Frederick Rogers founded Keston Park in 1923 on principles of open space and harmony with nature. Today, the Park remains a true to these values.
Drawing on its rich heritage, it is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious and unique postcodes in the UK. Its covetable location within London’s orbit offers quick access to the city while enjoying space and seclusion among the natural splendour of the Kent countryside. As an exclusive and gated neighbourhood, residents can enjoy peace, security and a convivial community spirit. With such a rare combination of benefits, Keston Park’s an ideal place to live.
140 ACRES OF LAND
& over 200 residential properties
Extending over 140 acres of land, the Park encompasses over 200 residential properties, seven private roads and two large swathes of woodland. Its aesthetic is distinctive and idyllic with wide roads, leafy verges, impressive gated entrances and charming heritage design details including original street lamps and elegant road signs. It is maintained to impeccable standards by a variety of resident-led committees which seek to embrace the modern while remaining true to the Park’s original vision.
Residences range from the original 1920s homes through to ultra-modern dwellings boasting high standards of design, technology and sustainability. With homes as diverse as its residents, Keston Park welcomes new owners to carve out their own way of life among a warm, welcoming and utterly unique community.
Keston Park is set in one of the most sought after areas in the country. Located on the border between Greater London and Kent, it offers boundless space and beauty among nature while maintaining convenient connections to the city. Only 15 miles from the capital, residents can find themselves in the city centre within half an hour. The nearby train stations of Hayes, Orpington, Bromley South offer fast and regular services to the city’s major stations including London Bridge, Waterloo East, Charing Cross, Cannon Street, Blackfriars and Victoria.

Designated as a conservation area, Keston Park has always sought to preserve and enrich the nature in which it sits. Its connection to nature is easily felt: spacious landscaped gardens, quiet roads and tree-lined verges abound with light and shade, the sounds of birdsong and glimpses of the local wildlife. Residents can walk among 40 acres of private woods, Lake Wood and Ninhams Wood, which contain mature and protected trees and are home to a plethora of wildlife from deer and badgers to the protected greater crested newt! The woods are dotted with lakes which offer picturesque views to be enjoyed throughout the changing seasons.
UNIQUELY PLACED GATEWAY
There is a range of nearby nature reserves from ancient woodland, to heathland and chalk grassland. The incredible local biodiversity attracted Charles Darwin who wrote his On the Origin of Species while living in Down House nearby.
The estate is a uniquely placed gateway to the diversely beautiful countryside of both Kent and Surrey. From the Surrey Hills down to the White Cliffs of Dover, their interiors offer pastoral vistas, wooded valleys, atmospheric marshlands, historic cathedrals and castles, quaint villages and feet-by-the-fire pubs.
Mindful of its rich heritage, Keston Park still adheres to the original covenants set out during its conception in the 1920s. They aim to safeguard the Park against over-development and to preserve its principles of green, open space. The Park Management committee are in charge of upholding these covenants. It ensures that all developments are fully approved, employ the highest standards of design and use high quality materials of local character; that construction and landscaping cause minimal disturbance to the land and complement their surroundings. The Estate Management Committee is responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of the estate, refurbishing and improving footbaths, gates, lights, street signs and roads in accordance with residents’ needs.
Keston Park is recognised as one of the most secure private residential estates in the UK with a discreet but extremely effective private security system in place. The Park is protected by manned guarding and CCTV cameras, which are monitored 24/7 via the control centre of a local security firm. The Management Committee is constantly reviewing security measures ensure residents’ interests are properly safeguarded.
