The Development - Set in the heart of Leek’s historic Mill Quarter, and within easy distance of all Town Centre facilities, Albion Mill is believed to be the town’s first purpose-built silk mill.
Constructed in two phases, the 1820 block clearly expresses elegant Georgian grandeur, whereas the follow-on extension of 1887 has all the boldness and decorative detail of the high Victorian age.
Now designated a Listed Building of special historic and architectural importance, Albion Mill sits within a conservation area, a popular and genteel residential neighbourhood of 19th century weavers’ cottages, and grander Edwardian mill owners’ houses.
The property sits within the 1887 building and fronts Albion Street, with enclosed private garden space and allocated parking.
Albion Mill provides a life style-choice: an exciting integration of contemporary design and historic building elements, with great attention to the beauty and fascination of careful detailing and good craftsmanship and more – a flexibility to live in the house as you choose.
Developed to a high specification the radical conversion, going back to the brickwork envelope, has ensured all elements are to a high design standard and in accordance with modern building standards.
