Saxton is a great place to live, there is nothing else quite like it. Our one and two bedroom apartments have bright open plan living spaces with full height glazing, offering fantastic views over Leeds.

There is tons of outside space too, with six and a half acres of private resident’s gardens, wildflower meadows, an orchard and allotments so you can grow your own veg! There is even a resident’s gym and it’s all located just minutes from the city centre.

Saxton houses 410 apartments split into two buildings (Drive and Parade). The buildings were built 50 years ago and we’ve given them a new lease of life.

Architects Union North have given the buildings a makeover and created a range of stunning one and two bedroom apartments at the heart of one of our greatest cities. They all have a high specification finish and many have private balconies or fabulous garden terraces. Secured parking is also available for every apartment at an additional cost.

The outside is as good as the inside at Saxton, with a private resident’s garden underway (probably the largest in Leeds!), a wildflower meadow and even an orchard.
There’s even space to grow your five a day, every day with the allotments almost in place and ready for you to reserve your own patch!

Shared ownership now available in Leeds city centre

We want to give everyone the chance to own their very own home. There are many ways to live in our vibrant communities and working together with the Homes and Communities Agency we can now offer you the opportunity to buy your own Funky & Affordable home through shared ownership. Same funky apartment with everything you would expect from an Urban Splash home… but more affordable if you can’t quite manage to buy outright just yet.

Shared ownership is a government backed initiative funded by the Homes and Communities Agency, to help you get your foot on the housing ladder. It allows you to purchase an affordable share in your own home, ranging from 25% - 75%, with the option to buy additional shares in the future taking you into 100% outright ownership.

If you do need time to save up for your deposit, as an alternative to purchasing a share straight away, you can rent at 80% of market rent, allowing you to save now with a view to purchasing at any point within the next five years.

Read more about it in our ‘Guide to Shared ownership’

Can I buy through shared ownership?

The good news is that it’s available to a really broad audience, the main criteria being that:

- You/your household has an annual income of less than £60,000 (Let’s face it, who doesn’t!)
- You are in full time employment
- You currently own no other properties

Through shared ownership, you can buy anything from 25% to 75% of the property, renting the remaining share at 2.75% per annum. The amount you can afford will be assessed by the HomeBuy Agent who acts on behalf of the government. Urban Splash wants to help our customers further, therefore those opting to buy straight away will benefit from a contribution of up to 5% towards your deposit*

What’s a HomeBuy agent?

HomeBuy agents act on behalf of the government and will assess your eligibility for shared ownership and process your application My4Walls is the HomeBuy agent for shared ownership at Saxton. Contact us to apply for homes in Leeds
