Nestled in a leafy location in the village of Strensall, York, Annington is set to launch its latest collection of two and three-bedroom homes this summer. It comes as research by Rightmove reveals demand for homes in the north eastern city has increased substantially year on year since 2020.1

Scott Anscomb, Managing Director at selling agents Your Move Anscombs, comments: “Strensall has a lot to offer potential buyers, it is perfectly positioned in a charming rural setting, while only being a short drive away from York city centre. Data from Rightmove shows that stock levels are less than half compared to previous years, and despite the lack of homes for sale, demand from buyers remains high. We expect these properties to be very popular and enable many buyers to take their long-awaited step onto the property ladder.”

The former MOD properties tick a lot of boxes for a wide range of prospective buyers and have been given a new lease of life thanks to light refurbishment works.

Ideally positioned off Howard Road, Strensall presents an opportunity for service personnel and first-time buyers to purchase their first home in a charming village. Residents are within walking distance of grocery shops, a post office, doctor’s surgery, football pitches and a Special Area of Conservation, Strensall Common. The Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy is in the village and the properties are in the catchment for the highly regarded Huntington Secondary School for which courtesy buses are provided for students to and from the village.

York has more attractions per square miles than anywhere else in the UK. The layered history of York can be discovered via walking tours through the cobbled streets, York Minster, York Art Gallery and Yorkshire Museum are also cultural hotspots in the city centre. There are plenty of restaurants and local cafes in the city and a good mix of high street stores, as well as independent sellers, found across the city centre and in the famous Shambles Market.

Louise Saunders, Sales and Marketing Manager for Annington, adds: “Annington is committed to providing much-needed housing to local communities in prime locations across the UK. We’re thrilled that Strensall is one of them. The village provides the perfect location for this development as it’s positioned with established public transport links and 20 minutes from the larger city of York, but it’s nestled in a picturesque location of the countryside so you get the best of both worlds. I’m looking forward to watching this new community blossom as residents begin to move in and make these refurbished houses their homes.”

Strensall has strong transport links with the 5, 5a and 100 bus routes linking the town to York city centre, while the A64 allows a speedy journey to Leeds in just over 50 minutes. York Railway Station enables residents to reach London Kings Cross in under two hours and Edinburgh within two hours and 30 minutes.

Prices start from £235,000 for a two-bedroom semi-detached home. To find out more about the properties for sale in Strensall, please contact the selling agent, Your Move Anscombs, on 01904 621 532, or visit www.your-move.co.uk.
