Lots of choice for Yorkshire home buyers

OWNING a beautiful brand new home in Yorkshire has never been easier or offered more choice, thanks to Redrow Homes.
Whether you hanker after town or country living and whatever your circumstances - first time buyer, expanding family or empty nester - Redrow can help.
“We’ve homes for everyone in some lovely locations,” says Patsy Aicken, Redrow sales director. “And, being brand new, they’re energy efficient, easy to run and won’t need any major repairs or renovations like an older, second hand property.”
From Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection homes at The Granary and Georgian influenced Regent Collection homes at Lancaster Mews, in York – recently named THE best place to live in the UK by The Sunday Times – to newly launched family homes at Springfields, in Highburton, near Huddersfield, and Langley Grange in Scissett, there’s plenty of choice.
Neighbouring developments in Horsforth, near Leeds, feature stone-built properties in a leafy green location. Woodlands at Horsforth Vale and The Green offer a wide choice, including versatile three-storey townhouses with all the space of a more expensive detached property.
Stunning Regent Collection townhouses feature at St Andrew’s Place in Newton Kyme, close to Boston Spa and Wetherby; while Devonshire Gardens, Harrogate, is near to The Stray and within walking distance of the town centre – but hurry as only a couple of townhouses remain.
Churchfields, in the quintessential Yorkshire village of Green Hammerton, boasts specially designed family homes, including the three-bedroom Ashbourne which is that little bit different. It’s built on the footprint of what would normally be a four-bedroom property but, instead, has three larger bedrooms, each with its own ensuite, and the master bedroom includes a walk-in wardrobe. With circulation space downstairs more in keeping with a four-bedroom property, it’s a home that’s particularly suited to entertaining and those who want fewer bedrooms without sacrificing overall space.
A village location, handy between Leeds and York, makes Saxon Gardens, in Sherburn-in-Elmet, a popular choice with commuters.
“Each development is different but they all enjoy quality new homes and a carefully chosen location close to local shops, schools and services and/or within easy commuting distance of larger towns and cities,” Patsy adds.
Soon more people will be able to enjoy the ambience of a brand new Redrow home, with developments coming to City Fields and St Johns Mews, in Wakefield, the latter being the site of the old West Yorkshire Police training centre at Bishopgarth. It’s a prime location, opposite the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and approximately 10 minutes’ walk from Wakefield Westgate train station.
Others include Aspen Park at Roundwood and The Poplars at Roundwood, both in Garforth, near Leeds. Aspen Park will feature the Georgian influenced Regent Collection, while The Poplars is home to the Heritage Collection and its Arts & Crafts inspired designs.
Not too far away, just off the Leeds Outer Ring Road, The Hawthorns will offer Heritage Collection family homes in an easily accessible location.
And Stoney Bank Chase, in Thongsbridge, will bring Redrow’s traditional looking homes within a stone’s throw of Holmfirth, famous location of TV’s Last of the Summer Wine.
Once you’ve decided where you want to live, Redrow has several ways to make it happen.
For those with limited deposits, especially first time buyers, the Government backed Help to Buy scheme offers an equity loan that’s interest free for the first five years and means purchasers might only need a 5% deposit.
Existing home owners with a property to sell can use Redrow’s Mastermove service to help find a buyer quickly, with Redrow contributing to selling fees; or in certain circumstances you may be able to use your current property as part-payment for a brand new Redrow home.
