The last penthouse apartment at Barton Marina - complete with waterfront views - is up for sale, with a price tag of £475,000.

Family-owned Cameron Homes is building 54 two-bedroom apartments, including nine penthouses, at the Barton under Needwood Marina site.

Bosses said the Lakeside Apartments scheme had attracted strong interest since its launch earlier this year with the first three blocks of homes now sold out, and initial residents excited to be soon moving into their new homes.

Bev Coleman, sales manager of Cameron Homes, said: "This is one of our most exciting and successful developments and we are sure that the final penthouse on the market will prove popular.

"This luxurious and upgraded two-bedroom home enjoys magnificent waterfront and marina views, two parking spaces and two balconies and is priced at £475,000.

"A new community is being created at Barton Marina and we are delighted it is proving such a success. Its perfect position takes advantage of the vibrancy of the marina and the beautiful rural setting."

All the homes, which are being built in four blocks linked by a gatehouse in the landscaped development, either have views over the marina, which features 300 boats, restaurants, bars, a cinema and delicatessen, or they face the large lake, woodland and towpaths.
