About Origin

Origin is a collection of 152 homes, ranging from two to four bedrooms. The development is positioned on farmland on the edge of Featherstone, a flourishing town that’s 15 miles from Leeds and seven from Wakefield. Spacious and open, we’re creating green, shared spaces at the heart of the development which is fast becoming a thriving community, including plenty of first time buyers and families looking to upgrade. 

Featherstone has a rich mining history and a thriving rugby league club. It's a well-established, vibrant place with a strong community spirit, making it is a popular choice for families who enjoy a choice of good schools (including one rated ‘outstanding’), and those who want to be able to leave work in Wakefield or Leeds, get home quickly, and feel a world away from the city. 

“We have already grown close with three other couples on the development and regularly see them for drinks and nights in.” 
Gaynor and Ashley, Origin

“The team at Origin was always prepared to go the extra mile to make sure we were well-settled into our new home” 
Col and Abi, Origin

Local Area

ON THE DOORSTEP

Origin sits on the edge of farmland and open fields. Moments from home there is Farmer Copley’s farm shop and play farm, complete with seven acres of maize maze in the summer. 

You’re a short walk from Purston Park with its boating lakes, rose gardens and play areas. A quick drive away you’ll find the beautiful stately homes and gardens of Nostell Priory and Temple Newsam, perfect for weekend exploring. 

A little further away are Waterton Country Park, Newmillerdam and Hemsworth Water Park, ideal for summer swimming and picnicking, and the award-winning Yorkshire Sculpture Park is 8 miles from home. If it’s the great outdoors you’re after, there’s plenty for you to enjoy. 

Being a well-established community, Featherstone offers everything you need day to day, including a post office, supermarkets, grocers, farm shop and butcher. You have a choice of local pubs, including the historic Travellers Rest and a number of restaurants, cafés and takeaways.

PART EXCHANGE

We will buy your home


Our Part Exchange option means we could buy your home for 100% of its market value, leaving you free to buy one of ours.

This means there will be no estate agent fees to pay and no chain, helping you move into your new home sooner than expected. 

 
With Part Exchange, you will have an offer for your home within five days. We can give you a guaranteed price for your existing property so you can get moving.

For more information and to find out if the Part Exchange option is right for you, please contact a Customer Experience Manager. 
 

ASSISTED SELLING PLAN


A bespoke selling plan for homeowners

The Assisted Selling Plan is designed to help homeowners climb the property ladder. As part of the scheme, we will organise the sale of your existing home, making sure you receive the best possible price. This will allow you to reserve your new home with us.

We will create a personal selling plan, including a review of the property market in your area and an agreed sale price for your home based on two independent valuations. We will work closely with the nominated estate agent to arrange all viewings and enquiries. All offers will be presented to you, and our Customer Experience Manager will guide you through the negotiation process. 







Once you accept an offer we will track the sale of your home, while you start planning for your brand new one.
 
If your chosen home is ready within a four-month period, we may offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.
