Purley black v2

Welcome to Carriages

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.

Prices starting from £320,000
