The seller told us:
“This was one of the few detached properties and by far the largest that fit my criteria when I was looking for a home in the area, and although the neighbouring train track was an initial concern, this is a no-through road with very little traffic making the street really nice and quiet. Everything is within 2 to 10 minutes walk from the house – bus stops, church and primary school are a couple of minutes walk, with the train station being 10 minutes away to be safe (and allow time to get a ticket) – although I make it in 4 minutes flat if I hurry! Some of the events held at nearby Kirkstall Abbey have been great: I’ve seen everything from the Kaiser Chiefs to Shakespeare In The Park, and the annual Kirkstall Festival really brings the area to life. The neighbours here are brilliant. It’s a good mix of families and young professionals, with a very peaceful, friendly, atmosphere. We have new neighbours in the street who only moved from a smaller house a few streets away. Although modernised, the house maintains some nice period features, but my brand new kitchen with a range cooker has made cooking an absolute dream. The living room has a top-of-the-range Burley multi-fuel wood burning stove which has kept the house glowing throughout many cold winters. The garden has been landscaped to provide one large gravel area creating a usable space for BBQs and garden furniture, with decking to the rear: as a professional person it’s perfect for me, being very low maintenance.”
Kristy Marsden, one of Moores Sales Negotiators, says:
“Kirkstall is now very fashionable with some great local amenities. The nearby Headingley train station is a few minutes walk away, and with excellent bus routes into Leeds, and nearby proximity to the outer ring road, getting to and from work, or getting the kids to school is easy. Our client has said that having Kirkstall Abbey, Becketts Park and various allotments nearby gives a sense of being much further out of the city than he actually is. I must say it’s surprising how much green space is on the doorstep of this property, despite it being a 12 minute journey into Leeds city centre (outside rush hour of course!). It seems to provide a good balance for city living with outdoor space. Moores Estate Agents have sold a lot of property in Kirkstall over the years, and buyers can see the area possesses a delightful sense of community: local groups are involved with the council in ensuring there are live concerts at the Abbey, along with farmers markets, and a host of local groups and classes in nearby St Stephens Church, just one minute’s walk down the road. There are plans for further development and enhancement of the Kirkstall Valley, which will raise the profile of the area going forward (no doubt, along with raising house prices!). The beauty of this property is that positioned on the boundary of Kirkstall and Headingley, with the train line protecting the location, this will remain a quiet and peaceful backwater well into the future.”
From the junction of the A65 Kirkstall Road and Kirkstall Lane, by the sports centre and Morrisons supermarket complex, proceed north up Kirkstall Lane towards Headingley and turn left at the crossroads/traffic lights into Morris Lane. Continue along Morris Lane and after approximately 400 metres turn right up Park Mount. Take the next left, onto Hesketh Road and Hesketh Avenue can be found on the right-hand side.A brief history of this area
