London Home Show Countdown: London Square
Guest Blog: London Square
London Square has a number of schemes that are ideal for both first-time buyers working in the capital, and those with children who are looking to move further out into a well-situated family home.
For first-time buyers who are keen to retain the benefits of city life, London Square Staines-upon-Thames is a great option. The homes are a mixture of studio apartments and one, two, and three bedroom apartments, starting from £359,950, with on-site gym facilities and a new courtyard garden. Alongside these on-site amenities, nearby transport links are ideal for commuters – the local station is less than five minutes-walk away providing direct train services to London Waterloo taking approximately 35 minutes, as well as Heathrow being a short bus ride away. However, it’s not just a commuter town; Staines-upon-Thames is a vibrant area, with plenty of local shops, cafes, and a popular local market to explore at the weekends, along with a beautiful stretch of the Thames.
If you’re looking to move into a new home situated in a beautiful rural area, then London Square Tadworth Gardens, situated close to the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will be the perfect option. There is a real mixture of home sizes, with two bedroom apartments starting from £399,950 and three bedroom houses from £579,950. The increased living space, along with attractive grounds and gardens provide a calm retreat away from the city. However, with London Waterloo located only 35 minutes from Epsom station, and London Bridge 50 minutes away from Tadworth station, access to central London is quick and convenient for workers.
Set within carefully landscaped grounds, London Square Orpington offers modern, desirable apartments and beautifully designed homes. Despite its tranquil surroundings, London Square Orpington is ideally situated for quick access to the city, with trains to London Bridge taking only 22 minutes. Orpington is an ideal place to raise a family, having previously been rated as one of the very best area in the UK for children to get an education, with highly regarded state and selective schools surrounding the development, as well as desirable green spaces. With stylish designs, a range of house types to choose from and the calibre of local amenities, London Square Orpington is the perfect place for families to escape the hustle and bustle of central London.
London Square’s mix of well-designed apartments and spacious family homes are perfect for those looking to get onto the housing ladder in vibrant, desirable and conveniently located neighbourhoods. With Help to Buy across all these developments, it is an ideal time for first time buyers to start settling down.
