Wharfedale Homes has now begun building a new community of 60 new-build houses in Helmsley, North Yorkshire, at its prestigious Swanland Road site.
New-builds Proving Popular
The collection of high-quality stone new-build houses will be completed in three phases. Interest in the new homes in Helmsley is already proving high ahead of the official launch of the development, with a number of the 14 properties in the first phase already reserved off plan.
New Homes Planning
Wharfedale Homes Director Chris Patmore said: “We have spent nearly ten years working through the planning system to be able to bring this site forward. We have worked closely with the local community, the Helmsley Estate, National Park Planning Officers and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Committee to create a superb development which is worthy of its very special location.”
Phases two and three of the development will include six two-bedroom properties for sale at a discounted price to local people will be made available in the second half of 2018. There will also be one and two bedroom properties available to rent to the local community.
Mr Patmore said: "As part of our work it is important to us that our developments benefit the local community."
The town’s facilities have already benefitted with a contribution of £44.000 being made to improvement works to the Helmsley Recreation Ground from the company’s previous development at Linkfoot Lane. For 2017 Wharfedale Homes has partnered with Helmsley In Business to fund printing and distribution of 75,000 brochures to attract visitors to the North Yorkshire area.
Carolyn Frank, chair of Helmsley in Business and owner of Libby Butler Jewellers, said: "It's great to see work starting on the new development and to hear that interest has been so high. We're very lucky to live and work in such a wonderful community, and it will be great to welcome new people to it. But in addition, it's good to know that there will also be properties available for local people to either rent or buy. Helmsley in Business is already working closely with Wharfedale Homes to help promote the area, and to make sure that new residents feel welcomed and informed about the town, when the first homes are completed."
Tradition meets modern new-builds
Mr Patmore said: “As a company we specialise in building homes to blend sympathetically with their surroundings. We have achieved that with our first development of twenty homes at Linkfoot Lane and plan to do the same at Swanland Park.
Although traditional on the outside, inside the new Swanland Park new-build homes will offer modern, open-plan living. Bi-folding doors will open onto quiet gardens to harmonises indoor and outdoor spaces.
