Sales Success at Rochester Riverside
Despite the uncertainty shrouded on the housing market due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Rochester Riverside – Countryside & Hyde’s £419m waterside development in Rochester, Kent – has continued to attract families to the development as three different types of three-bedroom homes: The Horsted, The Shellduck and The Darland all sold out this year.
The Horsted, which launched in June 2020, saw all ten houses sell out within a month; the three-bedroom homes came with open plan living and kitchen area, and had been fitted with integrated appliances and carport.
The success of these homes is owed to their design, the affordability, connectivity to London and the local amenities in the area. And the trend continues. The four-bedroom houses, currently starting from £585,000 are also seeing a lot of interest. The development promotes healthy living and the contemporary semi-detached homes are perfect for young couples looking to start a family, and growing families looking to lay down roots and enjoy life in the historic town of Rochester. As a significant proportion of us continue to work from home in the aftermath of the pandemic, homeowners wanting to work from home can feel secure that they have access to state-of-the-art internet. New residents will benefit from free hyper optic WIFI for the first three months after moving in.
Rochester Riverside benefits from being situated in a historical town whilst being under an hour away from London. Unlike many other commuter destinations, Rochester is an established town with a variety of cultural events, which attract visitors from all over the UK and Europe.
To continue success in 2020, Rochester Riverside has been crowned the Winner of Winners at the Housing Design Awards, the longest-running housing awards programme in the UK, for the completed Phase 1B of the development. The Building was also awarded the Healthy Life Award in recognition of the high-quality green open space being created.
Tom O’Shea, Associate Sales & Marketing Director, Partnerships, North & South London, Countryside, said: “It is fantastic to see growing families choose Rochester Riverside as their new home, despite the challenges and uncertainties of the global pandemic. With homebuyers’ preferences changing in the aftermath of the pandemic, our homes at Rochester Riverside offer beautifully designed homes with more space, access to more open space, great transport links and a wonderful waterside location with views of the historic town and cathedral. With more phases of the development to launch in the autumn, we are truly excited to welcome more homebuyers to this flourishing neighbourhood.”
