Almost sold out: Lakeside homes at Water's Edge Development fly off the market

OWN by the lakeside, catches are being made.

And we're not talking here about the carp, tench and bream at Manvers Lake.

A new haul of homes – yet to be completely finished by builders - has almost all been sold just yards from the banks of the water park.

Only three houses remain to be sold of the 49 two, three and four bedroom semi-detached and townhouses constructed at Water’s Edge by Hoober Homes.

The area is on the site of the former Dearne Valley Garden Centre off Station Road.

It looks out to the lake formed following the closure of the Wath Main and Manvers Main colliery complex and railway yards in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and is next to Manvers Waterfront Boat Club and the Waterfront Golf Course.

A Hoober Homes spokeswoman said the lake had proved to be a big attraction: “The homes have gone very quickly.

“The three that remain have not been finished just yet but should be around August.”

Families moving in will be forking out an annual maintenance fee of around £150 to £200 a year per plot which will help the upkeep of the lake facilities.

The homes up for sale are two four-bedroom semis with lake views from £335,000, and a three bedroom, three storey property priced at £245,000.

Planning permission was first approved in 2016 but that application wasn’t progressed and a fresh one received the nod in 2019. The area had been removed from 'flood zone one' status by the Environment Agency.
