National homebuilder Bellway has unveiled its vision for new build housing by launching a range of house types at its Crossgates development, The Limes.

One of the main features which predominates the design of the houses is reflected in the trend of creating a social space inside the house, thereby allowing individuals to come together.

Housebuilding, it would seem, can sometimes be a mirror to cultural changes.

The new releases, which combine fresh design ideas with eco-friendly building techniques, will be officially launched at the site’s show village this autumn, which will showcase four of brand new house types.

Epitomising Bellway’s vision for modern day living, each new contemporary home is specifically designed to tailor to families, with ample space a key feature throughout.

Melanie Smith, Bellway Yorkshire’s sales manager said the new house designs had been influenced by a change in culture, with more people now wanting shared living spaces, rather than individual boxed-off rooms.

She said: “These new homes are all designed to meet the demands of modern living – they are spacious, airy and provide the kind of flexibility people want from their homes.

“It is no secret that over the past few years open space has become favoured by many, with people sacrificing separate rooms for that desired social space. With this in mind, we have precisely planned the interior of each home.”

The layouts in our new house designs are not only practical but also give flow to each home. The standard formal living room is now accompanied with a separate kitchen that comprises of added dining and living space, with French doors leading in to a private garden.

“The houses at The Limes, as with all our homes, are built to extremely high standards and make use of the latest building techniques and materials to ensure they deliver truly green living,” added Melanie.

Bellway are also offering potential homebuyers the opportunity to tailor make their own home by offering a comprehensive range of extras which allows buyers to add and change home fixtures and fittings to personalise their new home to suit their own tastes.

The Limes is located just of Manston Lane in Crossgates. It is within easy reach of both Leeds city centre, and the numerous local facilities in Crossgates, which include schools, The Arndale Shopping Centre, a host of high street retailers and the new upcoming Thorpe Park project.

In addition, it is within easy reach of semi-rural villages such as Thorner, Scholes and Barwick-in-Elmet, not to mention being close to the edge of the Leeds conurbation and is an ideal base to get into the surrounding countryside.
