Persimmon Homes seeks more Strood sites
Wed 24 August 2011, 3:57 pm
Persimmon Homes has marked its Medway Gate scheme in Strood as a top-performer and is seeking new sites in the area.
The development (above) is situated near junction two of the M2 motorway and, crucially, the 18-minute HS 1 commuter train service to London St Pancras leaves from Ebbsfleet just a 12-minute drive away.
Speaking exclusively to Medway1, Price added: "It's very much to do with location and the improved railway transport to London. There was very little development there in the recent past so it's pent-up demand. We are definitely looking for more sites in the area."
Persimmon claims that a large proportion of Medway Gate customers are first-time buyers. One-bed and two-bed "Ravensbourne" apartments sell at prices from, respectively, £103,975 and £126,250; two-bed "Aylesham" houses are priced from £149,995.
