The Property

A purpose-built ground-floor apartment, which we understand was designed with the additional benefit of mobility needs, forming part of the superior apartment block known as Centro West, constructed by Miller Homes in or around 2005/2006. The apartment benefits from a high degree of security with electronic gates to the rear car park, and security entrance to the main block with intercom phone to the apartment. Available with immediate vacant possession, the well-appointed and well-proportioned accommodation is accessed via from the communal entrance hall, with stairs and lifts, to the private entrance hall with built-in store cupboards, and open-plan living dining kitchen affording modern contemporary living, together with two double bedrooms, and modern bathroom. Outside, the apartment benefits from allocated car parking space near the front entrance, and pleasant communal gardens.

Note To Purchaser(S)

The apartment is available either on a 25% shared ownership basis, or, as we understand from Metropolitan Housing, on a 100% ownership at £110,000 (one hundred and ten thousand pounds).


The property enjoys a popular and highly convenient location, with the rear car park adjoining Markeaton Brook, being close to the historic Friar Gate area of the city, within minutes walking distance of the centre and amenities. The apartment is also highly convenient for the University of Derby, together with access to the ring road system, A52, A38, and A50 for commuting further afield.


When leaving Derby city centre by vehicle, proceed along Friar Gate, and after passing under Friar Gate bridge, then at the traffic lights turn right into Bridge Street, right again into Agard Street, before finding Centro West on the left-hand side.
