Development opportunity! A superb opportunity to acquire a site with planning permission for two five bedroom detached homes in this highly prestigious street in Adel, North Leeds close to excellent commuter links to Leeds and Harrogate centres. An ideal opportunity for a developer or self build enthusiast wanting to create stylish contemporary family homes which are sure to sell well in the future. EPC - F


This is such a rare opportunity! North Leeds is renowned for its lack of development sites/opportunities and this scheme provides one of the most stylish and desirable we have seen for a considerable time! This listing is for the entire site, (anybody wanting to start from scratch and build their own dream home please do get in touch or see the other listing at £350,000). The planning reference for further details is 17/07416/fu.

The site currently houses a bungalow, planning permission is in place to demolish this and erect the two contemporary properties. Each property will be approximately 2461 sq ft and comprise a large open-plan living/dining kitchen space and two further reception rooms. The practicalities are covered with a generous utility room, guest w.C and useful integral garage. The bedrooms are particularly well planned and versatile with five double bedrooms spanning the next two floors and three bathrooms (two en-suite bedrooms). Flexibility can be taken advantage of with the design/detailing.

Once complete the landscaped gardens will provide generous parking to the front along with enclosed and level gardens which afford a good degree of privacy and will be of a good size, ideal for families.


Adel is a prime residential location with excellent access into Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, Otley, vibrant Headingley & Horsforth.
