Pendle Council and Barnfield Investment Properties have completed the transformation of 13 derelict properties on Stanley Street in Whitefield, Nelson into one two-bedroom and six four-bedroom houses.
The main contractor was Nelson-based Barnfield Construction. This was the first housing project involving Pearl2, the council's joint venture company with Barnfield Investment Properties.
Funding came from the Homes & Communities Agency, Regenerate Pennine Lancashire and the Heritage Lottery Fund's Townscape Heritage Initiative.
Stanley Street is a main route into the town centre and the project is part of wider regeneration work to revitalise Nelson.
The Victorian homes have been refurbished and modernised and are equipped with eco features including a combined heat and power boiler made in Lancashire and sun pipes.
As Stanley Street is in the Whitefield Conservation Area, particular attention has been paid to restoring and recreating period detail including sash widows, wood-panelled doors and traditionally tooled chimney stacks.
Brian Cookson, the Council's Executive Director for Regeneration, said: "The scheme had to balance heritage-conservation with energy efficiency and the need to create a mixed type of housing. These are the keys to long-term stability and a thriving neighbourhood."
Iftekhar Bokhari, the council's senior regeneration officer for Whitefield, said: "The scheme has been welcomed by the local community – it extends housing choice in an area dominated by two-bedroomed properties."
Liberata co-ordinated the refurbishment work and is managing the sale of the properties. The houses are on sale with offers invited from £149,950 for the four-bedroomed homes.
