YORKSHIRE COUNTRY PROPERTIES APPOINT SAVILLS TO MARKET PRESTIGIOUS YORKSHIRE DEVELOPMENTS
A flourishing Yorkshire-based residential developer has appointed award-winning national property consultancy Savills to market its three developments in West Yorkshire. Yorkshire Country Properties is currently on site with attractive and highly regarded developments at Shepley, Skelmanthorpe and Denby Dale.
Paul Brown, managing director of Yorkshire Country Properties, commented: “We are excited to be in partnership with Savills on these developments. The brand synergy is obvious – we build high quality, tailored homes for our customers, in beautiful locations, that support individual customer needs.
“With three developments ongoing, and more in planning stages, we have a strong pipeline for which we welcome Savills’ expertise and support in realising.”
Developed by Yorkshire Country Properties, the mix of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes across sites in Denby Dale, Skelmanthorpe and Shepley are attracting a range of buyers, with starter homes among the 147 properties to be built in total – 46 of which have already been sold or reserved.
Anne Haggas, head of Yorkshire residential development sales at Savills in Leeds, revealed: “There has already been a surge of early interest in the homes on all three sites, predominantly because of their attractive appearance, competitive pricing, high-quality design, top interior specification and excellent locations. The combination is irresistible and is fuelling the demand we are currently seeing in these schemes.”
The first phase of the Knowle Grange scheme in Shepley comprises 31 new homes, including six one-bedroom starter cottages, all of which have been sold. Located on Abbey Road, the exterior of each property is made from natural tumbled Yorkshire stone. The second phase of the development, which will see a further 52 high-quality homes built, is expected to complete in the summer of 2025.
Additional developments at The Willows, Denby Dale and Whistle Bell Court, Skelmanthorpe will both offer a range of one-to-five-bedroom properties and are expected to complete between summer and autumn of next year. Already a number of properties on both sites have been reserved.
Anne Haggas added: “Yorkshire Country Properties have a proven track record of producing homes of character that meet the demands of modern living and we are delighted to have been appointed to market The Willows, Knowle Grange and Whistle Bell Court. The property market throughout Yorkshire has been performing particularly well this year, in spite of the challenges that people have faced and, added to the prime village locations of each of these sites, we anticipate continued strong demand across the region and wider UK.”
