Guinness Homes: New Shared Ownership homes in Leeds

One, two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes at Points Cross

Prospective Leeds homeowners enjoyed afternoon tea and prosecco at an event held by national housing developer, Guinness Homes. On Saturday 14th January, the event at Points Cross, Chadwick Street, celebrated Phase One of the Shared Ownership development with the launch of its state-of-the-art two bedroom show home and marketing suite.

Phase One of the Points Cross development includes 58 one bedroom apartments, 95 two bedroom apartments, 16 three bedroom apartments and 24 three bedroom duplexes, which are now available for reservation. With prices starting from £89,500 for a 50% share in the property, Shared Ownership is a more affordable alternative to traditional homeownership for prospective buyers, especially for those seeking to own their first home. With the opportunity to further increase the percentage share over time, known as ‘staircasing’, owners can control what they own based on their affordability.

Situated on the edge of the city centre, Points Cross is located to the west of Leeds Dock and is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station. Local to Leeds City College campus and Crown Point shopping centre, the development is ideally situated in the heart of a dynamic, thriving community.

Amy Gooder, Yorkshire Regional Sales Manager at Guinness Homes said;

“Our recent launch was a great success, and it was rewarding to share our knowledge with prospective homeowners on what Shared Ownership is all about. With many of our guests being first-time buyers, Shared Ownership properties are an exciting and affordable way to help young people get a foot on the property ladder.

“In 2023, we’re looking forward to welcoming residents into Points Cross, and everything else that the year has in store for us at Guinness Homes.”
