Ten out of 12 units were reserved on the first day of the launch of the first phase of Woodhams Apartments in Bromley, built by Hambridge Homes. The sales account for 35% of the entire scheme which is part of a regeneration of Bromley.
James Overton, Managing Director of Hambridge Homes, says: “We aim to cater for first time buyers and young professionals, and Woodhams Apartments is an excellent example of this. Its location is ideal for people who want easy access into the City, and the price point – with homes starting at £299,000 – is perfect those trying to get onto the property ladder in the capital. We’re delighted with the success of the launch and look forward to buyers moving in and calling it home.”
First refusal of the apartments was given to Help to Buy purchasers, with nine of the ten reserved units sold using the scheme. Hambridge Homes prioritises first time buyers and those using Help to Buy as a way of encouraging home ownership, with homes at an accessible price.
Following the success of phase one, phase two with another 12 apartments will be released soon.
According to Hambrige prices in Bromley are set to soar thanks to a £90 million regeneration project that will deliver St Mark’s Square, a new landscaped plaza and 25,000 sq ft of cafés and restaurants, a cinema, shops and an underground car park, next year.
Bromley is the biggest of the London boroughs and a 15-minute journey away from Central London but is also close to the lush countryside of Kent and East Sussex.
Woodhams Apartments is divided into three blocks with the entire ground floor occupied by a Co-op food store.
There are a range of layouts at the development, allowing buyers to choose from a variety of floor plans. All of the apartments feature spacious balconies and dual aspect living, ranging from 498 sq ft to 855 sq ft. Kitchens are equipped with German Pronorm white gloss units and Corian worktops with glass splashbacks, SMEG appliances and under-cupboard pelmet lighting to the wall units. Bathrooms feature white sanitaryware by Duravit, soft-close toilet seats, taps and fittings by Vado and Corian bath panels. Other specifications include engineered wood flooring in the apartments’ kitchens/living rooms and hallways, polished chrome ironmongery and Sky TV points in all rooms.
