Homes to rent in Velvet Mill, Lister Mills, Bradford


Apartment 304 Velvet Mill is a 361 sq ft furnished studio apartment.
Available to rent at £320* per month (80% of market rent)


Velvet Mill

Velvet Mill is the second phase in the regeneration of the Grade II* Listed Lister Mills. Designed by David Morley Architects, the largest listed building in Bradford has been lovingly restored into 190 new homes and ground floor commercial spaces.

Bursting with original features, Velvet Mill combines the best of the old with the best of the new, and the new dramatic curved rooftop apartments will be a fine example of how combining old and new architecture can transform an already magnificent building into a modern day classic.

Velvet Mill has been carefully restored to make the most of the original features; high vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork, large windows and a stunning central atrium at the entrance.
Residents can make the most of the private courtyard or the beautiful Listers Park is just around the corner and with the Yorkshire Dales a short drive away, the great outdoors isn’t hard to find.

Once the world’s largest silk mill, Lister Mills is a stunning collection of Grade II* Listed mills and warehouses which dominate the Bradford skyline. When built, The Times proclaimed that the Mills were as ‘’breathtaking as Versailles’’ - to this day it still manages to take your breath away.

The regeneration of Lister Mills will create new homes, offices, retail and leisure space. Silk Warehouse which was completed in 2006 has created 131 new homes and the lower ground floor is home to Mind the Gap, a disabled performing arts charity, and Manningham Mills Community Centre which has its very own cafe; we would strongly recommend a visit!

Velvet Mill, Lister Mills is situated on Lillycroft road, a busy hub of the Manningham community, with plenty of eateries, cafes and local amenities.
Lister Mills is approximately 1.5 miles from Bradford city centre, served by regular bus services and a short walk from Frizinghall train station with direct links to Bradford and Leeds.

There are many ways to live at Velvet Mill and working together with the Homes and Communities Agency we can now offer you the opportunity to rent while you save for a deposit (through Rent to HomeBuy) or even buy your own Funky & Affordable home through shared ownership.

Same funky apartment with everything you would expect from an Urban Splash home ….but more affordable if you can’t quite manage to buy outright just yet.


Am I eligible?

The good news is that it’s available to a really broad audience, the main criteria being that:

- You/your household has an annual income of less than £60,000 (Let’s face it, who doesn’t!)
- You are in full time employment
- You currently own no other properties

I want to rent now while I save for a deposit

If you would like to own your own home but don't have enough deposit saved, you can rent your home for up to five years through the Rent to HomeBuy scheme at 80% of market rent, allowing you to save for your deposit whilst you enjoy living in your home. You can move into home ownership at any point during the five year period.
