We get it. Living in London forever isn't for everyone. Whether you're looking for a bigger home that won't break the bank, or somewhere quieter to raise the kids, there are plenty of totally valid reasons for wanting to up sticks beyond the confines of the M25 (and don't worry, we won't revoke your Londonist fan credentials for doing so.)
But moving away from the capital doesn't have to mean waving goodbye to London life entirely. Not if your new gaff is just 35 minutes from Liverpool Street. Welcome to City Park West.
Located in the heart of Chelmsford, City Park West is a commuter's dream. Not only is the train station just a few minutes' walk away, this slick new housing development from rental specialists Folio London comes with secure underground parking — good luck finding that in London.
What's more, thanks to its close proximity to the capital, you can spend your spare time exploring your excellent new neighbourhood, rather than stuck on a train for hours every evening. And there's plenty to discover: the best shops and restaurants Chelmsford has to offer are on your doorstep, as well as an eclectic mix of historic and contemporary architecture.
The development itself is set among acres of green space, linking new pedestrian and cycle routes. As well as being less than an hour from central London, a 35 minute train journey in the other direction will take you through open countryside down to the Essex coast — so whether you feel those bright city lights calling you, or you fancy a more rural escape, you're well-catered for.
Brand new one and two-bedroom homes at City Park West are available to rent from as little as £850 per month right now! That gets you onsite management, a 24 hour emergency repair service, and oh-so-sleek kitchen and bathroom fixtures, plus a 24-hour concierge service coming soon.
Folio London also offer chic furniture packages, so you don't have to worry about lugging that second-hand chest of drawers out to Chelmsford. Tenancies are flexible, which is great news if you're considering buying a property in the not-too-distant future. You'll even get a welcome pack, so you can start making West City Park feel like home straight away.
One bedroom apartments at West City Park start at £850 per calendar month, with two-bedroom properties available from £1,125pcm. Enquire here.
