Aspen Park provides perfect property collection for first-time buyers
Choosing a first home can prove tricky, with buyers sometimes stuck between the decision of city living or a less urban way of life.
But Aspen Park development in Garforth provides a perfect solution - offering a great village location and close-knit community, while being situated less than 10 miles from Leeds city centre and under 20 miles from York.
“It solves any dilemma straight away,”says Steve Jackson, sales director for Yorkshire. “Aspen Park is superbly placed, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet with it easily accessible by road and rail.
“It means that whether you want a more rural way of life and to commute to, say, your workplace in Leeds, or you want a more peaceful home life but still to be close to the city and all the amenities and nightlife it offers, it’s ideal.
“And it certainly appears to providing the answers for many younger homeowners and those stepping on to the property ladder for the first time,” adds Steve, “with 58% of our purchasers at Aspen Park having been 35 or under and 41% or customers are first-time buyers.”
The new figures also revealed 24% of people who’ve secured a home at Aspen Park are single and 40% are couples, while 26% of buyers here are families and circa 10% empty nesters.
“It’s possibly a sign that the younger demographic is tiring of city centre life and wants a more relaxed pace – but not too far from the action. Or perhaps they have one eye on the future and want to feather their nest now for when children come along later,”Steve continues.
“Whatever the reason, our range of property styles is attractive with something for everyone, whatever their wishes or needs. And Garforth prices are particularly appealing for those just stepping onto the housing ladder, especially when compared to sought-after districts of Leeds like Horsforth, Far Headingley and Roundhay.”
There is a wide variety of house styles from our Georgian-inspired Regent Collection, with two, three and four-bedroom homes set across two and three floors.
Prices start from £243,950 for the two-bedroom Cadogan, which has an open plan kitchen/dining area and spacious living room on the ground floor, and two double bedrooms upstairs, each with their own en-suite.
Larger homes include the four-bedroom Montpellier, a semi-detached townhouse – more of which are being released soon – which has a large kitchen and dining area on the ground floor, as well as a spacious lounge and cloakroom, while on the first floor are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a second bathroom, offering space for growing families (often allowing older children more privacy) or flexible living with extra rooms that can be adapted by those who want a personal gym or a home office.
Aspen Park is situated to the east of Leeds with a host of leisure and retail amenities close by, along with ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ schools within a short walk. East Garforth train station is nearby serving Leeds and York, and the M1 and A1 are both easily reached, making it an excellent base for commuters.
