Two former Yorkshire Water premises in Fulwood, Sheffield, were snapped up at auction.
The former filter house on Redmires Road sold for £98,000 and a former water treatment works at the same location sold for £85,000. Both were offered on the instructions of Keyland Developments Limited.
Tony Webber, of auctioneer Eddisons, said: “The fact that these lots attracted buyers is a clear indication of improved lending conditions and increased confidence.”
Eddisons reported that 112 of the 162 lots at their sales in Leeds and Manchester sold for more than £8.2m.
