The first phase of former MOD properties for sale in a North Yorkshire village have been snapped up after the agents were ‘inundated’ with calls about them. All eight of the three-bedroom homes at Linton on Ouse released to the market have been sold to local buyers.
The properties 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 who has been handling the sales, said: “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 £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 York.
Stacy Whitehead, marketing manager at Annington, which owns the properties, added: “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.”
