UK Housing Market


A collection of brand-new one- and two-bedroom apartments at Crofton Place in Orpington, in the London Borough of Bromley, is providing locals with a fresh chance to get onto the property ladder. The newly launched shared ownership homes by Latimer, part of Clarion Housing Group, are being built to the highest modern standards, without compromise on quality, visual appeal or sustainability, in line with 

Latimer’s 2024 Customer Satisfaction Gold Award.

Getting onto the property ladder in London is notoriously hard, yet now could be the ideal time to do so. Savills projects that London property prices will rise by 13.9% between 2024 and 2028, while those in the South East will rise by 16.7%. With Orpington sitting at the outer edge of Greater London, next to the greenbelt that runs into the South East, the area offers strong price growth prospects. The shared ownership apartments at Crofton Place enable solo buyers and couples who would otherwise be priced out of the market to get a foot on the ladder.


Every apartment at Crofton Place showcases thoughtful attention to detail. All homes come with a private balcony, while the leafy, landscaped surroundings include play spaces for young children. Indoors, kitchens truly are the heart of the home, with individually designed contemporary units, under-cabinet lighting and integrated appliances. Bedrooms create cosy havens, with soft carpets, white satin woodwork and calm-inducing light grey walls.

Krete Luca, Sales Director at Latimer, comments: “With its well-connected transport links, including regular train services to London, Orpington ensures that residents can enjoy the ease of suburban life without sacrificing easy access to the bustling city.  As such, we are expecting strong demand for these brand-new shared ownership properties, so would encourage anyone interested in getting onto the property ladder to contact Latimer to find out more.”


Orpington is ideal for commuters, with fast trains to several London terminals, a bus stop directly outside Crofton Place, four bike stores at the development and major motorways, such as M20 and M25, nearby. Yet the location also feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of London, with huge swathes of greenery all around.


With an impressive 9.9 square miles of the borough’s 59 square miles dedicated to parks and greenspaces, Bromley is home to ancient forest, wildflower meadows and huge biodiversity, particularly at the 250-acre High Elms Country Park and 300-acre Scadbury Park. Goddington Park, just to the south of Orpington, is also a hit with those who want to stay active, thanks to its wide array of sports facilities (including football, rugby, cricket, tennis and basketball). The local area is also home to several golf courses, while the Arts & Crafts Priory Gardens – just a 10-minute stroll from Crofton Place – offers a lovely spot to wander around the pleasure grounds and lakes.

Crofton Place’s location also puts the best of Orpington’s local retail and dining scene within residents’ reach. The apartments are just a couple of minutes’ walk from the town’s high street, with its cafes, restaurants, pubs and comprehensive mix of shops. An impressive 11 ‘Outstanding’ rated schools are also available in the town, providing high-quality education options for children aged from two all the way up to 19.
