Step onto the property ladder in the capital at Crest Nicholson's Dylon Works
Tuesday 19th September 2017
Located directly opposite Lower Sydenham station, Crest Nicholson’s Dylon Works provides the perfect location for commuters looking to get onto the property ladder in this popular Zone 4 location. This contemporary development comprises a collection of 223 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, each with a private parking space, and access to communal landscaped gardens in the centre of the properties.
All apartments are available to purchase on London’s Help to Buy scheme and homes at Dylon Works benefit from a high-quality finish, which is unusual for some first time first time buyer properties in the capital. This popular scheme enables buyers to apply for an equity loan of up to 40% on properties up to the value of £600,000. Since the development launched less than a year ago, 96% of the homes have been bought by first time buyers, and almost all have used the Help to Buy scheme.
Each apartment at Dylon Works has been designed to create a sleek interior space, with carefully selected fixtures and fittings throughout. Full-height windows in the apartments flood homes with natural light, and most homes benefit from private balconies or terraces to provide some sought after outdoor space.
The up-and-coming location of Lower Sydenham has plenty to offer residents, with a varied selection of independent restaurants, bars and cafes in the surrounding area. Weekends can be spent exploring the leafy suburbs of South East London, with Sydenham Hill Wood, Dulwich Park and the Horniman Museum all within easy reach of the development.
The collection of homes boasts fantastic transport links, with direct trains from Lower Sydenham station to London Bridge in just 16 minutes, and 25 minutes to Cannon Street. In addition, the London Overground line serves nearby Sydenham station, which provides easy access to East London hotspots such Shoreditch and Dalston, as well as Canada Water.
Homes at Dylon Works are ready to move into now, with prices starting from £379,995 for a one bedroom apartment, or just £227,997. Find out more about this exciting new development by visiting https://www.crestnicholson.com/dylonworks or calling 020 3437 1264.

FIRST STEPS is committed to the promotion of all types of accessible housing in London. We want to make the journey into your new home as simple as possible and to be sure that you know what to look for when searching for an affordable accessible home. All developments must be rated according to the type of accessibility they offer. That is why we have the following guide, based on the information provided in the Mayor of London's Accessible Housing Register, to help you understand what the rating of each property actually means.
A - Wheelchair Accessible Throughout
Meets the design standards from the Wheelchair Housing Design Guide which superseded the Housing Corporation wheelchair design standards. These properties have been designed to meet latest wheelchair accessible housing design standards, offering extra space and full access to all rooms and facilities. This standard provides more space than previous wheelchair housing design guidance and also ensures that all rooms are accessibly. In view of the high density of new build housing stock in London, the parking features have been excluded from this category. This will enable wheelchair accessible homes built above ground floor level to be categorised as such.
B - Wheelchair Accessible essential rooms
Complies with the Wheelchair Housing Design Guidance within the Housing Corporation Scheme Development Standards. Properties designed of adapted to provide access for wheelchair users to essential facilities of the property (that is, a bedroom, bathroom, toilet, living room and kitchen). Other rooms in the house such as additional bedrooms or bathrooms may not be wheelchair accessible.
C - Lifetime Homes
Meets the space standards of the Lifetime Homes developed by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Designed to meet the space standards of Lifetime Homes. Main features include a level approach/entrance and wider doorways. This category will capture all new general needs housing built to Lifetime Homes standards. Properties achieving this category will not necessarily meet all Lifetime Homes design guidance as the LAHR framework does not assess features other than space and access. Properties may have an internal flight of stairs. If so, these will be wide enough to accommodate future provision of a stair lift subject to technical feasibility.
D - Easy Access
Compatible with the design standards in Mobility Standard Housing (1974) produced by the DoE and Housing Corporation Scheme Development Standards (pre-1999) and Part M of Building Regulations (2000). The main features of these properties include a level approach to the entrance, wider doorways and more space than in general needs housing. These properties may also have an internal flight of stairs and if so, there is enough space to accommodate future provision of a stair lift subject to technical feasibility.
E - Step Free
No published access design guidance. These are properties that are considered general needs housing but have a level approach/entrance into the property and throughout. Properties in this category that have an internal flight of stair will be likely to accommodate future provision of a stair lift subject to technical feasibility.
E+. Minimal steps
No published access design guidance. Properties that do not meet any accessibly housing design guidance and have a limited number of steps to enter the property. Properties in this category will have no more than four steps to access the front door and are likely to be ground floor properties or properties in a block with a lift and a small number of communal or property front door steps.
F - General Needs
General needs housing does not meet any of the above criteria. Properties in this category will have more than four steps or a ramp access that is steeper than 1:10 to access the property front door. These properties should be marketed with the number of steps to access the property as this will provide an additional factor for helping people choosing what to bid for.
The Accessible Housing Register captures the essential information which determines the category awarded to a property. Additional information is also collected. This includes:
- Details of major adaptations such as level access showers and stair lifts
- Private garden or balcony
- Proximity to local shops
- Proximity to public transport
