Promising start for new Wakefield homes

"Weve enjoyed an excellent start, taking the first off-plan reservation on our opening day. We also have plenty of interest in other properties available."

Redrow’s new homes off Westfield Road are transforming the site of the former West Yorkshire Police training facilities, which relocated to Carr Gate in 2014.

“We’ve enjoyed an excellent start, taking the first ‘off-plan’ reservation on our opening day,” says Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire).

“We also have plenty of interest in other properties available and have been talking to would-be customers who have existing homes to sell about how we can assist them via Mastermove, which helps find a buyer and contributes to estate agent’s fees.”

Redrow’s homes are also eligible for Help to Buy, the Government back equity loan which can reduce a customer’s initial outlay by up to 20% and means they may only need a 5% deposit to secure a brand new home.

St John’s Mews will eventually feature 112 two, three and four-bedroom homes from Redrow’s Georgian-influenced Regent Collection, which is in keeping with existing older properties in this part of Wakefield.

Community contributions that are associated with the development and will be paid to Wakefield Council include over half a million pounds towards local education.

Wakefield Westgate rail station is under a mile away and the development is opposite the highly respected Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, which is sure to add to the desirability of Redrow’s latest homes for families.

Initial prices at St John’s Mews are from £339,950 for a four-bedroom, mid-terrace Fitzroy townhouse with integral single garage, a property that combines external grandeur with spacious and flexible accommodation.

The Fitzroy includes a balcony off the first floor lounge, while the ground floor kitchen/diner opens onto the back garden through patio doors; the principal bedroom with en-suite is on the first floor, with three further bedrooms above. Bedroom two is a spacious double and also boasts an en-suite shower room, making it perfect as a guest bedroom or for an older child living at home. There’s a cloakroom/wc and separate laundry space on the ground floor too.

The initial sales release also includes the four-bedroom Montpellier semi, which boasts a master bedroom with en-suite, second double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and two further bedrooms and another bathroom on the floor above.  It also includes a triple parking space and is priced from £344,950. The top floor is ideal as a ‘hideaway’ for older children or guests, or the plethora of bathrooms means it would suit friends sharing.

The first homes at St John’s Mews are due to be ready for occupation by the end of this year or early 2019, when two fully furnished show homes will also be unveiled.

“By reserving in these early stages customers potentially have the pick of the plots and more scope to personalise their new home with a wide range of optional upgrades and extras via our online ‘My Redrow’ service,” Patsy adds. “They can also take advantage of pre-show home prices.”

Redrow’s sales centre on Westfield Road will usually be open Thursday to Monday inclusive from 10am to 5.30pm. Visit www.redrow.co.uk/stjohnsmews or call 01924 589480 for further details.
