For many first time buyers stamp duty has long been an unwelcomed and unavoidable cost. But buyers in Gipton no longer need worry, as the Yorkshire division of national homebuilder Bellway has released two new house types on its Acorn Park development both of which are priced below the current £125,000 stamp duty threshold.

Priced from £114,995 and £119,995 respectively, the Brindley and the Pendle are both two bedroom properties that combine fresh ideas with eco-friendly building techniques, making them ideal and practical first homes – both in terms of size and price.

Pauline Bishop, Bellway’s site sales adviser said: “First time buyers are always up against it and stamp duty is seen as a massive problem for those already struggling to find extra money to get on to the property ladder, therefore we’ve made owning your own home that much easier by intentionally keeping the prices of the Brindley and the Pendle below the threshold.”

And it seems that Bellway has presented a perfect solution to make it all possible. As when complete, the 51-new homes will fit perfectly within its vision for modern day living, with each contemporary home being specifically designed to provide ample space and flexibility. Furthermore, each home features an open plan living room and dining area accompanied with a separate kitchen and each will give homeowners the opportunity to tailor their new home to their personal tastes, giving them the choice over kitchen units and bathroom tiles.”

Acorn Park is situated on Thorn Walk, Gipton. Full details can be found at or by calling 0113 2407 837.
