Take a look inside stunning new Leicester Flats
Stunning images of the Wullcomb, Leicester’s new £43 million apartment block have been released, giving us the first glimpse inside Leicester’s first purpose-built Build to Rent scheme.
Located opposite Highcross in Vaughan Way, the flats reveal stylish interiors and spacious living areas with luxurious touches.
Much of the inspiration behind the stylish design has come from Leicester’s rich industrial history. For example, a stylised knitted pattern can be found throughout the building, reflecting the heritage of the city’s hosiery and clothing manufacturing industry.
Tenants moving into one of the 297 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as the thoughtfully designed studios on offer, will also benefit from spacious modern kitchen and living areas and a luxurious bathroom suite. Open to customers later this summer, the homes come with furnished or unfurnished options, with those choosing the furnished option able to take full advantage of the designer’s vision.
Other features of the development include a cinema room, a shared living area called The Perch and a rooftop terrace with a wood-fired pizza oven, reflecting Way of Life’s drive to create a sense of community among its residents.
The scheme will be managed by Long Harbour’s in-house management company Way of Life. Managing Director Sowgol Zarinchang said:
“We wanted to create an interior that was edgy and fresh but wholly functional. The talented designers have tuned into the small details too, incorporating features that represent Leicester’s heritage.”
After exploring the buy-to-let market currently available in Leicester, the company is thrilled to have a presence in such a vibrant city.
Artistically designed on the outside too, thanks to Nottingham-based Franklin Ellis Architects, The Wullcomb is spread across five, seven, ten and twelve storey buildings.
Jon Crabb, the associate partner at Franklin Ellis Architects, said:
“We are very proud to be part of The Wullcomb development, which represents a significant investment in Leicester and sets a new benchmark for high quality city living accommodation.”
