The final brick has been laid to complete the first phase of Bondholder Wavensmere Homes’ £150 million Nightingale Quarter scheme.

The company has announced that phase one of the 800-home scheme, which consists of 125 properties, has been built.

It has also revealed that almost all of those homes, which consists of two and three-bedroom properties, have been sold thanks to favourable mortgage rates and incentives such as Help to Buy and the Government’s Stamp Duty break.

And as well as completing the first batch of homes, James Dickens, managing director at Wavensmere, said that the Tarmac for the road around the 18-acre site was also being laid.

He said: “It’s really a positive sign when you see a development start to reach vital stages of the build, and equally it’s a great sign for people who are buying the very first homes there, that they are one step closer to their moving date.

“From a customer’s perspective, the Tarmac being laid is a crucial stage to see how the homes sit on a site it really does come to life.”

The second phase is expected to be released later this year, while all 800 homes are due to be completed within the next five years.

The cost of homes for a two-bed property at the site start at £191,000 and for a three-bed property, £220,000.

Ashley Adams is handling enquiries for the first of the one, two and three-bed apartments and houses, being constructed on the former Derbyshire Royal Infirmary site.

James said: “Our estate agents Ashley Adams have been inundated with enquiries over the past few weeks as prospective buyers can now start to see the form of the homes take shape, and also realising how great a site it is in terms of accessibility to major industry throughout the Midlands.”

As well as providing new homes, the Nightingale Quarter will offer a ‘green oasis’ for residents, including cycle routes, an open-air gym and fitness area, children’s play areas and planting throughout the site.

The DRI’s iconic pepper pot buildings are being retained for community use, with residents having access to facilities including a café, gym, exhibition space and meeting rooms.
