Bloor Homes has seen a wave of interest from homebuyers at its Keyworth Rise development in Keyworth, weeks ahead of its official launch. The sales office is set to open on 10 April, with show homes launching in May.

In a trend that the national housebuilder has noted across the Midlands in recent months, house buyer priorities have changed markedly during the lockdowns, with more space and a relaxing lifestyle close to green open spaces being elevated up the wish list.

Coupled with a range of incentives that are available, including zero Stamp Duty, Help to Buy and the recent 95% mortgage guarantee, more and more buyers are looking to step onto or up the property ladder.

Michele Rose, Sales Director for Bloor Homes Midlands region, comments: “We’re not surprised by the interest we’ve had since the first homes at Keyworth Rise were released.  During this latest lockdown, we’ve seen the same level of buyers as we would usually expect heading into Spring and as restrictions start to lift, even more people are now making the commitment to purchase a new home.

“I think that people are buying homes with a view to not going back to the office, certainly not on a full-time basis.  The pandemic has led to many people moving out of big cities into more rural locations like Keyworth, as the need to commute has decreased significantly.

“House hunters are looking for homes that offer more space, both inside to accommodate a home office and outside, with desirable gardens suitable for families and friends to relax, play and socialise together.

“At Keyworth Rise, we have a range of styles and sizes of homes, with something to suit everyone, from first-time buyers and young professionals to families and those looking to downsize.”

Keyworth Rise, a collection of two-bedroom bungalows and two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, offers all the benefits of living in a charming village yet is just six miles from everything Nottingham has to offer.  The village is ideally located for the A46, offering easy access to Loughborough and Leicester, and onwards to the M1 motorway. Prices start at £225,000.

Over eight hectares of the site will be green space and will include footpaths and two children’s play areas. Homes at the development have been designed to complement the local area and surroundings and will include a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced properties.

Keyworth Rise is less than half a mile from the village centre, which has a good range of local amenities, including shops, pubs, schools, recreation facilities and a health centre. The village is well served by local bus services, providing connections to other local villages and into Nottingham city centre.
