Derbyshire residential estate agent grows at Ednaston Park

Ashbourne-based residential estate agents, Bennet Samways have committed to another larger office at Ednaston Park Business Centre (EPBC), marking their fourth office upgrade.

With a combined experience of 35 years, Stuart Bennet, former sales director at John German estate agents, and his business partner Nick Samways, former family business owner at Samways Cycles, both founded Bennet Samways back in May 2021.

Since day one, they have called Ednaston Park Business Centre their ‘home’. Within their first year, they consecutively occupied two, two-desk offices, ‘Cubley’ and ‘Wyaston’.

A year later, the team quickly expanded and in June 2023, they welcomed Katie Trow as sales executive and moved into their current office, ‘Kedleston’, a three-desk space. This month, Stuart, Nick and Katie have advanced into ‘Bradley’, a four-desk office.

Commenting on Bennet Samways’ growth within Ednaston Park, Gina Connett, facilities manager at Ednaston Park Business Centre, said: “We are so delighted to have been able to facilitate the growth of Bennet Samways and witness them flourish into an award-winning estate agent.

“The team are an asset to our business centre with their boundless enthusiasm, respect and contributions to the wider community here.

“Bennet Samways are the perfect example of how we nurture and build professional relationships with our tenants, working together to be one step ahead, creating a plan to suit growing business needs, whether this be a second or larger office space.”

Stuart Bennet, director at Bennet Samways, said: “Setting up our business here was an exhilarating decision, one that swiftly revealed the incredible potential of our chosen location. We soon came to appreciate the sheer brilliance of this workplace environment.

“The facilities provided here are nothing short of exceptional, leaving a lasting impression on all our clients and suppliers who relish every visit. At the heart of it all is Gina, the indispensable force who ensures the seamless operation of the centre. Her unwavering dedication and knack for swiftly resolving any issues that arise make her an invaluable asset to us all.”

Nick Samways, director at Bennet Samways, added: “One of the many perks of this location is the immediate access to lush grounds, inviting us to step out on invigorating lunchtime walks, spanning a revitalising mile.

“These moments not only rejuvenate our spirits but also contribute to our overall well-being, blending productivity with wellness seamlessly. The meticulously maintained grounds stand out providing a serene backdrop for our daily endeavours.

“Moreover, the provision of ample, free parking adds an extra layer of convenience, not just for us but for all who visit. This thoughtful gesture reflects the commitment of this place to prioritise the comfort and ease of its occupants and guests alike.

“In essence, operating our business from here is not just logical; it’s a clear-cut decision, a testament to the unmatched advantages this location offers.”

Set in 18-acres of landscaped gardens, Ednaston Park was built in the 19th century. Until 2016 it housed the St Mary’s Nursing Home; it was then bought by Clowes Developments in September 2017.

Since then, the developer has invested heavily in the property to turn it into modern office accommodation. Ednaston Park now comprises of flexible commercial space in the form of 32 office suites ranging in size from 54 sq ft to 553 sq ft, available as single or multi-office lets. It also features meeting rooms, a break-out area and landscaped gardens.

In 2022, Clowes demolished the old nunnery living quarters at the back of the main building to create a further three units known as Ednaston Mews, now fully occupied.

Recently completed at the start of 2024, adjacent to the business centre is the newly refurbished Ednaston Barns.
