A bustling Yorkshire market town’s growing popularity as a place to live has been underlined by the sales success of its latest collection of new homes.
No less than 25 per cent of the properties being brought to life in Wetherby were sold off-plan, and now estate agents have reopened, there has been renewed interest.
Walkers Court is the latest project from the independent developers, Illuminating Investments, based nearby at Boston Spa.
It has created 16 apartments in the heart of the racecourse town as part of a £3m brace of developments that sit side-by-side on the site off Audby Lane.
According to the Land and New Homes team at estate agents Linley & Simpson, who have been appointed to handle the marketing and sales of all the apartments, Wetherby is a town fast growing in popularity.
“The off-plan sales, achieved so soon after being unveiled to the community, was a signal of the strength of the new homes market in Wetherby,” said Director of Land and New Homes at Linley & Simpson, David Waddington.
“Whilst the Coronavirus lockdown affected the property market, we are now seeing renewed interest in Walkers Court. The development sits in a bullseye location for Leeds and York commuters with its easy access to the A1(M).
“It meets a growing need in Wetherby for this style of living, at a highly-competitive price. All the apartments boast an impressive specification.”
Featuring a selection of one and two bedroom apartments on two levels, the twin developments will continue to be known as Marston House and Fairfax House to commemorate Wetherby’s place in the history books as a result of its close links to the English Civil War.
One-bedroom apartments start at £145,000, while two-bedroom options are priced from £170,000.
