Only the greenest living at Kings Park, Harold Wood

25th July 2016 Print
Kings Park

The green features offered at Countryside’s Kings Park development in Harold Wood, Essex, could help dramatically reduce energy bills for home buyers. High quality materials used in construction, better insulation and efficient heating systems are just a handful of reasons why owners of new build properties could save up to £1,400 a year on utility bills, compared to when living in a Victorian equivalent .

Andrew Loveday, Sales and Marketing Director at Countryside comments: “We have seen an increase in popularity for homes that are kinder to the environment over the past decade or so. Homes that are environmentally friendly are on the rise due to home buyers wanting to save money and have a positive impact on the environment. Green living is not just about energy efficiency, but good architectural design. By ensuring our designs have well planned interiors and include attractive green surroundings, we aim to create welcoming and harmonious living environments that you’ll be proud to call home for years to come.”

An example of the green homes available at Kings Park is the four bedroom Rosenberg house design. The Rosenberg is one of 52 contemporary houses that collectively, with the Windsor and Chatsworth Mews apartments, Arundel houses and Überhauses, form Crown Mews. The family home offers a spacious open plan kitchen/dining/family area on the ground floor which includes eco-friendly features such as ‘A’ rated kitchen appliances and an integrated recycling bin.

The second floor plays host to the large living room, the guest bedroom, bathroom and the master bedroom. Boasting fitted wardrobes and a luxury en suite bathroom, the master bedroom also benefits from a feature window, which offers plenty of light and beautiful views of the development’s landscaped gardens.

Two further double bedrooms and an additional bathroom with a dual flush toilet can be found on the third floor. The home uses low energy light fittings and a home office space is provided.

Where possible renewable, sustainable or recyclable sources have been used in the construction of the houses at Kings Park, and materials have also been sourced locally where available.

As well as a host of environmentally friendly features within the home, Kings Park also features facilities that encourage environmentally-friendly travel. The development is within a two minute walk from Harold Wood station, which currently has a journey time of just 35 minutes to central London, though this is set to decrease by up to 15 minutes when Crossrail’s Elizabeth Line launches in 2017. Each of the properties also comprise cycle storage to encourage less traveling by car, particularly for those that work closer to home.

The Crown Mews properties at Kings Park are perfectly positioned, allowing residents to enjoy the scenic, green setting whilst living in Oyster Card zone 6. The development is surrounded by a plethora of leafy open spaces and Essex countryside including Harold Wood Park, Bedfords Park and Weald Country Park.

In the local area there are a great range of amenities including a Post Office, supermarket, travel agent, several hairdressers, a bakery and a restaurant. The road links are superb with the A127 and A12 just a few minutes from Kings Park, both with access to the M25 for travel afield.

The Rosenberg and The Überhaus are the last remaining house designs at Crown Mews. The three bedroom Überhaus is currently on the market for £449,995 and is available to purchase with Help to Buy. Prices for the four bedroom Rosenberg start from £639,995. Both are available with stamp duty paid and a range of other incentives. For more information, visit
