Duchy’s Ripon Road development fully-let

The Duchy of Lancaster’s £2million residential development in Harrogate is now fully occupied less than six months after its completion.

All 13 apartments at 11 Ripon Road have been let by Harrogate-based agents Linley & Simpson.

The development – which features the refurbished Victorian era Granville House, home to four apartments, and the new-build Villiers House with nine apartments – was finished in September with the first tenants moving in immediately.

Mike Andrews, head of commercial at the Duchy of Lancaster, said: “Ripon Road generated a high level of interest from the outset with a strong demand for viewings. The rental market in Harrogate is very competitive but these apartments have clearly captured people’s attention.”

Both buildings benefit from landscaped grounds and allocated parking spaces and have strong green credentials, with high performance double glazing, high efficiency and low emission boilers as well as LED lighting.a

The buildings have been named in honour of 19th century Duchy Chancellors, Sir Granville George Leveson-Gower and George Villiers, who strongly championed the growth of Harrogate as a fashionable spa town.
