Spotlight on…The Marbill Residences

marbill residences


With our final family moving into The Marbill Residences at Victoria Fold, Sabden, this week, we thought we’d share a few photos of these unique homes with you.

There are three Marbill Residences housed within a mews-style structure we built from scratch, but based on the industrial building that previously stood in its place. This explains the Marbill’s distinctive footprint – it curves along the course of Sabden Brook, which once powered the mill that gave Victoria Fold its name – and made for a build project that was challenging at times, with our team needing to work in the Brook to create the foundations. We’ve retained the original building’s name too, commemorating it in the carved stone that’s built into an exterior wall, and reused its original natural stone.



Being on the banks of Sabden Brook means the Marbill Residences enjoy beautiful views of the water, as well as far-reaching views towards Pendle Hill and into the Lancashire countryside from different vantage points. The building’s curved layout makes for large rooms with interesting shapes, including the huge top floor living spaces.

The homes have island kitchens leading to open plan dining spaces, and separate sitting rooms. The four bedrooms include master suites with integrated wardrobes either side of spacious shower rooms, plus bedrooms that could be used as home offices, studios or cinemas instead. Large windows flood the rooms with light and provide the aforementioned views, while high ceilings add to the airy feel.

We finished the Marbill Residences to our usual high standards and with lots of high quality details, including oak handrails for the stairs, which match the cottage-style doors; these are finished with contrasting black ironmongery. Outside there’s further contrast, with dark window frames and slate house numbers set against the warm natural stone elevations.

We couldn’t be prouder of these distinctive homes, which perfectly frame the entrance to Victoria Fold. At time of writing there are just two homes still available at the development, the four-bedroom Cobden and the five-bedroom Radcliffe, which, like the Marbill Residences, is part of a characterful mews that references the industrial building which stood there previously. Take a look at both homes here.
