“We are proud to o er residential properties that bene t all buyer types, including helping  rst time buyers.”
After identifying a gap in the market for new build homes close to York city centre, we’ve recently completed phase one of our Connaught Square development.
This development features 14  ve to six- bedroom luxury family homes and we saw a high level of demand around the site, with a number of the houses sold prior
to completion.
Connaught Square is located just o  St Oswald’s Road, with some stunning aspects over the Ings and the River Ouse, and o ered us a rare opportunity to bring forward high speci cation, new build homes within easy walking distance of the city centre.
Originally, we purchased the Connaught
site with existing planning permission in place for residential development, but the permission was subsequently amended to increase the developable  oor area from 27,000 sq ft to 36,000 sq ft. This allowed us to create much bigger family homes, which are in high demand in the city.
Our previous development experience meant we were well placed to bring this project forward as we have developed
and hold a range of major residential developments in York, including Duncombe Place, Merchants Exchange, Dixons Yard and the largest apartment scheme in the city at Westgate.
Max Reeves, director at Helmsley Group, said: “New build homes within walking distance of York of any scale are extremely scarce. Those of this size and quality even more so.
“Consequently, they are proving very popular with the market to date. This re ects the wider demand for quality contemporary residential stock in sought- after areas such as Fulford.
“As a Yorkshire development and investment company, we are passionate about sensitive development. We are proud to o er residential properties that bene t all buyer types, including helping  rst time buyers
get a foot on the property ladder, as well as assisting local authorities in towns and cities to meet home building targets.”
