Handful Of Homes Remain For Sale At Iconic York Site

Posted 24 January 2022 by Keith Osborne

Five two-bedroom homes can still be purchased at the major development adjacent to the racecourse...

Just five homes remain for sale at The Chocolate Works, a landmark development from David Wilson Homes in York.

The Chocolate Works is the former head office of Terry's Chocolate Factory, opened by the Terry family in 1926, which operated for nearly 80 years. It is now one of the city’s best-known and most sought-after residential sites. Just a 25-minute walk from the city centre, these apartments are adjacent to York Knavesmire, the racecourse and acres of open parkland.

The remaining homes are all two-bedroom properties. One is Plot 279, a two-bedroom second-floor apartment in Thistle House which has just been reduced from £340,000 to £330,000. The large windows bring lots of natural light to this corner plot, which has a fitted, open-plan kitchen/living room with sliding doors to the private terrace. Both bedrooms are generous doubles and bedroom one comes with an en suite shower room. There’s also a family bathroom.

This home can be purchased through the Deposit Unlock scheme, devised in collaboration with lenders and the housebuilding industry. It enables first-time buyers and existing homeowners to purchase a new-build home with a 5% deposit (terms and conditions apply) while providing a competitively priced mortgage.

For something a little different, the ‘George’ is a coach house enjoying an elevated position above four private garages. This has an open-plan kitchen and living area with two sets of French doors leading out to a large balcony. Two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom with separate shower complete this home. It was £355,000 but has been reduced to £335,000 and comes with quartz worktops and flooring included, worth over £8,000. Furthermore, Deposit Boost is worth £5,000 on this property and David Wilson Homes will pay £1,000 towards moving costs.

Prices of the remaining homes range from £320,000 to £345,000. Find out more about The Chocolate Works from David Wilson Homes.
