Flexible living in Sevenoaks
It's one of the most sought-after commutable towns and at the same time these apartments are perfectly designed for WFH living. Read on for the best of both worlds...
FIND YOUR SPACE
It’s no secret that Work From Home (WFH) in some shape or form – whether it’s for one or five days a week – is here to stay.
So having a specific space to work from home has become a very sought after feature for anyone property searching. And yet, for many who still want the option to commute into London when required, being near a fast train route into the big smoke is also essential.
That’s why it’s no surprise that Sevenoaks regularly tops polls for the most popular location for Londoners to move to or one the Best Places to Live 2021 (as voted by you). So is it any wonder some swanky new developments are going on in town, including Quinton Court.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Luxury apartments are not the sole preserve of urban living. At Quinton Court you get the best of both worlds – this is city living meets country living at its best. There are two bedroom apartments still available – although they are sure to be snapped up soon (prices start from £595,000).
In Sevenoaks you’re less than half an hour from London, but you’ve also got gorgeous Knole Park with its wild deer herd right in the town itself. Here, you’re surrounded by idyllic countryside and super close to the North Downs with plenty of open space for cycling, walking or just breathing in the fresh country air.
WORK FROM HOME FRIENDLY
Almost half of London companies, whose staff can feasibly work from home, expect them to continue to do so, for at least part of the week, even after the pandemic finishes, according to a poll of 520 business leaders by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Most businesses agree – hybrid models of working, in which staff split their time between the office and home, are here to stay in the long-term.
So there’s an obvious knock on effect to the property market – in particular people want flexible spaces that can double up as quiet work corners as and when needed. Linked to this is also the need for fast and reliable wi-fi as never before!
Well Quinton Court not only boasts specifically designed work office space, but also superfast fibre broadband connectivity; allowing you to work from home at your convenience.
SENSE OF COMMUNITY
A town with a strong community spirit – you can be well-connected here in every sense. There’s drama groups, sporting clubs and, of course, excellent schools.
And, because apartment living means you don’t have to spend weekends sorting odd jobs or doing house maintenance you’ll free up more leisure time. With lots of stuff going on locally throughout the year – like the Sevenoaks Literary Festival or the new Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival – there’s something for everyone to get involved in.
ACCESS TO SHOPS
The development is situated in Sevenoaks town centre, where you’ll find plenty of independent restaurants like super chic restaurant and bar Hive, turkish eatery Hattusa, sushi restaurant Kazoku or smoked meat specialists Brisket and Barrel. For café culture you’ll love Life on High the Muddy Awards 2021 winner for Best Café in Kent. Plus there’s the odd boutique, interior shops plus hair and beauty salons. Oh and don’t forget the award-winning Sevenoaks Bookshop and The Stag community arts centre for theatre and cinema.
There are also several brilliant family days out right on your doorstep, such as Riverhill Himalayan Gardens and Hever Castle or National Trust destinations like Knole Park, Ightham Mote and Emmetts Garden.
Whether it’s for work, or if you fancy a trip to the big smoke, Central London is just a short distance away.
At Quinton Court, you’re just six minutes walk to Sevenoaks station, where there’s fast and frequent services to London Charing Cross (via London Bridge and Waterloo East) and Cannon Street in just 22 minutes. So commuter catnip.
And with the newly improved A21 linking towards London and the M25 to the north and Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and the coast to the south you couldn’t be more perfectly positioned. You’ve also got easy access to both Gatwick and Heathrow airport.
SECURITY & PARKING
As you can imagine parking is premium in the centre of this highly sought after location.
For those with cars, Berkeley has created a secure, private, underground car park spread over two levels. Every apartment at Quinton Court benefits from an allocated parking space.
Cycle spaces and electric charging points are also available. For the residents’ convenience, lift access is available on every floor and parking level.
You are truly spoilt for choice here. Kent has a brilliant selection of Grammar, Independent and State schools.
Sevenoaks has it’s own annexe of the Weald of Kent Girls Grammar School and the new annexe for Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys is opening in September 2021.
Plus there’s also bus and train links to the other (boy or girl) grammars in the area andbrilliant independent Prep and Senior schools in the town itself too – for a full rundown on schools check out the Muddy Best Schools Guide here.
GORGEOUS GARDENS, WITHOUT THE WORK
With landscaped communal gardens at Quinton Court you’ll have the benefits of outside space, but there’s not a rose will you have to prune, nor a weed will you have to pluck. Plus there’s a stunning water feature, making the communal courtyard perfect for relaxation.
IT’S ALL NEW
Living in a brand new home comes with many benefits, not least the fact that it won’t require the same level of maintenance as an older property. A brand new home offers the opportunity to have some say over the fixtures and fittings.
Quinton Court is built to a high specification, with incredible attention to detail – spacious built-in wardrobes, clever space-saving bathroom storage, integrated waste separation recycling bins, thermostatic shower controls and a good-sized utility cupboard to house the washing machine and dryer. And it comes with a 10 year NHBC warranty.
Quinton Court has been designed to enable sustainable living, with LED lighting, PV panels, as well as electric car charging points and cycle storage facilities in place. All of the apartments benefit from aerating taps and showers as well as dual flush WC cisterns.
