Terrific townhouses in Zone 4 available with London Help to Buy

Combining high-quality, contemporary design with an up-and-coming London location and exceptional value for money, The Townhouse Collection at Trinity Walk by Lovell Homes provides a rare opportunity for first-time buyers to purchase a new house in London. With prices starting from just £590,000 and the three and four-bedroom houses now available with London Help to Buy, even more buyers can call this exciting development home.

Using the London Help to Buy equity loan scheme, a deposit of just five per cent (£29,500 on a £590,000 home) is required. The government will lend up to 40 per cent of the purchase price (£236,000), interest-free for the first five years, meaning a mortgage of only the remaining 55 per cent (£324,500) needs to be arranged.

In addition to the houses, only a few one-bedroom apartments remain, which are also available to purchase through London Help to Buy with prices starting from just £335,000. Special incentives are now on offer, and both the houses and apartments will be ready to move into before the end of the year, if a homebuyer reserves before the end of October.

Each townhouse has a modern, flexible layout. The three-bedroom showhome incorporates a sleek open-plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor; the kitchen cabinetry is by Symphony kitchens and appliances, which are included as standard, comprise a steel Bosch oven, an integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The living room on the first floor extends onto a private two-tiered terrace leading to a communal podium garden with mature planting. There is also a double bedroom, along with a family bathroom featuring Kohler fittings, full-height tiling and chrome mixer taps. The second floor comprises two further double bedrooms, and a ‘Jack ‘n’ Jill’ shower room.

As well as a designated parking space in the secure undercroft car park for each house, bicycle storage is also available.

The ongoing regeneration in Woolwich has already led to the delivery of new green areas and amenities. The arrival of Crossrail in 2019 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. From Woolwich Arsenal station, London City Airport is only two stops away on the DLR; ideal for trips abroad.
