House development sucess

Over 80 per cent of properties built so far on a new housing estate in Whitby have sold within the first month.

So far 11 of the 13 homes available at Phoenix Park, the Barratt Homes development off Kingfisher Drive have been sold.

This early success sees Phoenix Park become one of the fastest selling developments within the Barratt Homes Yorkshire East region.

There is a mix of three and four bedroom homes and prices range from £194995 to £229,995 which Barratt says are perfect for those wanting to get on or move up the property ladder.

Sales manager Debbie Foster said: “It’s not a surprise the development has been so successful. It is in a fantastic area with exceptional surroundings including the coastline and Moors. The area offers excellent commuting opportunities for professionals working in the North East. Paired with Whitby’s beautiful setting, famous heritage and strong tourism links, make it an ideal location for many house buyers.”
