Melbourne

Enjoy countryside views and access to a wide range of local amenities.

Ranging from three to five bedrooms, this mix of detached and semi-detached homes will give residents the chance to enjoy views across the local countryside and access to a wide range of local amenities including a nearby primary school.

22 spacious and sensitively designed new homes in this stunning village set on the eastern edge of the city of York.

Offering beautiful views across peaceful countryside, The Paddocks presents an increasingly rare opportunity: high-specification new homes in a picturesque rural setting, all just a short drive from York city centre.

The development will offer a selection of three, four and five-bedroomed homes, each boasting a superb standard of finish both inside and out. Clever design makes excellent use of each property’s already generous space, particularly in the ground floor layouts which offer light and airy family rooms. The Paddocks’ distinct layout – extending the established street scene of Melbourne village – means that every property enjoys spacious boundaries and a superb degree of privacy.

Each home also comes with the opportunity to purchase an additional plot of land at the rear, allowing interested parties to greatly extend an already generous garden at an affordable price.

Location

Melbourne is an attractive village within close proximity of York, Market Weighton and Pocklington. A bus service runs to York city centre, while the A1079 offers quick access to the A64 and beyond. For families, the village boasts a well-regarded three-star primary school, and many highly rated secondary schools can be found in the surrounding area. Melbourne residents enjoy a strong sense of community, with cricket, football and bowling clubs all present, as well as boat trips that run through nearby canals departing from the much-loved local pub.

Directions

Leaving York on the Hull Road (A1079), at the Grimston Bar roundabout take the third exit and immediately follow signs for Elvington on the B1228. Travel through both Elvington and its neighbouring village, Sutton Upon Derwent and continue right through into and out of Melbourne village where The Paddocks development will be seen on the right.
