‘I founded Skipton Properties in 1986. Unimpressed with the quality of house building at the time, I set out to do better. Over the years I assembled a team of highly skilled craftsmen, each of whom I value hugely and who are all proud of the level of quality we’ve become known for.’

Sarah Barraclough

Managing Director

‘I joined our Sales Team over ten years ago, before graduating to the role of Operations Director and moving into the position of Managing Director in early 2019. I lead on the overall strategy for the business and oversee the construction of our homes from start to finish, with the help of our highly skilled team of engineers, builders, surveyors and buyers, ensuring the highest possible standards of workmanship throughout. My guiding principle is that every home we build is done so as if it were going to be my own.’

Caroline van Niekerk (nee Verity)

Sales, Marketing and Design Director

‘I joined the business almost nine years ago. having spent the earlier part of my career with M&C Saatchi. As a Director with responsibility for leading Sales, Marketing and Design, I work closely with our team of architects, personally selecting everything from the windows and doors to the tap in your kitchen, ensuring each home we build is not only well built but has a distinct style. Along with my father and sister, I strive to ensure our customers have a great experience when buying their new home.’

Luke Davis

Finance Director

‘I recently joined the family team having spent the last 10 years working in London. As a Chartered Management Accountant with ten years’ experience, its exciting to be able to apply my knowledge here at Skipton Properties. One of our primary values is the quality of our homes. We want to continue to be able to provide homes to this standard whilst keeping our pricing at great value. My key role in the business is enabling us to do this by keeping a keen eye on our costs, whilst working on the cashflow and funding side, and supporting the sales and operational teams.’
