Fryston riverside scheme 75% sold as Kier goes the extra mile

Kier Living has sold 75% of the first release of starter homes at Riverbank Meadows, it’s new residential scheme in the village of Fryston, near Castleford.

The housebuilder has secured major incentives for first-time buyers to get onto the housing ladder with prices for its two bedroom ‘Pintail’ homes from just £124,995 (or £99,996 through the Help to Buy scheme). Working with buyers to suit individual circumstances, it has also managed to complete some homes ahead of schedule.

Sam Gomersall is one such buyer who was sleeping, as an interim measure, on a friend’s sofa. Kier Living completed his first home two weeks early and with a complete furniture package included, Sam has been able to move into a new home that is fully functional.

Sam said: “I am amazed at how easy the whole process has been. You are often led to believe that moving house is a very stressful process but it’s been an exciting one for me. Through Help to Buy I was able to secure my first home with just 5% deposit and Kier Living has taken care of the rest. Completing earlier than scheduled was just the icing on the cake and now I am the proud owner of my own property in a beautiful location.”

Kier Living is building 150 new houses at Riverbank Meadows, which is just off Wheldon Road, to offer a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. The award-winning developer has received strong interest in the scheme due to its location adjacent to the River Aire and opposite the RSPB reserve at Fairburn Ings.

Fourteen out of the first nineteen properties released have been sold to date and Kier Living plans to release its second phase at the end of July. A new show home is also due to launch on site at the end of August.

David Mackintosh, sales and marketing director, Kier Living Northern, said, “We are delighted to announce strong sales at Riverside Meadows. The beautiful countryside location on the banks of the River Aire with direct access to scenic trails and wildlife preservation zones is a real selling point.

“Riverbank Meadows is also proving popular with young professionals needing an easy commuter location. There a very few comparable schemes in Leeds that can currently deliver this with affordable homes.”

Kier Living is building Riverbank Meadows over a three-year phased completion programme. For details contact 08448 442756. E [email protected]
