The last of the Burnby design, ready for completion in May.
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.
THE BURNBY While its open kitchen and dining area already provide a wonderful family space, the adjoining snug featured in the Burnby is sure to delight: this bright and open garden room offers a wonderful place to relax. Upstairs are four large double bedrooms, with an en suite to the master. A double garage sits alongside the front of the property.
