Former HQ of expanding Harrogate charity selling for £150k
2 Prospect Road

The Starbeck home of Wellspring Therapy and Training, the Harrogate mental health charity, is for sale with a guide price of £150,000.

Situated near Starbeck Station, 2 Prospect Road is being marketed by the Harrogate office of global property consultancy Knight Frank as premises ideal for conversion into two residential apartments.

Wellspring is relocating from Prospect Road to nearby premises in Knaresborough Road because of hugely increased demand for its services.

Daniel Rigg, partner and head of office at Knight Frank in Harrogate, said: “2 Prospect Road was originally a barbers and home, built around the turn of the century, which was converted into offices by Wellspring.

“But it is essentially a residential property and would easily convert into two smart apartments. That is what has happened next door.

“We are expecting a good deal of interest in the property. It is competitively priced in an excellent location, just a stone’s throw from Starbeck Railway Station on the York-Leeds line.

“The immediate area has undergone a renaissance with the conversion of the old Henry Peacock pub into a smart and successful mix of flats and retail outlets.

“Overall, the current 859 sq ft building would divide easily into two separate apartments each with their own private entrances. It is estimated that the newly formed apartments would have a combined internal floor area of circa 1,200 sq ft, provided the roof area was fully utilised.

“I believe it would make an excellent investment for a builder or developer to create two affordable, modern flats in an up-and-coming area.”
