The New Homes division of Dacre, Son & Hartley has seen further recognition of its effectiveness, following the appointment of the firm’s Settle office to market the last two units within an exclusive development on the site of a former primary school in Lower Bentham.

Only two of the five newly built stand-out detached properties on Old School Close in Lower Bentham remain for sale and Dacres is marketing them for £370,000 and £375,000. 

Patrick McCutcheon FNAEA, Head of Residential at Dacre, Son & Hartley, said: “Tom Galloway and his Settle team have performed exceptionally well over the last few years, with particular success within the new homes sector. This is mirrored across our network of 20 offices, with Dacres being seen as the ‘go to firm’ for new homes within our operational area. We also sell development land, ranging from single plots and conversions to multi-million-pound development sites, and our experience is recognised by new homes developers and consumers alike.” 

Tom Galloway added: “It’s yet another new homes instruction for the team following our successful marketing of 16 new homes at Dalesview in Clapham village. The Old School Close properties are ideal for anyone wanting to live close to the popular market town of Bentham in a sought after residential location. Both homes have generous gardens, garages and parking.”

5 Old School House and 3 Old School House have been developed by Autumn Park Developments and benefit from the highest standard of specification throughout. Tom added: “Everything you would want in a modern home is included, with a fabulous, modern open plan dining kitchen with fully integrated NEFF appliances and under floor heating, a handy utility room, downstairs WC and separate lounge. Upstairs, the homes have four bedrooms, a house bathroom and en-suite in the master bedroom. The appeal of such a high-end specification is matched equally by the attractive location of the properties, which both come with a 10-year new homes guarantee.”  

Old School Close is in a convenient location within easy reach of plenty of local amenities. Bentham sits between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Trough of Bowland. Tom added: “It’s a lovely rural area close to the border of North Yorkshire and Lancashire and there are shops, a bank, Post Office, pubs, bars and grocery stores, together with a Primary School, 18-hole golf course and Doctors Surgery all nearby. 

“Commuter links are also good with a railway station on the Leeds - Carnforth line, and a bus service to Lancaster and Ingleton. The A65 is approximately four miles away and junction 34 of the M6 only 14 miles away. The other three properties on the development have sold to a mix of buyers including a family, retirees and a professional with local family connections and we are expecting plenty of interest in these last two attractive homes.”
