The previously undeveloped ten-acre greenfield site has 111 new homes, including 55 bungalows and 56 family homes.

The Chapel Waters development offers one, two and three bed single-level homes catering for downsizers.

The family homes have two, three and four bedrooms complete with public open space and sustainable urban drainage system, including a duck pond and bird hide.

South Yorkshire developers BIG CIty Co have echoed the Bassetlaw style of pantiled roofs blended with brick, stone and render.

The scheme, funded by ASG Money, is being delivered by Broadfield Construct and designed by architects CODA Studios - sales are via BIG City’s own internal sales team.

BIG City Co was founded by David Cross, chairman of CODA Studios, Stewart Davies and Anthony Cundall of Barnsley energy specialist A Shade Greener - which is providing vital funding - and financial expert Ian Hart of ASG Money.

David Cross said: “Despite months of uncertainty in the construction industry, we are delighted to be able to say that Chapel Waters is progressing pretty much on schedule and our show home will be opening in July, just four weeks behind our planned launch date.

“At the same time, the first 14 properties on the site will be ready for our buyers. These range from two bed starter homes to four bed executive homes and two-bed bungalows.

“Later phases will include more house types to appeal to an even wider range of buyer.

“We have one bed bungalows for the entry level buyer up to three bed luxury bungalows overlooking the duck pond with a series of two bed bungalows and more townhouses across the site.

“Early enquiries have proven strong with a database of first-time and last-time buyers alongside families already contacting us for our development.”

Phase one prices start from £149,950.
