The Lord Mayor of Canterbury recently visited Kingsbrook Park in Canterbury to officially unveil Park Crescent, a stunning collection of elegant Georgian style five bedroom homes designed by Berkeley.  Accompanied by the Lady Mayoress Mrs Barbara Todd, the Lord Mayor Councillor Pat Todd was given a tour of the substantial new homes, some of which come with a separate coach house in the back garden!
Following the unveiling, the Lord Mayor said: "I am delighted to have been asked to officially open this unique collection of period style homes and hope residents at Park Crescent will be very happy and build a strong community here."

Prior to the launch, four of the properties at Park Crescent were sold and with 60 families visiting during the launch weekend, Berkeley anticipates further sales in the forthcoming weeks.
Synonymous with the Berkeley brand, the collection of new homes at Park Crescent offer a seductive blend of period styling and modern sophistication.  The elegant row of properties is situated around a central landscaped park overlooking the River Stour.  Each stylish home and coach house provides up to 2,700sqft of space and is designed over four floors offering plenty of freedom for all the family.  Interior quality to compliment the scenic surroundings is assured thanks to spacious rooms, high ceilings, large windows and a high quality internal specification.

Blended with the finest materials and the latest technologies each charming property is synonymous with the high standards associated with the Berkeley brand.  Individually designed kitchens come with a mix of contemporary oak veneer and high gloss finishes, stone worktops, Bosch stainless steel double oven, induction hob and extractor hood plus an integrated microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.  Bathrooms feature white Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, Hansgrohe thermostatically controlled showers and ceramic wall and floor tiling.

In keeping with the grandeur of the new homes at Park Crescent, the majority feature a coach house at the end of the garden, ideal for the au pair, grandparents, nanny etc.  Designed over two floors the coach house is a similar size to a studio apartment in London and similar in layout with an open plan kitchen/living and bedroom area plus a separate shower and cupboard.  The ground floor meanwhile serves as a double garage.                                                                                                   

Kingsbrook Park is a stunning new development that is set within 11 acres of landscaped grounds and is bordered by the River Stour on three sides.  Designed to benefit the whole community, the development will include ecological habitat zones to improve the natural landscape and enhancements to the public riverside walk.  There will also be a new children's play area.

The development is also within close walking distance of Canterbury City centre, with its excellent range of shops, restaurants and historic cultural attractions to visit and enjoy.

For purchasers looking to make the most of their newly found freedom by travelling extensively, the development is situated within a short drive of the M2 which provide links to both the M25 and to Dover and the Channel Tunnel which provides for quick and easy access to France and the Continent.  In addition, the seaside is only 15 minutes away at Whitstable, which is famous for its excellent beaches and seafood.  For those who prefer to travel by train, Canterbury West Station is only a ten minute walk away offering frequent high speed services to London St Pancras.
