3 City Centre Flats We’d Kill to Live In

· Joseph Sheerin · Living

Flats so good, you’ll want to move in right away.

Roberts Wharf

The city centre is full of apartments worth making your claim on, but these three take the biscuit.

There are some flats in Leeds are just so gosh-darned amazing that we’d do anything to live in them – like these three. With their massive rooftop terraces, their incredibly spacious living areas and all those original character features, they’re so good, we’d absolutely kill to live in them. Find out why…

Want to live slap bang wallop in the heart of Leeds city centre? It doesn’t get more central than the Park Row Apartments, just around the corner from Greek Street. This 2-bed penthouse offers luxury city living in a converted 19th-century office building. They’ve retained many of its original character features, from the tall vaulted ceilings to the statement windows.

The spacious open plan living area comes complete with a modern L-shaped kitchen and opens out onto your very own private roof terrace, where you can enjoy the summer sun. You’re looking at £1,650 a month to bag this beauty, which boasts two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room.

The 2-bedroom flat at Park Row Apartments is available to rent now with Morgans City Living. 

Roberts Wharf

The waterfront Roberts Wharf is one of the most coveted addresses in Leeds and this 2-bedroom penthouse apartment is an absolute dream. Once a 19th-century mill, it’s been transformed into a modern apartment building with loads of character features. Think exposed brickwork, vaulted architectural iron beams and industrial windows.

There’s a huge open plan living area where the old meets new and a sleek modern kitchen with modern fixtures and fittings. Of course, it doesn’t come cheap. It’s £1,500 a month, but that gets you two bedrooms, both equally spacious, and there’s a terrace that looks out over the River Aire too.

The 2-bedroom flat at Roberts Wharf is available to rent now with Tudor Sales and Lettings. 

Faroe, City Island

Faroe, City Island

City Island wouldn’t usually get a look in on a list like this, but there’s no denying that this penthouse suite is the bees knees. It has not one, not two, but three rooftop terraces that offer incredible views of the city. And it’s just as good inside with floor to ceiling windows that span the full height of this two-floor duplex.

It’ll set you back £1,250, which ain’t bad for a two-bed apartment that seems to go on forever. Downstairs, there’s an expansive open-plan living space, and if you follow the spiral staircase up to the mezzanine, which is a room in itself, you’ll find two big, if oddly shaped bedrooms.

The 2-bedroom penthouse flat at Faroe, City Island is available to rent now with Linley and Simpson.
