Listed Huddersfield building with ‘development potential’ selling at £1.25m

A Grade 2-listed building in Huddersfield with “development potential” has been brought to market at £1.25 million.

The Grade 2-listed Highfields in New North Road, the original Huddersfield College, is being sold by Kirklees College.

Highfields, which comprises two interlinked buildings covering 33,343 sq ft, most recently housed the college’s Drama, Music and Creative Arts department.

“The two interlinked buildings have amazing potential. They are capable of sub-division, each with their own on-site parking,” said Mike Dove, partner with Leeds-based property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips (DHP), who is advising Kirklees College.

“We believe Highfields will have multi-market appeal, with exciting residential, cultural and business uses. It has the winning combination of a contemporary ambience in a heritage setting.”

The Grade 2-listed building, which overlooks the A629 at its junction with Highfield Road, is only a short distance from Huddersfield Ring Road and close to Junction 24 of the M62.

The original Huddersfield College building is linked to a former residential property at the rear with a glazed area and access lifts.

Mr Dove added: “In summary, this is an amazing investment opportunity with development potential and we are expecting serious interest.”
