A Successful Start for Beech Farm
New homes proving popular
More than 250 individuals attended the official launch and open day at Beech Farm, a development of 25 new houses on the former site of the original Beech Farm in Farnley Tyas.
On Friday 20 June, the Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Ken Smith, officially opened the development in front of more than 50 invited guests. He said:
“Looking around me, the new houses blend in entirely with the village setting. This is due to the thought and high quality materials that have gone into creating this development. It’s also encouraging to see that it’s already bringing new families into the village and school.”
On Saturday 21 June, the two Beech Farm show homes were opened to the public between 12noon and 4pm. More than 200 people visited the development and a number of reservations were made on the available properties.
“The day was a huge success. We were confident that the homes would generate a great deal of interest from the local area and further afield. To have more than 200 people visit on the first day, however, and for a number of these families to place reservations, exceeded even our expectations,” said John Radcliffe, John Radcliffe & Sons Ltd.
“Many of the visitors remarked on the quality, and that the homes really look as if they belong in the village thanks to the local stone walls and stone slate roofs,” he added.
A unique development
Beech Farm is a unique development for many reasons. It’s the result of ten years of local consultation and partnership working between Farnley Estates Limited, which owns the land, John Radcliffe & Sons Ltd., which oversaw development, and Kirklees Council.
“It’s well publicised that there is a shortage of good quality housing in areas where people want to live. We believe that Beech Farm is a great example of how development can take place that is sympathetic, rather than detrimental, to the local environment,” said John Sykes, Director Farnley Estates Ltd.
“We were very aware that the plans would cause concern in the village, which is why we entered into such an in-depth consultation process. We wanted to make sure that any development was in keeping with the area and enhanced, rather than detracted from the character of the village,” he added.
The development is a blend of local talent and trades, finished to a very high specification, and with many energy efficient features.
Own-build without the hassle
The two show homes are immediately available. Buyers for the remaining houses within the Beech Farm paddocks have the opportunity to custom-build their own home within the confines of the outline planning consent. It gives the purchaser almost all the benefits of own-build, without the hassle.
