WORK STARTS ON HEWORTH EDGE . 37 NEW ECO HOMES
WORK has started on a major new homes development that will include a wide selection of high quality houses and apartments, as well as a brand new social club, at Heworth which is less than two miles from York city centre.
The development, known as Heworth Edge, will consist of 37, two and three bedroom homes and nine apartments. In addition Burnholme Social Club is being demolished and a modern new club is being built to replace it.
Prices at Heworth Edge, which is being marketed by leading York based estate agents Hudson Moody, will start at £150,000 and the first homes will be released for sale later this year. Local construction company Lindum, based in York, has been appointed to carry out the building work which will complete in early 2015.
Speaking on behalf of the development firm, Andrew Garrens commented: “We’re delighted that work is now underway at Heworth Edge. This development is specifically designed to offer a wide range of energy efficient homes that all benefit from a superb specification and are realistically priced.
“Even though there’s a significant amount of development taking place in York, such as the £90m Vangarde development which is just a couple of miles away, there’s a major shortage of new homes being built in the area. When this is combined with the exceptional standard of homes that we’re building, we’re confident that Heworth Edge will be extremely popular with potential buyers who want a high quality home in a great location.”
Andrew adds: “We’re also receiving lots of positive feedback about the new Burnholme Social Club. The club has been a key feature in the local community for more than 130 years but the building had fallen into a state of disrepair so the most viable option was to build a brand new club. The purpose built property is designed to be energy efficient and low maintenance and there’s no doubt it will be a fantastic asset to the area.”
Lindum has a wealth of experience in the residential housing sector. Andrew Jones, Managing Director of Lindum York, says: “We are pleased to be working on this project which is on our door step and look forward to demonstrating our knowledge, expertise, skill and, above all, understanding of our client’s requirements in delivering this quality residential development.”
Ben Hudson, Managing Partner at Hudson Moody, said: “In recent years there’s been a lack of residential development taking place in and around York and now that the housing market has turned a corner, demand for high quality new homes in good locations is outstripping supply.
“Heworth Edge is in a popular area with good transport links and will offer a fantastic range of contemporary homes so it ticks all the boxes for lots of homebuyers and we’re anticipating plenty of demand when these properties are released for sale.”
