Helmsley Group, the York based property specialist, has unveiled Aura, a city centre development aimed at helping first-time buyers to get a foot on the property ladder.

The move comes as the Government this week set out plans to restart England’s housing market, which has effectively been shut since the coronavirus lockdown.

Supported by help-to-buy, the Aura development is made up of 14 one and two-bed apartments, in a sought-after location, within walking distance of York city centre.

Located on Hallfield Road, residents can benefit from the development’s close proximity to Morrisons, Greggs, Waitrose and Lidl, among others. Each apartment comes with private parking and is equipped with superfast hyperoptic broadband.

Helmsley is committed to reducing carbon emissions, so the sustainability of the development was important. The Aura development is located next to a national cycle path, so each apartment developed as part of the scheme will have secure under-cover bike storage, as well as parking spaces equipped with EV charging points.

Max Reeves, development director at Helmsley Group, said: “We are really pleased to unveil our latest development. Not only does Aura echo our ethos of sustainable construction, but as it is located next to a national cycle transport network, we hope that the development will also encourage further consideration of sustainable transportation.”

He continued: “Centrally located property is hard to come by in York, and what is available is often out of the price range of those looking to purchase their first home. With our help-to-buy supported development, we are proud to be able to give first-time buyers the opportunity to live closer to the heart of the city centre, in housing that is of the highest residential standards, without breaking the bank, as well as giving a boost to the local economy.”

Prices start from £132,000 with help-to-buy. For more information contact: https://www.your-move.co.uk/estate-agent/york.
