Buy Off Plan And Beat The Rush To A New Home In North Yorkshire Village Location
05 Sep 2013

AWARD-WINNING Linden Homes is giving savvy customers the chance to snap up a dream home at a fantastic new development in North Yorkshire.

Adding to its extensive portfolio of new homes, the house builder is urging buyers to beat the rush and reserve off plan when the first properties at its development in the village of Thorpe Willoughby become available this month.

For home hunters seeking a tranquil yet thriving location for a family home or a place to relax and enjoy life, the Willeby Heights development - located close to Selby – ticks all the boxes.

A wonderful selection of 149 carefully designed three and four-bedroom homes – including a number of bungalows – will provide plenty of housing choice for everyone from first time buyers, growing families and those looking for a smaller, more manageable property.

Designer kitchens and bathrooms, energy efficiency fittings and the latest hi-tech wiring for home entertainment and communication are among the many benefits.

And by reserving from plan – customers will also have the chance to cherry-pick their preferred plot and reap the further benefits of:

  • Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
  • Choosing their preferred taste in bathroom wall tiles
  • Choosing their preferred kitchen units and worktops
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan their new home
  • Lower utility bills, better sound proofing and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient that their older counterparts
  • A 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

There has already been huge forward interest in the development.

Thorpe Willoughby is an attractive self-contained village that already boasts a thriving community with many local amenities – with Linden Homes delighted to have contributed towards sponsorship of the recent Village Carnival.

A stone’s throw from Thorpe Willoughby is the town of Selby, positioned on the banks of the River Ouse.

For those looking to venture further afield either for work or play, Thorpe Willoughby is a comfortable distance form York (16 miles) and Leeds (20 miles). Excellent road links with A1 and M62 provide a central route to many other destinations around the UK.
