Help to Buy now available at Copley Hanwell W7, Ealing

Help to Buy has launched at Alton Court, enabling more homebuyers to secure a contemporary, stylish London property in Ealing with a deposit of just 5%. The Help to Buy scheme means that the government will lend 40% of the home’s value – interest free for the first five years – so a mortgage for only 55% of the full amount will need to be arranged.

The homes at Alton Court provide the first opportunity for buyers to be a part of Copley Hanwell W7, the flagship regeneration and development by Broadway Living; Help to Buy is available for 20 houses and apartments, while a further 13 homes are for Shared Ownership. Each home is designed to Broadway Living’s high-quality specification and premium finish, showcased in the two-bedroom show apartment which has recently opened for viewings by appointment.

The development at Copley Hanwell W7 will involve eight phases, each with its own distinct sense of identity. On completion, the neighbourhood will offer a collection of refurbished and newly-built homes providing a range of tenures. Whether a refurbished or new home, each will offer a contemporary design and a high specification, and will be set within attractive public space.

Broadway Living is a pioneering developer of high-quality, mixed-tenure homes which is wholly owned by Ealing Council. Representing a new approach for council-led development, Broadway Living’s innovative model means that, using the profits made on private sales and rental properties, it can deliver more affordable housing for Ealing’s residents. The developer’s plans for a diverse range of homes across Ealing will meet the needs and aspirations of a range of residents and buyers with desirable, contemporary places to live.

Ealing is considered one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the capital. Conveniently located within easy reach of the centre of London, Hanwell itself offers over eight sq km of green space and is home to a mix of cafes, pubs and eateries to suit all tastes and budgets.

Castle Bar Park train station is situated at the centre of the development, offering direct services to London Paddington in 22 minutes. Copley Hanwell W7 is just a ten-minute cycle from Ealing Broadway station, which is connected by the Overground, District and Central Line train services, while Hanwell station, along with West Ealing and Ealing Broadway, will offer high-speed Crossrail services into central London and beyond from 2018.

The homes at Alton Court will be ready for occupation from Q1 2018, and are priced from £339,000. To visit the showhome at Alton Court or to find out more about Broadway Living and its developments across Ealing, visit www.broadwayliving.co.uk.

Evening Standard Awards

PHM’s clients scoop five awards at the London Evening Standard New Homes Awards

The London Evening Standard New Homes Awards is always a highlight in the calendar for property industry professionals, and last Friday’s awards ceremony did not disappoint. Property House Marketing celebrated two award wins as well as three highly commended accolades, for the entries we wrote and designed on behalf of our clients back in February.

The New Homes Awards are now in their 26th year and recognise a range of new homes across the property spectrum – from first-time buyer apartments to one-off luxury mansions, and high-rise developments in city centres to countryside conversions. What makes this competition different is that the entries are decided by a panel of property experts with the help of Evening Standard readers with recent buying experience.

The ceremony was introduced by the paper’s new editor George Osborne and hosted by comedian Romesh Ranganathan. There were 13 prizes announced, with PHM’s clients receiving recognition for the following projects:

  • St Joseph’s Gate (The Chapel) by Berkeley Oxford & Chiltern won ‘Best Conversion’ as well as highly commended in the ‘Best Luxury Home’ category
  • Abell & Cleland by Berkeley Central London won ‘Best Luxury Home’
  • Woodberry Down by Berkeley North East London was highly commended for ‘Best Regeneration Project’
  • Fitzroy Gate by St James was highly commended for ‘Best London Home’

If you’ve recently completed a development or project of which you are particularly proud, now is the opportune moment to speak to us about a submission into the What House? Awards as the deadline is just weeks away.

If you’re still undecided as to whether you should be entering your developments or projects for awards this year, read our blog explaining the three reasons why awards are a valuable addition to your marketing strategy.

Terrific townhouses now available at Trinity Walk, Woolwich

A range of contemporary three-bedroom townhouses, located just a mile from the future Crossrail station in Woolwich, is now available for sale at Trinity Walk by Lovell Homes. This milestone follows on from the successful off-plan launch of the apartments earlier this year with over 65% homes in the first two buildings released already sold; many through London Help to Buy.

Trinity Walk is the first phase of a £400 million Trinity Woolwich regeneration scheme being created by development partners Lovell, asra Housing Group and The Royal Borough of Greenwich. Three ageing housing estates are being transformed into a desirable place for city living.

Jonathan Goring, managing director at Lovell Homes, said: “It’s an exciting time to be building new homes in Woolwich. The development is shaping up at such a pace that we’re opening our first showhome later this month which will enable homebuyers to see first-hand the spacious rooms and high specification a home at Trinity Walk will include. Previously, our Virtual Reality (VR) ‘immersive dome’ has been instrumental in helping potential purchasers envision the new homes.

“The technology enables homebuyers the chance to ‘walk’ around the apartments while viewing different specification options, and will continue to do so when the showhome is launched.”

The development comprises one, two and three-bedroom apartments and a collection of three and four-bedroom townhouses, a selection will be wheelchair adapted; all completed to the same high-quality specification.

The ongoing regeneration in Woolwich has already led to the delivery of new green areas, office space and amenities. The arrival of Crossrail in 2018 will provide quicker journeys into the centre of London; with 12 train services an hour, passengers from Woolwich will be able to reach Canary Wharf in eight minutes, Liverpool Street in 14 minutes and Bond Street in just 22 minutes.

Prices start from £650,000 for a three-bedroom townhouse. The one and two-bedroom apartments are priced from £320,000. To experience the in

novative Virtual Reality show apartments, visit Lovell Homes’ sales and marketing suite off Brookhill Road (SE18 6UU), which is open seven days a week from 10am – 5pm. Customers can bring Trinity Walk to life on their mobile or tablet by downloading the Augmented Reality (AR) app on www.trinitywalk-woolwich.com.
