The east of Leeds enduring popularity is based around its ease of access to the city, the city's historic park lands and the countryside beyond. A selection of M1 junctions shortens journey times for traveling further afield. The Cross Gates railway station proves popular for travelers to both York and Leeds and beyond from the coast to Manchester Airport.

It contains a diverse range of property types from turn of the century Victorian homes, through mid war bungalows and post war family homes right up to recently built homes. Value for money is a big draw with buyers deciding the amenities, schools, commuting sit comfortably with the prices asked. The rental market mirrors this, particularly because of the selection of schools available.

Killingbeck is our most popular area for young professionals, snapping up recently built apartments and homes with Whitkirk, Whinmoor and Swarcliffe attracting emerging families. Whitkirk, Crossgates and Pendas Fields also attract maturing buyers as do the stylish homes closer to the great parks in Temple Newsam and Roundhay. Village life is also a draw for a wide range of buyers taking up residence in Scholes and Barwick in Elmet just beyond the city edge. Our wide range of single level living bungalows provide a choice of walk to shops, walk to countryside and village based for all ages. And Colton - the village in the city - attracts those want equally easy access to commuter routes, historic park lands and retail therapy. House prices as you can imagine range from £70,000 to £500,000 with £125,000 to £250,00 being the most popular.

Temple Newsam in eastern Leeds was built in 1521 by Thomas, Lord Darcy but was swallowed up by the expanding suburbs of Leeds in more recent centuries. Lord Darnley, who later married Mary Queen of Scots was born in this house. The parkland surrounding Temple Newsam was laid out by Capability Brown in the eighteenth century.

Many of our home owners are multi generational, with children buying close to their parents. Your Move manager Sandra Feugill says this makes the shopping area a hive of conversation and catch up between friends, many of which know us from their home search. We also attract home movers to Leeds to the area and they are so surprised at the number of green spaces, made easier to spot now we have Google maps, as well as the 1000s of acres of historic parkland which can be enjoyed for free and is less than 15 mins drive from many homes.

New home owners and tenants have come to us for many reasons and some have been very specific. Would you also like to live in a street called Tranquility or a village with a maypole mentioned in the dooms day book or on the site of a former tank factory.

Amongst the most sought after addresses are Park Avenue in Cross Gates, Park Road in Colton, Temple Avenue close to Temple Newsam park, Elmete Drive close to Roundhay Park and properties in Barwick in Elmet.

Renting is a great way to get to know the area. We have a wide range of property types including 2 bed apartments, modern townhouses and bungalows in the £550 to £650 pcm bracket. Larger detached or 4 bedroom homes range from £800 to £1000 and most spacious and stylish fall into the £1000 to £1500 pcm level.

Shopping & food couldn't be more varied. We have 3 large retail parks which cover the ASDA, Sainsburys, Tesco and B & Q type outlets surrounded by other high street retailers and fast food outlets. At another end of the spectrum independent food retailers such International foods, with different aisles for different countries in the world, to a fish and chip shop established in 1922 and the multi award winning Wilson Pork Pie, you can now get a wedding cake version.
