PARKSIDE AND WATERSIDE LONDON LIVING AT TELFORD HOMES’ THE BOATYARD
Inspired by its waterside location and parkside setting, Telford Homes is launching its latest residential development, THE BOATYARD, consisting of two residential buildings – The Boathouse and The Clubhouse – on Cotall Street and Stainsby Road, Poplar London, E14. Comprised of 75 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, The Boatyard offers fantastic views of Bartlett Park, the Limehouse Cut, Canary Wharf and beyond.
Located within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Poplar is a key regeneration area which continues to attract buyers in search of affordable properties within a short distance of London’s key financial hubs and major shopping destinations. The area is set to become even more desirable with Chrisp Street Market receiving an £100m investment to transform the building into a bustling new destination with new shopping, cultural, leisure, commercial, and health and fitness facilities.
The Boatyard offers the best of contemporary urban design in an age-old London setting, along London’s oldest canal dating from the 18th Century. Overlooking Bartlett Park and the Limehouse Cut, residents will be able to enjoy a waterside lifestyle with wide-stretches of parkland to explore.
The interiors been designed to maximise light, comfort and views with all of the features required for modern living. Each stylish new apartment includes fully fitted kitchens by renowned London designer Urban Myth, integrated Smeg appliances and bathrooms with bespoke cabinetry, walk-in showers equipped with chrome fixtures and porcelain and ceramic tiling, as well as under-floor heating in all rooms. The Boatyard features high quality security systems with video entry phones to all apartments, CCTV in common areas and bicycle storage.
Residents of The Boathouse will benefit from a café on the ground-floor of the development adding to the local culinary offering at the nearby Limehouse Basin which includes Italian restaurant La Figa, Indian cuisine at Veranda and Gordon Ramsey’s The Narrow.
The Boatyard’s location is a major draw as it is a short distance from some of London’s most popular neighbourhoods. Canary Wharf, a key employment district and the new leading luxury quarter, is just a 15 minute walk or less than 10 minutes by DLR offering a wide and eclectic range of shops, restaurants and bars. Stratford, home to Westfield Stratford City is only 7 minutes by DLR and fashionable Shoreditch is under 20 minutes away.
Poplar has benefitted from the wider investment into East London in recent years including £1bn of investments from the 2012 Olympic Games and the opening of Westfield Stratford City, which have both changed the global perception of London’s East End.
David Campbell, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Telford Homes, comments:
“It is such a rare opportunity to find a development like The Boatyard which benefits from waterside living, superb views of Canary Whard and a parkside address within a short distance of the Capital’s key business, retail and leisure districts. The area as a whole is undergoing considerable regeneration which will contribute to Poplar’s long-term appeal. With rental yields in excess of 5% we are expecting The Boatyard to be just as popular with investors, first time buyers and other owner/occupiers.”
The Limehouse Cut is the oldest canal in London and provides a pleasant waterside walk or cycle between the Limehouse Basin in the west and the River Lea to the east. Alongside this historical path one can see the first illuminated clock face in England at St Anne’s Church and the world’s largest tide mills at Three Mills. Flowing into the River Thames, the canal is also home to fascinating wildlife habitats and attracts herons and kingfishers among other beautiful species.
The Boatyard is ideally situated close to excellent transport links connecting to central London and beyond. Langdon Park DLR is a 10 minute walk from the development, whereas Bromley-by-Bow tube station on the District and Hammersmith and City line and Canary Wharf tube station on the Jubilee line are both just over a 20 minute walk, providing fast links to the City of London and Liverpool Street in 11 minutes.
The Boatyard is also near the A11 Bow Road and A13 East India Dock Road and is superbly located for easy access by car to Canary Wharf, Stratford, Bow, Mile End and Greenwich via the Blackwall Tunnel. For international travel, the DLR offers connections from The Boatyard to London City Airport in 17 minutes and King Cross St Pancras in 30 minutes.
Prices start from £240,000 for a one-bedroom apartment with first completions expected in spring 2015.
