Ilkeston-based housebuilder Fairgrove Homes is continuing its momentum at the iconic former Kimberley brewery with work now underway to restore buildings on the Brewery Yard phase – promising a range of new and converted 2, 3 and 4-bedroom designs.

This latest phase includes the restoration of the Grade II* listed buildings surrounding the former brewery yard – the maltings, kilns, kiln stores and tower. Once complete, these buildings will be converted into a range of luxury apartments and semi-detached properties as well as several modern office spaces.

For Fairgrove Homes, the preservation of the site’s heritage has always been vital, after the brewery served the town of Kimberley for over 170 years. Large parts of the former brewery will remain within the Brewery Yard phase, adding an additional layer of charm to the heart of this exclusive development.

“From the very start we wanted to retain the history that exists on the site by lovingly restoring the properties that were salvageable from the former brewery,” says Managing Director, Steve Midgley.

He continues: “The properties in the Brewery Yard will be contemporary but with a traditional twist. The development is also situated within a thriving community – allowing purchasers to enjoy what is essentially city centre living without the price tag, in a popular town, that is commutable from Nottingham.”

“The buildings form such an integral part of the community, so it has always been important for us to get this development right. Many buildings were almost beyond repair when we took control of the site but our team, in partnership with the local authorities, has worked tirelessly to ensure that we deliver a development that we know both purchasers and local residents will be delighted with.” adds Steve.
