Gleeson Homes launch latest development in Bradford

Gleeson Homes has launched its third development in Bradford on the former Grattan factory site off Ingleby Road.

Northbeck Grange is Gleeson’s third active site in Bradford, alongside Carrwood Park in Tyersal and Calverley View in Fagley, demonstrating its  commitment to fulfil the need for affordable, quality homes in the area by providing 565 new homes spread across these three developments.,

Northbeck Grange, a development of 167 homes, situated on Northside Road, launched on 5th February from Gleeson’s sales centre whilst construction continues on the show homes, which are due to open in the Summer. The development will be under construction for around four years.

First releases at Northbeck Grange consisting of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes proved extremely popular with over 50% of them being reserved within the first five days of being on sale. The first homeowners can expect to move into their new homes in spring.

Andrew Davies, Regional Managing Director at Gleeson said:

“We are delighted to launch our third development in Bradford, with prices starting from £147,995, showing our commitment to provide affordable, quality homes to those who needs them most.

“We expect there will be exceptional demand for our homes here, as there has been at our other Bradford developments. This is a fantastic opportunity for people in the area  to escape the rent trap and own their own home.

“We are pleased to be supporting the local community by continuing to develop the local infrastructure, as well employing a workforce made up of local labour and contractors.”

An upcoming fourth site of 160 homes, named Squirrel Fold, is due to open later this year in Thornton and all roads on the development will be named after the Bronte sisters, their family and their works due to the sisters growing up in Thornton. Road names will include Charlotte Bronte Way, Villette Row, Shirley Mews, Jane Eyre Lane, The Professor Close, Bronte Way, Anne Bronte Avenue, Agnes Grey Lane, Elizabeth Bronte Mews, Bran well Bronte Close, Emily Bronte Road, Maria Bronte Drive, Patrick Bronte Court and Wuthering Heights.

With a further two developments in planning stages at Idle Moor and Bierley, Gleeson aims to provide even more affordable homes for those who truly need them.

Gleeson builds homes that are genuinely affordable, providing customers with the opportunity for wealth creation through homeownership. Four out of five of Gleeson’s customers are first-time buyers, with three out of four of its customers being under the age of 35.

Gleeson is seeking local labour and sub-contractors to work on this exciting new development, including applications from local young people who are interested in joining the Gleeson apprenticeship scheme.
