The scheme is part of the wider Thoresby Vale redevelopment project by Harworth Estates, which will see Nottinghamshire’s last deep mine transformed into a residential development. The community element, featuring a business park, a retirement village, new primary school, leisure facilities and a 350 acre country park attracted Harron to the development.

John Booth, Managing Director at Harron Homes North Midlands, said: “We are looking forward to providing high quality new homes to the area. Having worked with Harworth Estates previously, we’re certain they share our values, and we are very pleased to work with them in Edwinstowe and to be part of this important redevelopment project”.

Harron Homes’ 11.84 net acre site forms the first residential phase, and construction work on the homes is well underway. The sales cabin will be open by the end of June, while the showhome is expected by the end of August.

The development will feature a mix of luxurious three, four and five bedroom homes, 11 of which will be affordable properties.

There will be 11 home styles for sale to accommodate a variety of needs, including the Edlingham, a five bedroom detached home with detached double garage, and the four bedroom Settle. Thoresby Vale is situated amongst some of the region’s most popular woodlands and forests, while still easily accessing city life with Nottingham centre 20 miles away.
