  • Stamp Duty Paid this weekend in Skipton

    Stamp Duty paid on reservations this weekend

    We’d like to get you moved in for Christmas so you can host the family in your lovely new home.

    To help out we are offering to pay your stamp duty.

    Where is it available?

    You’ll be able to take advantage of this on the following homes:

    The Hughes: a four bedroom home in Skipton, North Yorkshire

    Stamp Duty Paid: £10,497

    The Eames: a four bedroom home in Skipton, North Yorkshire

    Stamp Duty Paid: £14,497

    The details…

    Stamp Duty figures are correct for first time buyers or those of you selling your home to move. Stamp duty calculations will be higher for those of you buying as a second home or buy to let (we will not be responsible for increased stamp duty payments in these circumstances)


    We ask that you reserve this weekend so you can move in before Christmas. Lastly, we inform you that the offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer such as part exchange.

    Offers like these only come once a year…. what are you waiting for!

  • This weekend at Elsey Croft… a Sunday Roast!

    Sunday Roast

    With only a few weeks left of the Summer season we wanted to treat all of our new home owners that reserve this weekend to a Sunday Roast at the Box Tree in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

    As some of you or all of you may know (hopefully!) we are a family company. Family meals are very important to us which is why we’d like to bring you all together for a hearty Sunday Roast in beautiful surroundings.

    The Box Tree is a michelin starred restaurant in Ilkley and is one of our favourites. We offered our new homeowners a Valentines night for two and they all loved the experience. It was, to quote one of our homeowners, ‘a wonderful way to celebrate their new home’

    We have just four homes at Elsey Croft

    The Edwin
    A wonderful three bedroom home on the south west corner of the development. We love this home for its large master bedroom with en-suite

    The Hughes
    A large four bedroom home overlooking the green fields that surround Elsey Croft. A design that has been lovingly created by our Creative Director, Caroline, with the kitchen at the heart of the home

    The Brocklehurst
    An even bigger four bedroom home in the centre of the development with a beautiful landscaped garden and plenty of space

    The Eames
    The largest home on the development with a detached double garage. Caroline is styling this home and has chosen a grey oak effect Karndean flooring which will complement the shaker kitchen.

    Talk to our Sales Advisors, Pam and Melanie, to find out more or pop along to the development.

  • The benefits of underfloor heating

    We have been installing underfloor heating for quite a few years now. We like it for many reasons:

    • Underfloor heating gives our customers design freedom. It’s harder than you may think to plan for radiators in the living area of a home. Furniture placement is very much a personal choice and we might end up putting a radiator in a place that is not right for you (however if caught early enough we can often move them on request). Underfloor heating allows total design freedom so the space can be adapted to suit your needs without restriction.
    • Energy experts recommend underfloor heating as it is efficient. It operates at a lower overall temperature than your traditional radiator and therefore requires a lower temperature rise from the boiler. A lower temperature is required due to even coverage throughout the floor.
    • Compared to traditional radiators, it is virtually silent.
    • Finally, evenly spread heating (radiant heat) means toasty toes when walking on tiled or wood floors!

    Find underfloor heating in the main living floor on all our homes at Kearns Village, Cowpe and in our larger homes at Elsey Croft, Skipton.

  • The Hughes

    The Hughes KitchenOpen plan living at Elsey Croft, Skipton

    We love an open plan home. We think it brings the family together.

    The Hughes home, a four bedroom home at Elsey Croft, Skipton, doesn’t disappoint. It was designed with this in mind.

    It features a beautiful island kitchen which can be styled just the way you want it – choose from a large range of kitchen doors and granite or quartz to create a look that’s you.

    We have three Hughes homes remaining at Elsey Croft, Skipton, but the next to be built will be plot 58, which is priced at £409,950.

    So if you’re looking for a new home in Skipton with a living space that brings the family together the Hughes could be for you.

  • Another day, another site visit to Elsey Croft in Skipton

    Large enough to cope, but small enough to care

    At Elsey Croft we have filled our homes with little extras you probably won’t find in other new build homes (our Director is often told off by our Buying department for adding more to the specification!). In our larger homes we’ve gone even further. These photos were taken in the Thompson. They show the oak and glass staircases you will find in the Thompson, Eames and Brocklehurst and the fire we feature in most of our larger homes. We particularly love the feature door in the Thompson pictured here.

    Please remember these are photos taken on an iPhone so aren’t the best but we hope they show you level of quality a Skipton Properties home provides.

    Our Director was on site for three hours with the architect this morning deliberating over designs and evaluating where we can make our homes even better. We’re a company large enough to cope, but small enough to care. We hope that shows…

  • Part Exchange at Elsey Croft

    Skipton Properties InfographicsIcons2We are now offering Part Exchange on select homes in Skipton

    Are you wanting to move into a larger home in Skipton? Would you prefer to move without a chain?

