St Saviour Old Dairy – New Jersey Houses
Approval for Robert Adam’s new classical housing development in Jersey
Planning permission has been granted for a mixed development of 78 traditional new homes & 9 apartments on the site of the old Dairy in Princes Tower Road, St Saviour, Jersey.
The site has been occupied for the past 43 years by Jersey Dairy and the purchase by property development company, Dandara, has enabled the Dairy to move to purpose built premises in Trinity.
Designed by well known, classical architect Robert Adam, the development will deliver a mixture of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom family homes in a variety of traditional styles. Located around green space and near to a number of the Island’s schools, the development will create a pedestrian-friendly environment suitable for family living.
Before commencing the design work, Robert spent significant time in Jersey researching and understanding the best in housing detail and types typical of the Island to create unique housing development to complement Jersey’s heritage.
Facing the existing trees set back from the road and separated by a newly created street will be a row of classically proportioned town houses with integrated garages. Further in, a mixture of different and individual properties will form traditional crescents and terraces. Larger detached properties will be approached from a cobbled street leading through to the valley below.
Commenting on the design, Robert Adam said. “This is an exciting and unique development for Jersey and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work on it. Our key objectives are to create a special place that reflects the character of the Island whilst adding something extra and integrating the whole project into the village and the surrounding landscape. We trust this will be a wonderful place to live and visit.”
Martin Clancy, Dandara’s Managing Director commented, “Once again we are raising the bar to provide high-quality residential properties for the Island and more importantly, family homes in an ideal location. Our proposal is for just 78 houses and 9 apartments on this very large site covering 5.5 acres. Each and every home will enjoy green open space and ample parking for residents and visitors. The unique design by Robert Adam will ensure that our current and potential purchasers will be able to choose from a range of styles which best suits their individual tastes and lifestyles. Equally as important is the benefit this deal brings to Jersey Dairy and the future of one of the Island’s oldest industries. By working together we have satisfied the demands of future business as well as more family homes in close proximity to the Island’s schools, St Saviour and St Helier”.
