Auction Details
Unique residential development opportunity with planning consent for development of the historic Grade II Listed Micklefield House to provide 8 apartments with parking set on a site of 0.33 Acres (0.13 HA). The attractive 4 storey property is thought to have been a private residence until 1937, when it became used as offices for Leeds City Council. The property currently provides accommodation totalling approximately 996 sq m (10,720 sq ft) and whilst it has been used as office accommodation it retains many of the original features from its previous residential use such as stained glass windows, fireplaces and architectural features. The building currently provides interview rooms, toilets, offices and administration facilities and a large meeting room and is in need of some repair.
The property is located in the village of Rawdon which is a suburb of Leeds located approximately 7 miles to the north west of Leeds City Centre and 7 miles to the north east of Bradford City centre. The property is excellently positioned for the village amenities and has good transport connections to the wider region via the railway stations at Apperley Bridge, Horsforth and Guisleley respectively. Leeds Bradford Airport is located within approximately 3 miles and the M621 motorway lies approximately 10 miles to the south.

Leeds is a major commercial and regional centre in the north of England and the principal city within the Yorkshire and Humberside regions. Growth over the last two decades has elevated Leeds to the position of a key employment centre along with Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Bristol.
