The win-win situation: where to live next to your mates
So you missed out on all the big student houses in the January rush and now your squad is having to split up into separate houses next year. Nightmare! Well, we might just have the perfect solution to this stress-inducing situation. Pick pads that are right next door! Here are the top Parklane properties, with availability from July, where you can live right on your best mates’ doorstep (crisis averted!):  

5 Knowle Road and 18 Knowle Road, Burley

These two beauties are on opposite sides of the same street, in the bustling student neighbourhood that is Burley. Just think, it could be a boy house Vs girl house situation across the street (let the fun and games begin!). You’re six minutes from Burley Park station, within walking distance of all the universities, and most importantly, stonebaked pizza hangover cures are only two minutes away at El Faro pizza. And for when the sun shines, the park is just a few streets away (trust us, it’s quieter than Woodhouse Moor so you’ll always get a good spot).
