In Focus – Wakefield

June 2017

Steeped in history and heritage in the heart of the Yorkshire sculpture triangle, the market and textile town of Wakefield has a scenic setting with a strong appeal for everyone. From beautiful countryside and historic museums to a vibrant town centre containing modern bars and restaurants, Wakefield has a wide mix of establishments to cater to the needs of everyone.

Its close proximity to Leeds gives you fantastic access to both local and national transport links, whilst the city centre is just a short 15 minute drive away. Barnsley town centre is a 15 minute drive away whilst a further 15 minutes in the car will take you to Meadowhall shopping centre.

Whilst the lure of Leeds is strong, Wakefield boasts plenty of attractions to keep you occupied. Wakefield boasts the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Wakefield Waterfront, the Hepworth Art Gallery and the Trinity Walk retail development, infusing a perfect blend of traditional Wakefield heritage with modern inner town regeneration.

With the regeneration of the area accompanied by the tranquil countryside surroundings, it is no surprise that the area is becoming increasingly popular amongst first time buyers, particularly on the Help to Buy scheme.

The Help to Buy scheme offers buyers a 5 year interest free 20% equity loan on the value of a property and with only a 5% deposit, there's no better time to make the move.

We've listed some of the developments available this month on the Help to Buy scheme;
