Kidbrooke Village wins best first-time buy award
Berkeley (Urban Renaissance) has been named Best First-Time Buy for its prestigious regeneration scheme Kidbrooke Village at the London Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2012.
Located next to Blackheath in South East London, Kidbrooke Village is the creation of a new village for London and will create 4,000 new homes and approximately 300,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space.
Once complete, Kidbrooke Village, which is set within landscaped parkland greenery, will also contain all the amenities which form the building blocks of the community including schools, healthcare facilities, a supermarket, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes and a hotel, and 55 hectares of new public open space, including a brand new park, which will link into the surrounding greenery.
The £1bn scheme on 109 hectares is one of the biggest regeneration projects in the country and offers homes to fit a variety of lifestyles, and is ideal for first time buyers who are looking for homes which provide value, quality and location.
Paul Vallone, Managing Director of Berkeley (Urban Renaissance), comments: “Kidbrooke Village offers first time time buyers a prime opportunity to buy and we are delighted that the development has been recognised with such a prestigious accolade.
“Homeowners at Kidbrooke Village benefit from living in a high quality home, with excellent transport links including trains to London Bridge in as little as 15 minutes, surrounding tranquil green spaces and a host of community ammenties.”
Now in their 21st year, the London Evening Standard New Homes Awards rewards the best homes and developments built in the region during the last 12 months. Kidbrooke Village was also Highly Commended in the Best Regeneration Project category.
Kidbrooke Village will include four distinct communities which will integrate seamlessly with each other and the surrounding areas. City Point is the first phase of this scheme and consists of one, two and three bedroom apartments situated beside Sutcliffe Park, an established green lakeside environment.
Harris Lodge presents the last opportunity to buy in City Point and offers the latest exclusive selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments to purchase at Kidbrooke Village.
The forthcoming launch of new phases at Kidbrooke Village will offer larger apartments and market-leading family homes. This will include three and four-storey houses and apartments in the second phase of the development, Blackheath Quarter.
At the heart of the development will be the Kidbrooke Village Centre, which similar to a village square, will act as a focal point for the scheme and will house the majority of the commercial space and community facilities. To ensure the growing community has easy access to amenities, an interim hub will be built this summer hosting a Sainsbury’s Local supermarket and health centre, opposite Kidbrooke train station.
A central spine of quality landscaping connects the four neighbourhood areas, and the new homes are arranged in a variety of clusters, empowering local identity and ownership and creating a genuine community amongst residents.
The London Evening Standard New Homes Awards were presented at a luncheon ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Friday 18th May.
Prices for one bedroom apartments start at Kidbrooke Village from £220,000 and two bedroom apartments from £305,000. Three bedroom mews houses are also available from £430,000. For further sales information, visit kidbrookevillage.co.uk.
