Telford Homes unveils its latest iconic Olympic fringe development Computer generated image of Matchmakers Wharf overlooking the River Lea.

Telford Homes is on its marks to release the remainder of its latest & most distinctive Olympic fringe development, Matchmakers Wharf in E9. Designed by award-winning architects Stock Woolstencroft, the iconic riverside development, on the northwest borders of the Olympic Park, consists of 132 studio, one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments for open market sale. Prices start from an exceptionally affordable £175,000 and homes will be ready to move in to from early March 2012.

Matchmakers Wharf is influenced by its creative East London location and has a stylish and contemporary exterior. Each home will be finished to Telford Homes’ high specification with under-floor heating, neutral décor and high quality fixtures and fittings. Kitchens have been designed by Urban Myth in on-trend Silver Cherry and Cappuccino gloss with integrated Smeg appliances. Bathrooms feature Roca bathroom suites with Hansgrohe fittings.

The majority of homes at Matchmakers Wharf have balconies or terraces allowing residents to enjoy either the expansive green open views across the River Lea and Hackney Marshes, or upper level views across the 2012 Olympic Park, around to Canary Wharf & The City skyline. Lower levels can watch the canal boats meandering up & down this well-used waterway. The surrounding waterways are all in the process of being upgraded and as well as the towpath being popular for cyclists, joggers and walkers, Matchmakers Wharf will feature four new boat moorings.

Matchmakers Wharf is perfect for anyone with a busy modern lifestyle as residents can take advantage of the 24-hour concierge service and fully-equipped residents-only gymnasium. Bicycle storage and optional car parking (subject to availability) are also provided at the scheme.

Given the development’s location in the traditionally creative London Borough of Hackney, Matchmakers Wharf will also house 49 purpose-built artists’ studios as workspace for Acme, a London based charity that provides studio space for a variety of artists.

Matchmakers Wharf is around a 15 minute walk from Homerton station on the Overground network. Alternatively, a pleasurable walk along the tow path and through the 2012 Olympic Park will take you to Stratford International Station, Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre and Stratford town centre and other stations. The development is surrounded by 300 acres of green open space with a myriad of footpaths, towpaths and cycle routes close by for those who like to enjoy the great outdoors in their spare time.

Sheena Ellwood, Sales & Marketing Director at Telford Homes commented:

“Matchmakers Wharf has already proved immensely popular with early off-plan buyers who have been attracted by the excitement of the area, the legacy of the Olympics and rejuvenation of Stratford City. It offers that rare combination of fantastic value-for-money in a great location with wide open views, world class new amenities and great transport. The new and final release of apartments is expected to generate strong interest; they will be on-sale through estate agents Cityzen (Mile End Road office) from the 24th October. As the apartments will be ready for the key final months leading up to the Games, buyers looking for a great home or investment need look no further.”
