Catalyst New Homes: Shared Ownership at The Folium, North London

Collection of homes launched in Haringey – ideal for first time buyers

Home to the London landmark Alexandra Palace, green spaces like Highgate Wood and a buzzing independent high street to rival any urban village, Muswell Hill has been awarded runner-up for London in The Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide 2021.

Offering a rare collection of new build apartments and townhouses just a five minute cycle from the high street, Catalyst has recently launched The Folium; a collection of 54 one to three bedroom Shared Ownership apartments and five luxe townhouses available for private sale.

Near to Coppets Wood, a historic 36-acre conservation site, as well as Bluebell Woods, Muswell Hill Playing Fields and Halliwack Recreation Ground, The Folium offers fantastic access to green space in the capital; now at the top of buyers’ wish list.

Never a more timely opportunity to explore the area, Muswell Hill is coming out of lockdown with a flurry of activity. Alexandra Palace has announced a busy programme of live cultural events across summer, Everyman Muswell Hill has re-opened for cinema screenings, and the high street is awash with shopping and dining opportunities.

Markus Kendall-Young, Director of Sales and Marketing, comments: “After such a long period of seeing restaurants closed, shops bordered up and cultural centres with their lights off, there is an undeniable thirst to get out and explore. Muswell Hill’s combination of fantastic amenities and green space has made this North London village more popular than ever; previously a bit of a secret amongst local residents, and now firmly on the London map.”

Designed as a natural extension of the area, The Folium is enveloped in green landscaping and mature planting, with two Greens providing diverse outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy. All homes also offer a private outdoor area, with townhouses featuring private gardens and apartments offering private balconies or terraces. Perfect for enjoying the surrounding green spaces and commuting, dedicated cycle storage comes with every apartment and house.

Every home is finished to a premium specification, including top-of-the-range fixtures and fittings throughout. Kitchens feature high quality integrated appliances, and bathrooms are fitted with contemporary sanitaryware.

Well-connected for residents to explore London and beyond, Muswell Hill has good bus connections, with the W7 taking commuters to Finsbury Park, where there’s tube and train services into central London. Nearby Alexandra Palace train station provides a train into Moorgate in just 20 minutes, whilst East Finchley and Highgate tube stations connect residents to the Northern line. All townhouses also include two private parking spaces, whilst many apartments include one parking space.

Ideal for families, The Folium is moments from Coppett’s Wood Primary School and Eden Primary School.
