The market town of Bedworth has risen steadily in recent years. With its array of amenities, transport links and good schools, it’s not hard to see why.
If you’re considering moving to Bedworth, here’s some information about the sort of property you can expect to find here.
The most sought-after property types in Bedworth
Modern detached homes
Bedworth is especially popular with families, which explains why the contemporary detached properties are always in high demand. These spacious homes are usually built by leading developers such as Persimmon, Cartwrights and many others, and come with driveways, ample living space, and gardens too.
If you’re keen to invest in a modern home, check out the properties around Woodlands Park and nearby. Here, you’ll find some great detached homes, which can usually be purchased for £250,000 upwards.
Semi-detached 1920s houses
The town’s semi-detached homes also offer great value for money, and have the advantage of often being close to the shops and the train station. If you’re fond of properties with a bit of character, these tick all the boxes, as some have retained their 1920s features, such as bay windows and fireplaces. They typically offer outdoor space and generous driveways too.
Locations like Frances Crescent are the perfect place to search if you’re interested in 1920s homes, and a four-bedroomed semi-detached is likely to cost around £250,000. Alternatively, look to places like Coventry Road, where a three-bedroomed semi-detached home costs approximately £175,000.
There’s a great range of terraced properties on the market, and best of all, they’re highly affordable, which makes them ideal for first-time buyers. Many are fairly modern (such as those on Hazel Grove or John Knight Road), but if you like older buildings, you’ll be able to find a few Victorian terraces closer to town. For example, Newtown Road has some classic red-brick Victorian properties, which have features like decorative storm porches and cornicing.
Expect to pay around £140,000 to £160,000 for a good-sized terraced home with a garden – a real bargain when compared to the country’s average prices.
Another excellent option for first-time buyers is an apartment. Bedworth has plenty to offer; with most being flats in purpose-built blocks. Some of these are conveniently close to the station (which makes them perfect for commuters), not to mention near the main high street. There are also a few flats in sub-divided older properties too.
Many of the town’s apartments offer spacious living rooms, with light, airy bedrooms and pleasant communal areas.
There are a few bungalows in Bedworth, and these tend to go quickly, thanks to their generous accompanying land. It’s fairly standard for a bungalow to come with a reasonable garden and drive, and many of the properties cash in on the outdoor space with the addition of a conservatory or summer house. Goodyers End is the place to look if you’d like to buy a bungalow, though there are a limited number in other locations too.
