Guinness Homes: Two bedroom Shared Ownership apartments in Tower Hamlets

Get on the property ladder at Leaside Lock this summer

For first time buyers looking to purchase a home this summer, a recent report has revealed that a strong amenity offering is becoming as important as the homes and location itself, with buyers increasingly searching for a range of trendy coffee shops, fitness facilities and green and blue space on their doorstep. Ensuring first time buyers have the opportunity to purchase much more than just a home, Guinness Homes have recently launched a new collection of 33 two bedroom Shared Ownership apartments at Leaside Lock, boasting an impressive collection of on site amenities.

Perfect for the warmer months, the new development comes with unbeatable indoor and outdoor amenities. An exciting new hub for young professionals and city workers, there will be a broad range of new facilities on site once the development is complete – including a café, a health and fitness studio, a gym, a convenience store and co-working space.

Hellyn Fairbrother, London and South East Regional Sales Manager at Guinness Homes, comments; “Following a sell out first phase, this new collection of Shared Ownership apartments gives buyers an opportunity to be a part of an exciting new community, of all ages and backgrounds, which is growing in the heart of East London. Leaside Lock is not only impressive in its scale and ambition, but is bringing significant opportunity to buy a property in a Zone 2 hotspot, with top of the range amenities, fantastic green and blue space on the doorstep and fast connections into central London.”

Set on the banks of the River Lea, Leaside Lock in Bromley-By-Bow is a major placemaking project from Guinness Homes, ultimately delivering 965 studios, one, two and three bedroom homes – with a mix of Shared Ownership, Help to Buy and outright sale homes available. The development will wrap around a thriving central piazza, designed to cultivate a sense of community amongst residents.

Apartments at Leaside Lock are finished to a high specification throughout. Contemporary kitchens are complete with integrated Bosch appliances, while bathrooms and en suites are finished with sleek sanitaryware. Underfloor electric heating is fitted in all apartments, and all residents will have access to a podium garden. A number of blocks will have roof terraces, offering panoramic views across London from all angles.

Nearby road links offer direct journeys to London City Airport and out of the capital, while several local shopping and cultural destinations can be reached on foot or bicycle along the river towpath.
