The new neighbourhood nestled on the edge of the River Trent, just a short walk from Nottingham city centre and West Bridgford town centre, is proving to be extremely popular with January home-buyers after three apartments and one house were snapped up this weekend.
Trent Basin, which is making a name for itself with its green-energy credentials and state-of-the-art living spaces, held a second open day for the public this weekend – which saw more than 100 potential new residents take guided tours of the community.
Four properties were reserved over the weekend, leaving less than 40 per cent of phase one of the neighbourhood available for purchase.
Chief executive of Blueprint – the specialist regeneration developer behind the concept of Trent Basin – Nick Ebbs, was on hand to talk to visitors about the ethos and inspiration of the buildings and wider scheme.
He said: “We were thrilled to see so many people come along to Trent Basin for guided tours of our show apartment and show home this weekend.
“Interest in the community has been steady since we started to sell the properties last summer, particularly from those who are keen to maintain a sustainable lifestyle and move to a place which is completely geared towards reducing our society’s carbon footprint.
“Feedback from visitors was very positive – people of all ages were enchanted by the stunning river views which are the central focus of Trent Basin and we were pleased to hear such glowing praise for the furnishings and colour palettes chosen for the show apartment, concepts which were tied together by Laura Davies of Territory Interior Design to reflect the water views.”
Trent Basin is being marketed by local agents FHP Living and Royston and Lund. Both sets of agents were on hand at the weekend to show prospective buyers around the community.
Steve Parker of FHP Living said: “Following the open weekend, there are now just three apartments including the stunning duplex left for sale in phase one at Trent Basin. We’re encouraging anyone interested in the remaining homes in the apartment block to arrange a viewing sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.”
Work on site for phase two of Trent Basin is expected to start in the summer, with Blueprint already taking expressions of interest from potential buyers in the next stage of the community.
