The new Crossrail will provide excellent transport links into London greatly reducing the commute time.
Brentwood, Essex (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2013
Londoners spend on average, 75 minutes commuting each day so the new Crossrail will appeal to those looking to live a suburban lifestyle coupled with an easy commute into central London.
Those looking to invest in a property in Brentwood to benefit from the new Crossrail line should consider The Galleries by City & Country, which is located just under a mile from Brentwood Station, making it ideal for couples or professionals looking for good transport links.
Helen Moore, Managing Director of City & Country commented: “The new Crossrail will provide excellent transport links into London greatly reducing the commute time’. Brentwood station is also undergoing refurbishment which is an additional benefit to the residents living at The Galleries, a number of whom regularly travel into London for work or pleasure.
“We have received an increase in enquiries from those looking to buy now in order to benefit from the long term capital growth potential and we expect this number to rise even further as people see the works unfold.”
Since its launch in 2006, The Galleries has proved extremely popular, with over half of the development now sold. Helen Moore added: “The Galleries has proved popular to a wide range of buyers from young professionals, couples and investors to first time buyers and downsizers and this has contributed to its sales success. Our focus is to provide high quality homes which complement the existing building. Our expert team creates homes which offer luxury living combined with history and heritage, a strong appeal for purchasers who want something different when buying a new home.”
The Grade II listed former Victorian mental asylum site has been sensitively restored and converted into an impressive selection of luxury apartments, as well as two brand new buildings, Nightingale Court and Albert Court, which have been beautifully designed in keeping with the original buildings.
The apartments at Nightingale Court are spacious one and two-bedroom apartments which – built as a new property in a style reflecting the period architecture of the original buildings – offer a complementary blend of contemporary interior décor, modern specifications such as double glazed windows and traditional-style exteriors.
Comprising of 22 stunning brand new two bedroom apartments, Albert Court is built in a style reflecting the period architecture of the original buildings. Fifteen of the apartments have lift access which is being offered for the first time at The Galleries, providing an additional benefit, especially to trade down purchasers thinking about the long term. All of the apartments offer far reaching views of the historic setting and surrounding countryside providing a unique setting in which to live.
City & Country is almost unique in being able to offer both brand new and recently converted historic apartments backed by the Government’s new Help to Buy scheme, which provides a real and valuable incentive to help homebuyers money go further whilst only requiring a 5% deposit. Help to Buy is made up of two schemes – “equity loan” where the Government will loan up to 20 per cent of the value of new build home and “mortgage guarantee” where lenders will be incentivised to make more mortgages available for people with small deposits. Buyers simply need a minimum five per cent deposit to purchase the property.
Each home at The Galleries offers spacious open plan living with a fully inclusive specification, including high quality finishes such as oak flooring, 100 per cent wool carpets and chrome fixtures and fittings. The bespoke high gloss kitchens are fully equipped with integrated appliances and the luxurious bathrooms feature contemporary white Vitra sanitaryware and Hansgrohe chrome fittings. Residents can also enjoy the use of their own parking space and access to the beautiful courtyard gardens which are kept in pristine condition by the management company.
Located on the edge of the town, The Galleries provides a quiet oasis whilst being close to the diverse selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops on the high street. Residents can enjoy the vast outdoor space offered by Thorndon Forest and Weald Country Park, each less than two miles away, and Brentwood train station is only a short walk from the development, providing a direct service into London Liverpool Street of just over half an hour.
Apartments at The Galleries are ready for occupation, and start at £255,000 and go up to £950,000. The on-site sales suite is open daily between 10am and 5pm. For further information, contact City & Country on telephone: 01277 202122 or visit: http://www.the-galleries.net.
