Best for commuters – Hot spot in the South East


Those looking for a high quality home in outer London with excellent commuter connections should consider Weston Homes popular development, Morello Quarter in Basildon, an area which has just been named the best commuter hot spot in the South East in a survey by CBRE.

The new report showed that property prices cost an average of £163,121 and a monthly travel card costs £312.30, a total of £893.45 for travel and mortgage combined, making it a desirable location for first time buyers, couples and professionals looking for a new home.

At Morello Quarter prices start from just £129,000 for a one bedroom apartment, and for two bedroom, two bathroom apartments from just £164,000, making them affordable for first time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder in an excellent commutable location. Weston Homes is also offering the Government backed Help to Buy scheme at the development, which allows purchasers to put down just 5% deposit and benefit from an additional 20% contribution from the Government.

Bob Weston, CEO of Weston Homes commented: “At Morello Quarter, we have experienced excellent sales success, and just a few apartments remain in the latest phase. We feel that this is due to the high quality, location and commutability. Many of the purchasers are professionals, who commute into London.”

First Time Buyer, Luke Tully, bought an apartment at Morello Quarter after discovering its commutable location, taking around 30 minutes by train into Central London. Luke commented:“Affordability was high on my wish list, but I also wanted to live somewhere that offered me a manageable commute and that wasn’t too far from family. Basildon seemed an obvious choice.

“Morello Quarter is only a three minute walk from the train station, I can get to work in under an hour and my parents are about a 45 minute drive away. While I was looking for an apartment I was staying with them and my commute to Canary Wharf was an hour and a half. It’s a dream now in comparison.”
