With a name like Duchy Homes you’d expect a premium product - but is there a market for ‘executive’ dwellings in Doncaster?

It seems so.

The Leeds-based company has announced plans for a new development in Braithwell near Doncaster. The new homes, which will be detached, four or five bed and with double garages, will be built from stone within the Braithwell Conservation Area.

The company expects to be on site in spring, subject to planning approval, with the first people moving in next year.

The move follows the recent submission of proposals for nine detached houses on Park Drive in Sprotborough. And it comes after the firm spent £13.5m on homes on Plantation Grove in Sprotborough - which all sold - and developments in Chesterfield and Handley Cross.

The company says its properties have the latest media and communications hub and branded fittings from suppliers including Porcelanosa, Ideal Standard and NEFF.

Jim Cropper, managing director for Duchy Homes, said: “After the success of our 
Sprotbrough site which recently sold out we are very excited to announce our plans to bring The Orchard, Braithwell, to market.

“The properties will provide a peaceful location for these purchasers who want a village life within easy access of the major motorway routes.

Duchy Homes was established by Jim Cropper in December 2011.

It is part of the GMI family of companies – one of the UK’s leading construction and energy groups.
