Building work has begun on the first phase of Sherwood Oak Homes’ new housing development in Clipstone, Mansfield.
The development - to be known as The Oaks – is a high-quality residential scheme that will provide some 313 new properties to the market in 2022.
Phase one of the development is located on Clipstone Road East and consists of 30 properties – 10 three-bedroom properties, 19 four-bedroom properties and a single five-bedroom home.
Local award-winning contractor Henry Boot Construction has been chosen to deliver the project while selling agent Pygott & Crone are set to market the properties.
The homes will be spacious and built on sizable plots, offering more land between than the standard. The properties themselves will benefit from high ceilings and include high-spec additions such as bi-fold doors out to the gardens. In addition, the development will be built with the natural environment in mind, with features designed to attract wildlife and to ensure residents can enjoy the outdoors, including a number of green spaces and children’s playgrounds and bird and bat boxes.
With the oak tree being a key feature of the neighbouring Sherwood Forest as well as the name of the development, a number of oak trees will be planted throughout.
The s106 agreement for the development outlines plans to make improvements to local Rights of Way to encourage walking and cycling as well as investments in Spa Ponds and Vicars Water – two nature reserves local to The Oaks.
Peter Roope, Development Director at Sherwood Oak Homes, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to start construction on this new community of high-quality homes in such a fantastic area. The development is ideally located in a well-connected part of Nottinghamshire where residents will be able to enjoy the space and countryside around them whilst being just a short distance away from both Mansfield and Nottingham. To deliver the very best new homes, we are working with impressive local businesses Henry Boot Construction – who will bring their wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area to the project – and Pygott & Crone estate agents. What’s important to myself and the team at Sherwood Oak Homes is to create homes that provide the space and quality that homeowners demand and deserve and to create peaceful new communities with access to nature. It’s very exciting to be moving forward with The Oaks.”
Pygott & Crone is likely to release homes from the first phase for sale in early 2022.
