A LANDMARK office block in the heart of Southend is set for a £52million cash injection creating 217 plush, seaview apartments.
Leading housebuilder, Weston Homes, is behind the 15-storey development called Victoria Central in an old HMRC building in Victoria Avenue, Southend – the gateway to the town centre.
It will boast a brick and glass façade building with glass-fronted balustrades and a raised, glazed ground floor.
The development has a seven-storey rear wing and the landscaped courtyard features timber decking, stone-bordered plant beds and semi-mature trees.
A number of communal rooftop terraces are also available for residents to socialise or simply enjoy the stunning views over the seaside town.
The development includes 217 one, two and three-bedroom apartments complete with a landscaped courtyard, stylish entrance foyer and 275 sqm of ground floor commercial space.
Prices start from £185,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, £218,500 for a two-bedroom apartment and £285,000 for a three-bedroom apartment.
Suzanne Aplin, sales and marketing director at Weston Homes commented: “Weston Homes has a long history of building new homes in Southend, and we are thrilled to have launched Victoria Central, our latest collection of beautifully designed and finished apartments. Victoria Central provides a fantastic opportunity to live right in the heart of this popular seaside town, whilst being the most perfect location near Southend Victoria for commuters into London.”
Edward Robinson, partner in the new homes team at Knight Frank – which is marketing the property – added: “The ‘escape to the country’ trend dominated 2020, but the ‘return to normality’ drive will certainly take precedence this year.
“That said, Covid-19 has shaken up what people want from their homes – buyers this year will be looking for those golden locations that offer an abundance of space and a quick commute.
“With Southend-on-Sea’s fast rail connections into central London and excellent property prices, it’s becoming incredibly popular.”
Bosses say all the apartments available at Victoria Central provide high, fully inclusive specification and state-of-the-art interior design.
They add home comes complete with all flooring finishes – tiled floors to bathrooms, carpets to bedrooms and oak strip wood flooring throughout the rest of the apartment, in a choice of various finishes to enable buyers to personalise their property.
The kitchens are fully-fitted with a complete range of appliances including a stainless steel electric fan oven, ceramic hob, integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
Residents will also be offered a wide choice of designer kitchen units with Fintech Zoom stone worktops and upstands. LED lighting is provided under the wall units and there is even an instant boiling water tap provided for the ultimate kitchen convenience.
Luxury bathrooms and en-suite bathrooms have digitally controlled Smart Taps, Smart Mirrors with LED lighting, shaver socket, digital clock and de-mist mirror as well as Smart Showers and Baths.
Prices at Victoria Central start from £185,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, £218,500 for a two-bedroom apartment and £285,000 for a three-bedroom apartment.
