Property Profile Saxton

Poke your nose round the door of the hottest city centre properties

Property Profile: Saxton

Price: One-bed apartments from £99,950; two-bed apartments from £138,000

Where: Saxton, The Avenue

What’s included: City living but with plenty of green space is the thinking behind property developer Urban Splash’s new development, Saxton. Located just a five-minute walk from the thriving social hub of Call Lane, stylish exteriors courtesy of architects from Union North and boasting the largest private residents’ garden in Leeds, Saxton has plenty to offer. The building dates back 50 years but has been given a full makeover to give it a new lease of life, with apartments boasting full height glazing and high ceilings maximising the natural light. The apartments have spacious living areas, with many of the one-bed apartments going over 500 sq ft, and certain apartments enjoying city views and a balcony.

What sets Saxton apart from other city centre developments is its 6.5 acres of outdoor space. As well as orchids and wildflower meadows, it also has 97 allotments in the space surrounding the apartments, allowing residents to grow their own fruit and veg. With secured parking and an on-site gym Saxton has all the benefits of living in a city centre but with the additional peace and quiet of having your own garden.

Saxton is home to a total of 410 apartments split across its two buildings, ‘Drive’ and ‘Parade’, available to rent and buy. Properties in the Parade building are the latest to come to the market, with the added bonus of the possibility of shared ownership (in other words you could pay from £50,000 for a 50% share). One other bonus: there is an Earn a Grand scheme, whereby if you refer someone to Saxton and they go on to buy, you get rewarded with £1,000 (or £100 if they rent).

Eat and drink: Being only a short walk away from the likes of Call Lane and Clarence Dock, you’re obviously just minutes away from some of the city’s hippest bars and nightspots, from indie rock and cocktails at Call Lane Social, vodka madness at Revolution and sophisticated class at Brooklyn Bar plus many, many more. There is also a vast plethora of dining options, including Saturday Kitchen host James Martin’s restaurant The Leeds Kitchen, spicy Indian delights from Cafe Aagrah, Mumtaz and The Bird, and relaxed but fancy dining at the likes of Arts Cafe and the Piazza by Anthony.
