Huge interest in Duffield homes despite virus crisis

Duffield has proved it is one of Derbyshire's most sought-after locations after 350 people inquired about homes on a new development despite the Coronavirus crisis.

Ivygrove Homes is developing the former Derbyshire County Council Highways Depot site which has been a village eyesore since being vacated five years ago.

It put the first phase of their four and five-bedroom homes on the market just two weeks ago and has reported a huge level of interest despite the lockdown precipitated by the virus crisis.

The development on Derby Road, which has been named Burley View, will consist of 14 new-builds as well as the renovation and extension of the original depot gatehouse.

Ivygrove Homes is the new residential arm of the well-known Ivygrove Group, the family-run business which has made a big impact with commercial development successes such as Eagle Park in Derby and many others.

Its chairman, John Blount, said:

"Ivygrove Homes’ policy is to continue to provide prestigious residential homes within small, select developments across the Midlands.

"We are a family company and we are building eye-catching family homes.

“Burley View is an opportunity to breathe life back into a part of Duffield which had become something of a blot on the landscape following the closure of the highways depot.

“It will follow our core company ethos of constructing in a high-quality manner that complements or restores surrounding architecture."

Ivygrove Homes recently built ‘The Hill’ at Darley Abbey and also started work on four more homes on adjacent land off Duffield Road.
