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

As the lockdown eases, the interest in the Priory Meadows where prices start from £377,500, has been phenomenal, according to marketing agents Preston Baker.

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 Rishi Sunak’s announcement, Caedmon Homes have slashed 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 added: “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.”

James 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.”

Paul Brown explained the choice of location for the developent.

“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, and Leeds.”
