Winner of the Best New Development in the Retirement Living sector, Carriages is a welcoming collection of one and two bedroom apartments in the heart of Purley.
The simple pleasures of being at home have been a central point of reference in the design of the development, and the resulting apartments are light, spacious and convenient, some with private roof terraces or gardens.
Architects Woods Bagot have designed the five-storey building with exposed brickwork, bronze features and a dark exterior covering. The development is situated just south of the old tracks of the Surrey Iron Railway; for many years its horse-drawn carriages transported freight goods from the North Downs to the Thames. The landscapers have found inspiration in this local history and, as a result, Carriages is bordered by coarse stone beds of wildflowers known as ballast gardens.
Whether you enjoy cooking for friends and family in your light and spacious apartment; relaxing with a novel in the social lounge; or returning after a busy day out to have a drink on the roof terrace; Carriages is always a sociable and relaxing place to call home.
Surrounded by parkland and golf courses, Purley is a green and affluent district. With excellent transport links from East Croydon station, the M23 and A22, its easy to enjoy everything that London and the South East has to offer.
On Brighton Road, you’ll find local conveniences such as a bank, Post Office, pharmacy and opticians, while there are many boutiques, restaurants and independent coffee shops across the town. Two golf clubs, a literary society and an active debating society are just some of the local communities to get involved in, while the town’s tree-lined parks lend themselves to leisurely strolls in all seasons.
