Harris Lamb has placed a collection of historic properties in Rotherham on the market for residential conversion.

The historic buildings of Swinden House, the Coach House, the Lodge and Sitwell House on Moorgate Road are to be converted to high quality apartments and preserved as landmark buildings within the new development.

The 6.7-acre site of Swinden Technology College has planning permission for 101 new properties, including 27 high-end apartments incorporating the conversion of the existing buildings.

Located opposite Rotherham General Hospital, the site has excellent access links, being just two miles from the town centre and Junction 33 of the M1

Chris Jones, Head of Residential Land at agents Harris Lamb, said: This is a high-quality opportunity for developers seeking prime locations. The site is surrounded by high-quality residential buildings and is set in a peaceful, quiet environment, benefitting from a strong landscape belt around its periphery, and a tree-lined access road off Moorgate Road.

“The site was previously used by Tata Steel as a centre for Research and Development having a mixture of buildings across the site including the Grade II Listed Swinden House, along with its associated buildings and Sitwell House.

“We are now seeking unconditional offers for this rare opportunity. We anticipate high levels of interest from developers keen to take the helm of what is sure to be a desirable conversion project within the region.”

A full data-room has been prepared for interested parties.
