Nuneaton has something to offer every type of homebuyer. Its station makes it appealing to commuters, and the wide range of amenities (including a cinema and sports centre) are excellent for families. Add this to the good local schools and ongoing regeneration work, and it’s easy to see why the area is rapidly becoming more popular.
If you’d like to move to Nuneaton, here’s a guide to the most sought-after property types in the town.
The desirable property types in Nuneaton
Generously sized detached homes
Nuneaton’s properties are excellent value for money, and you can invest in a multi-bedroomed detached house, complete with driveway and garden, for under £700,000 here. Architecturally, there’s quite a bit of variation on offer. The 1920s homes often have bay windows and fireplaces, while the modern houses come with features like stylish mock-Tudor gables and wood-beamed facades.
If you’d like to buy a large detached property, search in areas like Hinckley Road, or The Long Shoot development.
Developers have been active in Nuneaton for quite a few years now, and the result is several prestigious developments, offering attractive contemporary homes of all sizes. There are some detached houses on the market, and a wealth of terraced and semi-detached modern properties for people who want to spend a little less.
If you’re looking for something with plenty of character, you’ll be pleased to know that Nuneaton has a good range of period properties. You’ll find a few quaint cottage-style homes on the outskirts (in areas like Caldecote) and some Victorian terraces in locations such as Charles Street or Attenborough Road, which have a surprising amount of space inside. The 1930s homes are also sought-after; especially those that have retained their art deco-inspired original features.
Semi-detached family homes
Families are especially drawn to Nuneaton’s semi-detached properties, as these are reasonably priced and offer plenty of living space. The homes situated close to the town centre are always desirable; especially the 1920s homes with a driveway. A little further out, you’ll find some semi-detached houses that are excellent value for money, and priced well below the national average.
Nuneaton caters well for first-time buyers, with a huge variety of apartments on the market. At one end of the scale, you’ll find upmarket luxury flats in converted historic buildings, such as those at Caldecote Hall. The Church Street development caters for retired homebuyers, and offers a high standard of living within a gated community.
Many of the town’s apartments are in purpose-built modern blocks, with a one-bedroomed flat being on the market for well under £90,000. This is a great investment for someone looking to get on the property ladder.
The town’s bungalows are usually situated on the outskirts, with most being modern or built in the 1950s to 1970s. The advantage of these properties is that they usually come with plenty of accompanying land, including a sizeable driveway and large garden. Several owners have reconfigured the internal layout to create an open-plan space, which works well for families with children.
