Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has sold the former Warmsworth Reservoir site in Doncaster to award-winning housebuilder Conroy Brook who will develop the site under its Ben Bailey brand.
Keyland sold the 1.5 acre site with outline planning consent in place for a residential development of up to 23 homes. Conroy Brook/Ben Bailey will be moving the development forward having recently secured detailed planning approval for 19 homes.
The land sale continues a long-standing relationship between Keyland and Holmfirth-based Conroy Brook since the housebuilder was appointed as Keyland’s preferred partner under its Small Sites Initiative (SSI) in 2014. The partnership led to the delivery of Forge View, an exclusive development of luxury homes in the Ranmoor area of Sheffield and the 2016/2017 SummerFord residential development in Ingbirchworth. Most recently in 2017, Conroy Brook purchased a site from Keyland on Otley Road in Harrogate, North Yorkshire which has seen the development of nine luxury townhouses.
Conroy Brook has been developing natural stone new developments across Yorkshire with some 40 years of experience, specialising in detached family homes, retirement apartment complexes and commercial care homes. The company has a passion for attention to detail and commitment to customers, giving it a strong reputation within the housebuilding industry and culminating in multiple award wins.
The former covered reservoir site is located in Warmsworth, approximately 4.5km south-west of Doncaster town centre and is surrounded by a mix of commercial and residential uses including housing and allotment gardens. Easily accessible by foot and by car, there are also several bus services to nearby towns as well as into Doncaster.
Peter Garrett, Managing Director of Keyland Developments Ltd, said; “We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with Conroy Brook with the sale of the Warmsworth site. The former covered reservoir has been disused for a number of years now and to know that another redundant site is being transformed and brought back into use as a much-needed residential development is an excellent outcome.”
Richard Conroy, Chief Executive, Conroy Brook, said; “Our Warmsworth development follows on from the success of HighFields in Clowne, which was the first development for our Ben Bailey brand since its relaunch by parent company Conroy Brook. Having had Clowne become such a great success in North Derbyshire, we are very much looking forward to seeing that same standard of outstanding workmanship brought to South Yorkshire.”
