With recent news that house prices could rise by 19 per cent* in Brentwood, now is an ideal time to invest in a new home in the area. The increase is attributed to a report commissioned by Crossrail on its £14 billion project, which is due to link rail services between Shenfield and Maidenhead. With home-owners expected to benefit over the coming years, house-hunters should take advantage by purchasing at Crest Nicholson Eastern’s BASE development, which is an approximate five minutes’ walk from Brentwood Train Station.
As if the location itself wasn’t desirable enough, the new rail links will make a home in Brentwood even more convenient, as travelling from the east to Berkshire will become faster and easier. This makes the one and two-bedroom apartments ideal for first-time buyers or professionals looking to commute west for work and investors looking for properties they can rent easily for maximum rental yields.
Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “The report issued by Crossrail is great news for the house-hunters of Brentwood. Not only will commuting east become easier but, as the prices of properties are set to rise, purchasing at BASE now will be a sound investment.
“The development’s close proximity to Brentwood Station, which provides fast and regular services into London Liverpool Street within 40 minutes, has always proved a key attraction for buyers, whether they are owner-occupiers or investors. Many BASE residents commute to London but choose to buy or rent here as the development offers them easy and efficient access to the Capital but without the London price tag.”
The prices of homes at BASE start from £219,500 for a two-bedroom apartment. Homes feature a spacious and light-filled open-plan kitchen and living room, which leads onto a balcony ideal for al fresco dining. Bedrooms are a good size with the master bedrooms featuring built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms. Apartments at BASE include fully fitted kitchens that feature a comprehensive range of integrated Bosch appliances including a fridge/freezer and washer dryer – easing the burden of starting from scratch and taking the stress out of moving home. Each apartment also benefits from lift access and allocated parking.
Located in the heart of Brentwood, the development is set within an attractive landscaped area just a short walk from the retail and leisure facilities of the town, including a wide range of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as major high street shops.
