A West Yorkshire-based premium estate agency has announced it has a record 12 homes for sale valued in excess of £1m as the higher end of the region’s housing market continues to perform well.

Charnock Bates, which specialises in selling fine, country and period homes, has properties at this price point across the county ranging from Hebden Bridge to Stanbury.

The most expensive property for sale is Hartley Royd Estate, a seven-bedroom period home with two detached cottages, barn and approximately 58 acres in Todmorden, at offers in excess of £1.95m.

Another home is Buckley Green Bottom Farm, a recently renovated four-bedroom property with 8.7 acres of land situated in Stanbury, Bradford, at offers of more than £1.69m.

Charnock Bates director, Ben Waites, said: “The upper tiers of West Yorkshire’s housing market have proven to be highly resilient in terms of buying and selling which is evidenced by us having a record 12 homes listed for sale above £1m.

“It is an active marketplace with buyers looking for fine, country or period homes and sellers either seeking to acquire homes of even greater value or deciding to downsize for a variety of reasons.

“At this price point, all the homes are truly distinctive and any prospective buyers are able to view the properties to see for themselves the outstanding specification and living spaces they provide.”

Founded over 30 years ago, Charnock Bates has offices in Halifax, Huddersfield and Ripponden with the average marketing price of its available properties being £600,000.
