Tenure: LeaseholdAbout Granary Wharf
The award winning Granary Wharf is fast becoming one of the most sought after locations for property in West Yorkshire. Situated in the heart of Leeds in a historic, tranquil waterside setting, Granary wharf is a beautiful location and one of the most dynamic communities in the city, providing an essential link to a number of high- profile regeneration projects, including Tower Works and Holbeck Urban Village. In addition, the construction of a keenly anticipated walkway will directly link Granary Wharf to Leeds Train Station, and is expected to open next year.
Granary Wharf is just a short walk from Leeds city centre and has some of the best shopping, dining and entertainment in the North, with a new walkway, ‘Waterman’s Bridge’, connecting the Wharf and the city centre. Added to this is the rejuvenation of the waterside being undertaken by ISIS, including the refurbishment of two graving docks for the repair of boats, together with new boater facilities. With its position on the historic Leeds-Liverpool Canal and River Aire, restoration of the waterside will herald a new golden age of this location with a contemporary twist.
The development itself is home to 282 luxury and well designed apartments, an award winning Double Tree by Hilton hotel, independent bars and upmarket restaurants which are all part of the ‘Buy to Live’ ethos creating a vibrant destination where people work, live and spend their free time. The long-term aim is for Granary Wharf to be a thriving waterside community, and the jewel in the crown of Leeds’s celebrated city centre.
Candle House represents a new standard of apartments in Leeds, with fittings of the highest specification, a considered approach to layout and intuitive design. Prospective owners are able to choose from an en-suite bathroom or walk-in wardrobe and the layout of each apartment varies; all contributing to the award winning Granary Wharf becoming one of the most sought after locations for property in Leeds.
The building glows with its elegant copper balconies and striking cylindrical shape, offering 160 studio, one-bed and two-bed apartments over 20 floors. Each spacious apartment offers fantastic views of the working waterfront, the vibrant city centre or luscious Yorkshire landscape beyond.
These city centre apartments offer the kind of space you would only expect to see in the suburbs. Smart interiors, spacious lay-outs and terrific views of the city skyline combine to create a truly special living environment.
Also Candle House takes the concept of blue-sky thinking one step further, incorporating a communal roof-top terrace which is now one of the most popular features of the development. Built on the twenty-first floor and residing at an impressive 75 metres above the ground, it is the highest garden of its kind in Leeds.
The decked garden features large glass windows which protect residents from the wind while allowing spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the Leeds city skyline.
Once you’ve made Candle House your home, you can sit and enjoy the views in the garden which has been fitted out with three coloured sheds along with hammocks, bean bags and funky garden seating in fuchsia, turquoise, lime green and black. There is also a range of plants decorating the space including bamboo, eucalyptus and euonymus (evergreen). The sheds will not only act as storage space, but are kitted out with tools and seeds for you to use to either add to the roof-top terrace – or create your own miniature private garden, as every one and two bed apartment features a balcony.

Property owners at Granary Wharf are not looking for a one-size-fits-all home; they enjoy choosing from a range of styles to suit their own individual taste. Similarly, our home-owners want as much flexibility as possible in buying their home.
At Granary Wharf, we have a wide range of purchasing options to suit most situations.
With NewBuy, the latest government-backed scheme, 95% mortgages are available at Candle House. Parents no longer need a hefty nest egg before they can help their children onto the property ladder and we’ve produced our own guide to help parents decide which option is best for them. Help to Buy is the government-backed shared equity scheme that gives 100% ownership to the purchaser. These options can lead to mortgage repayments that are less than the cost of renting. We have a fantastic team of Independent Financial Advisors and Solicitors on hand to assist all of our purchasers.
There are a number of different options for Mums and Dads to help their child onto the property ladder, to include a guarantor mortgage, jointly owned and a second home purchase. Please see the ISIS’s guide for parents for more information.
Shared equity Help to Buy scheme
The government-backed ‘Help to Buy’ shared equity scheme is available to first-time buyers at Granary Wharf, meaning a property could be yours with just a 5% deposit.
With Help to Buy:
• You don't need a big deposit... as little as 5%
• Your mortgage payments could be cheaper than renting.
• Unlike many shared ownership schemes you own 100% of the property.
The key facts are:
• Up to a 20% Equity Loan is offered from ISIS and The Home and Communities Agency
• Remaining 80% must be funded through a combination of mortgage and savings – usually borrowing 75% with a 5% deposit.
• The equity loan is interest free for the first 5 years
This is the latest government- backed scheme, which is available to all purchasers, enabling them to get a 95% mortgage.
• Allows the buyers of new build homes (Granary Wharf apartments) to get a 95% mortgage, so you only need a 5% deposit
• Open to all buyers – not just first time buyers
• Aimed at addressing the ‘deposit gap’, in which buyers have been unable to move because they cannot afford the large deposits that are so often required by many lenders
• The government have guaranteed the scheme
*Subject to availability, terms and conditions apply- available on all plots. Please contact the developer direct for more information
