Avant Homes has started construction on the first phase of its £137m, 600 new home multi-tenure development in Edenthorpe, Doncaster.

Eden Fields ,located just off the A630 on Mere Lane, is an 81 acre site will comprise energy efficient homes ranging in size from one to five-bedrooms. 

The site will feature 12 of Avant Homes’ house types with prices to be released at a later date.

The first phase is made up of 248 homes, of which 27 have been designated to affordable housing. 

Avant Homes is also committed to a community contribution of around £3.8m to support local primary and secondary education, a sustainable travel plan and open green space.

Avant Homes anticipates it will release the first homes for sale in September and the first residents are expected to move into their new homes in spring 2025.

Eden Fields will be delivered by Avant Homes West Yorkshire. 

The operating company’s managing director, Richard Hosie, said: “As a business, we want to provide quality new homes for everyone and Eden Fields will be a fine example of us delivering on that promise.

“There’s high demand in Edenthorpe for new homes which appeal to a diverse range of prospective buyers due to the area’s proximity to amenities, transport links and Doncaster city centre.”
