The development has seen a Victorian building, known as Forster Mill, which forms part of the historic Greenholme Mills complex alongside the River Wharfe, converted into 16 stunning one, two and three bedroom apartments. The homes are being marketed by the new homes division of estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley.
Greenholme Mills operated as a successful textile mill from 1790 until the 1960s, and its location next to the River Wharfe made it one of the largest water-powered mills in England when it was built. However, in recent decades it had fallen into a state of disrepair before JF Development Group unveiled its ambitious plans for the site.
Each apartment has its own balcony with glass balustrading offering views of the surrounding countryside and four of the ground floor apartments enjoy private south facing cottage style gardens with stone flagged features and shrub planting.
The homes have high-quality kitchens and luxurious bathrooms and shower rooms, as well as app controlled electric heating systems with smart controls.
Patrick McCutcheon, Head of Residential at Dacre, Son & Hartley, said: “Burley in Wharfedale will always be a popular village with homebuyers due its rail links to Leeds, Bradford and Ilkley, good schools and excellent local amenities. Imposing period mill buildings in this area are very rare and it’s fantastic to see the renaissance of Forster Mill now completing.
“The attention to detail and standard of workmanship that flows through every aspect of the scheme, from the stunning marble tiled entrance lobby and communal areas to the individual apartments, is exceptional. Crucially, Forster Mill also benefits from being surrounded by magnificent countryside and beautiful riverside walks.”
