The highly-regarded village of Ackworth is now home to Moorlands, a development of just eight spacious and carefully planned detached family homes.
Each of the properties at Moorlands has been designed with modern living in mind; the emphasis being on open plan layouts and the effective use of natural light.
Energy efficiency has also been a major influence on the designs, which comply with the 2010 Building Regulations (Part L (A) Conservation of Fuel and Power in New Dwellings). The houses consequently benefit from increased insulation to roofs and floors, high value thermal blockwork to traditional masonry walls with blown cavity fill, double glazing filled with argon gas, high efficiency gas fired condensing boilers, low energy lighting and external doors & window frames with high thermal efficiency. Given the ever increasing cost of energy, these measures can make a substantial difference to home fuel bills.
The Ackworth area boasts an excellent range of educational, retail and leisure facilities. These include the very successful Quaker-run Ackworth School, for children aged between 2 and 18 years, Castleford’s Xscape complex, which houses the country’s largest real snow ski slope, and the adjacent Junction 32 designer shopping outlet. Other nearby attractions include the golf and horse racing courses at Pontefract and the superb National Trust house and grounds at Nostell Priory.Contact us about this site
