News: Sky-House Co Waverley Phase Two completely sold


The second phase of Sky-House Co Waverley properties is sold out before work on the site is even completed.

The Sky-House site in Rotherham is part of am ambitious campaign funded by the St Brides White Rose Partnership.

The project is based around the already hugely acclaimed back-to-back housing model created by the architects at Sheffield's CODA Studios.

Sky-House’s 21st century take on back-to-back housing creates sensitively dense, beautiful and naturally eco-friendly homes complete with their signature roof gardens, terraces and expansive windows.

Outside there is a compact front garden, home zone parking courts and communal play areas for children.

Following the 100% sales success of the first phase, Rotherham Council approved the second phase of the development, with a further 44 properties being erected alongside the current Waverley site at Lescar Road.

David Cross, director at Sky-House Co, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response to the Waverley development and to have sold the second phase completely fully justifies our faith in this important site.

"We are delighted to be continuing our working relationship with St Brides and are very pleased that Rotherham Council showed its faith in the Sky-House concept and gave this second phase its approval.

“This new phase features four four-bedroom town houses and, most excitingly, 40 of the next generation of the Sky-House, all built around a steel frame structure to aid the speed of construction and enhance the project’s already outstanding environmental credentials.

“In addition, this second generation also features extra floor space and an additional flexible space on the top floor, giving home owners even more living choices.

“And once again, we are working alongside the Harworth Group to ensure this second phase reaches the same high standards as the first, which was nominated for two regional and national awards.”

Sky-House Co has secured planning consent for its next residential scheme at Waverley, known as Sky-House Waverley Central.

This features 96 new homes in the heart of Waverley alongside the much-anticipated Olive Lane retail and leisure district which has recently been redesigned and resubmitted ready for delivery later this year.

Construction works for the 96 homes is due to start this autumn, with the first homes being released in late 2024.

Over 200 grand to live in a shoebox on an industrial estate. No thanks

Where does it mention the price?

Given the headline "Sky-House Co Waverley Phase Two completely sold out" clearly you are in the minority.

To be fair he always has been.

I saw the prices when they went on sale

Yes, people disagree with me or they wouldn’t have bought them but it doesn’t mean I’m in the minority. A few people have bought them, but millions of people haven’t.

Completely agree!

I think you can safely assume that you are in a minirity

I don’t care if I am, I’m still entitled to that opinion and I stand by it.

Out of interest, Would you pay that much to live in that house in that location?

You're really not in the minotiry! Those homes are truly awful!

I wouldn't actually think the homes were that bad if they were about 100 grand cheaper than they are, that combined with the lovely view of a mud heap, the AMP and the parkway makes me question the sanity of the buyers.

Don’t forget all the car accidents due to a complete absence of road markings.

Glad you reminded us of that. How many have there been exactly?

Anonymous,  October 6, 2023 at 11:31 AM  

"Numerous" according to this BBC report...

Sounds like an accident waiting to happen.

I'm surprised that the residents haven't painted their own lines at the junction

Anonymous,  October 7, 2023 at 2:23 PM  

They did but unfortunely they used whitewash and when it rained the lines were washed into the River.

The Star has posted an article about this on their Facebook page. Currently at 36 comments and not one is positive, but apparently I can safely assume I'm in the minority.
