall Road, by the junction with Kirkstall Lane and Bridge Road, proceed west along the A65 towards Kirkstall Abbey and Horsforth and turn first major right after the West End Public House into Norman Street. Vesper Terrace is then second right, the house is located on the right-hand side.A brief history of this area
