Wymersley Road, Willerby

Nineteenth Century lodge inspires contemporary homes.

Wymersley Road presented an exciting opportunity to build four new properties that complemented an existing nineteenth century lodge that we renovated next door. The site offered beautiful views overlooking Springfield Park and Golf Course, as well as being nearby to local amenities in Willerby and excellent transport links to Hull.

Director of Southwell County Homes, Dick Southwell explained that, “Finding this site gave us the opportunity to do something special as we had this lovely old lodge to work with and base our new properties on. I saw the potential in this site straight away.”

Designs were produced with the expert assistance of Carl Chapman, of Frank Hill & Son. Dick goes on to explain that, “We designed four new homes with features taken from the original building and used materials to suit the style of the homes.” Two of the properties were sold fully fitted, with the remaining two offering the buyers the chance to design their own interiors.

The finished properties certainly attracted compliments from local residents. As Dick explains, “Now that they are finished, the properties look as though they have always been there as we have incorporated the original features so well.”
