New Home Trends Put On Show At Century Gate
25 Sep 2015

A touch of “Instagram cool” has been brought to the new show home at Century Gate in popular Beckenham where only two properties remain to be snapped up.

The exclusive gated development of family houses from award-winning Linden Homes has proved a hit with the market, and the last ones won’t be available for long once visitors see the premier choice on offer.

The show home is in The Bishopsbourne style ranging across 1,665 square feet (154.7 square metres). Upstairs, two of the four bedrooms are en suite, joined by a family bathroom.

Downstairs a spacious living room opens up through cantilevered doors into the turfed back garden. A front bay window floods light into the open plan, fully fitted kitchen-diner. A cloakroom and integral garage complete the ground floor.

Carrie Edwards, from Claude Hooper Interiors which designed the show home, said: “We gave the house a theme and style that had a distinctive, smart London look – something that people could both recognise and aspire too.

“We decided to use a mix of metallics which are a hot theme at the moment. We used metallic colours, textures and finishes to create a contemporary, luxurious and aspirational home.”

A touch of “Instagram cool” has been brought to bedroom three; imagined as a children’s bedroom for twin teenage girls. Bedroom four is a study room with daybed to suggest a double use as professional home office and guest room.

Carrie added: “The lounge features an oversized, low, modern sofa designed with family living in mind. The master bedroom boasts a large, modern four-poster bed and furniture that creates a boutique hotel style bedroom.”

The two detached properties remaining at Century Gate are The Bishopsbourne style and the five-bedroom Chislehurst. Stylish and elegantly traditional, both houses come with high specification fixtures and fittings, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

Dylan May, land, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “Beckenham is a fantastic location that enjoys a true village-like feel. Century Gate’s new show home gives a great sense of how quality and position can deliver a fantastic lifestyle.

“We’ve sold very fast at Century Gate already and, with the new show home piquing a fresh surge of interest, we’re expecting the last homes to go quickly. Househunters should get in touch now and come and visit to avoid missing out.”

Blessed by good connections and a family-friendly calm, Century Gate nestles behind a reassuring gated entrance in a leafy spot next to playing fields where Kent County Cricket Club plays in the summer.

Handily set for eateries, parks, schools and amenities, the homes are a stroll from Beckenham’s bustling high street. Between 14 and 20 minutes’ walk away are the railway stations of New Beckenham, Beckenham Junction, Beckenham Hill and Lower Sydenham.
