West Yorkshire Home Search

There are two very different areas to focus on with your West Yorkshire home search, North Leeds and its surrounding areas and South Wakefield with its picturesque villages.

People focussing their West Yorkshire home search in the Leeds area may focus on the inner suburbs of Chapel Allerton and Roundhay in North Leeds as they have bustling areas of local shops, restaurants and bars and Roundhay Park plays host to the occasional concert during the summer. Further north, the suburb of Alwoodley has the choice of two of the top 100 golf courses with a mile of each other at Alwoodley Golf Club and Moortown Golf Club, home of the first Ryder Cup match on British soil in 1929.

Others concentrating their West Yorkshire home search further west may consider looking into the countryside. The town of Ilkley is favoured by the well-heeled and the world famous Betty’s Café and Tea Rooms are a honey-pot for visitors and locals alike. Close by, the town of Otley and villages of Addingham, Burley in Wharfedale and Menston are a fine starting point for a West Yorkshire property search.

A West Yorkshire home search in the south of the county, towards the Wakefied area, would be likely to involve prime villages such as Notton, Newmillerdam, Clayton West , Woolley, Denby Dale, Walton and Sandal. These picturesque areas all offer a rural lifestyle coupled with accessibility to the main motorway networks and also to ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ country at Holmfirth.

For a more urban West Yorkshire home search the obvious choice for many is Leeds. The city centre has seen an abundance of apartments built to enhance city living from high rise blocks in the very city centre to converted properties and smaller schemes in Alwoodley, Meanwood and Weetwood. Others may look at areas around Leeds University or Leeds Metropolitan University campus at Headingly for a residential property or investment property.
