STUDENTS will be living in luxury when they start university in the city.
The former Jubilee Nursing Home in Thornhill Crescent, has been turned into state-of-the-art student accommodation.
Akash Ghai and his business parter, Deepender Somal, bought the property and have spent more than £1million transforming it into modern rooms which cater for 39 students.
Akash said: “We already have some student accommodation in Sunderland and when we saw this property we knew it would be ideal.
“We wanted to provide something that Sunderland hasn’t had. It is a high quality development and a lovely location.”
All of the rooms in the accommodation are ensuite and it also boasts a games room with a pool table and there is also a movie room for the students to enjoy a film together on a big TV screen.
Akash said the development has gone really well and his company, Graysons Properties, is planning to carry out more similar projects in the future.
