“Walking alongside the canal you get a real buzz. I can’t think of anywhere in London that’s like Hackney Wick!”
29 year old Jack Pearce, was ready to purchase his first home and working in the property industry, Jack had all the behind the scenes knowledge to make the right choice.
Having kept his eye on the market for some time, Jack’s due diligence finally paid off, where he found his first home at Stone Studios, in Hackney Wick. “Working in property, I knew Telford Homes’ were a reputable and experienced developer with a proven track record. Their homes are built to a high standard, but still deliver an affordable property for first-time buyers.”
Having previously lived in South West London, Jack saw the opportunity to get more for his money in East London. As an emerging residential location, Hackney Wick offered more affordability, green spaces and local amenities. “Walking alongside the canal you get a real buzz for the area. I can’t think of anywhere in London that’s like Hackney Wick!”
Hackney Wick is where high art and edgy innovation meet, boasting unrivalled and beautiful canalside living. There are flavours to savour from its quirky, and hip range of restaurants, bars, independent breweries, global eateries, as well as vintage markets and live music venues -and thanks to the 2012 London Olympics, the area has undergone a major transformation, creating one of London’s biggest parks – the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – packed full of open spaces and activities to enjoy throughout the year.
These aren’t the only draws of Hackney for home buyers; it’s accessibility is also a real bonus. Previously difficult to get to, Hackney Wick is now served by a frequent Overground station, getting you into the West End in 20 minutes- perfect for commuting or venturing into the City.
Jack bought his property off-plan during its first launch in 2020. Due to be completed by the end of 2021, he is now looking forward to settling into his new home – which boasts a large balcony, suiting his needs. “Reserving the property off-plan gave me the security of purchasing but also the extra time to save for stamp duty and furniture before I moved in. Hackney Wick offered me the same lifestyle I had before, in a great area, with a cost saving. It ticked all the boxes.”
