Avant Homes completes fourth Sheffield City Region site acquisition to deliver 382 new homes
Avant Homes has acquired a parcel of land in Waverley, Rotherham, marking its fourth acquisition in South Yorkshire throughout the last 12 months.
The homebuilder has exchanged contracts with owners Harworth Group plc for the 14.06-acre site and has submitted a planning application to build a mix of 220 three and four-bedroom properties.
These new homes will sit alongside the 61 family homes currently under construction at Avant Homes’ Sorby Row development. Elsewhere, works are also underway on 39 homes at Heartwood and 62 homes at The Brickworks, two developments in the village of Stannington in Sheffield.
With a combined value of £101m, the four new sites will bring a total of 382 homes to the Sheffield City Region once completed.
Rob Slocombe, Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, said: “We are on a fast-moving upwards trajectory and the south of the region is a key focus for us. The last 12 months have seen high demand for our product here and the decision to purchase further land at Waverley demonstrates our dedication to investing in Sheffield, Rotherham and beyond.
“We are entirely committed to offering a product that meets the ever-changing needs of our customers’ and this development will give buyers the opportunity to purchase a high-specification new home quite unlike those offered by our competitors.
“Keen interest is already being shown in the proposed scheme and we are taking enquiries in readiness for the launch of the new development.”
Duncan Armstrong-Payne, associate director of major projects at Harworth, added: “Avant’s decision to further invest in Waverley is yet more evidence of the development going from strength to strength.
“I’ve been delighted by the quality of homes that Avant has delivered at Sorby Row and I look forward to their next phase of housebuilding in 2018.”
Based in Wakefield, Avant Homes Yorkshire is an operating company of the Avant Homes group – a private developer of residential property in the UK.
