Following exceptional sales success over the past ten years, Crest Nicholson has unveiled the latest phase of homes at its multi award-winning development, The Pier at Ingress Park, situated within the heart of the Thames Gateway overlooking the River Thames at Greenhithe in Kent.
Comprising of one, two and three bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom duplexes located on the banks of the River Thames, many of the apartments in Darbyshire and Oarmans Houses benefit from spectacular river views. As a collection of strikingly modern, luxury homes, the angular lines of the apartment building combine with expanses of glazing to form distinctive and eye-catching riverside property.
Internally, the apartments at The Pier are both contemporary and stylish. The living area is thoughtfully planned with large open plan layouts that are flexible enough to accommodate the varying requirements of contemporary lifestyles. The kitchen / living room lends itself to home entertaining, with hosts able to keep their guests entertained whilst showing off their culinary skills. Equally, there are plenty of opportunities to arrange the sofas to create a cosy enclave for cold winter evenings. With floor to ceiling glazing and either a private balcony or terrace, each apartment is flooded with natural light and endowed with far reaching views either across the water or towards Ingress Abbey for the added ‘wow factor’.
Characterised by the high-end finish synonymous with Crest Nicholson, the contemporary white Commodore kitchens come complete with a range of integrated Bosch appliances including oven, hob, extractor hood and fridge / freezer. Bathrooms and en suites are fitted with luxury Roca sanitaryware emulating the trend for hotel bathrooms, with an attention to detail that incorporates smart chrome accessories.
Each apartment benefits from good sized double bedrooms, and in apartments with more than one bedroom, the master suite comes with an en suite and fitted wardrobe. Storage is also plentiful, with cupboards in hallways that are designed to house every day clutter and save interiors from unsightly cleaning products.
However, it’s not the just the luxury apartments and their stunning interiors that contribute to Ingress Park’s unique identity. With the historic and imposing Ingress Abbey appointed as the centrepiece of the development, it offers a reminder of the location’s extensive past. Originally built in 1833, Ingress Abbey has been restored to its former Gothic grandeur, and reinforces the exclusive nature of the development as a whole.
Formerly a brownfield site, Ingress Park has benefitted from an extensive regeneration programme over the past decade, throughout which careful consideration has been given to the use of public spaces. Consequently, Ingress Park residents can now enjoy mature landscaping, tree-lined boulevards, car-free avenues, a riverside promenade and piazza, as well as a heritage walk through centuries-old woodland. Furthermore, residents can enjoy the tranquillity of the mesmerising and ever-changing river views, whilst the grass amphitheatre, situated adjacent to the Abbey, provides a stunning setting for summer picnics.
Such an established infrastructure has fostered a thriving community, and unsurprisingly has cemented Ingress Park as a sought-after residential location in Kent.
Additionally, whilst parking is abundant at the development, Ingress Park benefits from excellent local transport links. The North Kent Fastrack bus service shuttles residents to Bluewater in just ten minutes, enabling them to enjoy the shopping, cafes and restaurants with ease whilst retaining the tranquillity of their riverside location.
The Fastrack service also provides transfers to Ebbsfleet International, which is also just ten minutes’ away. Providing a direct artery into the heart of central London and to the continent, trains from Ebbsfleet Station to Kings Cross St Pancras take just seventeen minutes, while the Eurostar transfers passengers to Paris in a mere two hours. For local train services, Greenhithe Station is just a five minute walk away, and also offers services to London Bridge in 45 minutes and Charing Cross in 50 minutes.
Crest Nicholson is delighted to offer an array of initiatives to help house purchasers secure their dream home at Ingress Park. Help to Buy is available across all properties, as is NewBuy, and for buyers deterred from moving due to fees, Crest Nicholson can pay stamp duty costs or provide a mortgage subsidy for residents’ first year in their property.
Prices at The Pier start from £165,000 for a one bedroom apartment or £132,000 with Help to Buy. For further information please contact Crest Nicholson on 01959 564 282 or visit www.crestnicholson.com
