THE first new homes to be built in part of a Leeds village this millennium are to throw open their doors at an open day this month.

THE first new homes to be built in part of a Leeds village this millennium are to throw open their doors at an open day this month.

Developers have breathed new life into the site of the former Shadwell and District Social Club after it called last orders for the final time in 2014.

It has now been demolished and the land on Main Street transformed into a £2.5m collection of executive homes called Chapel View, close to the village’s grade II listed library.

Three of the five stone-built detached properties have already been sold – but the remaining two will be open for viewing between noon and 1pm on Saturday May 28.

This is the latest project to be completed by Leeds-based JWT Developments, who have been creating new-build properties in the city’s most sought-after locations for 12 years.

They are being marketed through the Roundhay branch of the North Leeds specialist residential sales and letting agents, Linley & Simpson.

Its valuations manager, Jeremy Bladon, said: “This is a rare opportunity to live in a brand new home right in the heart of the village, which still retains its community feel.

“There have been no other new-build properties within a half-mile area for over 16 years, and only two others within a mile radius.

“Both remaining properties are ready for moving into – buyers could be living there as soon as a month.”

The Oak is plot 4 on the development and this four-bedroom property is available for £494,950

The Yew is the neighbouring plot 5, a four-bedroom home priced at £549,450

Each house enjoys a large living kitchen with over 22 feet square of accommodation with Velux windows providing additional natural light to this hub of the home.

The dining kitchen in The Yew will have granite work surfaces, whilst The Oak has solid wood worktops, with utility rooms having textured work surfaces.

White goods to the kitchen include two fan assisted ovens, halogen hob, extractor hood, Integral style fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher, wine cooler and microwave oven.

The accommodation extends to a large sitting room with log burning stove and a study, providing a getaway from the main areas of the home.

Each property features gas fired central heating with underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor, and sealed unit A-rated double glazing.

There are gardens to the front and rear, with turfed lawns and a paved driveway leading to the attached single garage with an electric up-and-over door.

The village has two churches (the Church of England St Paul's, and Shadwell Methodist Chapel), a primary school, the Red Lion pub, the Village Hall, a tennis club, a golf club and a good selection of shops. There is also a cricket club and thriving scouts, cubs, beavers, guides and ranger groups.
