St William, a new joint venture between Berkeley Group and National Grid, is set to launch Hardwick House at its new development Courtyard Gardens. The development is located in the quintessential Surrey town of Oxted and has its own green oasis. This makes it perfect for both first and second-time buyers, as it offers residents the chance to have a home in the country and live within reach of London. For first-time buyers, Help to Buy is also available on select plots.
Courtyard Gardens is in a prime location, as it is in the centre of town and residents are just minutes from the charming high-street and railway station. From Oxted station, trains take you to London Bridge in 33 minutes and London Victoria in 39 minutes. For those that drive, Gatwick Airport can be reached in 22 minutes by car.
This April, a new collection of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments will be made available at Courtyard Gardens, an exclusive gated community. Alongside the launch of the apartments, St William will also unveil Courtyard Gardens’ first show home. The show home has been designed by award-winning interior design practice Honky and offers buyers the opportunity to experience quality, design, and impressive views first-hand.
Offering the ideal blend of town and country living, homes are: set around private central gardens, nestled at the foot of the North Downs, and a 3-minute walk to the railway station. Once complete, Courtyard Gardens will deliver 111 beautifully appointed homes, which are located in a private area moments from Oxted high street.
Courtyard Gardens presents a rare opportunity to purchase a new home in Oxted town centre and brings together the quality, convenience, and low maintenance of a new build property with gated basement parking for all homes.
Homes to reconnect with nature
St William brings a unique landscape-led design approach to Courtyard Gardens. Created by landscape architects, Charnwood Landscape Design, the gardens are formal in design with varied walkways and a series of pockets and enclaves. This provides ample space for residents to socialise, relax and reconnect with nature – while a grand water feature greets residents on arrival.
Built around striking tiered landscaped gardens and courtyards, the high-specification apartments reflect St William’s unique design concept – to lead by the landscape.
Alongside creating beautiful gardens for residents to enjoy, the landscaping has also been well thought out and designed to harbour natural wildlife. Around the development, you will also find a large variety of plants and trees, which have been selected to ensure the landscape is colourful all year round.
Each apartment at Courtyard Gardens benefits from private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace. Some of these outdoor spaces overlook the central gardens and/or the North Downs.
A well-connected countryside location
Renowned for its strong community feel, Oxted’s town centre is home to an array of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafés. There are also many green spaces to explore and Master Park is close to the development. In nearby North Downs, you will find walking trails, bridleways, and cycling routes.
Surrey is also known for its excellent educational facilities and there are a number of schools and colleges rated ‘Outstanding’ in the area, including St Mary’s Primary School, Limpsfield Church of England Infant School and Oxted Secondary School.
Elegant design, inside and out
Echoing the same attention to detail found across the development, the apartments in Hardwick House are perfectly equipped for modern life with contemporary interiors throughout. High-specification kitchens are open to generous living and dining areas, which are flooded with natural light. The kitchens also feature sleek, soft-close cabinetry, available in a choice of four colour palettes.
The architecture sensitively builds on Oxted’s classic townscape with traditional features, including stone entrance pillars and ornate ironworks. Positioned in a tranquil corner of the scheme, Hardwick House has been designed with a curved façade to maximise the scenic views, while the penthouse apartments boast outstanding, far-reaching views across the North Downs.
Phil Warman, Sales & Marketing Director at St William, comments:
“Courtyard Gardens is a rarity for Oxted, offering new homes in the heart of the town, just moments from the high street. Homes bring together the best of town and country: the quality and convenience of a new build home, surrounded by beautiful landscaping, with a thriving town on the doorstep and the capital within easy reach.”
Robert Leech, Director at Robert Leech Estates Agents, comments:
“Oxted has been waiting for the redevelopment of this site for almost 50 years, and the launch of Hardwick House, the final building on the development, and unveiling of the first show home marks an exciting new chapter for Courtyard Gardens and the town – an opportunity to experience the scheme’s high-specification finishes, thoughtful layouts and contemporary design first-hand.”
The new show home is now available to view by appointment. Prices for Courtyard Gardens currently start from £437,000. Visit www.courtyardgardensoxted.co.uk for further information.
