South Park Place
Location-wise, South Park Place is a winner. It gives you the best of both worlds. On the one hand, you’re surrounded by rolling fields, but on the other, you’re mere minutes from a bustling suburb with a smorgasbord of shops, restaurants, pubs and markets. There’s a choice of good and outstanding schools nearby, and Leeds is just 12 minutes away by train.
Which brings us to South Park Place. It’s the latest development from Mandale Homes and promises a new neighbourhood of 21 houses. These three, four and five bed homes are kitted out with Air Source Heat Pumps that make them super energy efficient. They offer a range of layouts to suit your lifestyle, whether you want an integrated garage or master suite that comes complete with its own dressing room. Shared family spaces make it easy to spend time together, but with rooms aplenty, you can get privacy too.
