Situated on the A6, midway between Bedford and Kettering, the charming town of Rushden benefit from being well-connected while still maintaining a small-town feel. As the fifth largest town in East Northamptonshire, there is plenty to explore. 

With a population of approximately 40,000 (2017), Rushden is steeped in history. From farming to lacemaking, its 19th-century industrial roots have paved the way for today’s bustling community. 

Having benefitted from a local regeneration project that focused on the town’s High Street, alongside many new investment initiatives highlighted by the national North Londonshire awareness campaign, the popularity of the town has attracted an influx of house buyers, and rightly so. With the newly developed Rushden Lakes, a £40m retail and leisure facility, thriving in its first 18 months of operation, Rushden is an up and coming town that caters to all aspects of modern life.  

With Rushden’s developing interests and attractive property prices, it continues to be an exciting prospect for first-time buyers and buy-to-let investors, who are taking advantage of the many new mortgage products available. With empty-nesters taking the opportunity to free up some of their equity by downsizing, the diversity of property within Rusden is waiting to be taken advantage of.

Recognising that such a large residential area had relatively little representation from quality estate agents, Andrew Simpson partnered with local property expert Mark Weekley to open a Simpson and Weekley branch in the town in 2010. With the same offering of client commitment, unprecedented knowledge and access to a premier marketing network, Simpson and Weekley became the local market-leader within just 6 months of opening.

Open seven days a week and until 7pm on weekdays, the team at our Rushden branch are always on hand to answer all your questions. With all seven of our regional branches connected via modern software, we can access your property details at any time, ensuring you’re never left waiting when it comes to staying up to date. We take advantage of a network-wide database to put your home in front of as many potential buyers or tenants as possible, helping to increase the number of viewings we conduct. 

With over 50 years’ combined experience in the industry, our knowledge of the property market within Rushden and Higham Ferrers is unrivalled. When it comes to buying and selling, letting or renting, we are on hand to ensure you find a property that ticks all of your boxes.
