More than 80 per cent of the homes at a housing development at Kirby Hill, near Boroughbridge, have now been sold.

Interest in the Priory Meadows development has been phenomenal, according to marketing agents Preston Baker.

The prime Priory Meadows development, by North Yorkshire-based Caedmon Homes, includes 34 homes and there are now only six left on the market.

The development ranges from three-bed homes to five-beds, with prices starting from £377,500.

James Baker of Preston Baker said: “With the end of lockdown now in sight, the interest in Priory Meadows has been amazing, with six houses sold in the past six weeks. This

is a massive endorsement of a stunning development.

“Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s measures in his recent Budget, notably the extension of the Stamp Duty holiday, will also act as a stimulus to the housing market and we are expecting the whole of the Priory Meadows development to be sold out by the late spring and early summer."

In the wake of Mr Sunak’s announcement, Caedmon Homes has cut the prices on two of the remaining houses at Priory Meadows with The Newby, a four-bedroom detached house, reduced from £515,000 to £495,000 and The Dunsforth, a three-bed semi, now £360,000 down from £377,750.

Paul Brown, director of Caedmon Homes, said: “We would like to thank Preston Baker for marketing Priory Meadows so effectively. They have an excellent reputation as a

first-class Yorkshire property consultancy and they have done a superb job on this development.”

Mr Baker added: “Despite only having six houses left, Priory Meadows still offers a variety of new homes in this popular North Yorkshire village and the attention to detail, including design and specification, really sets the development apart from its competition.

“There is a lot of local competition for new build-houses in the immediate area with three sites within a couple of miles but Priory Meadows is in a different class. These houses are not generic boxes and their design is exclusive to Caedmon Homes. Many have splendid views and spacious interiors, which sets them apart.”

Mr Brown said: “We chose the location of this development extremely carefully. Kirby Hill is a pretty rural village near the flourishing market town of Boroughbridge and

within minutes of the A1 motorway, providing easy commuting access to York, Harrogate, Leeds and Newcastle."

In addition, Caedmon Homes is behind new state-of-the-art developments in the Groves area of York and at Whitby, close to the centre of the historic town. It is also looking for new sites in and around Yorkshire to continue its expansion.
