Semi-rural living in two of Nottingham’s most convenient suburbs
The world’s oldest professional football team, the legend of Robin Hood and the UK’s ‘most vibrant music scene’: Nottingham has lots to offer to house buyers and, boasting several important employers and a terrific central location, the city is certainly on the way up.
One of the beauties of Nottingham is that it’s possible to live a short commute from the city centre without having to sacrifice a semi-rural location. The suburbs of Ruddington and Mapperley are less than five miles from the centre of the city and house builder Taylor Wimpey has chosen these locations for two of its flagship Nottingham developments.
“Mapperley is a lovely area to the north of Nottingham,” says Keith Osborne, editor of new homes portal whathouse.co.uk. “Taylor Wimpey’s Lime Tree Gardens is a village development of new homes, located on the edge of beautiful open countryside.”
Mapperley is just four miles from Nottingham and you don’t even have to make this small journey into the city to find all the amenities you need. This former farming community boasts shops, pubs and schools for children of all ages while the popular Mapperley Golf Club is just a mile away from the Lime Tree Gardens development.
The ‘Ainsdale’ four-bedroom town house is available from just £206,995 and boasts en suite accommodation, a kitchen/breakfast room, lounge, single garage, private garden and four good-sized bedrooms.
Ruddington Place is Taylor Wimpey’s development in the charming village of Wilford. “Wilford is on the south side of the city and is a bustling village set to benefit from a brand new tram line extension. Bordered by the River Trent to the north and open countryside to the south, the Ruddington Place development offers a semi-rural location while being within minutes of Nottingham city centre,” adds Osborne.
The ‘Crofton’ is one of Ruddington Place’s most popular homes. A three-bedroom semi-detached home with single garage, the ground floor boasts a lounge/dining room with French doors leading to the rear garden, a kitchen and a downstairs cloakroom. The first floor has two bedrooms and a family bathroom while the second floor features the master bedroom and an en suite shower room. The ‘Crofton’ is available from just £209,995.
Keith Osborne adds: “Taylor Wimpey’s two developments are perfectly placed for families and first-time buyers. Transport links from both locations Nottingham are terrific while both sites retain a semi-rural, village feel. It takes under two hours to reach St Pancras from Nottingham by rail while access to the M1 is easy from both Mapperley and Wilford.”
