London and Quadrant: Spacious Shared Ownership Homes in East London

Providing first time buyers with the opportunity to purchase a spacious home close to London’s business district, L&Q has released a duplex apartment and a collection of three bedroom townhouses through Shared Ownership, at Lansbury Square, a popular development offering contemporary homes in central Poplar.

Located close to both Canary Wharf and the City, the two and three bedroom homes exceed the Mayor of London’s minimum space standards by 40 – 60%. Set across three floors, the three bedroom townhouses offer the space for a family to flourish, with the top floor sporting an exclusive master bedroom and bathroom, providing a peaceful parent’s retreat. For outdoor space, families can enjoy balconies on both the first and second floor.

Meanwhile, for the growing numbers of young Brits open to purchasing a home with a friend or sibling, the two bedroom duplex apartment at Lansbury Square offers a brilliant option. With two double bedrooms on separate floors, each with a dedicated bathroom, and a sleek open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, buyers can benefit from both privacy and a shared entertainment space.

Claire Brenlund, Assistant Director of Sales for L&Q, comments, “Many presume that purchasing in London means compromising on space, especially if you’re a first time buyer. However, through our Shared Ownership scheme, buyers can often afford to purchase a spacious home, without leaving the capital. Through the part-buy, part-rent option, for homes at Lansbury Square, buyers only need a deposit of £14,813 for a two bedroom duplex, or £15,250 for a three bedroom house.”

High specification homes feature spacious open-plan living rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies. Kitchens include integrated Zanussi appliances, with oak worktops alongside modern cabinetry, and oak laminate flooring. The high quality bathrooms feature ROCA sanitary fittings, with stone ceramic floor tiles and recessed LED downlighting. Innovative tech additions include a video door entry system and Sky + TV cabling, whilst dedicated cycle storage makes it easy for residents to enjoy a greener commute.

As well as a business district, neighbouring Canary Wharf has a thriving social scene with over 200 shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Close by green spaces include Langdon Park, Bartlett Park and Jolly’s Green, whilst the expansive Mile End Park is under 20 minutes away by foot.

Families can enjoy easy access to good schools, with two primary schools – Lansbury Lawrence Primary School and St Saviour’s School (OFSTED rated outstanding) – and secondary school Langdon Park School all under 0.3 miles from the development.

Langdon Park DLR station is a two minute walk away, with a journey time of six minutes into Canary Wharf. For tube services, Bromley-by-Bow offers District and Hammersmith & City services, taking 12 minutes to Bank, 20 minutes to Oxford Circus and 27 minutes to Embankment. There are also quick connections to major roads including the A12, the East India Dock Road and the A11.

In addition to the duplex apartments, a collection of two bedroom single-storey apartments provide a further affordable option at Lansbury Square, also available through Shared Ownership.
