4 October 2021
The Victoria Central development is just a five-minute walk to the high street
Southend-on-Sea has always been a popular destination in Essex, with Adventure Island, plenty of independent businesses and the beach all in one place.
With Weston Homes' Victoria Central development now is the perfect time to get onto the property ladder, or upgrade your current property, with its range of luxurious apartments in the sought-after area.
Located near the heart of the town, Victoria Central has everything you need nearby. There are a number of local bars, restaurants and shops residents can enjoy as well as The Victoria Shopping Centre and The Royals Shopping Centre.
There are also a number of attractions along the seven-mile seafront such as the mile-long pier, the Sea Life Adventure Aquarium and Adventure Island.
Ideal for commuters, Southend Victoria Railway Station is only a 5-minute walk away and Southend Central is just a 15-minute walk. Both stations have regular services into London Liverpool Street taking just under an hour.
There are also great road connections with the A127 close by, leading onto the M25 and A130. Southend Airport is also easily accessible taking just 15 minutes by car.
Victoria Central is also an ideal location for home workers as each resident can benefit from access to 1Gb Hyperfast Fibre Broadband. Southend is also set to become one of the first 'Gigabit Cities' in the UK outside of London which will provide fast connections to schools and workplaces.
Sales consultant Harry Coker is excited about the development and believes the location makes it an attractive home for a range of buyers.
He said: "Victoria Central is a brand new development in the heart of Southend. It offers a range of one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments. We’ve had all sorts of buyers here, first-time buyers, young professionals and families in the three-bedroom apartments.
"The development is located just a couple minutes walk away from Southend Victoria station, that’s within an hour of London Liverpool Street station so it’s great for commuters.
"The seafront is just a 10 minutes walk away from the site; it’s great for Sunday walks and family days out.
"Within a five-minute walk, you’ve got the high road with a range of shopping options as well as bars and restaurants."
Each apartment at Victoria Central has been designed with Weston Homes' all-inclusive specification.
Harry added: "Here at Victoria Central you get a luxury specification. What you see in our show apartments is what you get.
"Buyers are really impressed with the specification that Weston Homes build to. That includes the digital taps in the bathrooms, the Smart mirrors and the Smart showers.
"The wooden flooring throughout, the carpeting in the bedrooms and all the white goods and appliances you see in the kitchens are all included with the sale of the property and are a nice touch."
And, of course, with a Weston Homes' property, you can make it just how you like it.
"Weston Homes offers an extensive range of high-quality kitchen, flooring and bathroom choices which allows buyers to put their own individual touches on their new apartment," said Harry.
"The majority of the apartments have their own outdoor space with their own nice sized balcony. Residents will also benefit from the roof terraces which are on the 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th floors, as well as the landscaped gardens on the second floor."
For first time buyers, Weston Homes has a variety of options to reserve a plot at Victoria Central, including Help to Buy. With the Help to Buy scheme, buyers looking to get onto the property ladder can do so with the help of a government loan of up to 20%*.
Harry explained: "As well as Help to Buy, there is also Weston Homes' First-time SecureBuy scheme which allows buyers to reserve a plot at today's market value. If for whatever reason their circumstances change between reservation and applying for a mortgage they are able to get their deposit refunded (subject to terms and conditions).
"Buying a property off-plan can be a stressful process, so here at Weston Homes, we’re available to advise from the original viewing all the way through to completion.
"We work alongside local solicitors and can offer an allowance on completion to help with the conveyancing."
At the Victoria Central show home, visitors can experience life at the development for themselves 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.
Prices start from £190,000 with new homes available to reserve now. Book a viewing to explore one of the three luxurious show homes and find out more about the range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments available at Victoria Central. Visit the Weston Homes website or call 01702 965 080.
