London Home Show Countdown: JLL
South London: The new Help to Buy hotspot
From Wandsworth to Greenwich, Deptford to Bromley, JLL’s Help to Buy portfolio covers a number of thriving South London neighbourhoods. With locations to suit all lifestyles, choose from a mix of foodie hotspots with bars and restaurants on the doorstep to tranquil waterside locations surrounded by well-kept parks, all conveniently connected to Central London.
With a number of homes located in the quiet, well-located South Westerly neighbourhood of Wandsworth, our collection of apartments at Bronze, Osiers Square and Heathfield Square are the perfect sanctuary from inner-city life. Be within touching distance of Southside shopping centre, home to a local Waitrose and Planet Organic. The Old York Road has recently witnessed the arrival of the award-winning Gail’s Bakery selling minimal fuss sourdough loaves, crumbly cheese and chive scones and steaming lattes. With new restaurants cropping up at The Ram Quarter, Wandsworth locals are never short of choice for local hang-outs from Café Fleur to the dog-friendly Victorian pub The Cat’s Back, Italian delicatessen Marco Polo and gastropub The Alma. Wimbledon Farmer’s Market is also a 30 minute walk away and a great spot for picking up fresh produce from Celtic baker’s sourdough loaves to fruit and veg from Perry Court Farm, there’s something for everyone.
Bronze is a rare find, combining urban living with easy access to green spaces, being adjacent to King George’s Park and nearby to Wandsworth Common and Wandsworth Park. All perfect spots for a dog walk, post-work run, a competitive round of tennis or a family picnic in the sun. Osiers Way, a collection of apartments also available with Help to Buy, is located just minutes from Wandsworth Park and between Wandsworth Town and Putney. Built to maximise space and sunlight, each new home here includes a private balcony or terrace, perfect for catching some sunshine and creating an urban garden. Alternatively, the Shared Ownership homes at Heathfield Square are also just a short walk from Wandsworth Common and in a prime spot for peaceful riverside walks.
Broadside Apartments is a collection of riverside homes in Greenwich, appealing to commuters working in Canary Wharf and Central London, wishing to escape the bustle of the working week. The Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich DLR is just a 15 minute walk away, from which Canary Wharf can be reached in 13 minutes. Nearby Greenwich Park’s expansive 183 acres are home to the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum, Meridian Line and plenty of landscaped gardens to relax in, the ideal spot for a family day out. Spot local wildlife from Fallow deer to woodpeckers, then have an English cream tea at the quaint Pavilion café after a long day of exploring and tired soles.
Deptford Foundry is a collection of one, two and three bedroom homes all boasting balconies or terraces with views across South East London, making alfresco dining in summer time that bit more achievable. Nearby you’ll find an assortment of independent cafés, bars and the infamous Deptford Market Yard with favourites including Little Nan’s cocktail bar and Taproom SE8, serving up real ale and craft beer to locals. Deptford and New Cross stations have direct connections to London Bridge St Pancras International and other major stations, so rest easy you’re well connected to central London.
Shared Ownership also offers the chance to own in South London within sought-after locations on London’s commuter belt, with schemes in Lewisham and Bromley forming part of JLL’s South London portfolio. The apartments at Campshill, Lewisham (available to 55 year olds and over) are adjacent to Lewisham Park and within strolling distance of the bustling Highstreet. The Elms is a collection of apartments and duplexes situated within the highly sought after location of Beckenham, nearby to several mainline stations with connections to central London in 30 minutes.
