Christmas shopping could take on a whole new meaning in Newton Kyme, near Boston Spa.

Award winning homebuilder Redrow has only a handful of homes remaining at two side by side developments amidst some beautiful North Yorkshire countryside – and almost all of them can be ready to move into before the end of the year.

That means lucky home owners could be decorating the Christmas tree, tucking into their turkey dinner, opening the presents and playing charades in the enviable surroundings of a brand new home.

Top of the present list are a selection of Georgian influenced four-bedroom townhouses and semis at St Andrew’s Place, Southbank, available from £304,950 to £369,950.

Also vying for a place on any discerning homebuyer’s wish-list are two luxurious Henley style four-bedroom detached homes at The Rectory next door. They’re priced at £524,950 each and are from Redrow’s popular Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), said: “Both of these developments are coming to a close and mark completion of our regeneration of the old Papyrus Works site. The results are simply stunning. We’ve created sought-after new homes in a beautifully landscaped setting.  The developments are close to woodland, open fields and the River Wharfe, yet within easy reach of Boston Spa and Tadcaster.

“As Christmas presents go, a new home here would be exceptional!”

The Regent Collection properties at St Andrew’s Place include the Wellington townhouse and the Montpellier semi, both with their spacious and well-appointed four-bedroom accommodation laid out over three floors. Features such as open plan kitchen/dining rooms and separate lounges, en-suite to master bedroom, a garden and off-road parking make them perfect for entertaining all year round.

Marketing manager Caroline Simpson bought a three-storey property at St Andrew’s Place with partner Nick Lambert last year. She said: “We loved this house because of the kitchen and dining area with French doors which open out onto the garden, we spend most of our time in here and it’s great when friends come. That’s when it comes into its own.”

Picture framer Mandy Brown and partner Kevin Traill also love their kitchen/dining room and separate lounge – but highlighted another feature as their favourite.

“The real wow factor for us was the top floor, which is the master bedroom and en-suite. I know some reserve that for guests but there was no way we were letting anyone else have that – it’s stunning and it’s ours!” Mandy said.

The remaining homes have similar attributes and all the advantages of being close to the shops and services of Boston Spa, Tadcaster and Wetherby.

The final homes at both developments are being sold from St Andrew’s Place, open Thursday to Monday inclusive 10am to 5.30pm. Call 01937 865702 or visit www.redrow.co.uk/standrews orwww.redrow.co.uk/therectory for more information.
