Welcome to Carriages
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
What's on Offer
From the reception to the rooftop terrace, Carriages Purley is designed to offer welcoming, relaxing spaces. You’ll feel at home in your own apartment, in the communal lounge and across the development.
The fourth-floor lounge is the development's social hub. At one end, a reading area is furnished with comfortable armchairs and an honesty bar. At the other, the social kitchen is fitted with a dining table, banquette seating and a food larder, which stocks a range of local produce.
Accessible from the Sky Lounge, the rooftop terrace is a spacious outdoor area offering extensive views from Carriages across the town of Purley. Perfect to unwind alone or amongst friends.
For those occasions when friends or family wish to stay overnight, Carriages has a welcoming guest suite located near reception on the ground floor. Bookings can be made through the Host.
The reception is where you'll find the Host, who has a broad knowledge of the local area and will be happy to help with any queries you may have. They will also be there to make sure you’ve settled in, feel welcome, and organise social events.
