Work is due to complete on an exclusive development consisting of just three contemporary new homes close to the centre of Ilkley, that have just been released for sale with ourselves.

The three-storey, four-bedroom homes are finished to an exceptional standard with a modern design style featuring specially coated aluminium sheet finishing to the exterior, luxury bathrooms and kitchens complete with ‘Netis’ moulded worksurfaces and integrated appliances.  The homes also offer extensive glazing throughout, balconies to both the first and second floors, study areas, en-suite facilities and dressing rooms to the master bedrooms, generous gardens, off-street parking and garages with electrically operated doors. 

The development, located on Ashlands Road, is known as Hanson Mews, in recognition of the site previously being home to longstanding local business F. Hanson & Son, which produced and engraved granite, marble and sandstone memorials.  The company was founded in 1951 by Fred Hanson and was subsequently taken over by his son David Hanson, who later joined Westville House School in 2002 as its caretaker, where he worked for a further 14 years.

Patrick McCutcheon, Head of Residential Sales at Dacres says: “Externally these homes really make a statement through their use of natural stone, contemporary aluminium, modern roof lines and feature windows.  As a result, they’re unlike any other new build homes in the area.  Their unique design style is also reflected internally, with each property benefitting from spacious living accommodation and the very latest kitchen and bathroom designs.

“The development is also ideally positioned to take advantage of all Ilkley’s amenities.  It’s just over half a mile to Ilkley Railway Station, a five minute walk to Booths Supermarket and is within easy reach of Ilkley Grammar School, as well as being just around the corner from Ashlands Primary School, which will certainly make the homes popular with families.” 

David Hanson said: “It’s an honour that the development has been named in memory of our family and particularly for my father, who ran a successful business in the area for more than 50 years.    I’m also delighted to see the site brought back to life, with a new and sustainable use, that offers three striking houses complete with everything that a modern family is looking for.” 


The three homes range in price from £419,950 to £442,500 and further information is available by calling our Ilkley office on 01943 600655.  With 21 offices and 164 members of staff across North and West Yorkshire, we are Yorkshire's largest independent estate agent.
