The Homes

The Homes

Our homes at Kirkstall Forge will offer spacious 12 ft high ceilings in living spaces, open staircases, roof lights and open plan living.

The contemporary homes offer a selection of gardens and private roof terraces on different floors to maximise views of the woodland, waterside and across the valley.

Our masterplan will offer homes for people who demand more, with high quality design, build and a strong emphasis on quality of life that shapes the vision of the brand new neighbourhood.

The masterplan

The masterplan

The 57 acre development sits 3.5 miles outside of Leeds and has been master-planned to include 1,050 houses and apartments, 400,000 sq ft of commercial, retail, leisure and a primary school.

Benefitting from the natural surroundings, the masterplan retains the wooded perimeter within the site for use as an exercise trail, connecting to existing woodland walks, and extending the river footpath. The scheme will also include a gym, playgrounds, an open meadow, and a bridge across the railway to connect to the fields and canal towpath beyond.

Location

The development is located 3.5 miles from Leeds City Centre and 7.7 miles from Bradford, both of which are easily accessed by train at the onsite railway station in six and 15 minutes respectively.

The opening of the Kirkstall Forge station in June 2016 has provided new access to the Leeds/Liverpool Canal towpath through the station, which is popular with walkers, cyclists and running clubs.
