Sevenoaks property: Luxury, lifestyle and location
8 reasons to love luxury apartment living... in the heart of Sevenoaks but moments from the Kent countryside. It's the best of all worlds - sneak a peak!
Sevenoaks regularly tops polls for the most popular location for Londoners to move to (in 2020) or one the Best Places to Live 2020 (as voted by you). So is it any wonder some swanky new developments are going on in town, including Quinton Court.
We thought you’d like to be first in-the-know, so here’s a sneak peak at these brand new properties and 8 reasons why we think you’ll love them.
You get the 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.
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.
There’s a 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, cafés and 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 and 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 and brilliant independent Prep and Senior schools in the town itself too – for a full rundown on schools check out the Muddy Best Schools Guide here.
Enjoy the 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.
