Find your perfect new home in Ilkeston
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.
