If moving house is on your horizon, you won’t want to miss this beautiful blend of country life and city living.

Dream of suburban bliss in the countryside? It’s hard to leave the bright lights of Leeds, but there’s one brand spanking new development that might just make your decision that bit easier. Welcome to Headlands. This trio of high-spec homes, set in their own exclusive gated community in the pretty town of Mirfield, puts a whole new spin on idyllic country living.

Nestled between Dewsbury and Huddersfield, Mirfield has seen a boom over the last few years – and it’s easy to see why. With speedy transport links into Leeds and all the perks of a charming village, it’s a quintessential slice of the good life. Picturesque parks, boutique shops, independent bars and restaurants, supermarkets and good schools, it has it all. There’s even a cosy pub from Ossett Brewery and an annual beer festival – be still our beating heart!

With a vibrant community, green space galore and the scenic Calder and Hebble Navigation canal flowing right through the heart of town, Mirfield is a prime location. But let’s face it, while it’s great to have the perks of the great outdoors on your doorstep, you don’t want to wave goodbye to the city altogether. And you won’t have to, because Mirfield railway station whizzes you straight into Leeds in a mere 25 minutes for work or play. There are direct trains to London and Manchester too, plus it’s well-connected by road. You could say, it’s a commuter’s dream.

If you love the buzz of the city but long for pastoral bliss, setting up home in Mirfield is the ideal choice. But what good is a lovely location without the perfect pad in which to enjoy it? That’s where Headlands comes in. The first home available is an absolute doozy. Offering three double bedrooms, four bathrooms (two en-suite), open-plan living spaces, incredible fixtures, beautiful town views, private parking and some of the biggest statement windows you’ve ever seen, this 2,000 square foot beauty really is firing on all cylinders.

On each of the three floors you’ll find unique touches you simply wouldn’t get in your bog-standard townhouse. From the Juliette balcony in the first-floor bedroom (perfect for that morning whiff of fresh air) to the swish bathrooms fully tiled and artfully configured by Waterspace in Harrogate, this is a home where you’ll want for nothing. The state-of-the-art, Schüller kitchen on the ground floor is kitted out in style, with all your mod cons like Neff dishwasher, oven and fridge freezer already integrated.

But perhaps the greatest wow-factor comes from the abundance of natural light. How do they do it? By installing custom-made, floor-to-ceiling windows at every turn. Seriously, they’re so big they had to be specially constructed! The bedrooms, the kitchen and the living areas all have them, so this is your chance to banish doom and gloom forevermore. And if you want even more light in your life, the humungous sliding doors from the airy living/dining room take you straight out onto your very own private garden and patio, making it the ultimate indoor/outdoor entertaining space.

Headlands take socialising very seriously indeed. Not content with just one living area, they’ve added in a special treat downstairs – a whopping great 714 square foot bonus level, complete with a multi-purpose reception room you can turn into whatever you like. Always dreamt of having a home cinema? Family games room with pool table? Epic office space? The choice is entirely yours. And while it may be the lower ground floor, those clever designers still managed to integrate floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors that let light flood in and lead straight up to your lawned garden.

In fact, there’s very little their designers didn’t consider when dreaming up this brand new home. Underfloor heating in the lower and ground floors make keeping cosy and comfortable a stitch, while the ridiculously high levels of insulation boost the home’s eco-credentials and save you a pretty penny too. It’s got space in abundance and style in spades, but it’s so versatile that you can turn it into the home you’ve always dreamed of. Oh, and the bright lights of Leeds are ready and waiting whenever you want to pop back. Win-win.
