A legacy in bricks and mortar
We have a long history of building in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Our late founder was born in Lancashire, and spent most of his life in Skipton in North Yorkshire; we build in these areas as they hold special significance to us. To date we have built almost 4000 homes in the region. The timeline of developments below should give you a taste of the communities we have built and the quality of build we have become known for.
St. Stephen’s Place
A challenging development as it included the renovation of several grade II listed buildings. At St Stephen’s Place we created two townhouses, four apartments and a cottage from the original buildings and built three new homes.
Another challenging development, not only because Sabden Brook split the site in two, but because it was a brownfield, derelict mill. We developed a total of 30 homes, including two unique one-of-a-kind buildings that were inspired by the old mill buildings. Ecology was a significant consideration at Victoria Fold and we re-purposed the mill chimney, splitting it into two more manageable parts creating new homes for the bats that once occupied the old mill.
The Old School House
A development of 11 apartments created within an old school in the heart of Barnoldswick in Lancashire. This development made it to the finals of the LABC’s People and Place Awards.
A development of 28 homes in the picturesque village of Harden, bordering the St Ives Estate. Built with natural stone and a luxurious specification, it won ‘Best New Development’ at the LABC Awards in 2021.
One of our larger developments with a modern aesthetic. Featuring 70 natural stone homes with natural slate rooves. In 2021, 23 apartments were also created within the original grade II listed, Bridge House Mill.
Kings Mill Residences
A development of only 8 luxurious stone-built homes. We took inspiration from traditional barns when designing the development, creating unique homes with a contemporary feel, including quirky chimneys and a luxury specification.
Another winning development at the LABC awards. We created 22 new homes across two courtyards. Several houses were unique to the development, such as the Coach and Carriage Houses that came with their own stables and pasture land.
A development of 40 natural stone homes in the delightful village of Glusburn.
A development designed with the commuter in mind and located a short walk from Shipley Train Station. We built 86 homes and apartments at an affordable price point for those wanting to get on the ladder.
29 new homes and apartments were created in the heart of Silsden.
22 homes in the village of Fence in Lancashire.
We built 103 homes at Elsey Croft. It is one of the largest developments in our history. The development is situated on the edge of Skipton overlooking farmland. Interesting fact: the dry stone wall we built at this development took a total of 9 months to build!
A small development of only three homes, nestled at the side of one of our larger, previously completed developments. All featuring four bedrooms and beautiful landscaped gardens with views of Cowling Pinnacle.
A development of 37 natural stone homes in the charming town of Settle with views towards the Yorkshire Three Peaks. Dry stone walls featured heavily at this development to echo the open spaces that surround it.
A development of just three, four bedroom homes.
A development of 22 homes built for growing families in the new Bolton Woods. A departure from our usual style, but in keeping with the plans for the wider area.
54 new homes created for growing families in Keighley.
A development of 29 homes in the historic village of Haworth.
