The Yorkshire division of Bellway Homes says its exclusive enclave of townhouses at its St John’s View development in Menston has reached the brink of being completely sold out with only four properties remaining.

Hillside at St John’s View, built around a central garden in the heart of the development, showcases a collection of 17 three-storey homes, each of which offers over 1,600 sq. ft. of living space.

Paula Murdock, Yorkshire’s sales manager, said: “Demand has been incredibly high in all the properties on the St John’s development and particularly the Hillside homes. It’s easy to see why demand for these homes is so high because the ground floor offers the buyer so much flexibility, and offers the perfect space for those working from home – something a lot of the population have had to adapt their homes for.”

“Buyers of townhouses in other developments in Yorkshire have unleashed their creativity, transforming these versatile spaces into a myriad of functional wonders. From games rooms to guest suites, yoga spaces to art studios, garden rooms to libraries, the possibilities are endless which is just one of the reasons we have seen so much success.”

Townhouses are traditionally associated with city centre living, but Bellway have introduced them into more rural locations which has proved extremely popular; especially among downsizers and urban dwellers looking for a more relaxed pace of life.

“The interest in the homes in Hillside has been high and that has been reflected in the strong sales we have enjoyed since we opened,” added Paula.
