Raven ST John’s Black Swan Yard development is under construction in the centre of town to the rear of the renowned Black Swan Hotel. It will include 17, two and three-bedroom, stone-built, cottage-style houses and apartments set within a gated community and surrounded by landscaped gardens. Phase one of the scheme, the first five properties, will be finished in July, while all 17 homes are due for completion by early 2017.

Prices at the development range from £395,000 for a two-bedroomed house, to £495,000 for a barn conversion with three en suite bedrooms and parking for two cars.

With the award-winning Black Swan Hotel’s services and facilities available to residents, including room service-style delivery of meals from the hotel restaurant, and preferential rates agreed at the nearby Verbena Spa, the development is aimed at home buyers in search of a rural retreat.

Country pursuits, such as shooting at neighbouring Duncombe Park, Rievaulx and Ravenswick shoots, as well as fishing, and walking on the North York Moors are all available close by.

Toby Cockcroft, director of Croft Residential, which is marketing the Black Swan Yard properties, says: “Brand new homes, built to such a high spec. in Helmsley very rarely come on to the market. Needless to say, these 17 properties are causing something of a stir and we have had enquiries from abroad as well as from all over the UK. The show home will be ready for viewing in April and several people have already contacted us about making off-plan reservations.”

Crowned “Best market town high street in Britain” last year, Helmsley is a visitor hotspot thanks to its location on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and its independent shops and galleries. The deli, Hunters of Helmsley, was recently named Britain’s best small shop. Properties in the area are sought-after.
