Home of the Day – The ‘Holden’, David Wilson Homes

Posted 12 November 2019 by Keith Osborne

The WhatHouse? team's favourite new home for sale today is a four-bedroom house type available at developments across the country...

The WhatHouse? team reports on our current favourite new home for sale – today, we pick the very popular ‘Holden’ house type at Emmet’s Reach in Birkenshaw, West Yorkshire from David Wilson Homes.    

The ‘Holden’ is a double-fronted detached house that can appeal to all kinds of buyers, especially families and downsizers who still want a spacious and flexible home. At the front of the house is a study, and a sitting room with bay window. The kitchen is a perfect space for entertaining as its open-plan design includes a dining area and access to the back garden, and the walk-in glazed bay floods the room with natural light, while the separate utility room provides extra practical space. Upstairs comprises four double bedrooms, with the master bedroom offering an en suite, and a family bathroom for all to share.  

Plot 72 here at Emmet’s Reach is priced from £409,995 and currently comes with a free kitchen upgrade and a £12,000 deposit boost. David Wilson Homes offers Help to Buy on all its developments for properties up to £600,000. 

Jason Hearn, sales director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “The ‘Holden’ style home is an excellent option for a variety of homebuyers with different priorities and lifestyles. Families can be easily accommodated with the thoughtfully designed living space, as everyone has the freedom of large bedrooms whilst the home still features generous social areas for spending quality time together.” 

Earlier this year we saw just one example of a couple who moved into a ‘Holden’ at a David Wilson Homes development on the edge of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales.
