With work underway on 38 new homes, which are being built in the magnificent grounds of the historic Sneaton Castle in High Stakesby on the outskirts of Whitby, Harrison Homes has just released the first nine properties at the development, known as Castle Fields, for sale via local estate agent, Hendersons.

Harrison Homes is part of the award-winning York-based development firm S Harrison. Once complete, Castle Fields will offer an extensive range of homes, from two-bedroom bungalows to five-bedroom detached family houses.

The first homes will be ready to move into by the end of 2020.

David Clancy, from S Harrison said: “It’s a very unique development with views of the moors complemented by the spectacular backdrop of Sneaton Castle. The homes are being built to the highest standards, and there will be 16 different house styles to choose from.”

Nick Henderson, from Hendersons, said: “Castle Fields has generated significant levels of interest and we have already taken our first reservation. The glorious location of this stunning collection of houses and bungalows, alongside Harrison Homes’ exacting design and build quality is really appealing to both local buyers and those from further afield.”

Castle Fields is set on the edge of one of the UK’s largest national parks and the unique collection of modern, contemporary homes are surrounded by heather filled moors and an attractive coastline. Nick added: “Castle Fields offers the very best of town, country and coastal living. Within minutes buyers can be walking on the beach between Whitby and Sandsend, enjoying the countryside between Grosmont and Goathland or heading into Whitby to enjoy all the town’s shops, restaurants, bars and attractions. The transport links are good too, with directs trains and buses to Scarborough, Middlesbrough, York and Leeds.”
