The contemporary abodes hitting the spot with Horsforth buyers

A house with 'kerb appeal' - the Abode 1000

A West Yorkshire estate agent has been singing the praises of a new homes development based less than two miles from his Horsforth office - and with just four homes left he’s urging buyers to act fast.

As part of a link up with Redrow Homes, Andrew Hardisty, founder and director of independent agent Hardisty and Co., has been working with the housebuilder on the sale of the final four properties at its Abode development on Low Hall Road in Horsforth Vale.

With just the two-bedroom Abode 1000 house style now available to buy, homebuyers need to act fast to get their hands on one.

“The Abode homes at Horsforth Vale have proved very popular and we have been delighted to work with Redrow on the sale of them locally,” says Andrew. “We’ve found that they have particularly appealed to professional couples or individuals and we’ve had interest for example from doctors and teachers, as well as staff from Leeds Bradford airport, which is not too far way.

“Some have plans to retain the property even if they move on with their job or go on to own a larger family home, as they recognise the high yield these properties could fetch in the rental market.

“Abode also appeals to downsizers and those who `lock up and leave’ to spend part of the year abroad. It’s a lovely place to live so we have buyers who want to use their Abode home as a base for walking, exploring and generally enjoying the area.

“They are properties offering the best of both worlds, affordable contemporary living and a quiet life, with beautiful countryside surrounding the development, yet within easy reach of both Leeds and Bradford and the north west motorway network.

“They are impressive homes, finished to a high specification – stylish and very modern. Both bedrooms in the Abode 1000 are generous sized doubles rooms, each with en-suite, with the master benefitting from a walk in wet room and fitted wardrobes.

“One of the features I particularly like is the modern grey finish to the windows and doors. It’s a touch that makes the properties stand out. I also like the brick and render mix to the exterior. They are homes with great `kerb appeal’ inside and out!” Andrew continued.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire) said: “In linking up with Hardisty’s, we have built a relationship that works well as we are able to complement our own sales activity with the added visibility of a high street presence and all the benefits that come with the traditional methods of home selling as well as additional social media activity via an agent.”

Priced from £279,950, The Abode 1000 puts the kitchen at the heart of the home in its large open plan ground floor. Clean lines and big windows help to create a sense of space and freedom normally only associated with a high end apartment. Under-floor heating adds to the uncluttered feeling, with all walls in play for furniture without having to make room for radiators.
