Kirkstall Design Centre has been refurbished from a Grade II-listed stone building in a popular student area in Leeds and just a short walk from Headingley train station. These one and two bedroom studio apartments are in high demand and have been 100% occupied for the last 2 years, making for a unique student investment opportunity.

The development offers 27 luxury apartments including 2 bedroom, 1 bedroom and self-contained studios of which there are a limited number of deluxe mezzanine studios.

All apartments have been designed to maximise space and are fitted out to an excellent specification. The interiors represent the latest in design and functionality. Kirkstall Design Centre is the latest scheme to be introduced by experienced local developers Priestley Homes who specialise in the conversion of historic buildings.

The region offers access to eight world-class universities with the main three alone contributing to over 52,000 students. However, the universities in Leeds can only supply accommodation for just 24% of students, making this the perfect opportunity to service those students who are looking for high quality contemporary accommodation.

Situated only 2.5 miles from the city centre, Kirkstall Design Centre is within easy access of the main university campuses as well as the theatre, museum and gallery quarters and all major retail and nightlife.

In nearby Headingley – which is home to a large majority of the student population – an abundance of restaurants and bars can be found plus the Arndale shopping centre, cinema and popular sports venues including the Yorkshire County Cricket club. Other nearby amenities include Kirkstall Valley Retail Park, Morrisons Supermarket, Halfords, Kirkstall Leisure Centre and Gotts Park golf course.

There is a bus stop adjacent to the development, with services to the city centre leaving every 20 minutes. National rail links are established in nearby Headingley Station, which is a walk away at 0.5 miles and serves the centre every 30 minutes.

The UK’s Number 1 Investment City

With a population in excess of 800,000, the Leeds economy is worth £18bn and has grown almost 40% over the last decade alone. Forming a key part of the 7bn Northern Powerhouse initiative, Leeds is the North’s business city. The city is home to 9 education institutions and boasts one of the UK’s largest student populations, with over 75,000 students.


The Times recently ranked Leeds University as one of the top 10 in the UK. The city boasts excellent transport links with its own airport – Leeds Bradford – welcoming over 4m passengers a year. Leeds Train Station is one of the busiest stations in the UK, serving nearly 30 million passengers a year.


Transports links will be even further improved when Leeds welcomes the much anticipated High Speed Rail 2. Leeds is also known as the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’, and is one of the Top 5 UK Retail and Tourism destinations with 26 million visitors annually.
