Forest Hill Central, a brand new development by Berkeley Homes (South East London), is set to revitalise the SE23 property market. It has been some time since Forest Hill has benefited from a collection of brand new homes and with the East London Line extension closer to completion, purchasers are expected to snap up Berkeley's quality product. Forest Hill Central will comprise 46 private one, two and three-bedroom apartments and 25 shared equity properties, previewing from Thursday 25th October 2007.
Located on the corner of Perry Vale and Hindsley's Place, Forest Hill Central blends brick, white render and glass balconies to create a refreshingly contemporary antidote to the period properties that surround the development. It will offer homebuyers slick architectural style, low maintenance living and superb specification. The development will also feature almost 2,900 sq ft of commercial space.
Forest Hill is proving popular with purchasers due to its forthcoming transport enhancements. There is already an efficient over ground service from Forest Hill Station with only four stops (average journey time is 15 minutes) to London Bridge, and the East London Line project is set to link Forest Hill with Crystal Palace, West Croydon and Dalston, with the station being serviced by 16 trains an hour. This means commuters will be able to reach Canary Wharf, Whitechapel and the Olympic Park with greater ease. All of the apartments offer flexible living, created to appeal to first-time buyers, professionals moving up the property ladder and downsizers alike.
Individually designed contemporary kitchens by Alno are complemented by Bosch appliances including an electric oven, ceramic hob and integrated fridge/freezer. Bathrooms and ensuites feature white sanitaryware, chrome fixtures and fittings, ceramic wall tiling and Karndean floor tiles to offer a calming retreat. Purchasers will have the opportunity to upgrade the kitchen and bathroom/shower room specification to include handle-free white glass doors, grey composite stone worktops and splashbacks, ceramic floor tiling and downlighters in the kitchens, along with double-ended baths, Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and ceramic floor tiling in the bathrooms.
No detail has been overlooked, and this includes the development's environmental credentials. Solar panels on the roof, rainwater collection tanks and under-sink recycling compartments ensure that Berkeley Homes (South East London) is fulfilling its commitment to the environment and creating a truly sustainable development. Rebecca Littler, Head of Sales & Marketing at Berkeley Homes (South East London) Ltd commented: "Forest Hill Central forms a key part of the regeneration of the area. It is a striking development offering distinctive, well-constructed value for money homes.
