Filming for the hit Channel 4 property programme, Location, Location, Location, has taken place in Aspley this week with estate agent, Richard Watkinson & Partners.
Kirstie Allsopp, property expert and presenter, visited the city on Thursday (24 September) to survey a property on Norbreck Close in the popular area of Aspley for first time buyers looking to get their foot on the property ladder. The couple was immediately attracted to the property due to the substantially sized garden for the growing of wild flowers.
Amy Tillson, manager at Richard Watkinson & Partner’s Nottingham branch, said: “We got a call from a production company a few weeks ago enquiring as to whether we had any properties available for Location, Location, Location. The producer then viewed the property and was impressed with its suitability for the programme.
“It’s been really exciting to have a camera crew around for the morning, it’s not something we get to be involved in every day. The keys were picked up from us at 6.30am, the crew were filming at the property for most of the day and Kirstie called later in the day to put an offer in.
“Kirstie was an absolute delight and is obviously very knowledgeable about the business; she has been presenting property programmes for 15 years so certainly knows what she’s talking about when it comes to buying a home.
“This property in particular is in need of internal modernisation but offers a huge amount of potential for development – something which the Location, Location, Location team obviously realised. There is a considerable amount of inside space, perfectly suited to both first time buyers and expanding families, as well as off road parking.
“To have national exposure for the great housing stock we have in Nottinghamshire is also fantastic. There’s such a range in the county – from elite homes with acres of land to inner city, one bedroom apartments for young professionals.
“House prices in the East Midlands have also seen an increase over the past year, so it’s a particularly profitable time for the city’s property stock – houses are worth more so it’s certainly a good time to sell.”
