THE first flats to be completed at the revamped Park Hill complex go on sale from tomorrow - when four show homes will also be unveiled to the public.

Urban Splash, which has received interest from more than 1,000 people after announcing completion of the first 78 revamped properties, has 20 of them on sale to begin with.

The four show apartments are fitted out in four different styles:

■ A 1960s-themed apartment created by Sheffield Hallam University interior design students, who won a competition to decorate a home.

■ An interior based on the theme of Second Life with furniture refashioned or remodelled, created by architects Hawkins/Brown.

■ A retro feel mid-20th century look, developed by Studio Egret West.

■ A traditional-style apartment aimed at the ‘mature downsizer whose family has now grown up and moved on’, put together by specialist interior design team NoChintz.

The homes are said to be high-spec, with underfloor heating and large floor to ceiling windows which look out over the city and Park Hill’s newly landscaped courtyard.

Park Hill marketing suite opens tomorrow from 11am until 6pm, and prices for outright ownership start from £90,000 for a one-bed home.

The 50-year-old Grade II* listed flats complex has been given a new lease of life by Urban Splash with support from Sheffield Council, Great Places Housing Group, English Heritage and the Homes and Communities Agency.

Nicola Wallis, director of residential sales at Urban Splash, said: “All the apartments look fantastic and the designers have done a great job in fulfilling their brief. ”
