Committed commuters could make big savings on the price of their dream home by moving just an hour outside of the city. According to research by Lloyds Bank, towns that are within an hour’s commute from central London, have an average house price of £294,903 compared to Central London’s average of over £1 million. Perfect for savvy commuters, a collection of new apartments is available at Countryside’s development, Horsted Park, in Chatham, Kent, which features in the top five most affordable commuter towns for city professionals and is under an hour’s commute to London.
Surrounded by the Kent countryside and with excellent travel connections, Horsted Park is located in a prime location to enjoy the outdoors with the added benefit of quick access to the City. The combination of an impressive building standard, thoughtful award-winning design and strategic location creates a perfect place for commuters to call home.
Emma Fearn, Associate Director for Sales & Marketing of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities South region comments: “We appreciate that London property prices are out of reach for many homebuyers, so we are pleased to be able to present a more affordable option in a prime location for those working in the city. Horsted Park combines the best of both worlds, thanks to its green surroundings and efficient transport connections.”
The contemporary two-bedroom apartments at Horsted Park boast stylish open-plan living spaces, well-equipped kitchens with integrated appliances and flooring fitted throughout. The two double bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and the master bedroom also benefits from fitted wardrobes. These new apartments are ideal for first-time buyers, couples and young professionals looking for a home to be proud of.
Horsted Park benefits from all of the amenities that both Chatham and the nearby city of Rochester have to offer. Chatham is well served with shopping and leisure attractions, while the ancient cathedral city of Rochester boasts culture and heritage.
From Chatham station, less than two miles from Horsted Park, direct rail services operate into central London in as little as 37 minutes and serve a range of mainline stations including St Pancras International, Victoria and Cannon Street. By road, the M2 is less than a mile away giving rapid access to the M20, M26, M25, the Dartford Crossing and London Airports, as well as the Channel ports and tunnel.
