With Spring around the corner, the annual spring clean will soon be upon us and for those living in apartments, without the benefit of lofts, sheds and garages, finding a home for the possessions we don’t use every day can be a challenge.
Tackling the issue of storage space was a top priority for the architects designing the Allerton Apartments at Countryside’s Kings Park development in Harold Wood, Essex. Offering a selection of contemporary one and two-bedroom apartments, the homes are set among tree-lined avenues, surrounded by woodland and parks.
Every home offers a generous hallway lined on one side with large floor to ceiling cupboards, perfect for hiding away skis, vacuum cleaners, tools and other belongings. Separate clothes storage is in abundance in the master bedrooms, which benefit from full length fitted wardrobes, while a secure bicycle storage space is available to residents on the ground floor of the development.
David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Central region comments: “Our surroundings play a great part on how we feel and cluttered homes can make people feel disorganised. With a variety of storage options to easily hide the clutter away, Allerton Apartment residents can ensure their living spaces remain calm, tidy and spacious.”
Finished to a high specification, these light and airy homes are perfect for modern lifestyles. Every apartment boasts outside space, with ground floor apartments benefiting from large terraces and balconies to the apartments above, enabling residents to make the most of the beautiful parkland setting.
Spacious open plan kitchen/dining spaces flow into the living area and outdoor space beyond, ideal for entertaining guests and ensuring the natural flow of light and air through the apartments. Kitchens are contemporary in style, fitted with gloss white handleless units, dark grey ceramic floor tiles and composite worktops to the two-bedroom homes. Master bedrooms are large with luxurious en suites as well as family bathrooms fitted with white sanitaryware, cream wall tiles, contemporary chrome accessories and oak panelled baths.
Ideally located for travel into central London, Kings Park is within the Oyster Card zone, with frequent train services into London Liverpool Street in just 35 minutes. By 2019, Crossrail will provide fast links from Harold Wood station to Central London, Heathrow and the West. The development is also well connected to the motorway network, with easy access to the A12, A127 and M25 motorway.
