Coming soon signs have gone up at Bellway’s brand new development on Thorn Walk in Gipton, which the housebuilder expects will ‘blossom’ following the recent success of its nearby development on Oaktree Drive.
Situated just four miles from Leeds city centre, Acorn Park will offer a selection of two bedroom coach houses, two bedroom town houses and three/four bed semi-detached properties, and is expected to be popular with first time buyers and families alike.
Bellway sales advisor, Pauline Bishop, who will work on the site when the sales office opens, said: “It’s exciting – the signs are up and building is well underway so things are really taking shape ready for our first release in a few months’ time.
“Following the popularity of The Oaks here in Gipton, we are pretty sure these properties won’t remain on the market for long. The combination of the convenient location coupled with the value for money on these modern new builds is certainly appealing, and when people realise they can use the Help to Buy initiative as well as Express Mover, we should get quite a bit of interest.”
Bellway’s free-of-charge Express Mover service involves the Yorkshire division of the national homebuilder working with recommended local agents to sell a buyer’s existing property. What this means is that the buyer doesn’t have to worry about dealing directly with estate agents, and it also removes the cost of estate agent fees, therefore saving them money as well as stress.
Meanwhile, the Government’s Help to Buy scheme allows prospective buyers to get on the property ladder with as little as a five per cent deposit.
Prices at Acorn Park will be announced soon with properties available to buy off-plan from May 2014.
Bellway, which has nine current developments in Yorkshire including The Limes in Crossgates, and Wellesley Grange in Pudsey, says visitor numbers across it’s sites have risen, while sales have exceeded expectations – a significant part of which can be put down to Government schemes such as Help to Buy, designed to energise the housing market.
In addition, work has just begun on new developments in Burley in Wharfedale, Queensbury, and Penistone.
Bellway has built more than 100,000 homes since its formation in 1946 and is today one of the largest housebuilders in the UK. The Bellway website reads: “Today we directly employ 2,000 people and have earned an enviable reputation, built on the pillars of quality, service and trust.
“From one bedroom apartments to luxury penthouses and prestigious executive houses, we pride ourselves on understanding the aspirations of all our buyers, not just in the type of home that suits your needs, but in the environment in which you want to live.