    We have two homes available for part exchange at Elsey Croft – The Hughes (Plot 63) and The Thompson (Plot 66).

    Both are four bedroom homes with garages. They are situated on the north eastern corner of our development with panoramic views of the surrounding farmland with south facing, landscaped gardens. They both feature some of the highlights from our upgraded luxury specification, including underfloor heating, cast iron stoves, half tiled bathrooms and more.

    The basic requirements for a part exchange 

    Your home must be 10-15 miles from your future home at Elsey Croft (this is so we can monitor the sale effectively). It must have a value that is at least 30% less than our home.

    The benefits?

    No estate agency fees to pay. No chain. A guaranteed buyer. Most importantly it’s an easy move as you are able to stay in your home until yours is ready…….

    Talk to us

    Call or email our Sales Advisors today so they can talk you through our Part Exchange process and start valuing your home!

  • Friends of Aireville Park

    aireville1December’s Community Grant….
    We are sure many of you use Aireville Park to walk your dog, for a stroll after you’ve taken your children swimming or after a session in the gym, for a spot of sunbathing (when we do have good weather) or simply as a thoroughfare to get to the train station.
    Friends of Aireville Park aim to conserve and enhance the park and we want to help them do that…. so this month our grant goes to them to help plan the children’s play area and to allow them to buy two more benches.
    Fiona Protheroe Chair of Friends of Aireville Park has said “ We are delighted to received funding from the Skipton Properties Community Grant scheme.  The friends group have a huge task ahead to raise funding for a new children play area in Aireville Park. The support from Skipton Properties is very much appreciated.   Anyone interested in being more involved in the friends group, to help improve the park, can contact Friends of Aireville Park on [email protected] or join our facebook group”
    We’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their efforts in helping to make Skipton the great place it is to live.
  • The Hughes at Elsey Croft

    Elsey Croft_Hughes_003A modern take on a traditional four bedroom home (an article by Caroline, Director)

    I was at Elsey Croft, Skipton yesterday looking through The Hughes, Plot 64, ensuring its progress for its future homeowner! I was delighted to see how the space worked in this house. Admittedly I get quite excited about many of our homes, but I feel this one is something new for us.

    Walk in and your first impression is that of a very large kitchen area, with a beautiful island with space for your hob and to prep all your meals too. Further along from that is the garden room which has so many windows in it you could almost call it an orangery!

    This home has been designed with the family at the heart of it. As a family business and knowing how we spend our time, we wanted to design a home where meal times, where the family all sit together for a daily catch up, were made the main event. The house also lends itself to al fresco dining in the summer without having to move all your food outside. Open up the velux’s, open up the patio doors and turn on the bbq. Bring the outdoors indoors without having to worry about what the weather might do.



    On the first floor there are two great sized doubles, both with space for wardrobes, and a house bathroom. There’s also a en-suite room on this floor too.
    Go up to the top and you’ll find the master suite which benefits from high ceilings and beautiful views out to the farmland in front. The depth of the fitted wardrobes in this room also means you can use the back of the wardrobe as storage – suitcases, boxes, whatever you like!

    Anything else?

    The Hughes is one of our larger four bedroom homes which means it has a few included extras in the specification.

    • A granite or quartz worktop in the kitchen – because the island wouldn’t be done justice with any joins in it!
    • Underfloor heating to the ground floor
    • A fireplace for those cosy winter nights
    • South facing landscaped
    • High ceilings
    • Larger skirtings
    • Space for a laundry area in the garage
    • A full fridge and a full freezer
    • An upgraded Hansgrohe Rain Shower to the en-suite bathroom
    • Half tiling to all bathrooms
    • Downlights to kitchen and garden room – so you don’t need to worry if the pendant lines up with the dining table!

    For further information on the Hughes, including the full specification, please click here.

    We have just one available to reserve at the moment. Priced at £399,950 with a south facing garden.

    This area of the development isn’t viewable just yet – it’s a little unsafe for our customers around that part of the development – but if you would like to reserve off plan, please call 01756 630517 or email our Sales Advisors, Pam & Melanie, with your enquiry.

  • St Stephen’s School – Community Grant

    St Stephen’s school in Skipton receives our first grant

    We received many applications from wonderful causes across the Skipton area for our Community Grants scheme – it was very hard to choose…. but we had to make a decision.

    For the month of October we chose to support St Stephens School because we strongly believe in furthering education in the area. Our children after all are our future. St Stephens is a school that needs local donations in order to survive and we wanted to help. The grant will be used to buy books to aid in the teaching of phonics. Phonics is an important teaching method; it helps children recognise the sounds of letters in order for them to understand how words are spelled.

    Future grants

    Don’t worry, if you have applied, your application will roll into the next month when we’ll be considering all applications again. If you haven’t and would like to, please email us at [email protected] to let us know a little about your cause and how the money would be spent. There is a £1,000 up for grabs every month for the next 11 months!

    We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your efforts in making Skipton a great place to live.
