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

Collection of homes now available in Haringey – ideal for first time buyers

Catalyst is set to launch a brand new show apartment at The Folium on Saturday 7th August, providing a stylish setting for homeowners to get a feel for the housing association’s new North London development.

Located a five minute cycle from Muswell Hill’s popular high street, The Folium features a range of 54 one to three bedroom Shared Ownership apartments and five luxe townhouses available for private sale.

Near to Coppetts 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.

Inspired by its nature-filled surroundings, leading interior designers, Blocc, have dressed the new show apartment bringing in warm woods and splashes of greenery, offset by luxurious metallics and leathers. An open-plan kitchen/living/dining area is carefully divided with a contemporary wood panel divider, whilst a dedicated desk space makes working from home a breeze.

The bedroom features a statement wallpaper elongating the headboard, flanked by sophisticated chic black columns. Meanwhile, the spacious balcony – a feature of every apartment at The Folium – provides seating for four, ideal for having guests over.

As part of the show home launch, Catalyst is revealing two artworks by local artist Jess Albert, commissioned exclusively for The Folium. Inspired by the local flora and fauna of neighbouring Coppetts Wood, the artworks portray hybrid insects made up of native wildlife and plants.

Markus Kendall-Young, Director of Sales and Marketing (London) at Catalyst, comments: “We can’t wait to launch the show apartment at The Folium and showcase these high quality, spacious homes. Demand has already been terrific, with all three bedroom apartments now reserved, and other apartments going quickly. Our new show apartment will help to inspire even more buyers to get on to the property ladder at The Folium.”

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 apartments featuring private balconies or terraces. Perfect for enjoying the surrounding green spaces and commuting, dedicated cycle storage comes with every apartment.

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 on the Northern Line, and Bounds Green on the Piccadilly Line, provide a range of tube connections. 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.
