All roads lead to Yorkshire new homes development that unearthed Roman artefacts

Long Barn

A new housing development In North Yorkshire, where historic artefacts were uncovered during its construction, has proved a sales success story.

Four of the five family homes at Vineries Farmstead, off Roecliffe Lane in Boroughbridge, have already been sold – with the final one being showcased at an open day this Saturday (July 16) between 10am and 2pm.

Named Long Barn, and for sale at £765,000, the four-bedroom detached home has been brought to life on a site steeped in history.

During construction, Leeds developers Brigantia Homes discovered finds from the late Iron Age and Roman periods to the old glasshouses used to cultivate vines during the mid-20th Century.

In honour, one of the neighbouring properties is named Kiln House, after remains of a Roman kiln were discovered during an archaeological dig.

The development is being marketed by Linley & Simpson’s specialist Land and New Homes team, based in Harrogate.

Its Director, David Waddington, said: “Vineries Farmstead is a lovely small-scale development, and the open day gives homebuyers an opportunity to view this ‘last chance to buy’ property.

“The layout and design of the development recreates an old farmstead setting of brick and oak clad barns, oak framed outbuildings and an old farmhouse. Natural materials are used, with external walls in carefully selected brick and roof coverings in natural clay pantiles or slates.

Long Barn has been beautifully designed and its interior very carefully thought-out, with high-end fixtures and fittings. Brigantia Homes, is well known for the quality of the homes they build – and that’s been reflected in the interest that’s been generated in the development to date.”

“Boroughbridge is a very popular market town, helped by its superb commuting connections to the A1 and, A19, with Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and York all on its doorstep.”
