A continuous policy of improvement

Perfection is impossible, instead we strive for excellence. Our Creative Director, Caroline, visits each of our developments regularly to scrutinise our homes and that she does… with a fine tooth comb.

Her latest visit to Spring Mills in the village of Fence in Lancashire meant a few changes had to be made. The first of them, was the Hutton home. A customer who couldn’t buy this home in the end (it’s still available!) suggested we open up the hallway, which we have done. Caroline instantly agreed in the improvement. The next time we build a home like this we’ll be taking these comments on board. The changes have meant we’ve got a larger living area and a much more free flowing space. You can view the latest layout here. Finally, we had to come up with a solution to a stepped area in the garden. We’re currently designing a bespoke metal railing that will tie in with the design of the development.

Her third suggestion was tiling in the cloakroom in the Pinnacle. It’s always been our way to include more in our specifications. We won’t name names but we once heard of a national developer that didn’t include downlights in the kitchen or bathrooms in a house valued at £600,000. We include downlights in all of our kitchens and bathrooms at Spring Mills in Fence across ALL of our homes. Quality of finish is of upmost importance to us and we hope that it shows. In light of this, all Pinnacle homes will now have half tiling to sanitary ware walls.

Of course every site visit doesn’t just highlight what doesn’t quite work, it proves what does. Spring Mills is looking beautiful and is, as we have heard from our homeowners, a great place to live. We’re extremely proud of the homes that we build and welcome you to come and see the Skipton Properties difference.

Would you like to look around? Spring Mills is open Thursday – Monday 11am – 5pm. We look forward to showing you our homes.
