Pri­est­ley com­pletes £ 1m ren­o­va­tion of his­toric house

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

A Grade II listed build­ing which once served as the head­quar­ters of a law firm has un­der­gone a £ 1m restoration into apart­ments.

Pri­est­ley Con­struc­tion, the Leeds- based con­trac­tor which spe­cialises in the re­fur­bish­ment of his­toric build­ings, has trans­formed Hanover House, the head of­fice of Blacks Solic­i­tors for 28 years, into 10 apart­ments.

Pri­est­ley re­fur­bished floor­boards and win­dows and in­te­grated ex­ist­ing fea­tures with mod­ern tech­nol­ogy in­clud­ing ad­vanced mu­sic and light­ing pro­grammes, to cre­ate con­tem­po­rary liv­ing spa­ces.

The Vic­to­rian build­ing, on Claren­don Road in the city cen­tre, was sold to a pri­vate buy- to- let in­vestor for an undis­closed sum. A show flat is now open to lo­cal renters.

Pri­est­ley Con­struc­tion car­ried out the ren­o­va­tion work on be­half of its sis­ter busi­ness, Pri­est­ley Homes. Both com­pa­nies fall un­der the wider Pri­est­ley Group.

Nathan Pri­est­ley, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Pri­est­ley Group, said: “It’s al­ways an hon­our to be en­trusted with bring­ing a his­toric build­ing back to its for­mer glory.

“We have a raft of ex­pe­ri­ence in trans­form­ing prop­er­ties of this na­ture into much- needed, high qual­ity apart­ments.”

“With this project, Pri­est­ley Con­struc­tion has cre­ated 10 high­spec­i­fi­ca­tion, lux­ury two bed­room apart­ments that were care­fully crafted to com­ple­ment the her­itage sta­tus of the grade two listed build­ing.”
