The Best New Homes In The London Borough of Havering

Posted 26 January 2024 by Keith Osborne

WhatHouse? takes a look at some of the best new homes for sale in the London Borough of Havering…

The capital’s easternmost borough was created in 1965 and saw many places formerly in Essex transferred to Greater London, though you may often see Essex still used in postal addresses. It has a diverse population of around a quarter-of-a-million people and has a mix of urban and suburban areas and a lot of protected Green Belt land.

Its many public transport links make it a popular place for commuters, most recently with the opening of the Elizabeth line but also including two railway lines, District line Tube stations and a network of bus services. With the A12 in the north, A13 in the south and M25 on its eastern border, the area’s road links into and around London are also impressive.

The borough will be attractive to families, with a notable number of ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ Ofsted-rated schools for children of all ages.

There’s an active new build property market in this borough, so it could make an ideal choice for a range of budgets. Any special offers and deals mentioned here are subject to terms and conditions.

Charles Church at BroadwayCharles Church at Broadway

The best new home for sale in Rainham

Located in the south of the borough, with its own railway station on the c2c line and the A13 a few minutes away, Rainham still has its mediævil church but also a host of more modern amenities including a leisure centre, library, schools and college, numerous independent shops and places to eat, and a Tesco Extra supermarket.

Charles Church at Broadway is ideally located to access everything that Rainham offers and its range of one- and two-bedroom apartments have proven popular with all sorts of buyers. Current availability ranges from £253,995 to £293,995. Buyers can ask about Part Exchange and Home Change schemes, which will reduce the hassle and costs of selling an existing home, and an Early Bird initiative to secure a new home before it is released for sale.

Close by to this development is another, Knightswood Place, from Persimmon Homes. This is a collection of apartments and houses with the previous phase now sold out but a new one coming soon. Find out more.

Another major housebuilder, Countryside, is well underway on a major development called Beam Park, located opposite one of the entrance to Beam Parkland Country Park. This large development will comprise not just one mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes of different types, but over 40% will be open green space, including a three-hectare central park with the River Beam running through it. New community facilities are also part of the plan, with two proposed primary schools, early-years nursery, medical centre, gym and multi-faith centre. Currently, there’s a final chance to purchase a four-bedroom house with off-street parking here, with prices starting at £520,000. Find out more.

New Green Havering is only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and station and is a Shared Ownership development where prices start at just £70,000 for a 25% share of a 555-sq-ft one-bedroom apartment (full market value £280,000). There’s an excellent choice with one, two or three bedrooms available at the moment and some are ready to move into. There are further units to be released in the future.

St George's Park from BellwaySt George's Park from Bellway

The best new home for sale in Hornchurch

Another area in the borough that grew quickly after the introduction of public transport in the early 20th century, Hornchurch had a number of sites that played a major role for British armed forces in both world wars. Regeneration since then has seen many new properties built, though there are still some 35 listed buildings. The town centre, well served by major and independent brands, is actually closer to Emerson Park railway station that it is to the District line station of its own – but having both is a great plus.

There are homes ready to move into at Bellway’s St George's Park development, just a ten-minute walk from Hornchurch station. The current range of one- and two-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom houses have starting prices from £315,000 to £620,000. Some plots are offer with a deal of up to £20,000 cashback, and buyers are invited to ask about Deposit Unlock, which requires a deposit of just 5%, or Bellway’s own Express Mover and Part Exchange initiatives. Find out more.


The best new home for sale in Upminster

Upminster is arguably the best-connected town in Havering. It has two Tube stations, and its main station is also served by regular trains on the Shoeburyness-Fenchurch Street line and has Overground services to Romford for connection to the Greater Anglia line and Elizabeth line. The A127 and M25 are also close by. The town centre has independent shops, a couple of supermarkets and a good range of places to eat and drink.

Set to launch this year, Kings Green is a development from Abbey New Homes situated close to Upminster Golf Club in an established residential area. Though comprising only 35 properties, there will be an impressive array of three-, four-, five- and six-bedroom house types there. Access to central London for work or pleasure is easy, being only a 12-minute walk from the station. Find out more.
