Buxton Properties has been providing high quality student homes in Nottingham for over 25 years. As a family run business – owned and managed by a father and son team – we understand that students want modern, well-equipped, good value homes, close to University, friends, night-life and shops, while parents need the peace of mind of knowing that their son or daughter is living in a well-maintained, safe and secure home. We aim to provide not only a lovely home, in the right location, but also an excellent service to back that up.

Nottingham born John Buxton,  one of the directors of the company, bought his first property 30 years ago and began specialising in student accommodation in 1989. From the very beginning he aimed to provide high quality, well maintained accommodation at a fair and reasonable price. Although times and students’ expectations have changed this ethos still applies.



Dawn Buxton is a fellow director of the company and is involved with all aspects of the business from property acquisitions and refurbishments, lettings and collecting rents to managing the summer changeover of tenants and all the cleaning, repairs and maintenance that entails.
