JLL offers new homes in London’s green pockets

Living in London doesn’t mean compromising on green space. Enjoy the benefits of urban living, your way.

London is extraordinarily green and has been crowned as the world’s first National Park City. From Royal parklands and popular commons, to boating lakes and Japanese gardens, the city and its outskirts are rich in green spaces for commuters and families alike to enjoy. Perfect for those living in new houses and apartments that may be limited on outdoor space. Living in London doesn’t mean you need compromise on green space.

March welcomes a new season to explore the benefits of our local landmarks. As the days get a little longer and temperatures creep up to a warmer level, we are drawn to dusting off the winter cobwebs and enjoying parks and pools our city offers. Be within a short drive of a Golf and Country Club from new homes at Westerham House, Edenbridge. For those with a penchant for football and rugby, look no further than Boyn Heights’ easy access to Maidenhead’s Club Sports.

Moving closer to the city, we have a collection of apartments in green hotspots. Helix’s proximity to Roundwood Park in Harlesden offers a unique Grade II listed space featuring a bowling green, aviary, and wildlife area. Wyndham Studios’ coveted Zone 2 location makes for an ideal home in Camberwell, supported by open spaces to enjoy during the week and weekends. Join one of the biggest sporting events in the country and go against the clock every Saturday at 9am for the Burgess Park parkrun or enjoy a game of tennis in the summer months.

Located just south of the River Thames, amongst an abundance of green spaces, restaurants and schools, Wandsworth is a desirable borough to find your new home. Whilst most homes at Osiers Square benefit from a private balcony or terrace, the development is a stone’s throw away from Wandsworth Park. What’s more, Wandsworth is famed for both Wandsworth and Clapham Commons. Bronze, a new residential development adjacent to King George’s Park, is perfectly positioned for residents to enjoy tennis, a children’s playground and walks along the River Wandle to nearby eateries.

Recent studies show the association between green spaces and wellbeing, suggesting that public health can be improved by increasing access to green spaces. Developers have taken this onboard, valuing the wellbeing and community feeling in new homes across London. Proximity to parks, communal landscaped gardens and roof terraces are now common amongst the list of key features and residents’ amenities.

London is famed for national landmarks however it’s easy to forget that within this busy, cosmopolitan bubble sanctuaries still exist.
