  • Telford Homes’ The Lock at Greenford Quay provides a green sanctuary, with close proximity to the city
  • First time buyers can utilise the Help To Buy scheme, meaning they only need to pay a 5% deposit, when reserving an apartment by December 2022


With Love Parks Week kicking off today, Telford Homes celebrates the vitality of outdoor space by inviting buyers to discover the perfect home to unlock the benefits of living near green space, without having to compromise on proximity to the city or the vibrant London lifestyle.

The World Health organisation recommends global access to green space due to a range of health benefits [1] – including longer life expectancy, better cognitive function, and mitigation against mental health issues [2]. A recent survey also found that 86% of adults said that parks and green spaces enhance their quality of life [3].

Located within the vibrant new waterfront neighbourhood of Greenford Quay, Telford Homes’ The Lock development provides a variety of lush open spaces right on resident’s doorsteps, whilst also having quick and easy access to the City via the Central Line. With high-specification, stunning one, two and three bedroom apartments still available, discover the abundance of greenery that residents can enjoy:

Horsenden Hill

Bordered by the Grand Union Canal, Horsenden Hill is a beautiful area of ancient woodland, grassland, ponds and hedgerows with plenty of walking and cycle paths to explore nature. With unrivalled views from the hill’s summit, Horsenden Hill provides residents with the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Brent River Park

The Brent River Park is a crucial Greater London conservation site, which is home to a beautiful array of wildflowers and species along the meandering river bank. With a large part of Ealing’s capital walking ring route running through the Brent River Park, it makes for a wonderful, secluded environment for a weekend stroll.

Northala Fields

Also in close proximity to the development, residents can marvel at the landmark Northala Fields. Having been created out of waste from the construction of the new Wembley Stadium and White City shopping centre, the now fun and accessible recreational park is one of London’s most significant park developments.

With large conical hills to climb, and plenty of play area space, Northala Fields is a great place to enjoy time with family.

Private Roof Terrace and Landscaped Gardens

Residents at The Lock benefit from indoor-outdoor living and access to outdoor space from the serenity of their own home. All apartments within the development feature a private balcony or terrace offering views across the Grand Union Canal and up to Horsenden Hill. A beautifully landscaped garden with innovative seating areas also sits between the two buildings that form The Lock.

The wider Greenford Quay neighbourhood also offers garden spaces, sculptural play areas and a striking amphitheatre formed along the canal. There are also plans in place to create allotments, allowing residents to grow their own fruit and vegetables from home.

Young couple, Akram and Shravani, were looking for the perfect location to raise their family and found the ideal home in their two-bedroom apartment at The Lock. They say:

Greenford Quay is a lovely area to raise our family. There’s so much outdoor space to explore – we love going for walks in the ancient woods and love having the canal so close by. We also know it’s a really safe community and can allow our child to play outdoors in the evening.”

In total, the masterplan will deliver 2,118 high quality homes over eight hectares of renovated waterfront land, as well as over 20,500sqm of commercial space. Featuring a new canal footbridge, healthcare centre, restaurants and leisure facilities, and soon-to-open on-site primary school, with award-winning nursery, Puzzle Monkey; residents can expect an exciting new community. Residents at The Lock also benefit from a host of on-site amenities including a concierge service and fully equipped on-site gym. The 16-hour concierge also features a convenient ‘flexible working zone’, complete with charging ports – providing residents everything needed for a contemporary London lifestyle.

With the help of the London Help To Buy scheme, first time buyers will only need a 5% deposit and can loan 40% of the purchase price from the government. Your mortgage will make up the rest. The equity loan is interest-free for the first five years, leaving you time to pay off the price of your dream home over time. Reserve an apartment by 31st October 2022 to use the London Help to Buy Equity Loan. The scheme ends in March 2023.

Prospective buyers can visit The Lock on 30th July to participate in a cooking demonstration with a professional chef and speak to our independent financial advisors for everything you need to know about getting a foot on the property ladder and the Help To Buy scheme.
