Housebuilder Honey is to deliver the Iris development of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes on an eight-acre site off Barnburgh Lane, in Goldthorpe.

The development will be Sheffield-based Honey’s first in its home county since launching last October.

Iris will feature 16 house types which the housebuilder says have all been specifically designed to combine “style, substance and sustainability” for buyers.

Prices range from £184,995 for a two-bedroom mid-terrace property to £374,995 for a four-bedroom detached home.

Honey expects to

Work at Iris is due to start this month, with a four-bedroom detached showhome at the development planned for January.

The first residents are expected to move into their new homes in the summer.

Honey is also making contributions of £540,000 to education, £71,000 to sustainable travel and £153,000 for green space/open space for initiatives to benefit the local community.

Honey chief executive Mark Mitchell said: “We are very pleased to now be in a position to start building our first ever development in Yorkshire.

“Iris will showcase the style, substance and sustainability of the type of homes we will deliver on future sites that we acquire throughout the county and beyond.

“We believe our range of new homes at Iris are unmatched at their price points and will provide much needed high specification residential properties for people living locally or moving to the area.

“As soon as we submitted planning for Iris in February this year, prospective buyers started registering their interest in the development via our website. Now that planning has been granted, we are speaking to those people and welcome any one else interested to get in touch with our sales team.”

Honey has analysed consumer insights and trends to inform its house type designs , including the flexible use of all living spaces.

Standard features in every Honey home include bi fold doors and boutique style bathrooms.

All properties will have an electric vehicle charging point.

The houses will also accommodate the Future Homes Standard which requires all new homes being built from 2025 onwards to produce 75-80 per cent fewer carbon emissions.
