IF AWARD-winning build quality, great kerb appeal and a location with the best of both worlds are top of the list when searching for a new home, house hunters should look no further than The Hawthorns, in Leeds.


Situated only five miles to the north east of Leeds city centre, just off the main A6120 ring road, The Hawthorns is a collection of three and four-bedroom homes from Redrow’s Heritage Collection.


“Despite being less prominent than some of our other Leeds developments, it’s been a consistently steady seller, largely due to its location,” Redrow’s Yorkshire sales director Steve Jackson explains.   “So much so that only 16 homes now remain, even though many people don’t even realise it’s there. We call it our best-kept secret!”


And it’s not just the homes that are notable, the Hawthorn’s site manager, Joe Ramsbottom, recently won an NHBC Seal of Excellence Award commending him on his exceptional contribution in creating homes of outstanding quality at The Hawthorns. Furthermore, this year Redrow secured the top Five Star rating from the Home Builders Federation (HBF), based on a survey of its customers in which more than 90% said they would recommend Redrow to a friend.


Current availability at The Hawthorns includes the Grantham, a three-storey, four-bedroom townhouse, as well as a number of two-storey traditional house styles such as The Shaftesbury.


Starting at £394,950 the detached Shaftesbury combines traditional craftsmanship on the outside with modern, open plan interiors.


The lounge runs the entire depth of the property to the left of the front door while a lovely hallway leads to a fantastic kitchen, dining and family area to the right.  There’s also a practical cloakroom and a utility to complete the downstairs accommodation.


Upstairs are four double bedrooms – the master of which has an en-suite shower room – and a family bathroom.


Steve Jackson adds: “The Hawthorns is home to a great selection of properties from our award-winning Heritage Collection. It enjoys a backdrop of mature woodland but is also just 20 minutes from the city centre by car. Among the final 15 homes are three Grantham townhouses, where buyers certainly get a lot of home for their money.”


Priced from £289,950, the Grantham 4 has a beautiful master suite on its top floor, including an en-suite with separate bath and shower cubicle. Bedroom two also has an en-suite shower room.


To help buyers move into a brand new home, Redrow has schemes available to provide assistance, including contributions to estate agent fees.


Redrow’s Help to Sell scheme is designed for those who have an existing home to sell. It makes moving quick and easy with Redrow aiming to sell your old home in four to six weeks.


First time buyers can also use the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme that means they could own their own home with as little as a 5% deposit. The Government will lend up to 20% of the value of the property through an equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years and can be repaid at any time within 25 years (or on the sale of the home, whichever is sooner).
