Homebuyers looking for a luxurious new home within walking distance of Skipton town centre will have the opportunity to view the show house and reserve plots at a stunning new development being built by a highly respected local developer, during an open day on Saturday 22nd September.

The development, known as ‘Higher Raikes’, is located off the top of Raikes Road between the iconic Skipton Castle and the A65.  It will consist of a diverse selection of individually designed four and five bedroom detached houses together with a selection of smaller semi-detached homes.

The scheme is being built by R.N Wooler and Co. Ltd on land that previously formed part of the Tarn Moor Estate.  Just two, five-bedroom detached homes are still available for sale from the first phase of the development, which will be ready to move into later this month.  The second phase has just been released for sale prior to the upcoming open day and will include a superb selection of spacious four bedroom detached houses that are likely to be complete for early spring 2019.  A select few affordable homes are also available within the development.

Julia Green, who heads the Skipton office, which is the joint marketing agent on the development, said: “There is a real shortage of high quality new homes being built in and around Skipton and this impressive development goes a long way to satisfying that pent up demand. The scheme is already proving extremely popular and we’d urge anyone interested to register with us now. 
“The site is just minutes away from Skipton town centre, as well as Ermysted's Grammar School and Skipton Girls’ High School, whilst the elevated position means lots of the homes will enjoy far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. It is also positioned literally at the gateway to the Dales.”
Gareth Wooler from R.N Wooler and Co, said: “Our ambition at Higher Raikes is to create an exceptional development in a quiet, rural area but still very close to all Skipton’s facilities and amenities.  All the homes will be finished to a very high standard, with the latest kitchens and integrated appliances, luxury bathrooms, good sized gardens, driveways and lots also have double garages as well as one or two en-suite bedrooms. 

“We know from our previous experience building homes locally that there’s plenty of demand in Skipton for high quality family homes and this development is already proving popular with local homebuyers, as well as those coming into Skipton from outside the area.” 
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.  The company have recently completed several other residential projects nearby, in Settle and Bradley, that have been extremely popular and successful.

The open day is being held on Saturday 22nd September 2018 from 10am to 3pm.  After this the show home is open to view by appointment with the selling agents.
Prices for homes being marketed in the first and second phases of the development start from £375,000.  For further information or to register interest, contact the Skipton team on 01756 701010, or joint agent Harrison Boothman.
