If you’re looking for a home that will hold a lifetime of memories, why not buy something brand new?

When it comes to forever homes, you know it when you see it – and just wait until you see these new build developments! They’re designed for living, built from scratch and personalised to your individual needs. From bustling suburbs to sleepy villages, open-plan living spaces to private lounges, there’s something for everyone here, so prepare to fall head over heels.

Scandi-style homes in Horsforth

Horsforth is one of the most popular suburbs in Leeds – and it’s easy to see why. Cool independent eateries, lively pubs and quirky stores come together to create a lifestyle that feels more city centre than suburb. Add an easy commute, with a train station on your doorstep, and good schools aplenty for an easy family base you’ll want to settle down in.

And if you’re wondering where to move, Strata has the answer, in the form of Entice, a new development, just off the ring road. Here, a cluster of 48 contemporary, Scandi-inspired homes await. All two-beds, all perfect for new families. The ground floor is dedicated to a downstairs bedroom, complete with shower room, while the first floor promises an open plan kitchen and living space and the second offers a master bed with ensuite.

Modern new builds in Seacroft

Nestled in East Leeds, just 4 miles from the city centre, Seacroft offers all the convenience of the city, in a suburban setting. You’ve got supermarkets on your doorstep, Primrose Valley Park just one mile away, with its tennis and football pitches, and Roundhay Park another two miles away, with 700 acres of luscious parkland to explore.

And this is the setting for Timeless, the latest development from Keepmoat Homes. Their two, three and four bed homes are designed for living. Downstairs, there’s a kitchen-diner with a separate lounge to create two distinct social spaces, while upstairs, bedrooms are split over one or two floors to cater for new and growing families. Outdoor space is a priority here, with French doors leading out to a private garden, perfect for play.

Energy-efficient homes in Pudsey

Pudsey is one of the city’s most up and coming areas. The train station makes commuting a dream, and puts the bright lights of the city within easy reach, but you’ll have an ever-growing list of bars, restaurants and shops just within walking distance too. There are a number of good and outstanding rated schools here, making this the perfect choice for families.

South Park Place is the latest development from Mandale Homes. They have a selection of three, four and five bed houses, with layouts to suit your lifestyle. Downstairs, the open-plan kitchen diner opens out onto the garden, while the separate lounge looks out on the street. Upstairs, one or two floors of bedrooms await, including a master with ensuite. All their homes are energy-efficient and come with loads of personalisation options.

Contemporary homes in Garforth

If you want to swap city life for village life, without moving too far from what you know, Garforth is a great choice. It’s 7.5 miles east of the city centre, with a train station for a convenient 10-minute commute into work, and has the quaint feel of a country town. You’ll find everything you need nearby, from supermarkets and restaurants to schools and sports clubs.

Here, you’ll find Silverwood, the newest build from Charles Church. They’ve created a vibrant neighbourhood with a collection of two, three and four bedroom homes. They all boast ground floor kitchen-diners with a separate living room, but some have integral garages and others dedicated family space. Upstairs, bedrooms are spread across the first floor, with a mix of family and ensuite bathrooms.

Community and countryside are the big draws here, with outstanding schools and a medley of bars, restaurants and shops in nearby Garforth.

In the heart of this amazing rural location, you’ll find Drovers Court, the new development from Barratt Homes. Their three and four bedroom houses come in all shapes and sizes, with different designs to suit different lifestyles. Want an open-plan living space? You got it. Prefer a separate dining room? No problem. Need space for a growing family? There’s a home to suit. Outdoor space is a given here and there’s even a play area for the kids.
