Stunning sky garden the jewel in the crown for homeowner who swaps old for new at Park Heights, Stockwell
Matthew Lumb and Catherine Ross had been living together in Matthew’s Stockwell apartment for a number of years when they decided that it was time to buy their first home together.
So, the couple bought a two-bedroom apartment at Park Heights. Their apartment – purchased for £550,000 – is on the sixth floor and includes an en suite shower room to the master bedroom and a balcony.
“Buying this apartment makes practical sense in so many ways,” says Catherine, a copywriter for a large hotel chain. “I’ve now taken my first steps on the property ladder, and Matthew has upgraded to a smarter property and is now able to rent out his former apartment.”
Matthew’s previous apartment was in a block built over 70 years ago, so this time around he was drawn to the idea of moving into a newly built home.
“This apartment is much bigger and brighter than our old one as well as being much more economical to live in,” says Matthew, a freelance photographer. “We also don’t have to worry about repairs as everything is new.”
“It is very flash with all the latest mod cons – including touch screen ovens,” he continues. “Network has paid a lot of attention to detail and my apartment is finished to a really high standard.”
“We also love the fact that we are the first people to live in this apartment,” says Catherine.
The couple especially enjoy relaxing in the stunning residents’ sky garden on the 20th floor. “Since we moved in, we’ve been up there many times,” says Catherine. “It is tremendous – especially on a nice day or a warm evening when you can see for miles. It really is the cherry on the cake.”
Park Heights also has its own 24-hour concierge, which the couple find extremely useful. “The customer service is fantastic and it’s great to know that they will take care of deliveries,” says Matthew.
“Network Homes has obviously invested a lot in this regeneration and the area is really changing for the better as a result,” he adds. “Park Heights is a key part of that change: it is a very elegant building that’s totally transformed the look and feel of this part of Stockwell.”
