Living in York
York isn’t just situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, it’s also a highly sought-after and desirable place to live that often features on ‘UK best cities’ lists. As such, you’ll be delighted to know that our new homes in York can be found in and around some of the city’s most popular areas and all of them have the delights of this celebrated and popular place on their doorstep.
The city is perhaps best known for its plethora of historical sights and attractions. From the awe-inspiring Minster to Roman ruins, Viking trails and the ancient city walls, you certainly won’t be short on amazing things to see and enjoy every day you walk the cobbled streets. In addition to this, there are other top visitor attractions like the National Railway Museum, The York Dungeon and legendary ‘fact’ that there are 365 pubs – one for each day of the year.
Alongside the old there’s also a great mix of the new, mainly in the form of more than 2,000 popular high street stores and a number of excellent shopping centres and supermarkets. You’re also covered for entertainment and nightlife, as on top of all the pubs there’s a variety of great restaurants, as well as several concert venues. In short, there’s always something fun going on.
York is also one of the best-connected cities in the country, thanks mainly to its major train station which serves a number of cross-country services. There are direct lines to London and Edinburgh – the station in fact sits halfway between both – as well as major surrounding cities like Leeds and Manchester. The A1(M) and M62 are also only a short car journey away, so if you need to travel you’ll be able to do so with ease.
York of course also has plenty to offer people of all ages, whether you’re looking for somewhere to raise a family, new opportunities for work or even your retirement. As such our new homes in York could provide you with the perfect place to live, whatever your buying needs might be.
The Surrounding Area
In the areas surrounding our new homes in York you’re also spoilt for choice in terms of sights and amenities. While you can quickly get to neighbouring cities like those we’ve mentioned above, the real benefit of living here is that the stunning Yorkshire countryside is all around you.
In just under an hour’s drive you can reach the coast and popular seaside towns like Whitby, while to the north of the city is the North York Moors National Park. Equally, the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are situated to the west. Each of these locations offers incredible scenery as well as pleasant walks, biking routes and top outdoor activities.
If that wasn’t enough, the surrounding Yorkshire towns and villages offer their own charm and appeal; there are several National Trust and English Heritage spots and a number of camp sites. All this again ensures there’s a lot to enjoy for everyone.
