Phase three of Shepherd’s Rest released

We’re happy to announce the latest release of homes at our sought-after Shepherd’s Rest development in Beverley – all of which are now available without an additional stamp duty charge.

Consisting of a range of family homes, the newly released properties are perfect for families looking for room to grow and a neighbourhood with a real community spirit.

And if people reserve now, buyers have the unique opportunity to choose their own fixtures and fittings, helping to create the home of their dreams!

Houses available in the phase three release include a number of unique, three-storey properties: The Cheviot and The Swaledale. These bespoke properties are contemporary, high specification four-bedroom homes, with plenty of space for family life.

With underfloor heating to the ground floor as standard, The Cheviot has four good size bedrooms and two family size bathrooms alongside a social breakfast kitchen, useful utility room and downstairs WC and garage, making it ideal for growing families.

The Swaledale, boasts three bathrooms, as well as a downstairs WC, four generous size bedrooms and a dining kitchen that is great for entertaining. Underfloor heating to the ground floor also comes as standard.

Homeowners can choose from a range of bespoke kitchens, tiling and flooring options for their new home.

The new stamp duty holiday also means that all of our homes at Shepherd’s Rest are now available without having to pay an additional tax. This is an amazing new rule that will save buyers thousands of pounds! But this tax holiday is only available for a few months, so we would urge anyone who may be interested to get in touch soon in order to take full advantage of the potential savings.

We’ve introduced a series of new measures to keep both staff and visitors safe, with potential buyers having the chance to view the Shepherd’s Rest show home with our Sales Manager Trina by-appointment only.

Properties in phase three of Shepherd’s Rest start from £285,000. The Shepherd’s Rest sales office is currently open from 10am-4pm, from Thursday to Monday.

Buying your new home: your questions answered

As we’re now moving out of lockdown and the property market starts moving again, you may be getting ready to move house. But we know that it’s still a nervous time for some and buyers have a lot of questions. What’s changed? Is it safe to visit a show home? And what about financial concerns?vWe’re here to answer these questions and provide you with the most up-to-date information from our site and sales teams.

1. What’s changed?

  • Strictly by appointment only – we are not allowing passers-by to visit the show home/sales office. Our sales office is now open 10am – 4pm, Thursday – Monday and you’re able to come and visit by appointment only. This is being done to limit the number of people coming in and out.
  • Arriving safely:  Ample parking is available and we’ve ensured that there’s a safe distance between cars. Our Sales Manager, Trina, will welcome you and will be sat behind a screen during your visit to maintain social distancing.
  • The buying process: The buying process is still exactly the same. However, there are safety measures now in place with regards estate agent appointments and viewings. Everyone is working hard to make sure that you are safe and feel comfortable.

2. Is it safe to visit a show home?

  •  The short answer is: yes. We have been careful to introduce a series of new measures that will keep both staff and visitors safe.
  • Limited number of viewings – we’re reducing the number of people entering the show home at one time. Booking your slot will make sure we can manage numbers safely and efficiently. We are taking details of each customer for track and trace purposes.
  • Staying safe inside: Masks and hand sanitising stations are now available upon arrival. We’re also advising that visitors don’t use the toilets at the show home and avoid touching door handles, where possible. You’ll be guided through the show home, as normal – with social distancing measures in place, of course.
  • Health concerns: If you have booked to come and look around our show home, but have since experienced health problems, please do let us know. Rebooking your slot is a simple process.

3. I have financial concerns about buying a property, what can I do?

  • It’s been a strange and uncertain time for us all. But please be assured, purchasing a home through Risby Homes is a safe and secure process. We’re a family-run, local developer that really cares about our buyers. We know it’s hard to find the ‘dream home’. So if you decide that one of our properties is the one for you, we can help make your dream home a reality. If you have any financial concerns just let us know. We’ve been doing this for a long time, so any question or worry you may have – we’ve undoubtedly heard it before.
  • We work with Stanifords estate agents, who are also on-hand to provide advice and recommend trusted financial advisors and solicitors.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment to discuss your move, please get in touch with our Sales Manager Trina Henderson on: or 07376 110 229.

I’ve reserved a Risby Homes property, has this process been affected?

Trina, our Sales Manager, is in touch with all buyers every week, relaying any new information. As soon as we receive any news, we will let you know.

Some words of encouragement for us all from one of our buyers:

Thank you for the update, Trina. Bricks and mortar can wait. We must all learn to be patient, careful, mindful and respectful to others if we are to emerge safe and healthy from this.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch. We hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time.
