All but one of the homes available at the development off Castle Fields have already been sold to buyers eager to move in. The last remaining plot, featuring a five-bedroom detached house, is available through the Wetherby office of Linley & Simpson for £590,000.

Park Lane Homes tasted success at the awards in 2013 when two bespoke properties also in a village location North of Leeds won over the judges to achieve regional and national winner of the small development of the year. Now it hopes to repeat the achievement with Castle Fields.

James Clink, Land and Development Manager of Park Lane Homes, said: “Castle Fields is a haven of seclusion, serenity and space. It features a collection of beautifully crafted new 4 and 5 bedroom homes, each styled and built in harmony with their scenic rural surroundings.”

“We are thrilled that the development is flying the flag for home-grown Yorkshire skills and expertise at these national awards which act as a showcase for those select new homes which go over and above what is expected.”

“John's eye for detail and passion for delivering the highest quality specification has been pivotal in the success of the scheme, and it is fitting that he is among the finalists for the coveted title of best site manager.”
