Redrow offers a wide collection of beautiful two, three, four and five-bedroom new build homes in Derby and the wider Derbyshire area. Derby is the most central city in the UK, and sits just 18 miles from the Peak District National Park. Living in Derby gives you a great balance, as this modern city has both brilliant connections to the UK as a whole, but is set against a stunning natural backdrop. There’s no wonder why it’s such a popular place to live.
Redrow’s Heritage collection of new homes in Derby uses a gorgeous Arts and Crafts style of architecture. This aesthetic is tailored to complement the home environment of each development, but also hides a breadth of modern thinking. For example, when you buy a Redrow new build, you’ll get:
- Ultrafast broadband included as standard.
- An energy efficiency rating of ‘A’ in your new home.
- A secure and friendly neighbourhood.
- All the amenities you need within a convenient distance.
- Lots of surrounding open and green spaces.
Added to this, there’s also a range of useful Incentives that you can take advantage of. For existing homeowners, Help to Sell makes the whole sale process much easier. Redrow can handle it all for you, as well as contributing towards estate agents’ fees. Then there’s Prime Position, which can assist you to reserve a new build that’s not yet up for sale. There’s no obligation to follow through: you’ll just make sure that you don’t miss out on your dream home!

When it comes to your leisure time, there’s plenty to do within the city of Derby itself as well. Cathedral Quarter is a great shopping destination, and is an enduring favourite with foodies.

For those who are more into the festival scene, there’s Derby Feste, Derby Folk Festival, and the annual CAMRA Beer Festival in the winter months. You’ll always have some entertainment to look forward to.
Derby is situated on the banks of the River Derwent. As such, you can enjoy the River Gardens, boating lake and Chaddesden Park water playground. There’s a craft village to explore too. As regards other outdoor destinations, many have enjoyed Markeaton Park gardens, Osmaston Park, Alvaston Park and Sinfin Moor Park over the years. Even more green spaces can be found at Bass’ Recreation Ground, Derby Arboretum and Darley Park. If you’d rather use your time outdoors to get closer to nature, then Darley Abbey Park and Nature Reserve is at hand.
For those who always look for the best heritage days out, Derby has great options too. Derby Museum & Art Gallery, the Museum of Making and Derby Cathedral are just a few of the appealing options. When you factor in the Donington Park circuit to the south of the city, and the nearby Foremark and Staunton Harold reservoirs, there really is something for everyone.
Perfectly-Placed New Homes Across Derbyshire
Sitting at the centre of the UK, Derby has excellent transport links. The M1 motorway runs to the east of Derby. It links the south of Derby to London, and also goes north towards Sheffield and Leeds. Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham and Stoke are close to hand. The A6, A38, A50, A52 and A61 are also in the Derbyshire area, providing more connections. In particular, the A52 means that Nottingham is only a 20 minute drive, without even using the motorway. The train station is just to the south east of Derby city centre. This lets you get to Leicester in less than 20 mins, to Birmingham in under 40, and to London in 1 ½ hours. The East Midlands Airport is 15 miles from Derby city centre too, with frequent flights to the UK and Europe.
Redrow’s developments also stretch into the wider Derbyshire area, which borders Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire and West Yorkshire. Derbyshire is largely rural, and is dominated by the Peak District. Only the M1 motorway is located in this county, but the amount of good A roads more than compensates for this. And the region is overflowing with great experiences. You can hike up Mam Tor and Kinder Scout, visit the Valley of Dovedale, roam in circuits around Ladybower Reservoir, or discover Monsal Trail and Chatsworth House. There’s Elvaston Castle, Hardwick Hall and Haddon Hall for heritage attractions, as well as Buxton Museum and Art Gallery. For a real curiosity, you can visit Poole’s Cavern, which is a limestone cave that’s 2 million years old! Kids will love places like Gulliver’s Kingdom theme park, and of course we’ve only scratched the surface with this list. The Derbyshire region will keep you busy for years to come.
