At a glittering lunch event hosted by “Escape to the Country”’s Nicky Chapman, Hexagon were successful in securing a ‘Highly Commended’ award for Malvern House in Kenley in the category of Best First Time Buyer Apartment. The awards were judged by readers from a shortlist of 6 entries via online voting – so thanks to everyone who voted.
Hexagon were entered into 4 categories of the total 15 alongside a number of other RPs including Peabody,, Octavia, Catalyst, Affinity Sutton and East Thames. So were in good company!
Pamela Hunte (Senior Sales Executive) and Kerry Heath (Development & Regeneration Director) proudly represented Hexagon at the event, and shared a table with Cast Media who designed and submitted the entries for us.
What makes Malvern House so special?
Featuring 19 spacious apartments (seven 1-beds, eleven 2-beds and one 3-bed), Malvern House is on a site that had been derelict for some time in the popular commuter district of Kenley. Although it’s a new build scheme, the quality of design and finish is so high it’s barely distinguishable from nearby period properties.
The rooms are particularly well-sized compared to similarly priced shared ownership properties nearby, giving buyers the luxury of space as well as a superior finish. Some apartments also have desirable extras such as balconies and en-suites.
Buyers here have the convenience of a free allocated parking space, plus an internal bike store, and there are attractive communal gardens to relax in. The fact that the grounds are also home to a badger conservation area reflects the site’s tranquil setting. Built to level three of the Code for Sustainable homes, these properties also feature photovoltaic panels to help keep heating and hot water bills down.
Despite the premium location and standard of these apartments, they’re really affordable. Buyers could secure a 25% share in the fabulous one-bedroom apartments for just over £50,000 and a 35% share for circa £75,000. Meaning that, with the relevant deposit, even someone earning from as little as £22,000 (or a couple with a household income of just £31,000) could afford to buy.
