Former Garforth 'eyesore' transformed into £1m new homes development

An “eyesore” situated in east Leeds has been transformed into a £1m residential development.

Property developers have delivered a family homes scheme on the site of a demolished dairy depot and yard in Green Lane, Garforth.

Named Cricketers View – the homes overlook Garforth Parish Church Cricket Club – the development comprises four, 4-bedroom detached houses.

This project marks the first venture into residential property by the Leeds-based company, Volfortis.

Planners gave the go-ahead for the brownfield site’s redevelopment after hearing that the design and layout of the homes would “contribute in a positive vein to the visual amenity of it, and the character of the area as a whole”.

Priced between £245k and £315k, the collection is now being launched to market through the Roundhay and Wetherby offices of sales and letting agents Linley & Simpson.

Joseph Ullmann, director of Volfortis, said: “We are delighted at the way these homes have broken new ground for us as a developer, and create a strong platform to take forward other projects in the pipeline.

“Our new-build homes bring an injection of much-needed new housing to Garforth, whose popularity as a place to live and work continues to grow.”

He added: “One of the hallmarks of this inaugural development is the attention to detail. Wedded to an enhanced specification, it equips these family homes with quality fittings throughout.

“They are all energy efficient, compatible with the demands of modern living, and really provide flexible accommodation to suit most needs.”
