Sheffield's 1st One Mill New Build

Recommended Posts


this went on the market about 18 months ago

Its been around that long I actually cant remember exactly.

One thing that I do remember is the mass bloody hysteria in the local market 2 years ago despite sentiment everywhere else sagging.

Honest guys you wouldnt believe me, places going under offer in days at 20% above asking.

Anyway I digress.

This gaff was the final release of a site of similar houses and four or five, I think, mass blocks of flats.

All very nice but not my cup of tea at the asking prices.

All of the other houses sold off plan, you can see that they all went for about 850k.

This one was the final release and is a bit better, a bit nicer, a bit better located, has a bit bigger garden etc etc

The local rag had it for its front page one night.

It was officially our first ever newbuild to sell for a mill.

Well if it sold it would be.

It festered at a mill.

Then 950

Then 900

Now its 850, be quick and grab it while you can.

Or wait a bit and get it for 400 pmsl

Serious point

There are about 5 properties that arent as nice as this, if nice is the right word.

As they sold for what this is now Id be worried if Id bought one.


Oh and I love how it was originally marketed as 'plot 13'

I wonder if Persimmon are supersticious????

Come on you lot

Stop being so tight fisted

Its interesting

It is no longer on the agents website

However there is still a for sale sign up

Tumbleweed still blows outside

It is completely not lived in

The vegetation all around is overgrown

To all intent it looks like they have withdrawn it from the market to save face

Its empty

They cant sell it

WTF does that say about the other houses that sold for more than 850k 2 years ago?


Every 'executive' detached on this development is now an overpriced dead duck

Well I hope so....



PS The old fire station across from this site, as well as another plot 300m away look about to be developed
