Developers have teed up the start of a £2.5m project that will see three luxury family homes brought to life on the edge of a historic Yorkshire golf course.
As part of the development overlooking Ripon City Golf Club – which famously counted record-breaking Open winner Harry Vardon among its past professionals – a year’s green fees are included in the asking price.
The trio of individually-designed homes – known as Green Meadows, Fairway, and The Poplars – are being built on Palace Road on the edge of the city by North Yorkshire-based OJ Developments.
Launched to market through the Ripon office of Linley & Simpson, prices for the four double-bedroomed detached houses range between £800,000 and £835,000.
“Ripon is one of Yorkshire’s most up-and-coming house-buying locations,” said David Waddington, director of New Homes at Linley & Simpson.
“This bespoke collection of family homes is set in one of Ripon’s most prestigious addresses and is hallmarked by cutting-edge architecture and interior design.
“All three of these substantial properties have been designed for family needs, each boasting a large living/kitchen to create a real hub of the home. Every bedroom benefits from its own en-suite facilities.”
He added: “The homes are also designed to make the very most of natural light.
“They enjoy the morning sun to the rear and, with a westerly aspect to the front, the raised patio area the properties make the most of the sun.”
For golf enthusiasts, their location could not be better. They are just a short shot away from Ripon City Golf Club, whose current rural location at the back of Palace Road dates back to 1908.
The club has embarked on a series of upgrades since its centenary year in 2008, when it invited renowned golf course architect Howard Swann to carry out a full review.
With a new clubhouse balcony opening last summer as part of these changes, the club is widely regarded as one of the most-improved in Yorkshire.
All three of the properties are available to reserve now off-plan, with a completion date scheduled for winter 2019.
