Where to buy in Leeds
Leeds is an exciting, dynamic city with a vibrant centre and an array of surrounding suburbs which all have their own unique character. From popular areas of North Leeds to well-connected southern spots and of course the city centre itself, there are so many great choices if you’re wondering where to buy a house in Leeds.
One of the most desirable parts of the city centre to call home, buying a new home on the Leeds Waterfront is likely to prove a sound investment in both the long and short term. The area has seen huge amounts of regeneration since the early 2000s, and is known for its luxury apartments with great views. Expect top-notch bars, restaurants and cafes, not to mention all the shops you need and a whole host of cultural attractions within walking distance.
Extremely popular among young professionals, Chapel Allerton is also a great place for families searching where to buy in Leeds. The northern suburb is renowned for its independent shops, cafes, delis and restaurants, and is as close to a sure thing as it gets when it comes to investing in property in the Leeds area. There are great connections to the city centre to sweeten the deal, in addition to a selection of outstanding local schools.
More family-oriented than neighbouring Chapel Allerton, Adel has a rural feel thanks to the rolling countryside that opens up to the north. With lots of green spaces, including Bedquilts Recreation Ground, there are a number of local golf courses and a great choice of schools in the area too. It’s still an easy commute into the heart of Leeds, while independent business and a wide range of properties also contribute to this being a sought-after area.
Another place which has every chance of representing a sound investment, Headingley is Leeds’ student area. Packed with pubs, bars, restaurants, shops and other amenities, it’s a buzzing spot day and night. Home to famous cricket and rugby stadiums, this is a popular spot for young professionals who’ve perhaps studied at one of the city’s universities or are searching for a happening place to buy a home.
If you want to live on the outskirts of Leeds yet still retain easy access to the city centre and nearby Bradford, Guiseley could be the place for you. Next door to Yeadon and with Otely Chevin Forest Park and Ilkley Moor on your doorstep, the town opens up to swathes of open countryside which gives it a pleasant rural feel. It also has superb access to Leeds Bradford Airport for holidays and other trips abroad.
Over on the other side of the city, Morley is to the south of Leeds and boasts excellent transport links for getting around the local area and beyond. The market town has its own train station with regular services to Leeds taking just 10 minutes, while the M62 and M1 motorways also pass relatively close by. This provides easy access to a host of places in West Yorkshire and major northern cities such as Sheffield and Manchester, which are only around 40 and 50 minutes away respectively. Our St Andrew’s Place development on Bruntcliffe Road has proven extremely popular among people asking where to buy houses in Leeds.
Located 10 miles east of Leeds, Micklefield is a pleasant village which offers excellent access to the M1 and A1(M) motorways. A great place to live if you’re seeking a quieter, more relaxed pace of life while still retaining strong links both to Leeds and other parts of Yorkshire and beyond, don’t miss our Drovers Court development for a wonderful selection of 3 and 4 bedroom homes surrounded by open countryside.
