Phase one of the work is scheduled to finish in early 2019. A total of 14 four, five and six-bedroom houses will be built at the scheme off St Oswald’s Road, with some stunning aspects over the Ings and the River Ouse.
Max Reeves, Director at Helmsley Group, said: “This is a rare opportunity for York buyers looking for a high specification, new build home. They’re within easy walking distance of the city centre, with little else
to match their build quality and finish.”

Staff from Helmsley Group scaled the Yorkshire three peaks in under 10 hours to raise money for a charity that funds research for a rare form of child epilepsy.
Staff, friends and family set off on the challenge in August.
The 20 hopefuls aimed to raise over £5,000 for Dravet Syndrome UK, which funds medical research and raises awareness to help families of children with this rare and devastating form of epilepsy. The team covered 24 miles and 5200ft of ascents and is still looking for further donations to help them reach their target.
Ed Harrowsmith from Helmsley Group and godparent of a child diagnosed with the disease, says: “Both my friends and my godson are extremely positive and inspire me and everyone in their lives, despite this life changing diagnosis.”
“We did the challenge to raise awareness of the disease and also to help support the charity in funding much needed research and would be grateful for any donations that can help us reach our target.” Charles Harrison from Colenso adds: “It was a massive challenge and I think I underestimated it; it certainly pushed us to our limits. Any help readers can give this incredible cause is appreciated.”
