About Hungate

Hungate is a riverside scheme within the historic city walls of York. Just a short walk from the city centre and its many shops, restaurants and transport links, the site offers new homes, ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedroom properties. Our apartments are all available with the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, and all benefit from sustainable building practices. Features include solar panels and underfloor heating, meaning buyers not only benefit from a more affordable way to buy a home but cost-effective energy bills too.
