The property market has seen a surge in demand for homes in urban locations with green space situated nearby. Recent findings from a report released by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) have indicated that 74% of the property professionals surveyed have seen an increase in demand for homes near parks1. Coming soon to the London suburb of Edgware, a location that is home to numerous attractive green spaces, is Shanly Homes’ newest collection of homes, Hillgrove House. Due to launch in January, Hillgrove House will comprise an exclusive collection of 20 one and two-bedroom homes with London Help to Buy available, allowing purchasers to own a home in the Capital with just a 5% deposit.

With Edgware Station located just 8 minutes away on foot, and numerous parks and open green spaces situated close by, residents can relish in the hustle and bustle of the capital, yet simultaneously enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. The nearby Stonegrove Park has something for everyone – with basketball and tennis courts, a children’s play area, and plenty of green space to kick a ball around. Alternatively, Canons Park is only a five-minute drive away, and is home to 45 acres of green space, and Stanmore Country Park Reserve is just five minutes away, offering a number of fantastic nature trails.

Simon Dalton, New Homes Sales Director at Preston Bennet comments: “Priorities have changed substantially since lockdown ended in the UK. The working world is slowly returning to ‘business as usual’, so, proximity to the rail network remains an important consideration for many buyers; however, access to green space and convenient leisure amenities have also become paramount in recent times. Hillgrove House offers both. We anticipate a lot of interest at Hillgrove House – from first time buyers making use of the London Help to Buy scheme (40%), investors, commuters, and downsizers alike.”

Each luxury apartment at Hillgrove House has been designed to cater for the most discerning tastes. Layouts have been carefully planned to maximise space and invite plenty of natural light, and Shanly Homes has been sure to implement a high specification throughout.

Matthew Brazier, Sales Director at Shanly Homes comments: “There are a number of enviable perks to Hillgrove House; not only it’s fantastic location, but the apartments all benefit from a superb specification, and many come with private allocated parking – a real luxury for London accommodation.

Kitchens feature contemporary units with composite worktops and upstands, a selection of Zanussi and Siemens integrated appliances, and stylish LED feature lighting. Master bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom equipped with Ideal Standard sanitaryware and Minoli tiling to floors and walls. Main bathrooms also benefit from this specification. Additionally, residents will have access to a lift serving all floors, private allocated parking and cycle storage.
