Ashford Proving Very Popular with City Buyers

Strong demand from city dwellers for outside space has fuelled a surge in sales at a luxury apartment development in Ashford, Kent, which is just 36 minutes by train from London St Pancras.

Only 11 of the 216 apartments at Victoria Point remain to be sold with developers Elevate Property Group and joint venture partners Investin plc revealing that a decision to upscale the outside space during construction has paid dividends.

Ashford is currently rated one of the top 50 UK places to live and is Kent’s number one business location.

Pete Cronin, sales negotiator in selling agents Savills’ Sevenoaks office, said the arrival of Ashford International Train Station had been a catalyst for an economic surge in the town and surrounding area. He added: “Victoria Point is less than 200 yards from the rail station which links both to London and the continent. Ashford is expected to double in size over the next 25 years and a plan for a new Commercial Quarter will become a catalyst for future economic growth.”

All remaining 12 apartments are ready to occupy and virtual as well as physical viewings are available.

They are all two bedroom apartments with two ensuite bathrooms and one family bathroom, and most have balconies and parking. Sizes range from 799 to 900 sq ft with prices from £280,000 to £295,000.

Elevate Property Group has built a reputation for quality medium rise residential developments in the past decade and is acquisitive, constantly looking for more redevelopment opportunities. In its first ten years, Elevate has constructed over 1,000 homes and in 2022 alone will be starting work or completing a further 628 properties.
