Orpington proves a capital choice for investors

4th August 2016

Berkeley, Escape the city

Property in prime London suburbs has seen a 16.6% growth in value over the last five years, and a 3.2% annual growth from 2015 to 2016, according to Savills[1]. Orpington, home to Brunswick Square by Berkeley Homes is located within the prime suburban district outside the capital, where the average property price has risen by 7.81% over the last year, according to Zoopla[2]. The stunning new development comprises one and two bedroom apartments, offering a balcony, winter garden or terrace and is ideal for those looking to reap the financial rewards of a prime suburban location.

The town of Orpington is also going through an impressive regeneration, and now offers several fantastic new facilities including a seven-screen Odeon cinema and popular eateries. Further peak time train services will also be increased to up to nine trains per hour in August, providing residents with an even faster commute into the capital from Orpington station, just a 13 minute walk away from home[3].

Karrina Oki, Sales & Marketing Director of Berkeley Homes, comments: "As more homebuyers move out of London into the surrounding suburbs, investors are now taking advantage of the property growth in these areas due to the high demand. The one and two bedroom apartments at Brunswick Square are an ideal option for investors looking for a contemporary home in a lucrative area. Orpington is in a brilliant location for transport connections and amenities, while further facilities will be added as the regeneration program progresses, making the thriving town an even more desirable location. The development so far has seen large amounts of interest from investors and 70% of the homes are now sold, therefore we'd encourage investors interested in Brunswick Square to act quickly to avoid missing out."

The spacious open-plan living rooms grant access to stunning private balconies and terraces. These private exterior spaces are an ideal spot for residents to soak up the sun, while the winter gardens, also offered with some apartments, provide a quiet retreat for 'green figured' guests. Private cycle storage is also located on site, offering residents the opportunity to be as 'green' as the development.

The town of Orpington is going through an impressive regeneration, and now offers an exciting new range of retail, dining and leisure facilities, including a 24hr Pure Gym and seven-screen Odeon cinema, conveniently located on the doorstep of Brunswick Square. For more extensive retail and leisure options, Bluewater shopping centre is also only just a 20 minutes' drive away.

Residents can also benefit from London's Zone 6 travel connections, allowing the use of Oyster Card to travel into and around the capital. Orpington station is just a three minute drive away and provides commuters with fast and frequent trains to London Bridge, Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Victoria. The area is also served by a comprehensive bus service, and there is easy access to London's M25 orbital motorway.

Prices start at £340,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £426,000 for a two bedroom apartment. For further information on Brunswick Square please call 01689 669066 or visit: http://www.berkeleygroup.co.uk/new-homes/london/orpington/brunswick-square
