HAWORTH’S latest collection of new homes will be throwing open its doors to homebuyers when it stages its first open day later this month.
Acre Mews on Acre Lane is an exclusive development of five Yorkshire stone-built townhouses, nestling a short walk from the famous cobbled streets.
The open day, staged between 10am and 2pm on Saturday May 21, comes as Haworth launches its 200th birthday celebrations for author Charlotte Bronte and is praised in the worlds leading travel magazine for being "postcard cute".
Marketed through the Saltaire office of the residential sales and letting agents, Linley & Simpson, the homes are expected to appeal to younger buyers in particular, as well as those eyeing up this historic location for a second home.
With one of the plots already sold, the remaining four properties are available for between £164,950 and £166,950.
As an added incentive, if plot 4 is sold on the day then the added additional of engineered oak flooring to the kitchen, which is not part of the sales specification, will be included free of charge.
"Built by locally renowned developer Acre Developments, these homes offer a unique contemporary development in a mature setting, located in a sought-after position, close to Haworth's beautiful Central Park," said Stephen Crompton, valuation manager of Linley & Simpsons Saltaire branch.
"They have been designed to offer the ultimate value-for-money for homebuyers and the open day gives people the opportunity to see for themselves the quality construction that runs through these homes both inside and out. Anyone who is interested could move in within a month.
Each has two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, which could double as a home office.
The master bedroom benefits from en-suite facilities, whilst each property also has a spacious family bathroom and downstairs WC.
The homes enjoy a large dining-kitchen, with double doors opening out onto lawned gardens. Each dining-kitchen has contemporary kitchen units and appliances. White goods to the kitchen include a fan assisted oven, hob, extractor hood and an integrated dishwasher. The accommodation also provides a spacious living room, with large windows to the front elevation.
The West-East orientation of the houses ensures excellent natural light.
All the properties have gas-fired central heating with radiators on the ground and first floors, as well as sealed unit double glazing throughout.
Furthermore, every one enjoys a flagged patio area to the rear, two private car parking spaces and the benefit of a ten-year warranty from Premier Guarantee.
Howarth's popularity as a place to live has undergone a further resurgence since its attractions were featured to a worldwide audience when it hosted the Tour de France in 2014. The 200th anniversary celebrations for Charlotte Bronte got underway last month at the same time that the renowned Conde Nast Traveller magazine featured the village and proclaimed it "postcard cute".
And in a triple boost for the district, it was recently announced that the BBC is to film a new costume drama based on the Brontes later this summer with actor Jonathan Pryce, start of Game of Thrones and Wolf Hall, taking one of the lead roles at Patrick Bronte.
