First time buyers eager to stay in the city will be pleased to discover that one of the leading home provider’s latest offerings includes a range of affordable and contemporary new developments in Harrow, Greenwich, North Woolwich and Waddon, giving them ample opportunity to remain living close to their friends and family, without the need to search further afield for more affordable options.

Eastman Village, Harrow

This is true for home hunters in Harrow, who have been snapping up apartments in an exciting new residential quarter on the site of the historic former Kodak factory.

Eastman Village has a selection of superbly designed one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Each boasts a high specification as standard, including contemporary kitchen units with integrated appliances, en suite and built in wardrobe to the main bedroom, quality flooring with underfloor heating throughout, along with private outdoor space and parking available on selected homes.

There are provisions in place for residents to enjoy a gym, as well as cafés, restaurants and a supermarket. Families will also benefit from the excellent array of schools in the vicinity.

Linked by a new network of footpaths and cycleways, the development is just a 10-minute stroll to Harrow & Wealdstone station. The Bakerloo Line Underground service takes you to London Paddington in less than half an hour, and the London Overground service to Euston in under 15 minutes.

Buyers will no doubt be attracted to the availability of shared ownership at the development. Typically, a two-bedroom apartment at Eastman Village priced at £444,000 would require a 30% share and a minimum 5% deposit of £6,660, along with a subsidised rent on the remaining share. At any time after you buy your home, you will be able to purchase additional shares and even own your home outright. You can also choose to sell at any time.

Copper Creek, Greenwich

Heading East, a new development in historic Greenwich which boasts “panoramic views of the city,” will be available from Spring 2022.

Copper Creek, located just a stone’s throw away from Deptford Creek and the Cutty Sark DLR, offers one, two and three-bedroom stylish apartments, some with majestic views across London, including Canary Wharf, the Shard, the O2 and the River Thames.

The homes here come with the same high specification that Hyde New Homes create as standard, as well as offering fitted white blinds to all homes, and the development is well positioned for commuters heading into the city-centre and beyond. Copper Creek’s close proximity to ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ OFSTED rated schools also makes it ideal for families, and its convenient location, near shops and parks, help contribute to its idyllic, community feel.

Adding to East London’s desirability, is the hotly anticipated Stories Wharf development in North Woolwich.

Comprising 163 new homes, including shared ownership, Stories Wharf is expected to launch in Autumn 2022 and offers modern living with private balconies, terraces or patios. There is also a landscaped communal terrace bringing a wonderful community feel to the development.

Just 15 minutes’ walk to King George V station, its Zone 3 location, with various rail lines to Central London, makes it an ideal choice for commuters. The Woolwich Ferry is within close proximity, linking to the North side of the river and provides quick access to London City Airport – opening up a world of travel, with regular flights available to European and American cities.

Register your interest and we will keep you informed about the launch.

Parkside Triangle, Waddon

Moving further South, buyers will also be pleased to learn about Parkside Triangle, located in Waddon, Croydon.

The development’s green initiatives such as cycle storage and electric car charging points and its Zone 5 location makes it ideal for those who want to leave the car at home to commute into the city. A new pedestrian walk allows direct access to Duppas Hill Recreation Ground, providing a quicker route to Waddon Station, which lies just 11 minutes away and provides access into Central London.

Pricing is to be confirmed ahead of the development’s Winter 2022 launch.
