One of the most prestigious residential developments in Beverley for many years, Old College in Molescroft, formerly the site for East Riding College, is progressing well with the first homes sold and reservations on other plots being taken.
There are 36 ultra luxury, designer homes, built on this 9 acre site, each having up to four bathrooms or en suites. Each one a truly remarkable home in what is a stunning location. Old College is a short walk from the centre of Beverley, being located in the highly desirable North Bar Without, New Walk, Molescroft Road area.
Once on site you realise why this is going to be one of the most impressive places to live, not just in Beverley but the East Riding. To begin with there are fabulous views over the Westwood and the Racecourse. The peace and tranquillity is amazing, it’s like living in the countryside but with the added advantage that you are just a short walk away from the centre of this historic market town. You couldn’t get a better combination.
As you would expect with properties of this kind the design and finish is outstanding. There is an emphasis on the layout, making sure each home accommodates the luxury lifestyle that buyers will be looking for. With homes as large as these the architects have been able to create generous living spaces, designed for everyday life. For example the combined Kitchen, Dining and Day Rooms create the most wonderful, useable, large family spaces. And it doesn’t stop there, many of the bedrooms have their own En Suite bathrooms and most Master Bedrooms have walk in Dressing Rooms. They really have put a lot of thought into the layouts, the detail and the specification at Old College.
And the company have recently completed their new show home, pictured here, the Goodwood, a four bedroom, four bathroom/En Suite house with a huge detached double garage. A truly wonderful, luxury home, with a layout and character that impacts on you as soon as you walk through the front door. One thing you notice immediately is the space. The “L” shaped hallway leads you into the Kitchen, Dining, Day Room one way and the fabulous Living Room the other. As you walk down toward the Day Room you pass a corner Study, filled with light from two windows. Further down on your left is a Snug, ideal for adults, teenagers and young children alike, the perfect hideaway.
But one of the most stunning rooms in this house is the Kitchen, Dining, Day Room combination. A vast, modern room with a beautiful, but still highly practical kitchen. It comes with integrated, full height, “sunken into the wall” kitchen units and AEG appliances. The surfaces are made from KRION, the kitchen area having a seamless sink and worktop. The top of the island unit also uses this beautifully finished material, underneath which there are ample deep storage drawers. The island is big enough to accommodate all the family for informal eating and socialising. In the show home this room is divided by an eight seater dining table and then a massive settee that complements the bay window. Light streams in through this and the French doors at the kitchen end.
Moving back down the hallway you pass the downstairs WC and Cloakroom, the size of a full bathroom in many smaller homes. This leads to the Living Room that will quickly become a favourite room for relaxing and chilling out, particularly on a Summers evening, with the French Doors opening out on to the beautiful paved area and garden. The two large sofa’s in this room are complemented by a baby grand piano!
Upstairs the luxury continues. Getting to the first floor via the wide staircase you get to an “L” shaped Landing of equal proportions to the ground floor Hall. A truly magnificent way of navigating your way from bedroom to bedroom and a space that will ensure privacy, peace and quiet. As you get to the Master Bedroom you realise why these are homes of distinction. The bedroom itself is massive but it’s the built in Dressing Room and the En Suite with its Porcelanosa sunken bath, walk in shower and wall mounted vanity units and sanitaryware that deliver true extravagance.
Moving across the Landing the indulgence continues, a very spacious second Bedroom with its own En Suite. In the case of the show home this has been furnished for an older teenage boy and it really works, stylish and a perfect size. Bedroom three is the opposite in terms of design and feel, a beautiful girls room with everything the younger woman could want, including a walk in end shower in the En Suite. The fourth bedroom is an ideal visitors room, built on a corner with two fabulous windows, which means plenty of natural light. The first floor layout is completed by a Family Bathroom, fitted out to the same high standards as the Master Bedroom, and ideal for use by the house’s occupants or any visitors.
Prices for these homes range from the six hundred thousands to over a million pounds. But when you get the size, location, luxury, quality and finish that each home at Old College offers you expect to pay this sort of money. They truly are magnificent houses that will make fabulous, highly desirable homes.
