Over the last two years, the number of people working from home has risen significantly, leading to a shift in priorities for buyers searching for their dream home. With reports of hybrid working set to become a long-term fixture, more and more purchasers are searching for the perfect balance of living, with both connectivity and comfort ranking highly in priorities.
Set to launch on January 22nd is the latest phase of homes at L&Q at Queens Quarter, a collection of 75 one, two and three bedroom apartments. Each home offers plenty of space for residents to relax and work from home, whilst also boasting a short commute time for those days in the office, expertly meeting the wants and needs of the modern purchaser.
The high-quality homes are available exclusively through Shared Ownership – the part buy, part rent Government-backed scheme helping to open up the property market for the capital’s first time buyers.
Claire Brenlund, Sales Director at L&Q, comments: “We’re delighted to be delivering the next phase of Shared Ownership at L&Q at Queen’s Quarter in Croydon, offering even more opportunities to get on to the property ladder in this buzzing neighbourhood. Providing spacious high-quality homes, in an area with excellent transport links and fantastic amenities nearby, we’re thrilled to be giving first time buyers the opportunity to enjoy the very best of South London living.”
As one of London’s best connected business hubs, served by multiple train lines, East Croydon Station is just a seven-minute walk away from the development. For those commuting, both London Bridge and London Victoria can be reached in less than 20 minutes, whilst 15-minute services to Gatwick Airport will appeal for those travelling further afield. For more local travel, there are three tram routes just moments from L&Q at Queen’s Quarter.
Creating a green oasis in the city, residents have access to communal outdoor areas, including a top floor roof garden, which offers an exclusive outdoor hideaway providing panoramic views of South London. Homes also overlook the adjacent Queen’s Gardens, which is being refurbished as part of the project. Once completed, this community-inspired outside space will feature manicured lawns, leafy mature trees, bright flower beds and new play areas.
Crafted with comfort in mind, all homes are finished to a high specification; with open plan layouts that maximise on interior space, while kitchens are fitted with stylish and durable countertops with integrated appliances. All bathrooms feature modern white sanitaryware with chrome accessories, contemporary tiling and full height mirrors, whilst some bedrooms feature ensuites. Bedrooms are fitted with carpet and built-in wardrobes to the main bedroom. All homes feature private outdoor space, whilst communal bike storage is a practical addition for keen cyclists.
Residents are minutes from East Croydon’s thriving food scene, including Box Park Croydon with its plethora of gourmet street food and local favourite Matthew’s Yard, both less than a mile’s walk away.
