Luxury homes development in Sandal, Wakefield coming soon: Open day on March 23

This stunning development offers house-buyers the chance to own something stylishly modern, classically designed and set in a semi-rural location just miles from the city centre

With new homes ready to move into in April, Crosbie Homes have announced an open day at their exclusive new development, Woodthorpe Grove, on March 23.

Seven luxury executive homes have been created, in a unique location, set in six acres of lush woodland in what was the former residence of the Bishop of Wakefield, and of these four have already been reserved. 

Built in Sandal, just two miles from the cathedral city itself, these properties have an incredibly high specification, just right for the discerning house-hunter who wants anything but ordinary in their new family home.

The architects have an eye for style, but also for sustainable practicality. The generously proportioned homes are energy efficient, and come with an electric vehicle charging point; they are situated in a secure gated community with a large woodland garden, including private gardens for each property.

The eco theme goes beyond what sits on the drive – on selected plots the green roof system will help keeps bills down, while roof mounted solar panels and underfloor heating downstairs, will make you feel right at home. The homes also come with air-source heating systems.

Inside, there’s full fibre high speed internet and pre-installed cabling for a SKY TV system.


Back to the future

The three contemporary homes built in the 1885 bishop’s residence ooze heritage alongside modern living. The original façade has been carefully retained, and the homes designed to make the most of the features. Each of the four modern villas has been designed to be tasteful, yet modern, in a unique style which blends in to the location perfectly.

Speaking of location, the gated community offers private seclusion and verdant surroundings, yet cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and services in nearby Wakefield will keep everyone happy.

With high speed wifi, working from home is a dream, especially with the generous space on offer, but should you need to commute, you can take the train from Wakefield to Leeds in just 14 minutes.


Already four of the seven homes have been reserved – don’t miss your chance to explore the development and buy your own piece of tranquil serenity to call home.

Roger Hall, the Associate Director at Richard Kendall Estate Agent, the selling agent commented: “Sandal is Wakefield’s premier area, it has got great  facilities close at hand such as shops, good schools, walks and really good access into the city centre, whilst the motorway is readily accessible via Junction 39 of the M1.”
