The arrival of the New Year often brings thoughts of change. It can stimulate plans to move house, or may even inspire you to take the plunge and buy your first home.
If you are looking for a new home in London in 2017, you should consider visiting Linden Homes’ Waterside in Earlsfield: It’s London, with a difference.
This contemporary collection of apartments, duplexes and townhouses is situated on the banks of the River Wandle. The Wandle flows north from Croydon and Carshalton, eventually joining the Thames at Wandsworth.
It was once one of the busiest rivers in the world and lay at the heart of Victorian Britain’s textile industry, powering the famous fabric mills of William Morris and Liberty, which lie to the south of Earlsfield at Merton Abbey Mills. Today the Wandle is a quiet, tranquil river that winds its way through the residential areas and parks of this peaceful slice of south London.
Linden Homes’ Waterside - named for its riverside location - has the additional benefit of overlooking, on the other side, Earlsfield’s beautiful King George’s Park. The park flanks the river Wandle all the way down from the south circular down to Earlsfield station.
Waterside has been created with everyone in mind: There are apartments for first time buyers, duplexes for those wanting even more space and three storey town houses for families.
Claire Gibbins is the Sales and Marketing Director at Linden Homes South East:
“Earlsfield is well known for its neat rows of Victorian villas and terraces. Many of them were built at the beginning of the twentieth century for the mill and textile workers. They look lovely, but older homes of course come with baggage - in the form of maintenance and repairs. Look around the streets and you’ll see homes being converted and lofts and basements being added at huge expense.
“The advantage of buying a brand new home at Waterside is that we have already maximised the space available. The homes are designed for modern living, so you don’t have to move in and start knocking down walls, adding extensions and updating bathrooms. Our bathrooms and kitchens come finished and fully fitted. And another thing to consider is the fact that new homes like ours are energy efficient in terms of heat and light. You really can just move in and start London living.”
The Waterside homes are ideal for commuters as they are just a quarter of a mile from the station - that’s about a six minute walk. From here you can get into Waterloo in less than fifteen minutes. If you have a car, then the townhouses at Waterside come with an allocated parking space. Private underground parking is also available at an extra cost.
