We’ve heard and read a lot about how the arrival of Crossrail will impact the property market. With the first Crossrail line set to open next month, entering passenger service between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, Essex, it seems those who have bought along the line are finally set to reap the benefits. However, there’s still time to invest in a Crossrail home, even on a budget!
We’ve found a selection of homes available through Help to Buy and shared ownership that enjoy ideal locations nearby to upcoming Crossrail stations. Buyers will find themselves ideally positioned for fast-track travel in and around the capital, and as a homeowner be able to benefit from growth on the value of their property too.
Trinity Walk is a distinctive new neighbourhood of stylish one, two and three-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom townhouses, located just a mile from the new Crossrail station in Woolwich. With 12 services an hour, homebuyers from Woolwich will be able to reach Canary Wharf in eight minutes, Liverpool Street in 14 minutes and Bond Street in just 22 minutes, when The Elizabeth Line opens later this year. Each home is completed to the same high specification with a private outdoor area and to top it off, London Help to Buy is available which means buyers only need a 5% deposit.
Enjoying a more rural location, So Resi Wokingham will be just a ten-minute journey away from Reading’s Crossrail station which is opening in December 2019, ideal for commuting homebuyers. The development comprises a new collection of one and two-bedroom apartments and two to four-bedroom homes in Wokingham which are available to purchase through shared ownership with So Resi. The homes are built to a high specification, with spacious living areas and stylish fittings adding a touch of luxury.
