Historic Nightingale Quarter Developers make Derby Agent Appointment
The developers of the historic Nightingale Quarter have appointed a Derby-based estate agent to put hundreds of its luxury homes on the map.
Developers Wavensmere Homes, which is investing £150 million into creating 800 homes at the city centre site, have today announced a partnership with Derby estate agents haart.
The largest privately-owned estate agency group in the UK, and with their new flagship office in the heart of Derby, Wavensmere directors were impressed by haart’s knowledge and professionalism during a lengthy and highly competitive interview process.
The agency signed up to the project this summer, which will include the sale of 125 luxury two and three-bedroom homes, soon to be released for sale, along with an array of apartments on the site of the former Derbyshire Royal Infirmary.
Sales Director Donna Smith said: “Once we met with haart we knew they were the right agents for the role. The Nightingale Quarter is a site that is already proving incredibly popular with potential buyers, and since we announced that enquiries were now being taken for the homes, we were inundated with people wanting to be on the list to be first to buy. So, bringing in such an experienced agency was very important to us in taking these forward.
“haart, part of the Spicerhaart Group, have an incredible history in working around the country, but most importantly they have local knowledge of Derby and invaluable contacts that will put the Nightingale on the map, and we are proud to have them onboard,” she added.
The agency, which has just under 200 offices across the country, is itself about to open its new flagship branch in Derby, and haart directors said this was because they have recognised the importance the city has in the Midlands’ economy.
Claire Drewett, Divisional Sales Director for Spicerhaart Land and New Homes, who has over 20 year’s experience in the industry, said they were thrilled to have been signed up as agents for such a prestigious development.
She said: “Nightingale Quarter will build a community in an oasis of calm and greenery but in the very heart of the of the exciting city of Derby. It will be THE place to live.”
Planning permission was granted earlier this year by Derby City Council, and Wavensmere directors were careful to keep the iconic Pepperpot structures available for the whole community to enjoy and continue being major landmarks of the city. They will be transformed into a community hub café, exhibition space, gym and meeting rooms.
The eighteen-acre site will be a ‘green oasis’ for residents, including cycle routes, an open-air gym and fitness area, children’s play areas and planting throughout the site.
All two and three-bedroom homes will be of a high specification and include parking spaces and gardens.
