The first homes have now been made available in leading developer Westleigh’s fifth and final phase at its popular Belgrave Riverside development in Leicester.
The selection of homes released for sale encompasses a range of designs, including one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses.
The apartments are located in the attractive, contemporary Charles Bennion Building, named after the businessman and philanthropist who established British United Shoe Machinery, formerly located on the site of Belgrave Riverside. The building boasts a fresh, modern design which maximises space and high windows to allow natural light to flood in.
All apartments include a generous open-plan kitchen and living area, either one or two double bedrooms, and separate bathroom or shower room. These stylish homes are available in a range of sizes and layouts, with every home benefitting from off-road parking, offering a wide choice to potential buyers.
One bedroom apartments in the Charles Bennion Building start at £124,950, but through the government-backed Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, a deposit could be as little as £6,250 with a £93,750 mortgage. The remainder is funded by a government loan worth up to 20% of the property’s value, with no repayments in the first five years.
For growing families, the stylish four-bedroom Irving could be the perfect fit. Offering a contemporary take on the traditional townhouse design, the Irving offers modern family living over three storeys.
A spacious living room on the ground floor is complemented by a kitchen-diner. French doors in the living room open out into the garden, providing the perfect social setting in the summer months.
The first floor provides two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst the second floor offers two further double bedrooms, including the impressive en-suite to the master bedroom.
The Irving is on the market at £255,000 but at the 80% Help to Buy price, it is available for just £204,000.
Robert Orr, Sales Director at Westleigh, commented, “Belgrave Riverside has been a major success story so far. We have welcomed over 200 buyers since work first commenced in 2010, and have turned a derelict former factory site into a thriving inner city community.
“In addition to our ever-popular Irving, Hammond, Greenwood and Overton home styles are the attractive apartments. The Charles Bennion Building is being tastefully designed and provides some fantastic options for couples and single professionals, so we would encourage anyone looking for somewhere to base themselves within easy reach of Leicester city centre to come and talk through those options with us.
“Our friendly advisers are on hand at our marketing suite from 10am to 5pm daily and are more than happy to help home seekers with their search.”
Located a short distance from Leicester’s famous Golden Mile, Belgrave Riverside is less than two miles from the city centre and is in close proximity to primary schools, a secondary school and Leicester College’s Abbey Park campus, making it an ideal location for growing families with children of all ages.
