The Saxon Gardens development is in Sherburn-in-Elmet, a large village in the Selby district of North Yorkshire but with a Leeds LS25 postcode.

It is close to the local amenities in Garforth and Micklefield, near to the stunning Lotherton Hall and just north of the RSPB Fairburn Ings nature reserve.

However, as well as being a charming village in a semi-rural location, the new development is also within 30 minutes drive of both major Yorkshire cities, making it perfect for people who want a cit within easy reach but a home that’s surrounded by countryside.

Redrow's Saxon Gardens development in Sherburn in Elmet is perfect for commuters to Leeds or York.

The village’s two train stations also help with this. Sherburn-in-Elmet station has services to York that take 17 minutes and South Milford Station gets commuters to Leeds in just over 20 minutes.

Steve Jackson, sales director at Redrow Yorkshire, says: “In a recent survey we carried out to discover what buyers want from their home post-lockdown, 64 per cent of respondents said private outdoor space was important, as well as bigger kitchens and excellent energy efficiency. Our homes at Saxon Gardens tick all of these boxes.

“Interestingly, 54% of Yorkshire respondents said they would still be working in an office at least some of the time when lockdown ends. This shows that while we want more space from our homes now, commutability to major employment hubs will still be important in the future.”
