IF a change of scenery is on the cards; and relocating out of the city centre to somewhere closer to open space but still with amenities on the doorstep is important, then look no further than The Point at Thorpe Park Leeds.


Located close enough to Leeds city centre (six miles) for commuters and with lots of amenities close by, Redrow’s The Point at Thorpe Park could be the ideal place to settle down.


Thorpe Park will give residents access to 140 acres of open spaces and parkland and it’s also within walking distance of the retail, commercial and leisure area that is already a hub for brand-name stores – including an M&S Food for groceries – eateries and a state of the art cinema.


Steve Jackson, sales director at Redrow Yorkshire says: “Post-lockdown, buyers preferences have shifted. Those who now work from home on a frequent basis want homes that offer the option to have dedicated office space and fast broadband.


“Homes with private garden space are also up there on wish-lists together with having green space nearby. In fact, in a recent survey, we found that 35% of respondents listed proximity to open green space as a top feature. We’ve got this covered at Thorpe Park as it offers acres and acres of green space.”


And for those whose work is still largely office based, commuters are catered for too. The development lies just off junction 46 of the M1, making commuting by car simple. The A1 and the Leeds Ring Road are both within easy reach.

There are also plans for a brand-new railway station, due for completion in 2024* which will take commuters to Leeds and York. However, in the meantime Cross Gates Station is just a short drive away, offering trains into the heart of the city in just seven minutes and direct to York in as little as 18 minutes.


Steve adds: “Thorpe Park is an all-round destination; homes, shops, plenty of green space and great connections to the wider area. Who wouldn’t want to live here? It gives residents the ease of access to lots of things, similar to living in a city centre but with a more relaxed pace.”


Homes currently available at The Point, one of two Redrow outlets at Thorpe Park, include the two-bedroom Alwoodley apartments that start from £199,950. The three-bedroom semi-detached Yeadon is priced from £299,950 and for those who may need a bit more space, there is the four-bedroom three-storey Oakwood that starts from £314,950.


The four-bedroom Oakwood townhouse has a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and family room that overlooks a private garden, plus a handy cloakroom and laundry space.  The lounge is found on the first floor, with elevated views of the garden, alongside a double bedroom with en-suite and another cloakroom. And the top floor is home to a further three bedrooms (one could easily be used as a home office) and two more bathrooms, one en-suite.


Steve continues: “The first of the Oakwoods will be ready to move into in December this year so not only does this mean buyers don’t have to wait around for their home to be ready but they could end 2020 on a high. It also means that Help to Buy and the Stamp Duty holiday can potentially be used too which could save buyers thousands.”


The sales centre and Roundhay show home are open to walk-in customers but Redrow recommends that people pre-book by telephone or through the website. Visit www.redrow.co.uk/thorpepark or call 0113 537 4487 for further information.
