Client Project: Chevin Park by Ben Bailey Homes


Ben Bailey Homes Yorkshire is a regional operation of national housebuilder Avant Homes – one of the largest residential property developers in the UK. Ben Bailey Homes is entirely focused on providing a superior specification and finish, always striving to deliver a high quality product.

Set in 200 acres of parks and woodland, Chevin Park is a spectacular renovation of a collection of Grade II listed buildings dating back as far as 1888 including old hospital wards, offices and outbuildings. Properties on the site range from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom townhouses, making it a great choice for anyone from young professionals to families. Within the grounds of this development there are a number of amenities including tennis courts and football pitches. Future plans include a small selection of retail units and the village of Menston is just a short distance away.


Each property at Chevin Park has been designed and decorated to a high quality standard and finish. The contemporary design combines elegant period features with modern fittings. The external works have blended new and existing materials very well; the style of the doors and windows externally are in keeping with the overall character of the Victorian architecture. Work to the roofs has been carried out carefully in order to minimise any alterations to the original look. Materials were reused where possible and are in keeping with our Technical Manual requirements. We are very proud to be part of this build and look forward to the future phases.


Site manager, Matthew Ellis said: “I have been the site manager at Chevin Park for five years. Due to the complexity of the site and its listed status each day can bring with it a new set of challenges - whether it be a structural, ecological or planning matter. Having a great team is paramount to achieve the highest quality of build. We rely on our Premier Guarantee Surveyor for his service; he is always on hand to advise and assist which is vital on a project of this scale. He is one of the most knowledgeable people I have come across in the industry. Chevin Park has been recognised with a number of awards over the last four years which is testimony to the hard work of the entire team. Even now when I stand back and look at a finished plot, I am still blown away by the standard of home we have created and feel extremely proud. I always visit the customer once they move in and it gives me great job satisfaction to see them in their beautiful new home at Chevin Park.”
