THE MARKET PLACE IDEAL FOR DOWNSIZING IN ESSEX
As people get older and their children move out of the family home, many choose to move to a smaller property that is easier to maintain and also cheaper to run, whilst releasing equity to enjoy their retirement. Nayland Court, the main residential element of The Market Place Apartments in the heart of Romford Town Centre, is an ideal choice for this growing band of downsizers to live because of its wide selection of apartments, excellent amenities on the doorstep and convenient travel options. Nayland Court, marketed by Telford Homes, is being developed by Pickenham (Romford) Ltd as part of the 3.5 acre redevelopment site in The Market Place. Nayland Court offers downsizers a good selection of one and two bedroom apartments, with spacious accommodation. Some of the apartments have separate kitchens, which offers a choice between open plan living or separate cooking and entertaining space. Most of the apartments also feature a private balcony or terrace, overlooking the Market Place or with views of the private landscaped deck area that is nestled amongst the apartments, which creates an elevated outdoor ‘courtyard garden’. Solely for the use by the residents, this garden area is a rare feature for town centre developments and will provide an oasis with landscaping and seating and is ideal for those who no longer want to manage their own garden, yet still enjoy outside space.
The development is close to many excellent amenities, including a new medical centre due to open in May, located within the Market Hall and dozens of high street shops and cafés as well as a Travelodge hotel. The indoor market hall, which will house independent boutiques and stalls, will also feature a 10,000 sq ft food hall for food and drink retailers. The outdoor market is open three times a week and is also home to a twice-monthly Farmer’s Market. This ensures downsizers won’t have to travel far to access town centre amenities, including the train station which is only a short walk from the development, offering travel connections to Stratford in eight minutes and London Liverpool Street in only 17 minutes. Additionally, major bus routes stop right on St Edwards Way outside the apartments making bus travel in all directions easy.
Those residents looking for a ‘lockup and leave’ property will find the Market Place apartments ideal. Those who have a property abroad will welcome the security of the private residents audio entry and CCTV, with the peace of mind of the Telford Homes customer service support which provides exceptional customer service with free 24/7, 365 days a year support for the first two years of ownership of the property. Sheena Ellwood, Marketing Director at Telford Homes, comments: “Nayland Court is an ideal choice for those looking to downsize their property in Romford. Apartments are spacious, secure and low maintenance, with all your major shopping and entertainment needs close by.”
