Green Oasis Awaits Househunters In Popular And Accessible South London Suburb
02 Jan 2018

An aspirational development of new homes set within 13 acres of lush green open space in South London is set to offer a range of househunters the chance to put down roots in a popular and accessible location.

Waterford Place, in the leafy suburb of New Eltham within the Borough of Greenwich, is a collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes from award-winning Linden Homes.

Based on the 5.3 hectare former Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) sports ground, which has been vacant since 1992 when the GAA centralised its facilities around its headquarters in Ruislip, the homes sit around the green open space which includes a children’s play area and biodiverse habitat zone.

Along with the new homes on Avery Hill Road, Linden is also redeveloping Bardhill Sports Ground on Footscray Road, which has been unused for 15 years. The site is being redeveloped to provide the residents of Waterford Place and the wider community with a new sports pitch, community building, school/community garden and associated parking and landscaping.

Surrounded by these new amenities, New Eltham also boasts a range of established facilities including a library, pub and Post Office, plus good local schools for all ages. Eltham town centre, just 1.6 miles away, provides a wider selection of high street retailers alongside a range of independent shops. Other local attractions include Eltham Palace, the Bob Hope Theatre and a choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants. A new six screen cinema complex is due to open this year.

When it comes to transport links, Waterford Place residents will be able to get to London Bridge in just 20 minutes with a direct service from New Eltham station. Avery Hill Road is midway between the A2 and A20, within easy reach of the South Circular Road.

Prices at Waterford Place currently start at £649,950 for a three-bedroom semi-detached property. The Ardmore features thoughtfully-designed and practical living space including a stylish, contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances, separate utility, downstairs cloakroom and separate dining and living rooms, leading to the garden through French doors. On the first floor, in addition to the three bedrooms, there’s a family bathroom and en-suite to the bedroom one. A private parking space to the front of the property is included.

Darren Maddox, Managing Director of Linden Homes South East, commented: “With the history of the site in mind, we felt it was only appropriate to make this a feature of Waterford Place. As a result, the open green space sits directly in the centre of the development with homes situated around the outside. This means nearly every home has a fantastic outlook and access to green space right outside the front door.

“New Eltham is a fantastic place that’s got great transport links and local amenities. The area is predominantly made up of homes that were built in the 1930’s and we have been seeing a lot of local interest in the development. I’d urge anyone that is interested to come down and have a look around and talk to the team about how we can help you secure a home here.”
