About Elegance

Elegance is a collection of three bedroom townhouses to four bedroom family detached homes. The development is positioned in the historic village of Ackworth, a picturesque spot surrounded by Yorkshire countryside located 8 miles away from the thriving city of Wakefield. 

Ackworth is conveniently located between Pontefract, Barnsley and Doncaster, and is the ideal place to find the perfect balance between enjoying peace and quiet knowing a thriving social life isn’t far away. The village is a popular choice for families looking to be in the catchment area for prestigious schools, as well as those who want to reduce their commute from surrounding towns and cities.

“As well as pubs and bars, we have nice places to eat, all within walking distance. We are always bumping into neighbours if we go out on an evening – it's such a social place to live.” 
Nichola-Kate, Elegance

UP AND COMING

Ackworth’s location between Pontefract, Barnsley and Doncaster makes it perfectly placed to benefit from redevelopment works taking place in the towns.

A new highway, known as the Wakefield Eastern Relief Road, has recently opened between the A642 and A638, making travelling to nearby towns and cities even easier.

One of the village’s main draws is its schools, including the prestigious Ackworth School. More new homes in Ackworth are being built in order to meet this demand and to place families in the most sought after catchment areas.

Finance

Whether you’re buying your first home or an existing homeowner looking for more space, we will guide you through the options available to help buy your new home.

The government backed Help to Buy scheme allows you to secure your new home with a 5% deposit. 

With our Assisted Selling Plan, we will organise the sale of your existing home for the best possible price, allowing you to reserve your new home with us. In some cases we will offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.

The recent Stamp Duty reform has divided house prices into different tax bands to make buying a new home more affordable. 

You can also personalise your home with an Optional Upgrade Package. Your Customer Experience Manager will advise on our range of standard and optional upgrades, including wardrobes, kitchen appliances and flooring packages.

Which option is best for you?

HELP TO BUY EQUITY LOAN 


Buy a new home with 5% deposit

This scheme allows you to own 100% of your home and only pay 80% of the price upfront. You provide the 5% deposit and the government will lend you up to 20% as an equity loan. You can then apply for a mortgage based on the remaining 75% of the house price.
 
The equity loan is interest-free for five years and the scheme is available on new build homes up to the value of £600,000.

PART EXCHANGE

We will buy your home


Our Part Exchange option means we could buy your home for 100% of its market value, leaving you free to buy one of ours.

This means there will be no estate agent fees to pay and no chain, helping you move into your new home sooner than expected. 

 
With Part Exchange, you will have an offer for your home within five days. We can give you a guaranteed price for your existing property so you can get moving.

For more information and to find out if the Part Exchange option is right for you, please contact a Customer Experience Manager. 
 

ASSISTED SELLING PLAN


A bespoke selling plan for homeowners

The Assisted Selling Plan is designed to help homeowners climb the property ladder. As part of the scheme, we will organise the sale of your existing home, making sure you receive the best possible price. This will allow you to reserve your new home with us.

We will create a personal selling plan, including a review of the property market in your area and an agreed sale price for your home based on two independent valuations. We will work closely with the nominated estate agent to arrange all viewings and enquiries. All offers will be presented to you, and our Customer Experience Manager will guide you through the negotiation process. 







Once you accept an offer we will track the sale of your home, while you start planning for your brand new one.
 
If your chosen home is ready within a four-month period, we may offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.
