Development pulls in outsiders
THE Pastures development in Hovingham has proved popular with buyers from outside Yorkshire. Developer Trilandium say that although it assumed most of the 16 luxurious four, five and six bedroom homes would be sold to those with young families, they have been a magnet for downsizers from areas including Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
“In many cases it is cash buyers who have visited the area on holiday and loved it so much they want to live here,” says a Trilandium spokesman. Hovingham, which is seven miles from Malton, was voted one of the best villages to escape the rat race. Houses at The Pastures start at £475,000. For details visit www. trilandium.com
