If you’ve ever imagined owning your own chic and stylish property, now is your chance – but you’ll need to move fast to get the keys to a dream designer home in Horsforth.

Award-winning house builder Redrow has announced the last six remaining houses from its Abode contemporary collection in Horsforth Vale, among them one of its expertly designed show home.

Lucky purchasers could get the keys to the ‘Abode 1000’ semi-detached show home, which has two en-suite bedrooms. The property comes fully furnished, boasts a stunning and select décor and includes landscaped garden, with every element designed by professionals.

Those who prefer to put their own stamp on a property have a choice of new homes too.

“Either way, these homes are trendsetters,” said Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire). “Our Abode collection displays an ‘uncluttered’ but smart façade, along with a chic boutique-style interior design.”

The two and three-bedroom homes boast wide open living spaces – virtually all of the ground floor is open plan – and include features such as wet rooms, underfloor heating and cleverly concealed storage which creates faux walls.

“They are ideal for young professionals, families or active downsizers, in fact, anyone who wants to live in a stunning home with a more contemporary design and sociable living spaces that are great for entertaining,” Patsy added.

Rebecca Hardy, 23, who purchased a two-bedroom Abode property with her partner Adam Copeland, said: “We love the high specification of the Abode homes, especially the underfloor heating downstairs, which will be lovely and cosy in winter, and all the integrated appliances in the kitchen. Everything was there so we could just move in, so it's ideal for first time buyers like us.”

Former teacher Julie Fogg, 50, who’s bought a three-bedroom style with her husband Roger, had other priorities: “We loved the layout of this house, the open plan, the fact that it was so modern and the walk-in shower rooms upstairs. It just seemed so much more practical.”

Due to its popularity, Abode at Horsforth Vale is now down to the last seven available properties.

The West Yorkshire development lies about six miles from Leeds city centre and good transport links make the location ideal for commuters. There’s a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants in Horsforth itself – an area that was named as one of the best places to live in the UK by the Sunday Times earlier this year.

Current prices start from £279,950 for a two-bedroom home – and there is also the option of the Help to Buy scheme, with a government backed equity loan of up to 20% of the property’s value, interest free for five years, and the chance to put down just 5% deposit.

The 1000 show home is on the market for £294,950, with professional design, décor and furniture all include.
