The Luxury Student Accommodation in City Centre Sheffield

London Court Luxury Student Accommodation sold out in record time, and had the second highest enquiries of the student accommodation investments in the UK.

The construction of St Mary’s House Student Apartments, brought to you by the same developer as highly successful London Court. St Mary’s House is a refurbishment. Just across the street from London Court.

I just visited there last Friday with the developer. The renovation has started and will be complete for this September. The developer is only using the highest quality materials, taking care that students have a brilliant place to live in.

So not surprising he showed me where the gymnasium, computer room, pools room and games room are on the ground floor. He noted that other builders of student accommodations are too keen to use every square metre to maximise income at the expense of the comfort of the students. And he is correct!

He believes that it is critical to ensure the students are happy in their accommodation, and providing them with extra amenities is a must.

Plus the building will be air conditioned and there will be a LCD television in every room and high speed broadband. The developer is on good terms with his neighbours on the street, which is important when renovating one building and building another one just across the street!

We ate at the Middle East kebab place – food was delicious and keenly priced. There was lots of nice banter and goodwill between the proprietor and the developer.

St Mary’s Suites are ideally located next to Sheffield Hallam University and a 10 minute walk to the University of Sheffield. Indeed, I saw this for myself on my visit. St Marys is an area of Sheffield called ’China Town’ and diagonal from Sheffields which is in an iconic historical building.

I saw for myself that the build for London Court is well underway with the structure for five floors almost finished. It is on schedule to complete this August.

My colleague has already visited the St Mary’s House and London Court with the developer 5 times. Our buyers have really appreciated the hands on service we provide at Properties of the World.

Indeed, Susan C said ’Mike explained everything to me and told me everything I needed to do. He also went up to Sheffield to give me a tour with the developer. I just retired and this investment is part of my pension. So I need to ensure it is invested safely.’

You the Investor

What we love at Properties of the World is the developer’s straightforward approach to business and his commitment to delivering a student accommodation superior to almost all in the UK. The developer possesses lots of ’commercial nous’ with a portfolio of businesses and an established track record as a builder and developer.

Everything is built with cash and all his businesses are unencumbered, which protects, you the investor.

Why Sheffield?

England’s fourth-largest city, Sheffield, is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for students, playing host to over 58,000 domestic and overseas students. The University of Sheffield was named University of the Year 2011 at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards.

Student numbers are growing in Sheffield due to its prestigious reputation and culture. Student accommodation is limited and rental demand in the city is rapidly increasing.

It is a buzzing, alive and vibrant place to work, study or live with two major universities, the world renowned Crucible Theatre, home to so many international snooker tournaments.

Sheffield is the 4th largest city in England and is now well into a regeneration programme that is well deserved. It is already a thriving commercial centre with key functions within a number of multi-national businesses located in the city. Sheffield provides a vibrant lifestyle for those who live and work in the city, with leading theatres, a varied music scene and the beautiful Peak District National Park close at hand.

The developer took me to Kelham Island , an up and coming area to live in Sheffield. Wow, converted warehouses and buildings into flats and offices overlooking the small river and goit. Like in the city centre where St Mary’s House is, prices will soar. Finally, as Mike points out sport forms a large part of Sheffield’s fabric with two major football clubs, Wednesday and United, albeit both having seen better times. And who can forget that great Olympic and World heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis?

Student Life in Sheffield and St Mary’s House

St Mary’s House is located within walking distance of Sheffield City Centre and the railway station. They are also within walking distance of both the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam.

One of the most popular places to study in the UK, Sheffield is renowned for its eclectic nightlife, live music venues and good food. Both universities have active Students Unions and there are a multitude of amenities and venues in the immediate area, including cinemas, shopping centres and sporting arenas. Regularly reported as being one of the safest cities in the UK, there is no better place to live, work or study.
