Oakhill Road, Sheffield
Project: Residential Development
Location: Oakhill Road, Sheffield
Client: Jaguar Estates
The development at Oakhill Road in Sheffield includes the conversion of an existing building into 2 no. 4-Bed semi-detached houses, plus 3 no. new-build 4-Bed detached houses and 6 no. new-build apartments.
The original building on the site had been converted and extended as the Brincliffe Oaks public house. The central, 3-storey building of the public house was originally the farm house of Nether Edge Farm and dates back to the late 18th Century. There had been several brick-built modern extensions to the farm building – some of which had been badly fire-damaged. The extensions were unsightly, not in-keeping with the original farm building and in poor condition.
Self Architects’ proposal for the site was to remove the poor quality extensions and re-establish the street frontage along Oakhill Road with new-build apartments and detached houses. The original farm house is retained and extensively repaired. The new-build elements are designed to reflect the character of existing properties in the Nether Edge area.
