A collection of two, four and five bedroom homes

Epitome is a collection of 91 two, four and five bedroom homes in the Snowhill area of Wakefield. Emerging in its own right alongside more established suburbs such as Wrenthorpe and Outwood, Snowhill is growing in popularity and amenities, making it an increasingly desirable place to live, within very easy reach of one of the north’s most exciting cities.

You're never far from the heart of Wakefield, with a journey into the city centre can take as little as 10 minutes by car. Local transport links to other areas also make it perfect for commuters, with easy access to both the M1 and M62.

"Snowhill has a great sense of community - and the location is great! It’s the perfect spot for commuting – it has fantastic links to Leeds, Wakefield and more, which is great for work and future career opportunities." Ben Smith, Epitome

Considered a green oasis not far from the centre of Wakefield, Alverthorpe Meadows and Wrenthorpe Park is a local nature reserve that’s great for walking and cycling. There’s also a kids’ playground and meadows for wildlife spotting. There are also several ponds there, with boardwalks so you can enjoy a family day out spotting creatures.

Eating out is also easy when you live at Epitome. Snowhill boasts excellent local eateries including Italian food at Capri @The Vine, traditional British pub food at Brewers’ Fayre and Indian cuisine from Kashmiri Aroma, all within half a mile of home. The Royal Spice on Bradford Road comes highly recommended and they also offer home delivery.

Snowhill is a small suburb of Wakefield, 1.4 miles from the city centre. Over the past few years, it has become a thriving residential area with a growing population and new shops and services adding to the amenities on the doorstep all the time. Several developments around Snowhill have meant new roads, retail parks and places to eat and drink have appeared in the area.

Wakefield is close to home and is fast becoming one of the north’s most important business hubs. A multi-million pound regeneration project is underway, bringing exciting new investment to the city. The first phases of the Merchant Gate residential, office and leisure development have been completed, and there’s also the new Trinity Walk shopping centre to enjoy.

There's also plenty to look forward to in the area surrounding the development, too, as the eagerly-anticipated Snowhill Retail Park is due to open later in 2017. Here you'll find Aldi and Iceland supermarkets – and best of all it's only a few minutes down the road.

With Wakefield so close by, your shopping fix is easily met. Trinity Walk Shopping Centre is 2.5 miles away in the city centre, where you'll find big names such as H&M, New Look and Topshop as well as places to eat and drink.
