Snap Up A New Apartment
The first phase of a new residential development in the heart of Skipton sold out in just two weeks.
Half of the 46 apartments at Providence Quarter, adjacent to the town’s High Street, went on the market before Christmas as part of the initial release and were snapped up by first time buyers, professionals and downsizers.
The centre piece of the development is the former Skipton Building Society office, one described by Prince Charles as an ‘out-of-scale monster’, which has undergone a sympathetic transformation to provide the best in contemporary living.
Guy Taylor of multi-away winning developer Candelas says: “We have taken an eclectic mix of buildings and use our regeneration expertise to create the perfect space in the perfect place, right in the heart of the best place to live in Britain, according to a report in The Sunday Times last year.”
The apartments at Providence Quarter offer a choice of one and two bedrooms and enjoy a generous living space as well as spacious outdoor areas, including covered seating decks or balconies.
The majority of apartments have an en-suite to the master bedroom. All residents have access to a communal roof garden with far reaching rural views, and a dedicated parking space.
A separate, secure hobby room is also allocated to each apartment; the ideal place to store golf clubs, bikes and other recreational accessories.
The top quality specification includes a range of integrated kitchen appliances such as a dishwasher and fridge/freezer, while the bathroom and en-suite/shower room incorporates fixtures and fittings from Porcelanosa.
Buyers can choose between real oak engineered timber flooring or carpets in the living room and kitchen areas. All bathrooms compromise porcelain tiled flooring and fully tiled walls.
Apartments at Providence Quarter start at just £95,000 for a one bed and £125,000 for a two bed. The development is also approved by the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme meaning buyers only need a deposit of five per cent.
The phased release has ensured apartments are still available in all sizes and price ranges, however the developer is encouraging potential buyers to make contact quickly.
“Based on current inquiry levels we have every confidence that the remaining apartments will sell quickly, so it really is a case of hurry while stocks last.
“The availability of Help to Buy should be of particular interest to first time buyers who have traditionally found the North Yorkshire housing market restrictive,” says Guy.
