Anyone who’s lived in, or even visited Saltaire will remember the Spa village shop.
Found on Titus street in the heart of the village, it was a seemingly permanent fixture of the community with well over a hundred years of history.
However, after many years of running the village shop, the most recent owners decided that it was time to take their well-earned retirement.
Since then, it’s been bought by property developers and has been carefully transformed into a spectacularly well designed home.
In this post, we’re sharing what JI Estates, the estate agent selling the property has to say about it, as well as the wonderful photography which shows the scale of the skilfully executed renovation.
Here’s how they describe the renovated home:
We are pleased to offer for sale this fantastic Grade II Listed ‘Titus Salt’ three-bedroom end terraced cottage. Located on this highly sought after position in the World Heritage Site and Conservation Area of Saltaire Village on the street that Sir Titus Salt named after himself.
The property is well placed for an excellent range of amenities including shops, cafés, bars and restaurants on Victoria Road and Bingley Road. Salts Mill, leisure facilities including Roberts Park and fantastic transport links are nearby. Saltaire railway station is approximately a five minute walk and provides direct and regular access to both Leeds and Bradford City Centre.
Steeped in history, 21 Titus Street for many years (along with the neighbouring property) formed part of the village Spa Shop, which operated as a confectioners and then a convenience shop serving the residents of Saltaire since around 1900.
The two properties have more recently been thoughtfully converted back into two dwellings (as it was first built) and this one provides fantastic spacious newly renovated accommodation of which is worthy of a full internal viewing to a ready buyer.
This property is truly a one-off in terms of the dwellings in Saltaire, offering extended accommodation like no other. A stunning, sizeable open plan living, dining area and kitchen with large picture window offers a flexible space which is a rare find within the village due to conservation rules. The nature of this space, we feel could be adapted to provide perhaps an office/working environment or possible commercial use, subject to the necessary permissions or change of use.
