We’ve been delighted with the success of our Connaught Court scheme, with all eight properties in the latest phase being sold to homeowners.
We launched this phase of the development – Connaught Gardens, off St. Oswald’s Road in Fulford – last year following high demand for houses at the site and positive levels of activity in the residential property market. And they didn’t remain on the market for long!
The eight homes, sold through agents Hudson Moody, comprise bespoke designed four-, five-, and six-bedroom houses, located in one of York’s most sought-after residential areas.
Built to a traditional design, each house features under-floor heating, smart home technology and top-of-the-range security systems. Buyers have also benefited from a complimentary interior design consultation.
The Connaught properties are semi-rural, offering stunning views over the meadows and marshes of the Ings, while also being situated close to a host of popular amenities.
We originally purchased the Connaught site with an existing planning permission in place for residential development and subsequently amended the permission to increase the developable floor area from 27,000 sq ft to 36,000 sq ft, creating space for a development of 14 high-quality homes.
Connaught Square, the first phase of the development, generated strong public interest, with a number of the houses being sold prior to completion.
Max Reeves, development director at Helmsley Group, said: “High-specification new-build homes, especially of this size and quality, are hard to come by, and we anticipated strong demand at Connaught Gardens.
“Our instincts were correct, and we’ve been delighted by the response from the market
to these beautiful homes. We look forward to bringing similar quality schemes to the market over the coming months.”
Tarnia Hudson of Hudson Moody added: “This is one of the most prestigious developments of its kind in the Fulford area of York and we’ve not been surprised by buyer interest.
“The development’s accessibility to the city centre and main road networks is enviable and that, coupled with the exceptionally high specification, parking and garaging provision and sizeable gardens with open aspect views, sets these exclusive homes apart
from the rest.”
