Eager house hunters have snapped up luxury homes worth more than £2m at the launch of a highly-anticipated new development in the idyllic East Yorkshire village of Welton.
Turpin’s Chase is the latest development by family-owned housebuilder Beal Homes and will feature three, four and five bedroom homes, and three bedroom bungalows, with prices ranging from £305,000 to £495,000.
Dozens of house hunters attended the launch at Beal’s head office at Bridgehead business park in Hessle when the first 11 of the 52 homes at Turpin’s Chase were released.
David Knowles and partner Zoe Hubbert, who currently live in a nearby East Riding village, reserved a four bedroom Canterbury home at the launch weekend.
David, 38, a Systems Development Manager for the NHS, said: “We’ve renovated a house before and we now want a new build. We looked at other housebuilders but we saw Turpin’s Chase and Beal has the edge on quality and value for money.
“The Canterbury has everything we want without having to compromise, including a double garage, a kitchen/diner and an en-suite bathroom.”
Maths lecturer Richard Davis, 50, from Elloughton, who reserved a three bedroom Butterwick home, said: “I’m really happy. I like the area and the style of Beal homes. The quality is great and the location suits me perfectly for traveling to work.
“There is a nice mix of houses in Welton and the Beal developments complement the area. I’m really looking forward to living there.”
David and Theresa White, from Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire, also attended the launch weekend as they await the release of Beal Homes’ four bedroom Swainby home at Turpin’s Chase.
Office manager Theresa, 50, said: “We love Welton and the quality and choice Beal offers because we have the flexibility to create exactly what we want.
“We’ve seen show homes at other Beal developments and we’re really excited waiting for the Swainby to be released. It will be our forever home and the location is perfect.”
Sue Waudby, Sales and Marketing Director at Beal Homes, said: “We’re delighted with the success of the Turpin’s Chase launch, which confirmed the high levels of interest we have had in this development.
“Welton is a lovely village, in a great location with excellent schools, facilities and activities all on the doorstep. It’s one of East Yorkshire’s most sought-after locations and the perfect place for semi-rural living.
“The strong early sales also indicate the buyers are keen to secure a new home at Turpin’s Chase as early as possible.
“Customers buying off plan can take the fullest advantage of the opportunity we offer to buyers to personalise the design and features of their new home, including changing the internal layout, to ensure it fits their lifestyle and tastes perfectly.”
The charming village of Welton is centred around the historic St Helen’s Church, thought to be around 900 years old, and the picturesque Wolds Way, Elloughton Dale and Brantingham Dale are all close by.
Turpin’s Chase follows Beal’s successful previous development in Welton, Turpin’s Heath, which was completed in 2019. Both developments are named after infamous highwayman Dick Turpin, who was captured at the site of Welton’s 17th century coaching inn, The Green Dragon, in 1738.
Beal Homes has won a host of local, regional and national awards recognising the quality of its homes and developments, as well as the exceptional service the company offers to buyers, including five Yorkshire Housebuilder of the Year Awards over the past six years.
This year Beal was awarded a prestigious five star top rating for customer satisfaction by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) for the second year running.
