New Homes At Century Gate In Beckenham Are A Commuter's Dream
21 Oct 2014

With the choice of four different train stations within a 20-minute walk, award-winning Linden Homes’ Century Gate development in Beckenham is a London commuter’s dream.

Nestling in one of the capital’s sought-after leafy spots in the south-east, the high quality three, four and five-bedroom houses offer swift routes into the centre with the promise of returning to peace and quiet at the end of the day.

Between 14 and 20 minutes’ walk away from the gated collection are the railway stations of New Beckenham, Beckenham Junction, Beckenham Hill and Lower Sydenham.

They are launchpads for direct access to working in the heart of the capital, with journeys of between just 16 and 36 minutes to London Bridge, London Victoria, London St Pancras and Charing Cross.

The closest stations are actually just four of nine serving the area which boasts a profusion of parks and green spaces, including Kent County Cricket Club’s reserve ground, Kelsey Park with its lake, and Beckenham Place Park Golf Club.

The carefully chosen, family-focussed site in Worsley Bridge Road is exclusively open market housing. Handily set for eateries, parks, schools and amenities, it is also a stroll from Beckenham’s bustling high street.

Restaurants, upmarket chains and family-run independent shops are nearby, as well as a six-screen cinema. For the children, there is a selection of good-performing schools.

Stylish and elegantly traditional on the outside, each house comes high specification fixtures and fittings, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

To make the relocation to Century Gate as simple as future residents will find the commute into London, Linden Homes is helping househunters with its Part Exchange and Assisted Move schemes.

Part Exchange simply takes out the hassle of finding a buyer and property chains. After choosing your property, your old home will be valued by local estate agents and an offer made. Once agreed, buyers don’t have to move out until their new Linden home is ready; all they have to do is get packing.

With Assisted Move, Linden Homes offers practical support and guidance to sell, freeing up househunters to make a reservation. For an agreed period, Linden Homes deals with the estate agents and pays all their fees, helping to get the best price for the old home.

Darren Maddox, managing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “The connections and location of Century Gate offer an enviable lifestyle grounded on characterful, high quality, energy efficient houses.

“We know buyers often find their dream property but have their hopes dashed by problems with selling their old home. That’s why we’re offering Part Exchange and Assisted Move – they can make all the difference to making your move a reality.

“There’s been a lot of interest in Century Gate so we’re advising people to act now before the choice becomes more limited. Buying off plan gives you extra options too and with our show home now open, we’re advising people to come down and see the development for themselves and find out how we can help you.”
