The development is located on Barrowford Road, to the West of Colne town Centre. The Site, formerly an annexe of Nelson and Colne College forms part of the overall re-development of the site.
Derwent House is the sympathetic conversion of the former Colne Grammar School into 23 luxury apartments.
The project involved the demolition of all the ancillary buildings to leave the existing building standing in its previous magnificent glory.
The transformation involved structural alteration, the restoration of the westmorland green slate roof, new windows and upgrading of the building fabric.
Internally, each apartment has been built to an extremely high specification to exacting standards by the client incorporating German kitchens, extensive feature tiling and a video entrance system.
To the front of the property, a secure underground car park was constructed, providing parking and generous storage area for the owners. The construction involved the removal of 3,300m3 of earth.
The remainder of the site comprises 32 executive houses incorporating double garages with 5 different house types. The designs of the houses are sympathetic to the original grammer school building, using similar materials and colour palettes.
