FOR sun worshippers, this is the penthouse balcony in the heart of Leeds that puts all the others in the shade.

Measuring 46ft in one direction and 36ft in the other, the rooftop terrace lays claim to be the biggest in the city centre.

And now, for the first time in 13 years, the perfect place to “lie in the sky” is for sale.

The two-bedroomed, top-floor apartment at Britannia House is on the market for £250,000 through the Swinegate office of residential sales and letting specialists Linley & Simpson.

“This very individualised and contemporary apartment boasts probably the largest privately owned terrace in Leeds city centre - a huge 700 sq ft potential city garden,” said Andy Bonner, sales manager.

“It occupies a north, east, partly south, and west facing position, ideal for sun worshipers, and commands great aerial views over some of Leeds’ best known landmarks. Dominated by floor to ceiling windows, standing back you get a great view of this apartment and its extensive glazing - an architect’s pride and joy no doubt.”

Britannia House is a former Art Deco warehouse, located on a quiet corner of Britannia Street and York Place. It has been carefully converted into a variety of apartments. The apartment features spacious open plan living area offering a recessed kitchen, with all mod cons, including oven, hob, fridge and freezer.

The lounge/diner gives access to the flagged terrace.

Off the large hallway is a contemporary house bathroom, 2 double bedrooms, both with huge floor to ceiling windows, and terrace access from the master bedroom.
