No less than 25 per cent of the 16 properties at Walkers Court, off Audby Lane, were sold off-plan, and now estate agents Linley and Simpson say since they have been allowed to reopened, interested has grown.

They form part of a £3m brace of developments by Illuminating Developments that sit side-by-side.

“The off-plan sales, achieved so soon after being unveiled to the community, was a signal of the strength of the new homes market in Wetherby,” said Director of Land and New Homes at Linley & Simpson, David Waddington.

“Whilst the Coronavirus lockdown affected the property market, we are now seeing renewed interest in Walkers Court.

“The development sits in a bullseye location for Leeds and York commuters with its easy access to the A1(M).

“It meets a growing need in Wetherby for this style of living, at a highly-competitive price. All the apartments boast an impressive specification.”

Featuring a selection of one and two bedroom apartments on two levels, the twin developments will continue to be known as Marston House and Fairfax House to commemorate Wetherby’s close links to the English Civil War.

One-bedroom apartments start at £145,000 and two-bedroom at £170,000.
