50% sold in a month: Demand is electric for Lovell’s townhouses in Enfield

The Electric Quarter in Enfield has created a buzz with homebuyers since its launch last month; with 50% already sold, just four, four-bedroom townhouses remain for sale and 14 three-bedroom townhouses are available. Developed by Lovell Homes and situated in an increasingly popular area of North London, these stylish, modern homes represent the last chance for potential homeowners to secure a townhouse at the development.

Prices start from £474,995 and all homes are available to purchase through London Help to Buy, which means buyers need just a five per cent deposit (£23,750) to be able to buy their own home; the Government lends 40 per cent of the home’s value (£189,998) – interest-free for five years – so a mortgage for only the remaining 55 per cent (£261,247) will need to be arranged.

When complete in 2019, The Electric Quarter will also include new community facilities including shops, a library and a nursery, as well as mature landscaping with attractive tree-lined avenues throughout the development.

Simone Dhanjal, regional sales director at Lovell Homes, said: “There has been substantial demand for our new townhouses in Enfield, mainly from first-time buyers as well as those moving up the property ladder; buyers include those previously living in a shared ownership home. London Help to Buy has enabled buyers to purchase a larger home with a smaller deposit, so it’s no surprise that we’ve already sold half the homes in just a month.”

The Eight is the four-bedroom showhome; it features a smart red-brick façade offset by dark grey roof tiles and Juliet balconies to the four upper-level windows. Internally there’s 1,420 sq ft of flexible space arranged over three levels, with floor-to-ceiling heights of a minimum of 2.5 metres. A large dining room spans the full width of the rear ground floor of the house, with French doors which open out to the garden. The open plan space leads into a kitchen, while a cloakroom and additional storage are accessed from the main hallway.

On the first floor is a well-proportioned living room and the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms are on the second floor, together with a shower room. Bike storage and a parking space are located outside the front of the home.

From The Electric Quarter, navigating around town is easy; Ponders End Recreation Ground is 100 metres away, while a good range of restaurants, cafés and other amenities can be found on the high street. Enfield Retail Park, with its many furniture and DIY stores, popular restaurant chains and cinema, is within a mile of the development.

Also nearby is the Southbury Leisure Centre while Kingsmead School is a mixed secondary school and sixth form with academy status respectively. There is a number of good schools in the area, including Enfield County School, a girls’ comprehensive school (two miles away) and Lea Valley High School, Enfield’s first specialist sports college (three miles away).

If venturing into the City, Seven Sisters underground station is 4.5 miles away, providing access to King’s Cross in nine minutes and Oxford Circus in 13 minutes on the Victoria line. For road users, Junction 25 of the M25 is two miles north of the development.

From virtual to reality: New showhome launch at Trinity Walk, Woolwich

Lovell Homes has launched its first showhome to showcase its superb collection of apartments at Trinity Walk, just a mile from the new Crossrail station in Woolwich. The two-bedroom show apartment gives potential homebuyers the first opportunity to see in person the high specification of the apartments, since their launch off-plan earlier this year.

Before the opening of the showhome, visitors to Trinity Walk’s marketing suite used Virtual Reality (VR) technology to ‘walk’ around a one and two-bedroom apartment and view different specifications options. In addition, Augmented Reality (AR) was created to help buyers visualise the new homes to an even greater extent, as the technology – downloaded as an app – enables the user to view the interiors and exteriors in 3D. Due to its popularity with visitors and recent purchasers, both technologies will remain.

Jonathan Goring, managing director at Lovell, said: “Although we’ve reached a construction milestone with the showhome to view, our VR showhome will continue to be incredibly useful; not only for our homebuyers wanting to visualise the development when its complete but also for our sales team who use it as a selling tool to be able to show the different specification choices and layouts of each apartment.”

The two-bedroom showhome is located in Viotti Heights, the first building to be completed at the development which comprises one, two and three-bedroom apartments. The showhome is typical of the new homes at Trinity Walk, boasting a spacious open-plan layout. The specification in the kitchen is excellent; Symphony kitchens are available in a choice of six finishes while a stainless steel Bosch oven and integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer are included as standard.

The living and dining area provides plenty of room for large furniture. This space is complemented by large near floor-to-ceiling windows, which floods the space with light, while a door leads to a balcony which will provide views over the new linear park once complete.

Both double bedrooms are spacious, with the master benefiting from an en suite shower room. A large bathroom is accessed via the generous hallway, which is also where a laundry room is located. This flexible space has also been dressed to include an office desk.

The new homes are part of the exciting £400 million Trinity Woolwich regeneration scheme. Development partners Lovell, PA Housing Group and The Royal Borough of Greenwich are transforming three ageing estates to create a desirable yet affordable place for city living. The project has already been shortlisted for three awards in this year’s National Housing Awards 2017 which includes Best Partnership, Best Marketing Campaign and Best Digital Marketing.

The ongoing regeneration in Woolwich has already seen the delivery of new green areas, office spaces and amenities and the arrival of Crossrail in 2018 will provide quicker journeys into the centre of London. With 12 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 £355000 for a one-bedroom apartment and London Help to Buy is available on all homes priced under £600,000, which means homebuyers will be able to secure a new home at Trinity Walk with just a 5 per cent deposit. The government will lend 40 per cent of the home’s value through a five year interest-free loan, so only a mortgage for the remaining 55 per cent will need to be arranged.

To visit the new showhome and experience the innovative VR show apartments, visit the sales and marketing suite off Sandy Hill Road which is open seven days a week from 10am – 5pm. To bring Trinity Walk to life on your mobile or tablet, download the Augmented Reality (AR) app by visiting www.trinitywalk-woolwich.com.

PHM secures extensive coverage in this week’s commuter titles

We’ve seen copious coverage in this week’s commuter titles, with clients featuring in Metro Property and its additional Crossrail special, as well as Wednesday’s London Evening Standard.

Prime Place, Kensal Rise was the focus of a double page Hard Hat feature in the Metro. Wittily titled ‘This place is in its prime’, the article detailed the development’s progress: “When it is complete, Prime Place has been designed to blend in to the period housing in the surrounding streets”.

In an additional Crossrail special on Thursday, the Metro looked at how Crossrail, the biggest construction project in Europe, is set to bring the Home Counties and suburban Essex within direct reach of Central London:

The Shared Ownership homes at East City Point in Canning Town, available to buy through Latimer Homes, was featured not once, but twice due to its desirable location. When Crossrail arrives in 2019 it will benefit residents with a journey time of “10 minutes to Liverpool Street” from Canning Town. One article stated “The Zone 3 homes are well located for professionals working in the city.”

A huge regeneration project in Woolwich also featured twice as part of the supplement, Andrea said: “Trinity Walk is a collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and townhouses by Lovell Homes, a mile from the new Crossrail station in Woolwich. When Crossrail opens in 2018, Canary Wharf will be eight minutes away and Bond Street 22 minutes.”

In Wednesday’s Evening Standard we saw the result of a successful pitch for a spotlight feature on Ham, near Richmond, where Berkeley Homes has recently launched Richmond Chase. Journalist Anthea Masey writes: “The Village of Ham and its neighbour Petersham, are tucked into a great, sweeping curve on the south side of the Thames. Surrounded by green space this slice of south-west London offers a semi-rural feel that families love.”
