Dewsbury Buyers’ Guide
With a population of over 55,000, Dewsbury forms the largest town in the Heavy Woollen District – the conurbation of small mill towns in West Yorkshire – and offers great employment prospects, which are increasing all the time. A burgeoning multi-cultural community forms the heart of Dewsbury, with market stalls mid-week and on the weekends lending to the town’s charm and fame. Guide prices for properties in Dewsbury and the surrounding area start at as little as £55k, making the area absolutely suited and accessible to first-time buyers. Such properties below the £100k mark are usually 1-2 bedroom flats, though terraced houses are also attainable in this range. Though providing ample comfort, these homes will often present great opportunity for refurbishment, making them especially suited for buyers looking to turn their new property into a personalised home.
Above £100k, Dewsbury provides terraced and semi-detached homes with up to 4 bedrooms. Ideal locations with favourable proximity to a host of transport and local amenities, this price range offers more great opportunity for first time buyers and those with a little more money to spend. Beautiful Victorian architecture is a mainstay of Dewsbury, and house hunters can expect to find such properties in this pricing bracket. Other options span into beautiful family homes in quiet residential areas, a number of which include front and rear gardens, as well as driveways to offer safe, off-street parking.
Impressive, modern, fully detached homes become available over the £200k mark. Property hunters will be greeted with a range of 4, 5 and 6-bedroom homes to choose from, many situated in semi-rural areas with spectacular views of the countryside. Closer to the town centre, exceptionally spacious properties are available with multiple reception rooms and front and rear gardens. Bungalows can also be sought, some with scope for further development.
Clients with a budget between £300k and £500k are presented with a stunning array of large, spacious properties with generous proportions, ideally suited for growing families. Prime, rural locations can be sought within this price range, with a number of properties with histories dating back to the 16th Century. There are also opportunities for buy-to-rent property investors to acquire properties already converted into multiple apartments. Bungalows and extended bungalows with up to 5 bedrooms comprising en-suite facilities are also listed in Dewsbury in this pricing bracket.
Truly enormous properties are found at the top-end of the housing market in Dewsbury – some with over 30 or even 40 bedrooms. There are many properties without this excess, however, with stylish barn-conversions, brick, former schools and beautiful rural dwellings completing the catalogue. These buildings contain exceptional features both to the exterior and interior, and quite simply present unrivalled opportunity to own and live in some of the most desirable, vast and gorgeous properties West Yorkshire has to offer. Numerous living spaces, large gardens, modern finishes, impressive kitchens, dining rooms and conservatories all feature heavily above £500k, and properties present with varying degrees of individuality to suit those looking for something unique and full of character.
