The much anticipated opening of London’s newest train service, The Elizabeth Line, has seen average property values soaring for those living along the route since the project began. Savvy home seekers from across London are now looking to developments near stations benefitting from the new train line, such as Countryside’s Kings Park in Harold Wood,

The ‘Lizzie Line’ Effect Broadens Appeal of Kings Park for Bond Street Buyers


where properties have seen an increase of just under* 44% since Crossrail work started in 2009, outperforming the average home in England and with lots more price growth to come**.

Kings Park offers an exclusive collection of luxury family houses and contemporary apartments in a beautiful parkland setting but within walking distance of Harold Wood station which is set to benefit from Crossrail from 2019.  The development is attracting interest not only from those working in the City and Canary Wharf but a growing number of professionals working in Bond Street and surrounding areas.

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “We are seeing a surge of interest from not only City and Canary Wharf professionals but an increasing number from those working in the West End who want the best of both worlds. They are attracted by the possibility of living in a stylish home within a peaceful green oasis away from the city which, once Crossrail is complete, will offer commuters journey times of just 42 minutes into Bond Street.”

A wide selection of the homes at Kings Park offer contemporary open plan living with full height glazing to key rooms, allowing light to flood in. Stylish kitchens offer the finest quality integrated appliances whilst bathrooms and ensuites boast white sanitaryware with chrome accessories and spacious master bedrooms include fitted wardrobes.  The apartments are set within a contemporary building.

Aside from the excellent rail connections, Harold Wood is also on two London bus routes, both of which accept Oyster and link residents to surrounding towns such as Hornchuch for the District Line and Romford for a superb range of shopping facilities. Road links are also convenient with the A127 and A12 just a few minutes from Kings Park, both with access to the M25 for onward travel.

The area boasts a wide range of amenities including a Post Office, supermarket, travel agent, several hairdressers, a bakery and a restaurant. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the abundance of countryside, woodland and parks including Harold Wood Park, which offers not only woodland and open areas but also a range of sports facilities.

Currently available are two bedroom apartments from £335,000 and the last remaining houses: the three bedroom houses start from £545,000 as well as a limited number of three bedroom Überhaus which start from £480,000. Countryside are offering to pay for Stamp Duty on the four bedroom homes from £675,000. A selection of properties at Kings Park are available with Help to Buy.
