Meet the team behind popular Derby development


Leading regeneration specialist Compendium Living is inviting property seekers in Derby to meet the team at the recently-launched second phase of its Castleward development.
Located on Liversage Street, Castleward is a stylish collection of 54 two and three-bedroom homes and apartments, with properties available to purchase now.
Having been on the Castleward site since its launch of phase two in November 2019, Trainee Sales Executive Claire Pretty, 36, prides herself on providing a welcoming a friendly customer service.

Claire said: “My favourite thing about Castleward is that we are involved in regenerating part of the city centre and creating a new community. Every day is different and I am always learning something new. “Learning a new industry is challenging, but the team have been very welcoming and helpful – I can easily ask for advice and learn on the job. “Castleward is in a lovely area close to local amenities, with the railway station and central Derby shopping centre walking distance away. The Nightingale is my favourite style home at the development, as it’s a fantastic sized family home.”

Senior Sales Executive Clare Hutchings has been a part of Castleward since January this year, and has been working in the property industry for her whole career.

Clare commented: “A typical day in the job is always busy, sometimes hectic, and never the same each day! It can be a challenge getting across the urgency of how quickly we are selling, but I love being at Castleward and how fast-paced it is here. “We’re fortunate to work for such an excellent employer; the best part of the development is working with this wonderful team. “I adore the Chester style home as it provides flexible, open-plan living that’s perfect for all types of purchasers, from first-time buyers to working professionals.”

Castleward is perfectly situated a stone’s throw away from Derby city centre. With a large variety of shops, local cafes, bars and restaurants across the three shopping centres, there really is something for everyone.

Being England’s most central city, Derby has excellent transport links. With the newly-refurbished railway station just a five-minute walk away, daily connections are provided to London St Pancras and other major UK cities. By road, Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham are all less than one hour away.

Castleward is open from Thursday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm and Monday from 11am to 5pm, with viewings by appointment only. Potential purchasers should book their ‘VIP’ appointment to see for themselves the style, quality and value of the homes at Castleward.
