Village high street being transformed with classy five-home development

A CGO of Highfield Croft

A new development of five family homes – comprising of three detached and two semi-detached houses, is taking shape in the village of Thormanby, equidistant from the market towns of Easingwold and Thirsk.

Being developed by Travis Developments, Highfield Croft, which has superb far-reaching views of the Howardian Hills and The White Horse, is being brought to market by Linley & Simpson’s specialist Land and New Homes department, which launched in 2015 with just a single member of staff and six properties.

Six year later, it now employs a growing team of six and has seen its new home sales portfolio increase to over 500, with more than three times that number in the pipeline.

It was crowned Best Land and New Homes team in the UK in the most recent residential property industry’s “Oscars”, drawing judges’ praise for the raft of initiatives it has designed to support Yorkshire housebuilders in launching their developments to market.

Whilst the semi-detached The Smithy, which has already been sold off-plan, and The Granary have three bedrooms, their detached counterparts, The Nook, The Mill House and The Pump House, boast four.

Each home will have a sumptuous Magnet kitchen in its contemporary shaker style range, that will fit seamlessly into the open plan kitchen living space, which features ample natural light and high specification throughout. And, as you would expect from a family home, all have good-sized gardens.

Prices for Highfield Croft start at £350,000, and all five have the added advantage of a detached garage, and for those who are environmentally conscious, they are heated by ground source heat pumps.

David Waddington, Linley & Simpson Land and New Homes Director, said: “Highfield Croft is a superb, select development, located in the heart of the village of Thormanby.

“With views of the Howardian Hill and the iconic White Horse, on Sutton Bank, all the houses benefit from quality fixtures and sit beautifully with the neighbouring properties.

“In addition to bringing five carefully designed, quality family homes, Highfield Croft is transforming an eyesore and enhancing the area, a move welcomed by villagers.

“Thormanby is a lovely village. It’s mentioned in the Domesday Book, and for those looking for the tranquillity of rural life, yet within an easy commute of two bustling market towns, this is the place to be.”
