Top-rated new homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire

The whole of Yorkshire is renowned across the UK for its stunning greenery, friendly people and rich cultural heritage. But what makes the East Riding of Yorkshire so special? Come and find out, as we explore the county at large before examining some of the best new homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Where is the East Riding of Yorkshire?

The East Riding of Yorkshire is the easternmost part of what was the traditional county of Yorkshire. Today, it forms its own county, just east of the city of York itself. Its eastern border is its North Sea coastline, with North Yorkshire to the north and Lincolnshire to the south.

Why live in the East Riding of Yorkshire?

If you’re looking to find your own piece of the quiet country life, the East Riding of Yorkshire is one of the best places to start. Like the rest of Yorkshire, the East Riding is a county of rolling hills that offer infinite varieties of green. It is a rich, open place that nature lovers will endlessly enjoy exploring. If you happen to be an ornithologist, the East Riding of Yorkshire has some of the best bird watching in the whole of the UK.

Specific highlights of this county’s amazing natural beauty include the Yorkshire Wolds, a sea of green hills and valleys that rolls from the coast down to the Humber Bridge. There’s also Bridlington, which offers the quintessential Yorkshire seaside holiday experience. Here you’ll find the Bempton chalk cliffs, home to over half a million nesting seabirds.

As for places to live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to rustic idylls. Since tourism and agriculture are the two leading industries of the county, it has a well-developed network of beautiful hamlets, villages and historic market towns that attract new residents as much as holidaymakers. Beverley is a particularly attractive Georgian market town, with its towering Gothic minster, bustling local market and relaxing café culture.

What are average property prices in the East Riding of Yorkshire like?

Despite all its good points, the East Riding of Yorkshire still offers excellent value for money. In December 2021, Zoopla recorded the county’s average property price at £195,000. This is £93,000 less than the national average for England, which was £288,000 in September 2021, according to the ONS.

Admittedly, prices are on the rise here. By Zoopla’s estimates, house prices in the East Riding of Yorkshire have risen by 5.26% during 2021. However, given the highly competitive pricing of the market in general, it’s possible to find excellent property prospects across the county, even in the desirable hotspots along the coast.
