Real Life Case Study : COMMUTER HUB SEES AFFORDABLE HOUSING AVAILABILITY WITHIN A SHOTGUN MARKET


Recently named one of the top five hotspots for the fastest-selling properties in the UK, homes in Dartford typically take just 16 days to sell1. This incredibly quick turnover rate not only limits opportunities to purchase within Dartford, but makes finding an affordable home in this area even harder.

Following unprecedented demand for its Phoenix Quarter development last October, Hyde New Homes is soon to launch a collection of two bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom houses through Shared Ownership in the historic market town of Dartford, at its Darent Place development. The modern development will comprise 41 homes that are designed for both couples and families, and will provide an affordable option within this popular area - with prices starting at £78,000 based on a 40% share of a full market value of £195,000.

Situated just a 15 minute walk from Dartford train station, and given the area's new status as an Oyster Card zone, working professionals will be able to commute easily into central London, reaching London Bridge in less than 45 minutes. Additionally, the renowned Ebbsfleet International offers Eurostar links to St Pancras International. Darent Place is positioned close to the Dartford Tunnel and the M25, as well as giving road users easy access to the A2 and M2.

Minutes from the River Darent and on the borders of the Kent countryside, the new development forms part of the larger regeneration plans for the Thames Gateway. The Thames Gateway is Europe's largest regeneration project, stretching 40 miles along the Thames estuary from Canary Wharf in London to Southend in Essex and Sittingbourne in Kent to include a substantial amount of new housing in the South East.

Dartford hosts a selection of scenic open spaces, including the Central Park and Brooksland Lake reservoir. The retail offering is second to none with The Orchard Shopping Centre a 10 minute walk away and Bluewater just 4.5 miles from the development with high street and designer brands. A range of eateries, including Greek, Indian, Chinese and Thai cuisine are pepper potted along the local high street. Culture vultures can also enjoy West End musicals, comedians, bands, and more at one of the two local theatres, The Orchard Theatre and Mick Jagger centre.

Prices for a 2 bedroom apartment at Darent Place start at £78,000 based on a 40% share of a full market value of £195,000. To find out more or to register your interest in one of the new homes, please visit hydenewhomes.co.uk or call 0345 606 1221.
