City centre housing site is opened

A regional builder is expecting high demand for its new city centre living in Wakefield.

Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire has begun work on 70 new homes at Clarence Heights, off Park Avenue, bringing much-needed houses to the area.

Simon Whalley, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire, said:

“This is the first time we have built in such a central location in Wakefield and we are delighted to have secured such an attractive setting.”

“Clarence Heights looks out over Thornes, Clarence and Holmfield Park, its many attractions including a rose garden, children’s play area, sport pitches, athletic tracks as well as being a popular venue for galas and events.”

“The location of this site is ideal for both professionals and families, with the buzz of the city centre and the beauty of a tranquil and picturesque park all just a short walk away.”

“We are working towards autumn completions and are encouraging potential buyers to act quickly to help secure their preferred property within the site.”

Clarence Heights is within walking distance to Wakefield city centre and will feature a collection of two, three, and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached houses.

Simon added:

“We believe our range of homes will appeal to families, first-time buyers and investors. And with the Government-backed Help to Buy Scheme, there has never been a better time to buy as customers realise how far their money can go.”

Under the scheme, people buying a new-build home only require a five percent deposit along with a 75 percent mortgage. The Government provides a 20 percent equity loan, which is interest and repayments free for the first five years.
