The seller told us:
“We originally bought 67 The Cricketers as a flat for one of our sons who was a student at the University of Leeds. Our youngest son who works in Leeds has lived there for the past few years also and has found the convenience of all the local shops and restaurants/takeaways, cinemas, gyms and sports facilities and entertainment a great bonus. We chose this particular flat because of its elevated position and long-distance views, which ensures plenty of natural light throughout the year and being elevated with an entry phone also added a further sense of security. We also wanted a dedicated parking place which we have at 67 with the undercroft parking. There are also lovely walks close at hand with Kirkstall Abbey nearby, which provides calm and respite from the hustle and bustle of working in the city. The development is very open compared to more recent flat developments with lots of parking space for visitors and well maintained and attractive grounds. Headingley train station is just two minutes walk away, providing a fast journey into Leeds City Station. The area benefits from its vibrant mix of restaurants, bars and shops and the whole area of Kirkstall and Headingley has improved over the years with investment in shopping and leisure facilities. Headingley Stadium is home to Yorkshire Cricket, Leeds Rhinos Rugby League and Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby Union, which along with all the other facilities brings a great positive energy to the area.”
Kristy Marsden, the negotiator at Moores who is handling this sale, says:
“With the Headingley train station entrance directly opposite, many people think of this location as Headingley rather than Kirkstall. The reality is that The Cricketers is halfway between the centres of Headingley and Kirkstall, yet benefit of an LS5 postcode. Compared to LS6, car and home insurance is a lot cheaper in LS5! There are also significantly fewer students in Kirkstall than in Headingley, and with ongoing redevelopment along the Kirkstall Valley, the benefit of being close to Kirkstall is becoming obvious. Kirkstall now has the M&S Food Hall, a number of new bars and restaurants, and the council is investing in cultural events around the Abbey, along with improvements by Yorkshire Water and the Canal Trust along the canal and river. These are adding to the pleasure of living in this superb location.”
From the centre of Headingley at the junction with the A660 Otley Road and North Lane, proceed along North Lane, continues into Kirkstall Lane at the traffic lights and continue straight through the next set of lights at the junction with Queenswood Drive. The Cricketers can then be found on the left opposite the entrance to Headingley train station. Flat 67 is to the left as you enter the development.A brief history of this area
