Award Success for Higher Raikes
On Wednesday 19 June 2019, the Higher Raikes residential development in Skipton was awarded Best New Development at the LABC Yorkshire (North, East & South) Building Excellence Awards at a glittering ceremony at the Principal York Hotel.
Designed by Bowman Riley for RN Wooler & Co Ltd, Higher Raikes is a new residential development in an attractive setting on the semi-rural fringe of Skipton yet within walking distance of the town centre.
The development comprises 45 three, four and five-bedroom family houses, the majority of which are detached. 30 per cent of the development is affordable homes contributing to the need for additional houses in the Craven area of North Yorkshire.
Each home was individually designed to provide generous room proportions designed to cater to the needs of modern family life. The high specification properties are to be built in random natural reclaimed stone with landscaped gardens, private driveways and stone-built garages. Many of the plots will also benefit from views towards the surrounding hills and countryside.
Higher Raikes was designed to be sympathetic to the character of the surrounding area and of a much lower density than many new housing estates to create an attractive gateway development into Skipton.
Phases one and two of the development are now occupied with phase three recently launched to market for reservation.
The LABC regional awards lead to the Grand Finals in London where category winners for each area are then judged with the other regional winners on Friday 8 November 2019.
