The location of this development is fantastic. It is located less than 5 miles from Leeds city centre, and a mile and a half from cross gates. Asda is just across the A64, (5 minutes walking distance) with Tesco and Sainsburys less than a 10 minute drive. Cross gates offers some great bars and restaurants and is walkable. The development is located on the A64 in East Leeds with access to the main bus routes to the city centre. York is 20/30 minutes drive and the M1 A1 and M62 are all within a 10 minute drive. Everyone is allocated at least 1 parking space and generally parking next to your house for 1 or 2 extra cars is possible. Traffic noise from the A64 is barely detectable even living closest to the A64. Bin collections are done by LCC so are very regular.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The best points of living in this area is the location, value for money of the properties, transport links are excellent, and sense of community.
The few negatives are some anti social behaviour from neighbouring areas and local schools aren’t the best in Leeds
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
If you want to install smart home features like a doorbell etc, its not commonly known about needing a different transformer from the standard one installed. Also the front gardens are particularly shallow so cant dig down too deep. You also cant change the front of the property for 5 years.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
With Covid this last year i appreciate it has been difficult to solve problems and issues. I feel the fit and finish of the house was rushed at the end of 2 missed deadlines to get in the property. Snagging lists are still been sorted 2 and half years after moving in. Correspondence to emails take a lot of time to be responded to.
