Build-to-rent specialists Wise Living launched applications for the new family homes to rent last spring in the middle of the first national lockdown.

All properties were reserved online in just a matter of weeks, proving testament to the high demand for quality rental homes in the town - and the popularity of the location off Great Central Road.

With the build now complete, the past few months have seen the Wise Living team following social distancing guidelines and working hard to settle residents into their new homes.

Anne Malone, head of customer experience at Wise Living, says she isn’t surprised by the popularity of the Old Brewery and its other suburban developments.

“The Old Brewery has been launched, let and fully occupied over the course of a global pandemic, which clearly demonstrates the resilience of the build-to-rent market,” she said.

“Home has never been more important and that fully applies to renters too.

"They want a place to call their own but, quite rightly, want quality and security.

"We’ve always said that we are aiming to drive new standards of living in the sector.

“We have had many enquiries from people in search of more outside space and professionally-managed properties that allow people to easily work from home.

"It’s no surprise that suburban living is proving so popular.”

Properties at The Old Brewery include the three-bedroom Byron with open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, and the two-bedroom Lawrence with allocated parking and fully integrated contemporary kitchen.
