Last chance to buy at South Yorkshire development

House hunters in South Yorkshire have been urged to act now as time is running out to snap up a new home in the charming village of Royston.

The Persimmon Homes’ Scholars Gate development is approaching completion, with just seven properties remaining – and no immediate plans to open a new site in this area.

Simon Whalley, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire, said: “We have been delighted with the success of Scholars Gate and believe its location has been a key attraction.

“Royston is a thriving community close to open countryside yet easily accessible to Barnsley, Wakefield and the M1.

“We currently have no immediate plans to return to the area – it’s always sad to be leaving a site, however it is rewarding to hand over our final set of keys, leaving the newly established community to flourish.

“One lucky house hunter can get our four bedroom showhome, which is ready to move into, complete with a number of extra fixture and fittings.”

For just £214,950 the four-bedroom Lumley showhome comes complete with carpets, integrated kitchen appliances, feature lights, curtains, blinds and fitted wardrobes, allowing the new owner to have a head start on settling in.

Simon added: “We have a mix of three bedroom semi-detached properties as well as a couple of four bedroom detached house designs, with prices starting at £129,950. And with the various house buying packages available including Help to Buy, or Persimmon’s part exchange and home change schemes, moving can be a lot easier and more affordable than buyers might have first thought.”
