Variety Of Investment Opportunities In Residence By The South Bank
16 Jan 2015

Property hunters with an eye for investment have spotted the variety of opportunities presented by award-winning Linden Homes’ new collection of apartments, The Residence, near London’s bustling South Bank.

The Residence, in Blackfriars Road, Southwark, has a range of high quality one, two and three-bedroom homes, including a number of 2-bedroom duplex apartments – so there is plenty of choice and options ready for the buy-to-let market.

Close to the thriving South Bank with all its attractions, shopping and eateries, The Residence is part of the flourishing new neighbourhood which has cemented its claim to be a new cultural quarter of the capital.

Young professionals are attracted by the revitalised Borough Market, for example, where foodies browse quality produce. The Shard is the latest arrival to add fresh prestige to the SE1 postcode, while the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe bring cultural colour.

As an added attraction to draw tenants, investors can point to the beautifully landscaped rooftop communal garden on the sixth floor, granting extra green and offering the chance to socialise, relax and take in the wider views of Canary Wharf and even St Paul’s.

The apartments themselves enjoy the precious outdoor space that comes with either a private balcony or terrace above the bustle of the city; perfect for views of London’s famous skyline and as enviable box seats for New Year fireworks.

Buyers will be able to experience the views and the quality for themselves when Linden Homes unveils The Residence’s show home in spring this year.

Darren Maddox, Linden Homes South East managing director, said: “From a buy-to-let point of view, one of the great things about The Residence is the wide choice of investments from such a variety of apartments.

“The duplex apartments in particular are very attractive. They have plenty of space to attract a range of tenants, so they are suitable for sharing professionals, couples or as an impressive single’s pad in the city. It makes them very flexible.

“Investors are on to a winner at The Residence. Good value prices combine with stylish, high quality homes in a stunning location. We think buyers will be as happy with their returns as the people living in them are with their new home.”

The hi-spec apartments feature oak-faced front doors, fitted kitchens, built-in wardrobes and a set-up for modern living, such as Sky+ ready living rooms and bedrooms, plus video entry systems.

In common with all Linden Homes properties, each apartment at The Residence also comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

For getting about, just a couple of minutes down Blackfriars Road is Southwark tube station, which is on the Jubilee Line and one stop from London Bridge and Waterloo making the rest of London very accessible.
