Castelford’s most famous son has been commemorated in a £3m development of new homes in the town.
In honour of the renowned sculptor and artist Henry Moore, the collection of 14 detached and semi-detachedproperties at Healdfield Court, Healdfield Road, have been named Moore Park.
The link with the arts has been further strengthened with each different house design taking its name from galleries which have exhibited Moore’s work – such as The Tate and The Hepworth.
Moore Park features a choice of three and four bedroom properties in a range of different designs to suit buyers’ lifestyles and budgets. Prices range from £205,000 to £250,000 and come with a 10-year building warranty for ultimate peace of mind.
They are also available to purchase with support from the Government’s Help To Buy scheme, which makes it easier for first-time buyers to gain their initial step on the property ladder. Subject to terms, conditions and status a 5 per cent deposit may be all that is required.
The new-build homes have been brought to life by Yorkshire-based developers, Frontline Estates, and are being marketed through the Wakefield office of estate agents, Linley & Simpson.
Its valuation manager, Matt Elston, said: “This development has breathed further new life into this part of the town and will help satisfy the current demand for brand new homes in Castleford.
“We are delighted that the collection has been named in honour of Henry Moore, especially as next month the town will be marking the 30th anniversary of the death of arguably its most famous sons.
“All the homes on Moore Park are traditional andwelcoming in their design, and create particular appealfor young and growing families – both the Castleford Academy and local primary schools are within walking distance.
“Nestling on the edge of the town centre, all the amenities and transport links needed for daily life are on the doorstep.”
Each home provides accommodation over three levels. The ground floor offers an ideal dining room/kitchen area with bi-folding doors onto a rear garden. Also at ground floor level is the integral garage and a downstairs WC.
Upstairs to the first floor, each property boasts a large L-shaped living room plus a well-proportioned master bedroom with en-suite facilities.
The second floor has two double bedrooms and the family bathroom, while the larger properties also have a fourth bedroom/study.
