New Homes And A New Face Are Ready To Greet Visitors To The Balk This Autumn
15 Oct 2018

It may be autumn, but that’s certainly no reason to hibernate if you are thinking about a new home – particularly as you can be moved in for Christmas at Pocklington!

As well as a stunning selection of new homes at The Balk, Linden Homes East Yorkshire has welcomed a new member of the team to the development; sales executive Amanda Meadows.

Amanda has been in the new homes industry for 14 years, and spent the past four years working for a leading developer in South Yorkshire.

Relishing her new challenge, she said: “I’ve recently relocated from South to East Yorkshire to live with my partner, and I’m loving the area and the people! I’m only half an hour away from my site in Pocklington, which is perfect.

“I’m hoping I’ll be a great asset to an already very successful region of Linden Homes and I have to say I’ve been made most welcome. Everyone has gone out of their way to make sure I feel part of the team and my training has been excellent.”

The Balk has plenty to offer home hunters when it comes to design choice and style, with show home and view home openings planned for November – when visitors will be able to see for themselves just what the development currently has to offer.

The range of three, four and five-bedroom homes boast contemporary layouts and modern open plan designs.

Situated just a few minutes’ walk from the shops, leisure facilities and restaurants that Pocklington has to offer, these homes are ideal for those looking to take their first step on the property ladder, or buyers looking to move up with their growing families.

A gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds, Pocklington offers breath-taking local walks, cycle paths and activity trails. You will only be a short stroll from the beautiful Burnby Gardens & Museum with its full schedule of arts, culture and entertainment.

And when you add to this the excellent road and rail links to locations including York, Hull and Leeds, you will find that Pocklington really does have it all.

And for those with an existing property to sell, there is also a chance to move into your dream home for Christmas, through the part exchange scheme.

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 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.

A popular self-contained market town, Pocklington offers the best of both worlds – for those who enjoy a gentler pace of life while being within easy commutable distance of York and Hull.

The sales and marketing suite is currently open daily from 11am until 6pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 01759 401520.
