David Smith, head of sales at Mulgrave Properties, said buyers are looking for more green space.

Mulgrave Properties has experienced a 60% increase in sales in 2020 compared to the previous year with the demand for properties in York and surrounding area continuing to rise.

Mulgrave is set to launch the show home at the much anticipated phase two of its Barley Folde development in Pocklington at the end of this month.

The development of two, three and four bedroom homes has already proven popular with four properties already sold off plan.

Julie Watts, senior sales negotiator, said: “Pocklington is an increasingly desirable place to live for all ages.

“Following on from phase one, we have found that the demand in Pocklington is for the smaller two and three bedroom homes, both for first time buyers who are looking for an affordable first home, and for downsizers looking for a convenient location and relaxed lifestyle.”

David Smith, head of sales at Mulgrave Properties, said: “This year has changed the way people live and work forever, and this has led to many people revaluating their current home and looking for something that better serves their new requirements.

“Many of our purchasers this year, particularly recently, have been couples and families looking to relocate from larger towns and cities to quieter villages which can offer them more green space, yet still within easy reach of those busier places with good road or rail links nearby.”
