Sir Thomas House - About The Central L1 Location

Sir Thomas is located within the L1 postcode - Liverpool's most sought area for property investment, and with its credentials it is not hard to see why.

Numerous studies, including a recent one by Which? placed the L1 postcode at the top of the tables due to soaring prices in the area, yet house prices remain modest - for now. With all the development in the area, it is becoming a more desirable location to reside in, for professionals and students alike. We have also listed L1 as an area we think is the best place to invest in property in 2017.

The appeal to students is only intensified by the redevelopment of the old Royal Mail sorting office at Copperas Hill into a new campus for Liverpool John Moores University - just half a mile from Sir Thomas. Sir Thomas House is already within a twenty-minute walking distance of the University of Liverpool campus, The School of Tropical Medicine and another Liverpool John Moores campus. Being so close to all of these campuses opens it up to a large student market, allowing for high occupancy rates.

What is perhaps one of the most appealing features of Sir Thomas is the value it gives students and investors alike. Modestly priced for its location, it also gives students excellent value for money with regards to living space and convenience. Similarly located developments that ask for the same weekly rent of 170, typically are sized at 18m2 compared to units at Sir Thomas that are sized from 21m2. Other studios in the area are of lower quality, or have a poorer design.

Sir Thomas House - The Building

Sir Thomas House is a beautiful period conversion building that has retained some of its original features to keep character, such as the original facade and arched windows. The studios boast floor - ceiling windows, allowing plenty of natural light and adding to the development's overall appeal.

The studios have been designed by award-winning SDA architects, and have cleverly separated the living, work and sleep space to give the feeling of a one-bedroom apartment. Just by looking at the studios, they feel of superior design and build compared to nearby developments.

The development also boasts an onsite gym, cinema room and social spaces for the use of residents, further adding to its appeal as research from Knight Frank has indicated that students are willing to pay more if their accommodation offers these premium features.
