Work, Rest And Play In A New Home At North Yorkshire’s Best Addresses
22 Dec 2020

From remote workers, commuters, families, or those looking for a gentler pace of life – new homes in North Yorkshire’s Harrogate region tick all the boxes.

With two stunning developments close to the sought-after spa town, Vistry Yorkshire (part of Vistry Group) has a selection of desirable homes where families can work, rest and play.

Three, four and five-bedroom homes to suit a range of budgets and lifestyle requirements are currently available at the Grainbeck Lane development in Killinghall and at Castlegate in Knaresborough; both well-connected locations within easy reach of Harrogate and beyond.

Due to the pandemic, the past year has seen an increase in the number of people working from home, which has made homes with studies or offices more desirable. Many of the properties at these Vistry Yorkshire developments offer that versatile, additional space.

In addition, large open plan dining room/ kitchen areas, roomy lounges and spacious bedrooms are included in the developer’s property portfolio; with the village-based developments ideally located to benefit from many local amenities as well as easy access to locations including Harrogate itself, York and Leeds.

And to complete the lifestyle; there are plenty of open spaces, carefully designed landscaping, cycle paths, woodland walks and stunning scenery to enjoy and explore, with the Yorkshire Dales right on the doorstep.

Interest in both developments has led to a number of recent reservations; with the Government’s stamp duty holiday and extension of the key worker package helping to curb the cost of moving.

And with January just around the corner, there is a further opportunity to save on the cost of a new home with the Help to Buy and Smooth Move schemes.

Vistry Yorkshire marketing manager Megan Marshall said: “The designs of the homes and the desirable locations of both these developments have been among the contributory factors in people choosing the move here. Our incentives also allow for buyers to curb the cost of moving as well as helping those with an existing property to sell it and move to a new home with us through our Help to Buy or Smooth Move schemes, as well as the Stamp Duty holiday which runs until the end of March 2021 on homes less than £500,000.”

Harrogate itself is perfectly positioned to offer great rail links for easy access to London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Fast trains take around two hours from London to York, and you can travel by rail from Harrogate to Kings Cross in under three hours.

And helping to make the customer journey easy and safe during the pandemic, customers can take a virtual tour of not one, but two showhomes at Castlegate as well as extensive information about these and other developments at
