New-build housing demand continues to be strong in Calverton

Over 90 per cent of new homes sold at development in Calverton


Calverton continues to be a popular choice for new home buyers as recent data released by Bellway East Midlands shows a strong demand for their properties at Willow Rise, off Platts Lane, Calverton.

Construction has now passed the halfway stage at the new housing development in the Gedling borough village of Calverton, where over 90 per cent of the properties have been sold.

Bellway East Midlands is building 82 new homes at Willow Rise, off Flatts Lane, including 66 three and four-bedroom houses for private sale and 16 affordable properties available for local people through low-cost rent or shared ownership.

Adam Champion, Sales Manager for Bellway East Midlands, said: “Willow Rise has been a much sought-after development right from the outset with our plans creating a great deal of interest when we announced them.

“Sales have been very strong here and there are currently less than 10 of the homes left for sale The build programme is progressing nicely and we have passed the 50 per cent construction milestone. Residents have moved into all of these properties and it is great to see a new community beginning to form.”

Work began at the site in 2021 and construction is set to finish in 2024.

Adam said: “All of the buyers, many of whom are local, have been attracted by the fact that the development is right on the edge of Calverton which is a thriving rural community. The village offers a host of amenities, which include shops, a library, a leisure centre and a number of pubs and restaurants.   

“Willow Rise is proving very popular with families as there is a selection of well-regarded schools in the immediate area. Manor Park Infant and Nursery School, Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School, and St Wilfrid’s C of E Primary School are all within walking distance, as is Colonel Frank Seely Academy, which provides secondary education.

“The convenience of the location has been one of the other main draws for buyers, whether that’s people who work in the centre of Nottingham just eight miles away or commuters requiring easy access to Derby, which is 25 miles away.”

  1. You cannot get in to doctors/dentist or park.Far too many houses,the area need a good clean up,so much litter around the place(tons more after bin days).And as for gedlingeye averting for the new houses being sold,thousands sold all over nottingham. Houses would still sell if they were built on a sewage farm. Give a year and see the forsale/to let signs go up.Calverton is now a town.Dont help when it was a village and people,objects to more being built,but you local mp runs a estate agents,so he was,nt going to try and stop it,more money for him.
