Berkeley Homes is presenting buyers with further opportunities to own a home in highly sought-after Kidbrooke Village with the launch of Merlin Court. The latest release within Blackheath Quarter will provide 114 new private homes in a building overlooking the beautifully landscaped Cator Park. Merlin Court comprises contemporary, individually designed one, two and three bedroom apartments with high-specification, luxurious interiors and views of luscious parkland. All homes come with spacious balconies, terrace areas or garden.
Within this collection, a select number of three bedroom apartments will feature an additional room, ideal for use as a home office, allowing owners to benefit from flexible working. Those that wish to work from home will also have access to private working spaces in a business suite located in the Blackheath Quarter resident Clubhouse. The unique suite, complete with boardroom, affords Blackheath Quarter residents with the opportunity and freedom of working from home without the distractions of creature comforts - perfect for those with young families who want to spend less time commuting and more time at home.
Blackheath Quarter Clubhouse is an excellent space which combines work and play. As well as having access to executive business facilities, residents have the opportunity to relax by the pool, work out in the gym or watch a film with the family in the private cinema room.
John Anderson, Chairman of Berkeley Homes (East Thames), comments: "With contemporary, luxurious designs as Berkeley standard and the space for a home office in some apartments, these spacious apartments are perfectly equipped for the demands of modern family life. Having exclusive access to Blackheath Quarter's Clubhouse facilities, residents at Merlin Court can enjoy a flexible work life balance."
However, if residents need to commute into central London, Kidbrooke railway station runs regular overland services into London Bridge in just 15 minutes and London Victoria in less than 30 minutes* Merlin Court residents will also find themselves surrounded by green open space; in total, the village has 136 acres of open space, made up from the established Sutcliffe Park nature reserve, the newly created Cator Park, and numerous green pathways between the buildings.
Cator Park will offer residents a number of outdoor recreational activities all year round as well as providing an idyllic setting for summer picnics with water features that run into a green river that flows through the village.
Blackheath Quarter is one of four neighbourhoods which make up the Kidbrooke Village community, along with Meridian Gate, Kidbrooke Village Centre and City Point - all arranged around parkland and open space. The 270-acre site, a £1 billion regeneration scheme, is considered one of Europe's most ambitious housing projects and second only in the UK to the Olympic Village. The former government body Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) has described Kidbrooke Village as "an exemplar for sustainable suburbs with social and environmental sustainability at its heart". When complete, Kidbrooke Village will provide more than 4,000 new homes, and a central square lined with shops and eateries.
Whilst Kidbrooke Village already boasts a number of amenities on site, including a health centre, primary school, community centre, as well as a Sainsbury's Local, café and other retail facilities - the neighbouring picturesque village of Blackheath additionally offers a wealth of restaurants, pubs and attractive shops.
These new homes at Merlin Court, Blackheath Quarter launch 14th June 2014.
