L&Q: New Shared Ownership show home launched in Greenwich, South East London
One, two and three bedroom first time buyer apartments available at Kidbrooke Village
Royal boroughs in London currently hold a 32.4% property price premium compared to the capital’s average, making stepping onto the property ladder in these locations harder for first time buyers. The Royal Borough of Greenwich is no exception, with property prices increasing by 6.3% over the last five years.
Helping first time buyers purchase in this affluent area, L&Q is currently marketing a range of one to three bedroom Shared Ownership homes at L&Q at Kidbrooke Village, where a new show home has just launched to give prospective buyers a feel for life inside the new homes.
Demonstrating to buyers how much can be achieved in a one bedroom apartment, L&Q’s new show home features an open-plan living space cleverly divided to maximise on space. Spanning 560 sq ft, the open-plan living space features a dining table for four, a three seater L-shaped sofa, work from home station, and plenty of kitchen worktop to prepare a feast.
Throughout the show home, the on-trend royal blue tone is carried from room to room; the apartment features a statement coloured wall in the living space which contrasts with the rest of the white painted room, establishing a cosy nook for relaxing. A pop of orange in the dining chairs is reprised in the statement scatter cushions on the contemporary white sofa, demonstrating how buyers can use colour to create cohesiveness in an open-plan space.
Echoing the theme of deep blues and bursts of colour, the master bedroom features a deep blue throw and orange chair. The double mirrored wardrobe doors bounce light around the room, whilst the floor to ceiling windows maximise the natural light in the space. Alongside the expansive living area, a private balcony is accessible via modern sliding doors, offering a seamless connection to the outdoors.
Undergoing immense transformation, Kidbrooke Village is one of South East London’s most important regeneration projects and is set to offer 4,800 new homes, shops and leisure facilities. The development is already home to The Village Centre, a doctors’ surgery, pharmacy and a local farmer’s market, whilst other impressive amenities include a new Sainsbury’s, local pub The Depot and Pure Gym.
Featuring landscaped gardens and green open spaces, L&Q at Kidbrooke Village is built around Cator Park, a new 20 acre neighbourhood space featuring expansive parkland, footpaths, play areas, and water features. Residents at L&Q at Kidbrooke Village have easy access to an additional 136 acres of open parkland across Greenwich Park and Blackheath Common.
Ideal for commuters, Kidbrooke station is right on the doorstep. Travel times to London Bridge and Waterloo East are less than 20 minutes, while London Charing Cross and London Victoria are just under half an hour away. For keen cyclists, the area is home to a variety of cycle paths, connecting Kidbrooke to destinations such as Greenwich and Waterloo East.
