The final phase of luxurious new homes at an exclusive development of just 48 properties in the desirable Raikes Road area of Skipton, is now available for reservation. The development, known as ‘Higher Raikes’, has been built by respected local developer R.N Wooler and Co. Ltd.

Recently recognised for its design and build quality, Higher Raikes was crowned ‘Best Large Development’ at the prestigious Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.  Higher Raikes also won ‘Best Development’ in the LABC Building Excellence Yorkshire awards earlier this year, and has therefore been shortlisted for the LABC Grand Finals in London next month. 

Only nine detached homes are still remaining for sale – ranging in price from £499,950 to £565,000 – all have four bedrooms and a garage. Working together in collaboration on behalf of the developer are Joint Selling Agents - Dacre, Son & Hartley and Harrison Boothman.  Mark Kane, who heads up Dacre, Son & Hartley in Skipton, said: “Located off the top of Raikes Road between the iconic Skipton Castle and the A65, it’s a highly sought after address. Within walking distance of Skipton town centre and built on land that previously formed part of the Tarn Moor Estate, Higher Raikes has plenty of appeal. 

“All the remaining homes have one or two en-suites, spacious bedrooms, large open plan dining kitchens with the very latest fittings and appliances, cosy snugs and large living rooms. With plenty of parking, garages and attractive gardens, the properties have really hit the mark with buyers. 

“The previous phases all sold quickly to a mix of buyers, with retired people, downsizers and both younger and older couples, as well as lots of families, all attracted by the location and build quality. It’s a great mix of people, the majority of whom are from North Yorkshire, but some have moved here from further afield.

“Every buyer has been impressed with the size of the homes and the absolute commitment to quality and finish by R. N Wooler. The developer has not skimped on anything – and it shows. From the designer kitchens and beautiful bathrooms to the attractive stone and dark grey slate used, everything has been properly thought through – with a commitment to first class design and build.” 

Higher Raikes is just minutes away from Skipton town centre, as well as Ermysted's Grammar School and Skipton Girls’ High School. Its elevated position means lots of the homes enjoy far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Mark added: “Positioned right at the gateway to the Dales it’s an exceptional development in a quiet, rural area but still very close to all Skipton’s facilities and amenities.  Demand for these types of homes never wains and this last phase of homes is bound to sell quickly.” 

Keighley based R.N Wooler and Co was founded in 1985 and has an enviable reputation working on a wide range of projects throughout Craven and the wider region, with exciting new projects coming soon in Bradley, Gargrave and Embsay. 

The Show Home is now available to view by appointment. For further information or to register interest, contact the Skipton office on 01756 701010, or joint agent Harrison Boothman 01756 799993,
