Enquiries 'pour in' for visitor honey pot town's luxury development

The estate agency managing the sale of homes on a new luxury development in Helmsley says interest has been high with enquiries coming in from as far afield as Australia, Dubai and Singapore.

Inside the new properties.

Raven St John’s Black Swan Yard development, under construction on a site to the rear of the renowned Black Swan hotel, will include 17 two and three-bedroom, stone-built, cottage-style houses and apartments set within a gated community and surrounded by landscaped gardens.

Phase One of the scheme, the first five properties, will be built in July, with all homes are due for completion by early next year.

How the development will look.

Prices range from £395,000 for a two-bedroomed 900 sq ft house, to £495,000 for a 1,420 sq ft barn conversion with three en suite bedrooms and parking for two cars.

With the award-winning Black Swan Hotel’s services and facilities available to residents, including ‘room service’ delivery of meals from the hotel restaurant, and preferential rates agreed at the nearby Verbena Spa, the development is aimed squarely at home buyers in search of a rural retreat. Country pursuits such as shooting at neighbouring Duncombe Park, Rievaulx and Ravenswick shoots, as well as fishing, and walking on the North York Moors are all available close by.

Toby Cockcroft, director of Croft Residential, the agency which is marketing the Black Swan Yard properties, said: “Brand new homes, built to such a high spec and located right here in Helmsley, which is a real gem of a Yorkshire market town, very rarely come on to the market.

"Needless to say, these 17 properties are causing something of a stir and we have had enquiries from as far afield as Dubai, Singapore and Australia, as well as from all over the UK. The show home will be ready for viewing in April and several people have already contacted us about making off-plan reservations.”

Crowned best market town high street in Britain in 2015, Helmsley has become a visitor honey pot in recent years, in part due to its location on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, but also as a result of its growing collection of art galleries and independent shops such as delicatessen Hunters of Helmsley, which was last year named Britain’s best small shop.

Toby added: “The economy of Helmsley definitely seems to be on an upward trajectory, not least because the town’s offering to visitors is as near perfect as it’s possible to get. The Black Swan Yard development will provide a further financial boost, attracting buyers who will no doubt want to make the most of all the area has to offer.”
