Eco-friendly properties prove a sales hit

East Midlands housebuilder Waters Homes has announced that there is just one chance left to buy at its latest Nottingham development.

Since being unveiled earlier this year, the new eco-friendly properties that form the Carrington Gate development, just off Haydn Road in the Sherwood area of the city, have been snapped up by a mix of first time buyers and investors.

Each of the two-bedroom properties, priced at £125,000, include a range of features designed for sustainable living, including low energy lighting and Photovoltaic panels on the roof to help dramatically reduce energy bills.

For Dominic Waters, development director at Waters Homes, it is the combination of these elements and location that have resulted in the success of Carrington Gate:

“Intelligent living is very much a priority for buyers at the moment. Not only do they want a fantastic place to live, but they also want their property to work harder for them and offer true value for money.

“There’s a lot of energy returning to the property market, but buyers, quite rightly, are demanding more, which is why we include eco-features as part of our basic specification.

“To have just one property remaining after selling all of the others off-plan is quite unusual. However, it shows the new eagerness to buy and get onto the property ladder or to make an investment opportunity, as prices are once again on the up. Carrington Gate has also benefited from being in a desirable location, close to the city, as well as to a host of local amenities.

“Given the current sales rate, this opportunity will not be around for long.”
