Summertime and the living is easy
Summer is fast approaching and the warmer weather calls for being outdoors, be it in a park or by the river. To help make this a reality award winning house builder Telford Homes, has unveiled their Help to Buy Collection of homes, in two vibrant Zone 2 locations in East and South East London.
First time buyers keen to make the move this summer are able to have their property purchase backed by the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, helping to reduce their property-buying costs to more manageable levels by bringing the deposit requirements to just five percent.
The benefits of buying under this scheme are that the deposit for a home is approximately £20,000 for a one-bedroom flat, compared with the London average first-time buyer deposit of £80,000 plus. In addition, Telford Homes is also offering a range of extra incentives including a bespoke interior design service from Homewings available on selected apartments within the portfolio of developments.
Buyers keen for acres of green space will find everything they need at New Garden Quarter, on the doorstep of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. Due to complete in summer 2019, at the heart of the development will be a two acre landscaped Garden Square, ideal for relaxing and entertaining in the summer months. New Garden Quarter offers spacious light filled homes finished to the highest specification, with many homes enjoying a private balcony. Excellent amenities include a 24hr concierge service, state of the art gym, a café and nursery, along with a designated play area.
In addition to the two acres of parkland at the development, residents are also be surrounded by Olympic legacy venues at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which include the London Aquatic Centre, VeloPark alongside hockey and tennis centres. All residents at New Garden Quarter will be able to take advantage of the wealth of shopping and entertainment options on their doorstep. These include Westfield Stratford City, the largest covered shopping and leisure mall in London with over 300 shops, 70 restaurants and bars as well as a multi-screen cinema and bowling alley. Residents are also within walking distance of East Village, a lively neighbourhood destination with 25 acres of open space providing a unique offering of independent retailers, events and community activities.
Homes at New Garden Quarter start at £435,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, with a minimum deposit of £21,750 using the scheme. As an added incentive selected apartments will also be eligible to take advantage of a bespoke interior design service from Homewings, enabling them to have their home individually designed and furnished at no extra cost.
For those yearning to be by the water, Telford Homes’ Calders Wharf development offers this in abundance. With a world-class view, which inspired Canaletto in his iconic painting ‘A View of Greenwich from the River’, the development offers 21 private residential boutique homes located on the River Thames with direct views to the classical buildings of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich and the Cutty Sark. This is a truly rare opportunity to own a home in a location of this calibre under Help to Buy.
Located directly on the riverfront, Calders Wharf is inspired by the dynamism of the River Thames and the area’s strong maritime heritage. Residents have direct access onto the riverfront promenade, the charming Island Gardens offering three acres of waterfront parkland to explore and further afield Mudchute Park & Farm, one of the largest inner city farms anywhere in Europe.
Homes at Calders Wharf start at £500,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, with a minimum deposit of £25,000 using the scheme. Due to complete in 2019, Calders Wharf is an ideal location for young professionals. In addition to spacious homes, residents have quick and easy access into cobbled streets of Greenwich via the Greenwich Foot Tunnel to explore the treasure trove of artisan shops independent cafes and restaurants such as The Rivington Grill and Sticks ‘N’ Sushi.
