Yorkshire based Advent Developments has appointed Wetherby-based Keepsake Construction as the main contractor to build a £2million new homes scheme in Ripon.
Work started on the exclusive new homes development this month to build eight, three and four bedroom homes on Wheatsheaf Close, which is just one mile from Ripon’s City Centre.
Located just off Harrogate Road, the superb new homes benefit from an easily accessible location and excellent schools and services nearby. With prices starting from £200,000, it’s anticipated that there will be significant interest in the development.
Tim Reeve from Advent Developments says: “We specialise in high quality developments in sought-after areas and pride ourselves on finding attractive locations like this one, which is ideal for a small scheme of standout homes in a very popular area.
“Keepsake Construction has a superb reputation throughout North Yorkshire for their exceptional standards of workmanship, which made them the ideal company for this development and we’re delighted to see work get underway.”
Keith Smart, managing director of Keepsake, said: “We are delighted to be working with Advent Developments in creating high quality houses on this development. We have a real passion for building great homes and our team of experts will ensure that Ripon has a new development to be proud of.”
Ripon’s top selling agent Dacre Son & Hartley is marketing the properties. Sales manager Andrew Skelton said: “A lot of buyers are attracted to Ripon for the excellent schools and amenities. The Cathedral City boasts plenty of restaurants, shops and supermarkets as well as a cinema and all of the local services you would expect to have access to.
“Average house prices in Ripon were up by over 2 per cent in 2015 and there are only two other new homes developments underway in the City. Both of these are on a small scale and in a higher price bracket, so there is a real shortage of quality homes like these which have a very realistic and attractive price tag.
“The fact that Advent Developments has a strong reputation and proven track-record in Yorkshire for delivering stylish high quality residential schemes also adds to the appeal of the development.”
