Family-owned property development business, Eagerlux, has invested in another of Skipton’s historic landmarks, High Street House.
The building, which has been an integral part of Skipton since Victorian times, is situated on the town’s award-winning High Street. It consists of five retail units with attractively refurbished offices on the first and second floor.
Eagerlux owns a portfolio of properties across the town including Skipton’s medieval High Corn Mill which it bought in 1991. Since then the company has made over £2 million worth of investments and improvements. It also owns properties in Victoria Square and across the wider West Yorkshire area.
Eagerlux MD Andrew Mear said: “Skipton is a fantastic town with so much character and it’s such a friendly place. I love that so many of its original features are still intact – that’s a large part of what makes Skipton such a great place. I believe in the town and that it will continue to be one of the Yorkshire Dales’ most loved tourist attractions. With this new investment I hope I can contribute further to the success of the town.”
Skipton’s High Street House was built in the 1860’s and originally used as a jewellery shop. The town was recently named by the Sunday Times as the best place to live in the UK, and won High Street Of The Year in 2008.
