Construction is set to begin on the 7,500 sq feet property on Barnsley Road, Newmillerdam – the average new build UK property is just 67.8 sq metres, or 730 sq feet – and buyers are urged to get in early.

Estate agent Yorkshire’s Finest said: “Extending to a staggering 7,500 sq feet, with an indoor swimming pool, is this modern mansion where construction is due to start soon.

“The early buyer will have the opportunity to select the interior choices of kitchen, bathrooms and potentially internal layout.”

The property will be set back from the road within a quarter-acre plot, with a private driveway and “in an elevated position with stunning far-reaching views”.

Yorkshire’s Finest said: “It is to be constructed of the highest-quality, real coursed stone with individual design detail such as stone quoins with a luxury interior that includes Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware, Neff appliances, porcelain tiling to floors with underfloor heating and Hansgrohe showers.

“Externally, the property will have remote control electric gates with intercom, CCTV, fully landscaped gardens, an abundance of off-road parking and even plastered and insulated garaging.”

Yorkshire’s Finest said: “There is also the option to buy the plot as a £500,000 building plot and a £950,000 build contract, which would total £1.45m and a huge stamp duty saving of up to £290,000.”
