Steven Burt has happily called Parkwood Mills in Huddersfield home for the last four years but admits: I never set out to buy an apartment. He had been interested in a house just down the road but spotted the development on his way home.
Parkwood is a sympathetic and very stylish conversion of the listed mills that form the heart of the historic Longwood conservation area.
Two of the six stone buildings have already been transformed and work is currently underway to restore the original mill lodge. There is a mix of one two and three bedrooms and the contrast of original features and modern comforts has attracted a range of buyers.
Steven moved north from Berkshire when he was 18. He said: I have lived in Leeds and Halifax but when I started looking for my own place decided on Huddersfield.
Longwood is like a hidden corner and I love it. He opted for a one bedroom corner apartment which has four windows giving great light to the living room and a covered balcony that makes a wonderful place to sit and relax.
The developer, the Manchester based PJ Livesey Group, specialises in the restoration of listed buildings and makes its own kitchens and fitted bedroom furniture.
Apartments at Parkwood currently offer just about the best value in the area with a one bedroom apartment like Stevens available for 106,950.
