London and Quadrant: Reshaping South West London at Wandsworth Exchange
Wandsworth, the city’s greenest borough, not only benefits from the cheapest council tax in the UK, but also has a staggering 45 conservation areas* – with city professionals and young families alike flocking to the riverside neighbourhood for the leafy streets and convenient transport links.
With average home prices in Wandsworth projected to increase 15% in the next five years*, Shared Ownership at Wandsworth Exchange by L&Q is offering first time buyers the chance to get onto the property ladder, with all one bedroom homes in the first launch already under offer.
Lucy Chitty, Sales and Customer Service Director for L&Q’s South Region, comments: “Efficient transport links, leafy parks and excellent schools mean Wandsworth has long been on the wish-list of many London home-buyers. With the launch of a multi-million pound regeneration programme to upgrade local infrastructure and public spaces, demand is only going to grow.
“Wandsworth Exchange is nestled right in the centre of town, just a stone’s throw from the local high street, offering all the essentials and much more – from cinema to sushi. Less than a mile away lies the beautiful King George’s park, while a short walk will take residents to Wandsworth Pier, offering a pleasant river commute into the city centre.”
Designed by award winning architects Boon Brown, Wandsworth Exchange is located opposite the stately town hall, with particular care taken to ensure the development’s colouring and layout compliment the stately civic building, alongside the rest of Wandsworth High Street.
Homes feature a contemporary, open-plan living space ideal for entertaining, with fully integrated kitchen appliances including a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. 100% wool carpets feature across all bedrooms, with fitted mirrored wardrobes to master bedrooms. Each apartment also benefits from a private balcony or terrace and private cycle storage.
The development will improve public use of the Old Burial Ground on Garratt Lane, with the previously unused green space housing a new pedestrian path – providing a direct route from the open space to the High Street – as well as additional seating throughout.
Wandsworth Exchange will also feature retail and commercial units on the ground floor – including a brand new public library – adding yet more variety to Wandsworth’s already-bustling town centre.
The development is 0.5 miles (approximately an eight-minute walk) from Wandsworth Town rail station, from where the City of London’s Bank Station is a 29-minute journey – amounting to a speedy door-to-door journey of 37 minutes. Other commuter hotspots, Waterloo and Clapham Junction, are under 20 minutes and 15 minutes away respectively.
For those seeking a more scenic way of commuting, Wandsworth Exchange is a 15-minute walk to Wandsworth Riverside Quarter Pier which offers Thames Clipper services to destinations including Chelsea, Westminster and Embankment.
In addition to its commuter-friendly location, Wandsworth Exchange is located in one of London’s most idyllic suburban hotspots, within walking distance of three large parks, including Wandsworth Common. Just a 10-minute walk from the river Thames, the picturesque River Wandle is also less than 100m away.
Prices start from £161,875 for a 25% share of a two bedroom apartment (FMV £647,500).
