London Home Show Countdown: Peabody

A Peabody home is more than just a place to live

Whether you are a first time buyer stepping into your first new flat, or a well accustomed home buyer reaching for your next rung up or even down the property ladder, without a doubt the excitement that comes with moving into a new home never expires. Although exciting, with such dramatic changes taking place in the way people are now choosing to live and work, our homes are now having to offer more than just a place to live. With almost 160 years of experience delivering homes, Peabody knows a thing or two about homes that are affordable and offer something for everyone – from bright and spacious city apartments to generously sized family homes, we strive to create places and spaces that enhance people’s lives.

Our home is where we do so much more than we ever have done – well planned layouts, generous room sizes and thoughtful outdoor spaces are priority in a Peabody home. For Greg and June, being in their 50’s and 60’s they may not be described as typical first time buyers, however they found their perfect home using Shared Ownership at The Pomeroy, a boutique development in New Cross, South East London well-renowned for its green spaces. “One of our main reasons for purchasing at The Pomeroy is the outdoor space and our apartment has a large wrap-around terrace. When we got here, we dug up our entire garden from our previous home and re-planted everything. This includes roughly 50 potted plants, bamboo, shrubs, two Japanese Acers, a wild cherry tree, and lavender. It looks astonishing – like our very own sanctuary. We plan on sharing our cuttings and seedlings with our neighbours for them to use in their own outdoor spaces. The development has a very distinct, community feel to it.”

Home buyers keen to find a home that engages the freedom to grow, space to be creative and enjoy living within communities that offer residents the choice to do whatever the day brings – whether it’s a private balcony, rooftop garden or a nearby park to roam, relax or catch an early morning run, extra space to create a snazzy home office or somewhere to meet up with friends and spend time together – Peabody has a selection of homes currently available with Help to Buy and Shared Ownership and plenty more coming soon across London that are sure to tick the box!

If South London is your scene, then you can choose from a super-stylish collection of homes available soon with Help to Buy at Arden at Parkside. Perfect for those seeking space to get outdoors, the scheme is enveloped by luscious green space, as well as access to a concierge service, a co-working hub, fitness suite and exclusive snug room, and perfectly positioned to hop across to the lively nearby destination of Lewisham, where buyers can also visit The Scene, a new selection of apartments and houses available with London Help to Buy and Shared Ownership. If buzzing Bermondsey is more appealing, Lazenby Square in the heart of SE1 could be the next place for buyers to call home. Transformed into a post-industrial dream offering a thriving melting pot of bars, restaurants and street food markets, buyers can choose from a collection of luxurious Shared Ownership apartments all boasting private outside space, access to a 24hr concierge, a gym and much more.

If the edgy side of East London is where you are heading to, then there is plenty to choose from! A superb selection of spacious Shared Ownership homes at Pontoon Reach are ideal for city professionals who want to work from home but need the office within close reach. Set within E16 and located next to one of London’s largest riverside green spaces, Thames Barrier Park, riverside walks or morning runs are there for the taking. Another vibrant east London hub is Stratford where a new phase of Shared Ownership apartments is due to launch this Autumn at Bridge East and less than two miles away is a new selection of Shared Ownership homes at Three Waters in Bromley-by-Bow. Both developments are set on the waterside, buyers here have some of the most sought-after East London neighbourhoods on their doorstep – the popular acres of Victoria Park, the Olympic Park and the creative capital of Hackney Wick are both minutes away and with hassle-free connections across the city offering a truly well-connected lifestyle. Monier Place is another collection of Shared Ownership apartments launching soon in the heart of the creative community of Fish Island in Hackney Wick, where “together makes great happen”.

If life by the river inspires you, then launching this September is the next phase of the Shared Ownership collection at The River Gardens in Greenwich. Located just by the Thames and offering an exciting collection of one, two and three bedroom homes boasting fantastic resident amenities, parking and outside space to all properties.
