The seller told us:
“I chose this property over any others I viewed because the key rooms had recently been renovated and therefore it was ready to move into, right away. I thought it represented good value, especially as the kitchen was very modern. I had rented in the area for a number of years and didn’t want to move away when buying as the area is relatively close to the city centre for work but without the city centre feel.
There are great amenities nearby (it’s a 5 minute walk to the shops, a cinema, gyms, etc and there are a couple of schools around the corner), and it is a nice area for young professionals and families. In the last few years we’ve seen a number of new restaurants and bars appear on Kirkstall Road – the area is definitely ‘up and coming’! The neighbours are great, many have lived there for decades. Every year there’s a street party. There’s a real community spirit.
Since I’ve owned the house, I’ve added a large shed/garage in the rear garden, improved the ventilation in the loft and the bathroom, and I’ve redecorated some of the rooms. I created a dedicated office, which was perfect for me to work from home!”
Michael Davies, a Director at Moores looking after this sale, says:
“Burley is a very popular area now, especially for young families. The amenities along the Kirkstall Valley are some of the best in Leeds for local residents, whether it’s a trip to the Vue Cinema or Hollywood Bowl, a meal out at Nando’s or one of the many other eateries, 9 holes of golf at City Golf, or a regular visit to one of the many gyms that are now in the area – everything is within walking distance. For more cultural activities, Kirkstall Abbey and the museum are 10 minutes’ walk away, and less than a mile away is the Armley Mills Industrial Museum.
Families are particularly keen on the primary schools in the area. They have had such good ratings over the past few years, places are now highly sought-after. Beecroft, for example, was declared ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED.
This part of Burley is less than 3 miles from town making commuting quick and convenient by car, public transport or pushbike, especially now there is the dedicated bike lane along the A65 into town. The Headingley train station is within walking distance and Leeds Bradford Airport is less than 7 miles away, a short taxi ride when holidaying or having to work abroad. I’m struggling to think of the negatives!”
From the junction of the A65 Kirkstall Road, Abbey Road and Kirkstall Lane by Morrisons and the Kirkstall Sports Centre proceed east along the A65 towards Leeds. After approximately a quarter of a mile turn left opposite the Riverside Filling Station/Spar Minimarket into Woodside Place. As you approach the Leeds Motor Company on the right, turn left into Woodside View. Take the next left into Burley Wood Crescent and as you approach the crescent turn right where No.151 can be found on the right-hand side.
