  • Residential Development Opportunity
  • Offers are invited by Wednesday 14 September 2022.
  • Unconditional offers in excess of £2 million are invited for the freehold interest (excluding Carleton Lodge)

A rare opportunity to acquire a largely ‘oven ready’ residential development which, when complete, will comprise a gated community of 9 units, including 4 no. five bed detached executive homes and 5 no. 4 bed mews style houses. The detached properties are to be built in stone over three storeys, each with double garages and southerly views across an adjoining paddock which forms part of the freehold title (edged blue). The site extends to approximately 0.89 hectares (2.2 acres) – the consented (red edged) site extends to around 0.49 hectares (1.22 acres) Presently, plots 1, 3 and 4 are built to ground floor base level only and the detached double garage to plot 1 is complete. Plots 5 to 9 are more advanced being of a SIPS panel construction with brick faced elevations and pitched roof structure with concrete interlocking roof tiles. Please note, plot 5 has not been built in accordance with the consented scheme (over) and is deemed to now encroach into adjoining green belt / paddock land to the rear (south). The Receiver has recently withdrawn a planning application (submitted prior to the Receiver’s appointment) which sought to address this retrospectively, with a view to allowing a purchaser to control the process moving forward (see Town Planning section below). The development site adjoins a fully refurbished property known as Carleton Lodge which is a substantial residential property available for sale separately through Crown Estate Agents at a guide price of £1.1 million.


The property is situated in the pleasant village of Carleton which is around 2 miles to the south east of Pontefract town centre and around 1 mile west of the A1 motorway junction at Darrington. Carleton includes a number of schools including Carleton Park Junior & Infants School and Carleton High School (both Ofsted ‘Good’). The village is in close proximity to a range of local amenities including local village and convenience stores, public houses, Pontefract RUFC and nearby Darrington Equestrian Centre.
