Savills, in association with Berkeley Group, is hosting an exclusive event at the company's West End headquarters at 33 Margaret Street, London W1G on Wednesday 17th October, where guests can discover the many lifestyle benefits of moving to Tunbridge Wells.
Tom Bryant, head of residential development sales in the south east for Savills, says, "Tunbridge Wells in West Kent, being within easy reach of London by rail and the motorway network, is becoming increasingly popular with commuters seeking a better quality of life outside the capital. The town, which was recently named as runner up in a poll of the top ten family zones to live in London and the home counties by The Evening Standard, benefits from a wealth of excellent private and state education, which has led to many families moving out of London to live within the catchment areas of its highly rated grammar schools and popular faith schools.
"Over 60% of buyers who have purchased properties in Tunbridge Wells from Savills cited London as their place of employment, with that figure rising to 70% for properties purchased for over £1 million."
The event will showcase a new Berkeley development, Royal Wells Park, situated in the heart of Tunbridge Wells, offering a mix of one, two, and three bedroom apartments and three, four and five bedroom houses, with prices starting at £300,000 for apartments and £600,000 for houses.
Tom added, "Attendees at the Savills event, which is from 5pm to 8pm on the 17th October, will get the opportunity to discover just what Tunbridge Wells and the Royal Wells Park development can offer. With a wealth of bars, restaurants, entertainment and high end shopping on the doorstep, including The Ivy and Thackerays, Tunbridge Wells is an exceptional place to live - and with a journey time to London Bridge from only 43 minutes by train, it offers an easy commute and a superb quality of life for the whole family."
The event will also see the launch of the latest Savills research on the Tunbridge Wells property market, offering insights for relocaters and investors on the current financial performance and outlook, and how the south east is expected to be a more attractive proposition for adding value to property than London over the next five years.
Karina Oki, sales and marketing director, Berkeley Homes Eastern Counties, added: "We look forward to welcoming guests to our forthcoming event where we will showcase Royal Wells Park and its boutique collection of homes. Each is designed and finished to a superior specification and offers an exceptional level of quality, elegance and style. Royal Wells Park is set within a prestigious new neighbourhood in the heart of desirable and established Tunbridge Wells offering a plentiful array of amenities and longstanding legacy of culture and heritage."
The event on 17th October is open to anyone who is interested in finding out more about living in, or investing in property in Tunbridge Wells. For more information and to secure your place at the free event, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01892886759
