Huge investment in Warwickshire housing and infrastructure

29 Sep 2020

Simple Life by Sigma Capital Group plc is part of a £55m new housing development, Baberton Grange, in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, where 50 of its new PRS (private rental sector) homes are being delivered. The two, three and four-bedroom homes will be built by the UK’s leading mixed-tenure developer specialising in placemaking and regeneration, Countryside.

Part of a larger development in the area, the homes will sit amongst 145 properties that are available to purchase through open market sale with Countryside, and 105 affordable homes available from Midland Heart.

Sarah Batton, project manager at Sigma Capital, one of the leading build to rent housing providers in the UK, and responsible for the Simple Life private rental brand, said: “We’re delighted to be expanding Simple Life’s housing portfolio on such a major development in Warwickshire.

“With views of green fields surrounding the site as well easy access to many amenities and a host of excellent schools, the homes will appeal to families, retirees and couples alike.”

Huge investment has gone into the overall site, with contributions of in excess of £900,000 agreed in respect of biodiversity off-setting, bus services and cycleway improvements; along with education, libraries, open space and play areas.

Simple Life residents will benefit from its professional customer service and property management teams, as the company prides itself on creating a positive rental experience by going above and beyond what many expect from the rental housing sector.

Adam Daniels, managing director, partnerships West Midlands, Countryside said: “This is an important milestone for the Countryside team and every one of our local stakeholders. Throughout this entire process we’ve enjoyed a fantastic relationship with our partners at Sigma, Midland Heart and Bedford Council, which follows a 30-year tradition of working closely with local authorities, housing associations and the private rental sector.

“Our culture of collaboration has made the delivery of these beautiful, and much needed, affordable homes possible. We are proud of the work achieved here at Baberton Grange so far and know the positive impact it will make to the Nuneaton community.”

The site is conveniently located on Plough Hill Road, less than three miles to Nuneaton Train Station and within walking distance to a number of shops including the Co-op and Aldi.
