Recently voted one of the top 10 hotspots for first time buyers in London, the vibrant and diverse London borough of Lewisham has certainly made its mark amongst London’s property hunters, experiencing a very impressive 94% increase in property values in the last 10 years. Homebuyers seeking a setting from which they can take advantage of fantastic transport links, a thriving hub of local amenities and award-winning parks and green spaces, Peabody’s development, Arden at Parkside, is a must-see! Located in south-east London, the collection of homes at Arden forms the final part of the wider Heathside and Lethbridge regeneration story, set to launch this May. Comprising a superb selection of apartments and duplexes enveloped by an outstanding array of onsite amenities, and soon to be available with London Help to Buy – buyers will have a tough task to find a better place to step on to the property ladder.
Derived from the Latin meaning ‘great forest’, Arden occupies an attractive and tranquil setting within the leafy and well-established development of Parkside, SE10 – perfectly positioned to take advantage of four popular London districts, with Lewisham, Greenwich, Deptford and Blackheath all within easy reach. Homebuyers who choose to make this corner of the capital their home will enjoy a bourgeoning new neighbourhood to explore, where the coexistence of green space and well-being are perfectly composed for modern city lifestyles. The wider program of regeneration at Parkside already provides residents with access to a thriving new destination in the capital bringing over 780 new homes, a modern community hub and café, a nursery and significant new public green space.
Arden will offer a stylish selection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments and two-bedroom duplexes within five new buildings spanning two new phases. Each has been thoughtfully crafted to seamlessly unify the existing surroundings and provide a collection of high-quality homes for a range of buyers. From first time buyers keen to soak up the energetic south-east London climate, to those moving up the property ladder for more space or growing families wanting to capitalise on the excellent transport links, extensive green spaces and local schools – whatever the wish list, Arden is sure to offer something to suit all requirements. Each home features an impeccable bespoke interior specification combined with modern and contemporary detailing. Open plan layouts have been well planned to provide spacious and convenient areas for today’s lifestyle, be it working from home, keeping up with fitness goals, entertaining or simply relaxing. Every property features private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace, with some enjoying outstanding city-scape views across London’s much-loved capital. Selected homes also have access to car parking spaces.
Lisa Crush, Director of Sales & Marketing at Peabody comments: “We are incredibly proud to be launching the final phase of this remarkable landmark scheme unifying a stylish collection of new homes with what is already fast-becoming a jewel in south-east London’s crown. With the addition of offering the London Help to Buy scheme, buyers will have the opportunity to purchase a home using just a 5% deposit, but also witness the exciting transformation that the Parkside masterplan will bring to the local area, whilst enjoying an enviable lifestyle with some of London’s best venues on the doorstep – we expect demand to be high and would encourage prospective buyers to register their details as soon as possible.”
Tom Rundall, Partner at Knight Frank comments: “We are delighted to be able to bring these homes at Arden to the market on behalf of Peabody. At a time when it’s difficult to plan for the future Peabody has gone to great lengths to design homes that reflect the needs of homeowners. Outside space, well designed interiors that cater for working from home and amenities such as parcel storage and generous car parking provisions have all been considered and will be delivered at Arden. One of the really unique points for me is how Arden ticks the boxes of so many attributes we see buyers looking for, and by being at the centre of the Greenwich, Deptford, Lewisham triangle, it offers so much in terms of parks, connectivity, education and culture and buyers can see this for themselves at the new state of the art marketing suite opening in May.”
Occupying a convenient and central location bordering Travel Zones 2 and 3, Arden offers a unique tranquil setting, with community, green space and wellness at its core. Extensive landscaping and greenery mean residents have access to a vast amount of outdoor space within the development – a central podium garden, a new park and a landscaped vista that runs through the heart of Parkside make up just some of the communal areas, as well as a woodland area and viewing platform overlooking the capital creates an impressive oasis of calm. Onsite amenities are also a stunning addition for buyers who are keen to enjoy everything that modern living brings and includes concierge service and parcel delivery storage which will ensure no delivery is ever missed again.
The local area offers a desirable lifestyle, with a superfluous choice of venues to visit. Lewisham, Deptford and Greenwich effortlessly marry together the historical and energetic charms of the local influences, and moments from Arden is a multitude of bars, shops, restaurants and cultural venues. Notable places to mention include the world-famous live music venue The O2, 26-minutes away via the DLR. In Greenwich The Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum or Greenwich Market are great for a cultural day out. Deptford High Street is host to plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, a cinema and a regular street market. There are plenty of parks nearby perfect for enjoying the warmer summer months with friends for a picnic or a family walk, the award-winning Greenwich Park and Blackheath Park are both within walking distance of Arden.
