DELIGHTFUL NEW HOMES OPEN TO VIEW IN DARLEY
The much-anticipated ‘Deer Glade’ homes are the latest project from the highly regarded development team of Yorplace and Square Feet. Both put thoughtful design, considered accommodation layouts, high calibre specifications and careful detailing at the heart of their schemes.
Marketed by Dacres, the mix of three, four and five bedroom homes have been designed to embrace and enhance the village setting and local community. Deer Glade has eight superb cottage-style homes of varying sizes, all finished in local sandstone, with natural blue slate roofs. The ninth property is a bespoke five bedroom detached house, with its own gated driveway, which sweeps through the property’s paddock towards a parking area and double garage beyond.
The initial release of three and four bedroom homes range in price from £262,500 to £420,000. All have a 10 year structural warranty provided by Premier Guarantee. Features include high quality double glazed timber windows and bi-fold / patio doors, oak internal doors throughout and roof space that has been designed for useful storage or potential conversion in the future.
Square Feet’s Managing Director, Fraser Thomson, said: “As usual we have paid attention to every last detail of these beautiful new homes. The exclusive hand-painted kitchens have been designed by Clarity Arts and there is luxury large format Italian floor tiling throughout the dining kitchens and bathrooms. Quality has been paramount in the bathrooms and en-suites too, where we will be installing Duravit baths, toilets and basins with Hans Grohe polished chrome fittings. Everything from the generous shower areas to the soft close toilet seats and underfloor heating, has been thoroughly considered to create the ultimate luxury feel.”
Outside the homes have attractive gardens, natural stone pathways and patio areas. The second largest home at Deer Glade, has wrap-around gardens to three sides, incorporating a large south facing terrace. The imposing family house has living space extending to almost 1220 sqft with four double bedrooms, a contemporary house bathroom and a stylish en-suite shower room to the principal bedroom.
Area Director, Paul Baxter, added: “The biggest property within Deer Glade will be an undeniably impressive five bedroom family home that enjoys its own private gated access, expansive gardens and small paddock area. The whole plot is approaching three quarters of an acre and backs onto open fields to the rear, with views across the edge of the village towards lovely countryside beyond from the front. It has a stunning triple aspect living kitchen with bi fold doors to the garden, a large living room, study and useful utility room. There are five first floor double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a dressing area in the principal bedroom. It’s an imposing village home with excellent amenity space, parking and double garage that will appeal to discerning buyers looking for a conveniently located high-end home in the heart of North Yorkshire.”
Toby Morton, from YorPlace, added: “We chose this location for Deer Glade because it enjoys such far reaching aspects towards breath-taking open countryside, whilst to the south there is sweeping open farm land. The village of Darley was also a major factor, as it is set amidst some of Yorkshire’s most prized and unspoilt countryside, and provides a highly desirable living environment that is just a short drive from the spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley, and the market towns of Otley and Skipton. The business centres of West and North Yorkshire and the A1 corridor are all within easy travelling distance, so it’s ideal for commuters too.”
Construction work is currently ongoing, with the properties set to complete by early summer. Matthew Stamford, from joint agents Verity Frearson, observed: “You can already get a good idea of the layout and quality of materials being used. Deer Glade’s location on the edge of Darley – which retains a traditional atmosphere and a strong sense of community – is also highly attractive. Darley combines with the neighbouring villages of Dacre and Summerbridge to offer local shopping, primary schooling and traditional village pubs, as well as churches and sports clubs. Its location, just eight miles from Harrogate via the nearby A59 really adds to the appeal of Deer Glade and we expect plenty of interest from buyers.”
