Join a friendly community just minutes from Leeds
In the active town of Garforth, 7.5 miles west of bustling and dynamic Leeds, our new Silverwood development presents a range of new two, three, four and five-bedroom properties in a location that will appeal to a wide range of buyers.
Popular with families and commuters, Garforth is a charming suburb of Leeds with a real sense of community. Living at Silverwood you’ll benefit from the town’s main street (home to a great range of essential services and independent businesses), supermarkets, restaurants, sports clubs, schools and train station. There really is everything you need for day-to-day living – but if you do fancy a shopping spree or evening of entertainment, the bright lights of Leeds are just a 10-minute train journey away.
As part of the development, Charles Church will be making contributions to local transport networks, education facilities, open spaces and health facilities.
Silverwood is situated on the southern border of Garforth, meaning you’ll be perfectly positioned to take advantage of the many shops and amenities in the area. A 15-minute walk will take you to the town centre, where you can support local businesses or meet for a drink with friends, while the Springs Retail Park - home to a number of high street shops, popular eateries, a cinema and crazy golf course – is just 2 miles away. Garforth’s main supermarkets are a Tesco and Lidl, or you can shop local at the lovely Willow Park Farm Shop.
Families will thrive in Garforth, thanks in part to the excellent schools in the area. There are five primary schools, of which St Benedict’s Catholic School is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and the rest are all ‘Good’. Older students can attend Garforth Academy and sixth form, within easy walking distance of Silverwood and also rated ‘Outstanding’. Meanwhile, there are many further education options in Leeds including five universities.
If you enjoy sports or are thinking of taking up a new activity, Garforth is ideal. The town boasts a squash and leisure centre, cricket club, golf club and driving range. For those who prefer a leisurely stroll, there are beautiful walks to enjoy at nearby Rothwell Country Park and RSPB St Aidan’s.
Silverwood is perfectly placed for travel in the region, whether that’s by road or rail. The development is just over a mile from junction 46 of the M1, meaning Sheffield, York and Wakefield are all within easy commuting distance. The closest city is of course Leeds, a huge centre for industry which can be reached in less than 20 minutes by car, or in 10 minutes from Garforth train station. The station also operates direct routes to York and Hull, and connecting trains from Leeds provide options to travel nationwide. For travel further afield, Leeds Bradford Airport is 15 miles away.
