Old pensions building site offers a great new return

Have your say

Work is nearing completion on the first phase of a new housing development in the grounds of historic Ranmoor Hall in Sheffield.

City architectural design company Coda Studios created the plans for eight large contemporary homes on the 2.5 acre site.

The project, which has been christened Storth Hollow, is being developed by Jaguar Estates and sold through Fine and Country.

The first three homes are all sold and nearing completion. The first residents are now on site and will be joined by others shortly.

The remaining five houses will be developed in the next 12 months and already two are reserved.

The properties have their own gardens, but also share a landscaped ‘secret’ garden with two large ponds, a waterfall and stream, large rockery, paths and woodland.

“This is a site that had been dormant for the last few years,” said Coda managing director David Cross.

“Many people will know Ranmoor Hall as the former Department of Work and Pensions building, and Coda also did the work to transform the hall back to a significant private residence.

“This has been a fantastic project and one that we are already extremely proud to have as part of our design portfolio.”
