The first phase of former MOD properties in the North Yorkshire village of Linton-on-Ouse have proven immensely popular with local first time buyers hoping to take their first step onto the property ladder. The first phase of three-bedroom homes have been snapped up, with all of the first eight properties now already reserved.

Most of the homes, on sale through local agent William H Brown, have been sold to local buyers, attracted by the great location and attractive price point. The village school, Linton-on-Ouse Primary, is within easy walking distance and is rated as Good by Ofsted, and the village has a shop, pub restaurant and Post Office.

The generously sized semi-detached family homes are in a well-established residential location and benefit from large rear gardens, private garages and driveway parking. As with most Annington properties, they have had light refurbishment throughout, including new carpets and internal redecoration, so they are clean, fresh and ready to move in to.

Karen Watson, Branch Manager at William H Brown, comments: “Our office has been inundated with enquiries. These properties in Linton-on-Ouse have proven extremely desirable, thanks to their attractive rural setting, and the homes themselves tick the right boxes for pretty much every buyer.” The properties are priced from just £245,000, and feature a living room, separate dining room, generously sized kitchen and WC downstairs, and three bedrooms and family bathroom upstairs.

The village of Linton-on-Ouse is named for the River Ouse on the south of the village which stretches down to the historic city of York, around 10 miles and half an hour away by car through rolling fields and countryside. The historic lock building is now a country pub, and pleasure craft still go up and down the navigation, which also has tow paths offering invigorating walking routes.

Stacy Whitehead, Marketing Manager at Annington, adds: “We are delighted to see these comfortable homes about to be put to good use again, filled with families and first time buyers. There is a national shortage of three-bedroom homes, so we’re not surprised that the majority were reserved so quickly, especially given the competitive price. We are looking forward to releasing more homes to the market shortly, so we would urge anyone looking for this kind of property to register their interest with our selling agent so they will be the first to know when they become available.”

Despite its rural outlook, Linton-on-Ouse is well connected, with York railway station offering onward travel via direct rail services to Manchester (1h 30m), Glasgow (3h 45m), and London King’s Cross (2h 5m).
