After falling in love with Weston Homes’ Morello Quarter in Basildon, Essex, Emma Williams couldn’t believe her luck when she managed to snap up the coveted show apartment. Ticking all her boxes, the beautiful apartment is finished to the signature high Weston Homes standard, located only a four minute walk from the centre of town and boasts a west-facing balcony overlooking a landscaped garden.
Civil servant Emma, 45, who has lived in Basildon since she was a toddler, said: “I couldn’t believe my luck when the show apartment became available because when I first saw it, I fell in love with the solid quality, design and the balcony. It’s in a great location with incredibly high-specification, and is honestly my dream apartment.”
Each home at Morello Quarter boasts spacious bedrooms and living areas that benefit from ample light, a designer kitchen complete with integrated appliances, luxurious bathrooms with ceramic tiling and chrome fittings, and high quality fitted wardrobes in the master bedrooms. Morello Quarter comprises of four contemporary buildings rising from four to ten storeys in height.
Emma continues: “Being on the fourth floor means that I get the lovely sunshine during the day streaming onto my balcony, which is great for me because I’m a bit of a sun-worshipper and love the idea of coming home from work and being able to soak up some sunshine from the comfort of my own home. The balcony is also spacious enough for some outdoor chairs extending my living area.”
The buildings have sleek tiered facades with balconies, expanses of glazing, terraces and penthouse roof gardens. Landscaped gardens, decks and terraces on various levels provide ample amenity space and form a ‘green hub’ not far from the town centre. In addition, as part of the “More Basildon” Vision, Morello Quarter is also an integral part in the transformation and regeneration of Basildon into a modern 21st century town, transforming the town centre and putting the area firmly on the map.
“Basildon was built in the 60s and the town centre has recently seen a bit of much-needed rejuvenation. I do think that the regeneration will increase property prices and as more homes are built, people will move here and a revived sense of community will be felt. I’ve lived here since I was three and I welcome the changes to redevelop the town centre. There’s exciting talk of pedestrianising streets, creating more of a night-life and building extra community facilities. I can’t wait,” adds Emma.
In a prime location, Morello Quarter is only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, where Emma works, and the Basildon train station that gets to London Fenchurch Street in only half an hour. Emma comments: “One of the reasons I was looking to move was to be closer to work and Morello Quarter is only a four minute walk to my office, which is the best commute I think I’ll ever have. I’m not restricted by bus timetables and public transport or traffic. It’s brilliant.”
