While being in lockdown, people are really appreciating the green spaces available in the city. Many are incorporating trips to parks into their daily routines, and are also having socially distanced walks with friends. According to a poll by charity CPRE, 54% of Londoners say they have valued local green spaces more since lockdown restrictions were imposed. London’s parks, commons and communal gardens have been a huge source of comfort and relief, and access to green space has now become a must-have for city living. Peckham Place in South East London, has stunning landscaped communal gardens available for its residents to enjoy and many potential buyers have become interested in this key feature of the development, which has been a contributing factor to its current success.
The development features a lush tree-lined pocket park, which is open to all, and this is an integral part of Peckham Place and the wider community. There are currently homes at the development available for private sale and through shared ownership, and suiting a range of buyers and lifestyles, the wide mix of apartments range from one to three bedrooms. The design of the development, which combines stylish contemporary homes and landscaped gardens, in buzzing Peckham, has proved a hit, with over 50% of the homes at Peckham Place now sold.
James Munson, Head of Marketing for Notting Hill Genesis, comments:
With everyone spending more time at home in recent months and many still working from home, it has really highlighted the things that we value – outside space is definitely one of those. We believe that will continue and access to the outdoors will be a prerequisite for apartment homes in the capital. The properties at Peckham Place not only have private outdoor space in the form of a generous balcony or terrace, but the communal gardens will become a great place to socialise with neighbours, the new park provides a space for exercising outdoors and Peckham Rye is just around the corner. We have seen sales enquiries rise sharply in recent weeks as we move out of lockdown and buyers have really had time to think about what they want from their new living environment.
As well as the varied outdoor spaces, the apartments at Peckham Place feature outstanding interiors which are based on open-plan living and are filled with an abundance of natural light. The living areas also offer flexible space over one or two levels and each of the apartments feature spacious bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms, including an en suite to the master bedroom. Additionally, the homes at Peckham Place include chic matt grey kitchens, with integrated appliances. Other features include – integrated eco recycling bins, low energy recessed lighting and fitted wardrobes in the master bedrooms. Most apartments also have their own paved terrace or balcony with glazed privacy screens, which overlook the beautiful landscaped gardens.
