One of Redrow’s most popular Yorkshire developments could be all wrapped up by Christmas.

Manor Fields launched in May 2014 on a 15-acre site in Thornhill Road, Steeton, with a pledge by Redrow to protect mature trees, dry stone walls, plus a rare World War II pillbox and two fire posts which had been listed by English Heritage.

A little over three years and around 200 homes later there’s just a handful of apartments and three houses left to sell.

And Redrow is in the process of cleaning the listed structures inside and out, making the buildings safe and installing an information board so they can stand proudly within the development’s public open space.

In the meantime, home owners who want to be part of Manor Fields should hurry – as only four Greendale two-bedroom apartments remain for sale and a trio of two-bedroom Avons.

The apartments are in the final stages of construction so properties can be ready to move into well before Christmas and prices are from only £129,950.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), said: “Manor Fields has been a popular development throughout, thanks to the picture-postcard setting and great connections to places like Keighley, Skipton, Leeds and Bradford.

“The detached family homes are all sold and it’s first time buyers, downsizers and others in the market for a smaller property who can take advantage of the last chance to buy.”

The two-bedroom apartments include an en-suite to the master bedroom and boast an open-plan kitchen/dining and lounge area. Prices range from £129,950 to £137,950 depending on their position within the three-storey building.

For those who prefer a house, a two-bedroom Avon mid-terrace is currently available for £164,950. Each of its two bedrooms has an en-suite shower room and there’s also a ground floor cloakroom, making this the perfect property for friends to share or perhaps for the buy-to-let market.

Patsy adds: “We find these homes also appeal to people looking for a ‘bolt-hole, whether that’s people who work in the area but commute from further afield and want a ‘home from home’ during the week where they can relax and unwind; or those who simply want a regular place to which they can come and enjoy the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Ilkley Moor and other places of interest nearby.”

Manor Fields is less than a mile from Steeton and Silsden railway station, providing regular connections to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton. There’s a selection of local shops and services in Steeton itself and wider amenities in easily reached nearby towns.
