Help to Buy homes launched at Clapham House in South West London
First time buyer apartments in Lambeth available through JLL and Savills
Giving first time buyers a rare chance to put down roots in the heart of Clapham, one of South West London’s most affluent areas, Clapham House is a collection of 50 one and two bedroom apartments on Clapham High Street – all available for London Help to Buy.
On the market through JLL and Savills, demand for the new homes has been high. Over 80% of the homes are now reserved, off-plan, following their launch in August, with three new show flats now ready to view.
Set within a newly reimagined high street block, which was once the laundry building for the Savoy Hotel, Clapham House offers the highest in specification. Taking design seriously, the developers, Lipman Properties, have created a collection of homes that are perfect for city living.
Making an entrance, homes are accessed via a double ceiling height lobby with dramatic liquid metal ceiling panels. A clever ‘virtual concierge service’ is a convenient, high-tech addition, where deliveries can be left any time and stored securely in digital lockers, to be accessed by residents at a time to suit them.
Inside, the apartments come with a distinctive Manhattan loft-inspired feel. All homes feature interior crittall-style doors and windows, helping maximise light within the homes. Open plan kitchen/living/dining rooms feature bespoke Italian designed kitchens, while the sleek bathrooms have terrazzo flooring and striking black sanitaryware. Most two bedroom homes come with both a family bathroom and en-suite off the master bedroom.
A must for any city dweller, all properties have USB sockets and digital programmable heating systems – with the added luxury of air conditioning to all homes. All homes have two allocated bike storage spaces in a secure underground bike store. Residents will also benefit from a three year Zip Car membership and a secure basement storage locker included with each home.
Adam Lipman, Director of Lipman Properties, comments: “We are delighted to be able to offer homes that are accessible to first time buyers in Clapham, where the average price of a flat in 2020 was nearly £600,000 according to Rightmove. What’s more, we believe that first time buyers should never have to compromise on quality, which is why we’ve invested in the highest quality spec for the homes and communal areas – creating homes that are fit for modern life.”
JLL National Director, Peter Gibney comments: “JLL are delighted to be agents of Clapham House. We know this area has exceptionally high demand given its proximity to central London and it’s vibrant, established neighbourhoods and communities. The unprecedented demand we have experienced at Clapham House reflects the ever-growing need for well-priced and designed homes in attractive central and South West London neighbourhoods.”
Nick Vaughan, Head of Greater London Residential Development at Savills, says: “Clapham House brings the best of design, specification and amenity to one of South West London’s most established locations. With all apartments available under the Help to Buy scheme, it provides an excellent opportunity for a wide range of buyers to find a home in this vibrant area. Savills are delighted to work alongside Lipman Properties and build on the incredibly strong interest we have seen so far.”
Set on Clapham High Street, Clapham House is a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Clapham Old Town, which offers a plethora of restaurants, cafés, bars and boutiques. For lovers of the great outdoors, Clapham Common is just a nine minute cycle away. Located a three minute and seven minute walk from Clapham North and Stockwell stations respectively, Clapham House is exceptionally well placed for transport into central London.
Prices at Clapham House start from £349,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £475,000 for a two bedroom home. All homes are available for London Help to Buy. Visit chsw9.com
