A fantastic location

This very special development achieves a balance of village life with easy access to the city and has been thoughtfully designed to promote sustainable living set amidst green open spaces, leafy parks and lakeside walks engaging homeowners with the nature surrounding them. Striking patio glazing featuring on many homes here brings the outdoors in too. So it's easy to see why buyers seeking a unique home in an exclusive community are heading to Derwenthorpe.

Pedestrians will have priority over vehicles in the residential areas of Derwenthorpe with a variety of transport options available. Walking and cycling routes are an integral part of the scheme so that residents can make easier connections to local transport.

A car club scheme offers the opportunity to have access to a shared car and to help residents to share car travel. The Derwenthorpe philosophy is to help reduce dependency on car use and support a regular, bespoke bus service. It is an ambition that no home will be more than 400 meters from a bus stop.

The buying process

Buying a home follows a set process. Here’s a quick overview, but don’t worry if it seems complicated – our team will be happy to answer any questions you have.

View our detailed guide for more information on the process

Find a solicitor

You’ll need a solicitor that specialises in conveyance to look after all the paperwork. We can put you in touch with one if needs be.

There are plenty of options to consider when it comes to a mortgage. Once you’ve done your research (or spoken to a mortgage adviser – again, we can put you in touch if you like), you should seek an agreement in principle.

Get a valuation and survey

Your mortgage lender will want confirmation the home is worth what you’re paying for it. They’ll organise the valuation for you – this will involve a fee.

Complete legal work

Your solicitor will look after this for you. It’s all about formally transferring ownership from us to you, and checking there are no legal obstacles in the way.

Exchange contracts

Once the legal work is complete, your solicitor will exchange contracts with us. This is when you pay your deposit and commit to the deal taking place.

Complete and move in

On the date of completion, you become the legal owner of your new home. Collect the keys and make yourself comfy!
