    Lister Mills penthouses now available to buy and rent; seventh floor views will give customers unbeatable vistas

    18 January 2019

    Award winning regeneration company Urban Splash has unveiled 30 new penthouses at Velvet Mill in Manningham this week, the finishing residential touches to the Grade II Listed Lister Mills scheme. The company has also unveiled a new show apartment for customers wanting to visit the homes on offer.

    Located on the rooftop of Velvet Mill, the breathtaking designs are in contrast to the brick fabric of the original building – bringing a new aesthetic to Bradford’s skyline; silver, zinc-clad structures, they stand on the seventh storey, meaning that occupiers will have some of the best views in the local area.

    The two-bedroom homes, which are available for sale and rent, boast impressive living space and full height floor-to-ceiling glazing; Guy Ackernley from Urban Splash explains: “Throughout our restoration of both Velvet Mill and Silk Warehouse, we worked hard to ensure contemporary aesthetics sat well against the building’s original fabric; the pods are a great addition, a nice design juxtaposition and are going to be a wonderful place to live.

    “We’ve saved the best ‘til last with these homes and I’m delighted we can now open the doors for the first time; we’re welcoming future residents to view now – including our stunning show apartment which provides a completed vision - and each penthouse will be available to move into straight away.”

    Lister Mills comprises Velvet Mill and Silk Warehouse – two of the most beautiful buildings in Bradford with an enviable location just three minutes walk from Lister Park – home to Cartwright Hall and the new David Hockney Gallery. There’s also a boating lake, bowls green, tennis courts, a café, Bradford Park Run as well as a great selection of local shops, a post office, numerous gyms and plenty of places to dine out and socialise – all advantages for occupiers in the coming weeks.

    The homes also benefit from great connectivity, with two city centre train stations offering direct routes to Leeds and Manchester, as well as London Kings Cross four times a day.
