       Proudly standing on the eastern entry to Burley in Wharfedale since the latter quarter of the 18th Century, historic Burley House is Grade I Listed; built by a major local landowner Thomas Maude in the neoclassical style, with the main buildings supported by a charming mews and adjacent coach house.
Mentioned by Pevsner in his architectural survey of the West Riding (The Buildings of England: Yorkshire West Riding 1959), the building was last used as a private home in the early years of the 20th century before becoming St. Phillip’s school, which ran until the 1960s. The building moved from an educational use to become The Flying Pizza Two, briefly a hotel and then the headquarters office of Greenwoods Menswear and most recently Findel plc.
Now in the care of joint developers Square Feet and Yorplace Ltd these magnificent period buildings will comprise three stunning luxury apartments and a substantial four storey family home, whilst the courtyard mews buildings and adjacent coach house will form character homes ranging from two bedroom units to larger four and five bedroom properties. In addition the site will play host to three brand new three storey houses forming a secluded terrace attached to the coach house and running towards Burley’s delightful village green.
Yorplace Ltd and Square Feet are well established and highly regarded development partners having completed many successful high calibre schemes across the region. The most local
is the much admired conversion and development of ‘The Malt’ – a landmark regeneration scheme to be found just a couple of hundred yards from Burley Court close to St. Mary’s parish church.
Burley Court will continue the blend of considered and sympathetic conversion and new build, with each property boasting a comprehensive specification combining modern day requirements with the fabric and character of the period buildings that form the heart of this beautifully positioned project.
The accompanying floor plans show the generous scale of the properties within the
main house and sheer variety within The Mews. The Coach House is a unique building, thoughtfully extended through the provision of a garden room, whilst the three new build units offer three and four bedroom layouts planned over three floors.
Great care has been taken within the conversion to maintain the integrity of the setting, with thoughtfully placed parking, extensive retained planting and mature trees – the whole combining to create a unique scheme within a convenient and highly accessible location.
