Make Big Savings On A New Home In North Yorkshire From The Comfort Of Yours!
25 Mar 2021

With the extension of the Stamp Duty holiday, a buoyancy in the housing market and a pioneering new sales hub – buyers can be King or Queen of their own castle in Knaresborough this spring.

Linden Homes is championing a new way of delivering its services to customers across North Yorkshire, allowing buyers to interact safely and professional with its sales teams.

The Castle Gate development in Knaresborough is home to one of the Yorkshire region’s six new hubs, offering homely surroundings for customers to access and enjoy their house buying journey.

The hub – which also serves the Grainbeck Lane development at Harrogate - operates on an appointment-only basis; ensuring that each customer has one-to-one face to face time with a sales executive.

Located close the town centre, the Castle Gate development will comprise a selection of 300 two, three, four and five-bedroom properties.

Ideal for first time buyers, young professional and families, the development has already welcomed its first residents.

And thanks to the Stamp Duty holiday being extended until the end of June 2021, even more buyers can save the maximum £15,000 on a new home at the development through the scheme.

As well as curbing the cost of moving, there are also huge environmental and wellbeing benefits to be enjoyed at Castle Gate; including extensive areas of open space and landscaping around the development and the proposed introduction of a Sustainable Travel Plan.

This will allow residents to take advantage of special offers and incentives to help them think and act greener when it comes to their own vehicle and public transport use.

Regional sales manager Gizzy Murray said: “Now is the perfect time to think about that brand new home at Castle Gate. Although the housing market has remained buoyant during the pandemic, spring is traditionally a time when people think seriously about moving home.

“With the road map out of lockdown in progress and a three-month extension to the Stamp Duty holiday, there are so many great reasons to take that step towards your new dream home.

“Our on-site sales hub really does create a home from home feel, allowing our sales teams to dedicate more one-to-one time with customers who have made an appointment after either viewing the development or taking a tour of the show home online.

“As the hub currently operates on an appointment-only basis, it means that visitors are not kept waiting while our sales executives may be busy looking after other customers.”

Gizzy added: “The sales hubs are not a direct replacement for the sales and marketing suites but offer our sales team the opportunity to work more effectively and efficiently. The pandemic has made us as an industry try to think a little smarter, and we have taken steps to turn this into a positive for Linden and our customers.”

Commuter friendly Castle Gate is just a mile from Knaresborough station, with links to Leeds and York, as well as being close to the A1.
A selection of Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ schools within easy reach in Knaresborough and Harrogate, and there are great shopping and entertainment options in close by Harrogate and the St James Retail Park
