We are delighted to announce that our specialist Land and New Homes team have sold a prime residential site in the picturesque North Yorkshire village for more than £4m.

Holmfirth-based developers Yorkshire Country Properties have acquired the three-hectare parcel of land, and plan to build 50 homes on the greenfield site.

David Waddington, our Director of Land and New Homes, says the deal highlights our strong position in the market: “Given the coveted location, there was no shortage of interest amongst developers in the site, which was sold with full planning permission."

He also lauded his Land and New Homes team, who were crowned Best Land and New Homes department in the UK at the property industry’s “Oscars” in 2019.

“This represents one of our most significant residential land sale deals in our history - and the biggest in 2022 to date.

“Yorkshire housebuyers are turning to new build in ever increasing numbers post-COVID and amid rising energy costs, especially family homes in more rural areas.

“As this trend gathers further pace, so too will the demand among developers for land in prime locations.”

The Church Fenton sale is the latest in a long line of land deals achieved by our dedicated team of seven, who operate across Yorkshire, in the past year.
