Weston Homes has launched a selection of high-tech apartments even James Bond would boast about – at just a touch of a button the home can be transformed to suit any mood. Pre-programmed iPads provided with the homes are able to cater to the whims of even the most demanding of tech-savvy homeowners and control a range of functions from the heating to home entertainment.
Bob Weston, Chairman and Chief Executive of Weston Homes, comments: “Silverhind’s fully automated apartments offer a type of convenience which takes our homes into a new era of technology.
“Buyers are increasingly expecting more technology as part and parcel of their property purchases. Superfast broadband connections, surround-sound speakers and data-streaming capability around the entire home are no longer considered the privilege of some homeowners, but rather as an attractive value add which tempts even those buying for the first time.”
Appealing to the Apple generation, master bedrooms and living rooms come with iPads loaded with an integrated Legrand Home system to control the lighting, Sonos music system, heating and the electric curtain facility. Weston Homes have even organised an internet connection of up to 100 megabytes to be installed during construction, and are offering each home one year’s paid super-fast Virgin broadband.
The Sonos music system is fitted with a one terabyte network storage device that can hold a music collection, pictures and videos, and can be accessed at any time – perfect for entertaining friends. Accessing the Legrand Home automation system and Sonos music system via the iPad makes these complex technologies simple to use. The iPad docking stations ensure that homeowners always have control at their fingertips. Access to the home network can be made via SMS too, activating the under-floor heating even before stepping through the front door.
The Silverhind development houses high-end apartments and penthouses that have been designed to appeal to homeowners who are increasingly looking for the best of both worlds – a short distance from the office in London and the idyllic lifestyle that comes with living in the scenic Essex countryside with a techno-savvy twist.
Prices for a two bedroom apartment start from £539,995 and a three bedroom apartment from £634,995. For more information, visit www.weston-homes.com/silverhind or call 0208 281 2785.
