David And Hayley Get Settled In Thirsk Before The Arrival Of Their Bundle Of Joy
06 Jan 2017

Starting off a new year in a new home is an exciting prospect in itself – but include a baby, and there is even more reason to celebrate spacious surroundings and a great environment.

They may be recent arrivals at Linden Homes West Yorkshire’s popular Thirsk development themselves, but David and Hayley Walker are preparing for a new arrival of their own in February.

In their search for a new home, the couple were looking for a fairly rural setting with good local amenities and excellent schools – as well as easy access to motorway networks.

The Mowbray View development, says 39-year-old company director David, ticks all the boxes.

He said: “We lived in Addingham before moving here, however the traffic and poor commute routes dictated that we set up home here to save time on all counts really. Schools were of primary importance, and Mowbray View is close to both primary and secondary schools.

“We love the open countryside, and the Thirsk market centre has a fabulous choice of pubs and shops.”

The couple used the Part Exchange scheme to buy their new home, with their existing property selling within a day of Linden Homes advertising it for sale.

David added: “With Hayley being pregnant, we didn’t want to risk losing the house, hence we opted for Part Exchange. We were delighted overall with the whole process, being pretty much stress and hassle free.

“We are very much looking forward to raising our first child, with a decent sized and private south facing garden a huge bonus for us, and we truly look forward to the whole development beginning to mature.”

And using Part Exchange - like the Walkers - couldn’t be easier. Linden Homes will arrange for at least three independent valuations of your existing home and will make you an offer based on their suggestions.

Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your buyer, freeing you up to put reserve your new home. After that, it's a case of setting a moving-in date, boxing up your things, and basking in the relief of a quick chain-free move to the home of your dreams. You can stay in your existing home until your new one is ready.

Interest in Mowbray View – which comprises a range of two, thee and four-bedroom homes - is gathering pace.

A selection of homes to suit everyone from first time buyers and young professional to families and downsizers is being built in the popular and picturesque village location.

Enjoying the best of both worlds, ‘James Herriot country’ Thirsk is a bustling, traditional market town with a stunning cobbled square holding twice-weekly markets, complemented perfectly by a great selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Thirsk is perfectly placed between two of the country’s most beautiful landscapes, the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Despite the country backdrop, being so close to the A19 and A1(M) means travelling around the region is easy. Commuter destinations including Harrogate, York, Leeds and Middlesbrough are all less than an hour away by car. The location is also well served by railway links.

The sales and marketing suite are open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively contact the sales team on 01845 408567 for prices and availability.
