Scunthorpe Houses for Sale & Rent - Discover the Difference with Hunters

Scunthorpe is a large, industrial town based in North Lincolnshire. Scunthorpe is primarily known for the steel works – which has been the majority employer in Scunthorpe over the years.  Scunthorpe encompasses the original areas which include; Crosby, Brumby, Froddingham and Ashby – and also has extended dramatically over the years to include Bottesford, Yaddlethorpe, Timberlands and the newer, and still ongoing, Lakeside developments. Other developments in the area are the Skippendale estate and Normanby Estate – which offer further housing for the growing population of Scunthorpe. 
Centrally located between Ashby and Scunthorpe town is the aptly named ‘Central Park’, which is a large recreational area, with play and splash park and football field, encompassed by woodland. Central Park also houses The Pods leisure centre, which offers a large pool and great gym facilities.  To the north of the town, near the village of Burton upon Stather, is Normanby Park. This large, council ran home is open throughout the year to visitors offering substantial walks, a park, a farming museum and a splash park for its guests. 
The Baths Hall, in the town centre – which has been recently refurbished – is host to a number of events and concerts throughout the calendar year. From pop and rock to sci-fi events and pantomimes – this hall offers something for everyone’s tastes.  On the outskirts of town, in the Broughton area, there is a biannual concert ‘Party in the Pines’, which is an outdoor music festival located within the woods – headlined by The Enemy at the last event! 
Scunthorpe represents an ideal area to live in / invest in due to several key facts. It is central to larger towns / cities – hence offering an easy commute, for lower cost housing. Easy access from either the West or East of the town to the motorway means that commutes to places, ie Doncaster, Leeds, Hull, Grimsby, Lincoln, can be made with relative ease. House prices within Scunthorpe are considerably less than in these commutable areas, hence offer more house for your money and ultimately more affordable monthly payments. Due to the interest from people wanting to move within the area, as well as people moving from other areas – this represents an ideal investment for the future as although house prices are currently low in comparison to similar towns, the chances are that it will catch up due to demand – giving you a greater return / more rental options.
