Move to an address in a Thames Gateway regeneration hotspot and enjoy a commute of less than an hour to your office in Canary Wharf.

That proposition is one Weston Homes is hoping its newly launched Waterford Place scheme in Dartford appeals to Londoners.

It’s an area set to recieve £94million in funding to revamp its town centre and create new parks and a football stadium as well as office and retail space and transport facilities.

The 117 high-quality homes in Weston’s scheme, which is surrounded by landscaped grounds on the River Darent, start at £160,000.

The one and two-bedroom apartments and seven, three-bedroom family homes offer open-plan living areas, double bedrooms with en suites and separate master bathrooms, plentiful storage space and either a balcony or large terrace.

All feature the development’s signature high specification interiors including engineered oak flooring and designer Oakwood kitchens with Zanussi appliances, Fascino basins and a hot water boiling taps.

Weston Homes CEO Bob Weston said: “Waterford Place is set in the heart of the Thames Gateway, an area that is currently undergoing huge change and regeneration, making it highly desirable for those looking to get onto the property ladder in an up-and-coming location.”

Its position means Wharfers jetting abroad for business face a 40-minute drive to London City Airport.

Meanwhile, a commute to the estate by public transport means just a change from National Rail to the DLR at Woolwich on a journey lasting around 50 minutes.

A little closer to home, Bluewater and Lakeside shopping centres offer options for after-work retail therapy.
