This month (29th April), the final collection of apartments launches at Brunswick Square, Berkeley Homes' prestigious development in the heart of Orpington's town centre, which is currently undergoing an exciting rejuvenation. Since launching in October 2015, the development has seen strong demand from buyers, with over 70% of the scheme already sold. The new release of one and two-bedroom apartments represent the last opportunity to invest in the revitalised Zone 6 location, just 18 minutes from London Bridge by train.
The centrepiece of Orpington's transformation
With the town centre's impressive regeneration well underway, Orpington has become a well-established, sought-after location rivalling neighbouring destinations such as Bromley. The bustling town is increasingly in demand with both owner-occupiers looking for good value and investors looking to capitalise on the area's growing popularity; average house prices in Orpington have seen a 20 per cent increase in the last three years, according to Rightmove.
Alongside this new residential offering, Brunswick Square adds to the local amenities with a ground floor NHS Health and Wellbeing Centre, a new café and retail space. The revitalised town centre is further enhanced by a thoughtfully-designed public realm and vibrant selection of newly invigorated shop frontages, including an Odeon Cinema, restaurant, hotel, library, swimming pool and gym, all contributing to the dynamic lifestyle offering for local residents.
Taking its name from its heritage as a former police station and set within a new landscaped square, Brunswick Square comprises of 83 contemporary apartments, each of which feature the superior finish that is synonymous with Berkeley Homes. Each apartment incorporates an individually designed kitchen and generous open-plan living space, alongside valuable outside space in the form of a balcony, terrace or winter garden. Many apartments also offer the added benefit of private parking.
City and country life
With an ideal location on the borders of the Kentish countryside, yet within London's fare Zone 6, Brunswick Square has also proven popular with downsizers looking for a convenient town-centre home, as well as with young professionals moving out of the capital and those looking for the best of both town and country.
Just a 15-minute walk to Orpington railway station, residents of Brunswick Square also benefit from quick and easy access to the capital, with trains to London Bridge taking less than 20 minutes, and 25 minutes to London Charing Cross. Alongside the excellent transport links, properties also lie close to several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including The Kent Downs and the High Weald.
Karrina Oki, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Homes comments: "As we near the completion of the rejuvenated town centre, it is a particularly exciting time for Orpington. The final collection of apartments at Brunswick Square offers buyers the chance to live in the heart of the town, or a unique investment opportunity.
