Downsize But Don't Downgrade With a New Home in Burton Leonard

Downsizing can be a tricky business fraught with lots of questions, considerations and often compromises. However, here at Chartford we believe that downsizing doesn't have to mean downgrading and this couldn't be more true, than with our new homes at Meadowgate in Burton Leonard.

Location, location, location

Anyone familiar with the property market knows it's all about location, location, location and that's why we chose to build our latest collection of exclusive new homes in Burton Leonard. It's a beautiful village in North Yorkshire with a coveted Harrogate postcode, that boasts plenty of charm and personality. It feels safe, secluded and rural yet it is within easy reach of larger towns and cities such as Ripon, Harrogate, York and Leeds. In other words, it's perfect for indulging in quiet anonymity, without getting disconnected from the world of business and culture.

In the village itself there is a village store and post office for all your day to day needs, The Royal Oak pub is the life and soul of the local community, offering delicious food and drink. The primary school is Ofsted rated outstanding, the local church is not only picturesque but busy, hosting a number of local events throughout the year but despite all that, the real beauty of Burton Leonard is the unparalled Yorkshire countryside.

There are views sweeping across wide horizons that stretch for miles and miles. Green rolling hills, hedgerows and woodland teeming with local wildlife, a quiet village green with tree covered benches perfect for quiet contemplation and miles and miles and miles of walking, cycling and horse riding routes.

A few of our favourite spots in the countryside surrounding Burton Leonard include Brimham Rocks, managed by The National Trust, which offers panoramic views of the local area, as well as the obvious destinations such as The North York Moors, the Yorkshire coastline, The Yorkshire Dales and even the Peak and Lake districts which are all within easy reach.

Live the life you love

As well as the perfect postcode, we know that the perfect home needs to work for your lifestyle too, so while Burton Leonard itself offers a vibrant community and a beautiful countryside setting, it's our homes at Meadowgate that offer the space, style and flexibility that modern luxury living demands.

Each property enjoys a generous plot, with gardens to the front and rear giving you comfortable breathing space between your home and your neighbour's. Wherever possible we've retained the natural greenery, hedgerows and trees around our new homes, to soften them in to the natural landscape and create that quiet, natural privacy Burton Leonard is popular for.

The homes here range in size from three to five bedrooms allowing you space to grow your family, invite friends to stay or create dedicated spaces for work, play or storage, be it a library, hobby room or a generous walk in wardrobe. Whatever you want, our homes in Burton Leonard offer the space and flexibility to meet all your needs and desires.

At Chartford, our motto is the difference is the detail. That's why we build to the highest specification and install quality fixtures and fittings throughout our homes. You can expect solid stone walls, slate roofs, beautiful tiling to bathrooms and kitchens, luxury bi-fold doors, designer sanitary wear and modern kitchens but don't just take our word for it, see for yourself!
