According to a recent report from Lloyds Bank, those that commute for just an hour into London can save £450,000 on their home*. City professionals looking for more value for money, without compromising on an easy commute, should look no further than award-winning developer, Countryside’s Kings Park development.

Harold Wood is the Perfect Investment for Commuters

Based in Harold Wood, Essex, the development is less than a two minute walk from Harold Wood tube station, which takes residents in to London in just 35 minutes.

Kings Park offers an exclusive collection of three and four bedroom townhouses and contemporary apartments in a beautiful parkland setting, just a short walk from Harold Wood station which will be on Crossrail’s Elizabeth Line as of 2019. The newest phase at Kings Park offers new three and four bedroom house designs along with the Windsor and Chatsworth Mews apartments, is known as Crown Mews. The Elizabeth Line will decrease the journey time from Harold Wood into Central London by up to 15 minutes. Other benefits will includeincreasing central London rail capacity by 10 per cent as well as supporting regeneration and cutting journey times across the city**, meaning now is the perfect time to invest.

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “Thanks to the close proximity of Harold Wood Station, residents will not only benefit from great travel connections, but also the rewards that come with the improvements to the rail services. Travel connections are a major selling point for Kings Park and now residents have the opportunity to purchase a property before the ‘Crossrail effect’ is in full swing. With plenty of homes suitable for a range of buyers, Kings Park is the ideal development for anyone looking to find their dream home as well as make a fantastic investment.”

An example of the Crown Mews properties available at Kings Park is The Rosenburg four bedroom townhouse. The family home offers a spacious open plan kitchen/dining/family area on the ground floor, while the first floor plays host to the large living room, the guest bedroom, bathroom and the master bedroom. Boasting fitted wardrobes and a luxury en suite bathroom, the master bedroom also benefits from a feature window, which offers beautiful views of the development’s landscaped gardens. Two further double bedrooms and an additional bathroom can be found on the second floor.

The final homes at Kings Park are now selling which include three and four bedroom homes in the Mews courtyards, perfectly positioned for residents to enjoy the scenic, green setting whilst living in Oyster Card zone 6. The development is surrounded by a plethora of leafy open spaces and Essex countryside including Harold Wood Park, Bedfords Park and Weald Country Park.

In the local area there are a great range of amenities including a Post Office, supermarket, travel agent, several hairdressers, a bakery and a restaurant. The road links are superb with the A127 and A12 just a few minutes from Kings Park, both with access to the M25 for travel afield.
