Elka's Rise in Ilkeston, Derbyshire is an exciting new development, offering a range of stunning two, three, four and five-bedroom homes. Situated between the cities of Derby and Nottingham, Ilkeston is a sought-after location with good local amenities and attractions.
Standing proudly on a hill, Ilkeston is a large town situated in the Erewash Valley. Its buildings reflect the industrial history of the town, with its 19th-century baroque red brick town hall and the impressive St Mary's church. In contrast with the town's industrial heritage, it's home to some pretty parks and boasts attractive countryside surroundings. It's only 7 miles to Nottingham city centre, less than half an hour's drive, so you'll be able to make the most of this thriving city. If you prefer to go into the city by train, the average journey time from Ilkeston's station is 17 minutes. No wonder this is such a popular location for a new home.
Elka's Rise is situated close to the nature reserves of Trowell Marsh, Manor Floods and Straw's Bridge, ideal for spotting wildlife and enjoying the great outdoors. Shipley Country Park is only 5 miles from the development, with access to the Nutbrook trail, a 10-mile traffic-free route between Shipley Country Park, Long Eaton and Heanor. Children can learn about the town's local history at Erewash museum, a small but enjoyable attraction with fun activities for young visitors. You can see the latest movies at the Scala Cinema, one of the country's oldest cinemas. Sporting activities can be found at the Rutland Sports Park and Victoria Park Leisure Centre. The latter offers a main swimming pool with a designated area for diving, a splash pool for family fun and a sensory pool with an exciting mix of water, lights and music. Derbyshire has some good golf clubs, including the renowned Pewitt public golf club, which are within easy reach.
Everything you need for day-to-day living is close to hand. Tesco Extra and Morrisons supermarkets are within 1 mile of Elka's Rise, as is Ilkeston town centre. The local area benefits from a selection of popular stores, plus two retail parks and plenty of places to eat and drink.
Located midway between Derby and Nottingham, Ilkeston has good transport links which include a new £10m train station. Operated by East Midlands Trains and Northern Rail, there are direct trains north to Chesterfield, Sheffield and Leeds and south to Nottingham, as well as cross-country routes. Living at Elka's Rise also gives you easy access to the M1 motorway and to the A52. For journeys further afield, East Midlands Airport is less than 11 miles away.
