The pandemic has led people to re-evaluate what they want from their homes, and many are now desiring waterside views. Water is known to have calming properties and is just as important for your mental health as green spaces. Perfect for those looking for a unique canalside property. Clarion Housing Group has just released new Shared Ownership homes at Liberty Wharf, Alperton. The development is on the Piccadilly Line and is a great way for first-time buyers to live in a location that provides access to nature and city life.
Liberty Wharf is a luxury collection of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, and they are situated on the historic Grand Union Canal. The development has been designed in a U-shape so that all of the apartments have scenic views across the landscaped courtyard. Many also have views of the canal, and nature is at the heart of this urban development. Liberty Wharf is the perfect place for those looking for a home in the city with easy access to towpath walks, runs, and bike rides. It is also close to popular local parks and an abundance of green spaces.
Commuting from Liberty Wharf couldn’t be easier, as the development is just a 10-minute walk away from Alperton Station. From here, the Piccadilly Line reaches South Kensington in 24 minutes and Leicester Square in 34 minutes. The local area is also great to explore and known for being a welcoming and thriving community.
Krete Luca, Sales Director at Clarion Housing Group, comments:
“This really is a unique offering. Normally canalside living in London comes with a huge price tag out of reach for most first-time buyers, but as these homes are available with shared ownership, it is a rare opportunity to buy a new home on the banks of the Grand Union Canal. With such close access to the Piccadilly Line, London is at your fingertips, and the waterside location has all the benefits of a more rural location. It really does feel like the best of both worlds.”
New resident, Ewa comments:
“When I discovered Liberty Wharf, I immediately knew we had found our home. As soon as you enter the courtyard, you’re transported to a space that is peaceful and serene, it doesn’t feel like London. The scenery is beautiful, and there is always something to look at. For us, being close to a natural environment has always been important – it helps to ground us and reset our mental state, so when I saw the abundance of nature here, I was immediately interested.”
The development has been carefully designed and offers high specification interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and secluded communal gardens. The interior of each property features stylish Amtico Spacia flooring to the hall, kitchen, and living room. The bedrooms boast mirror-fitted wardrobes and pendant lighting, while bathrooms are comprised of feature tiling to bath wall and a chrome heated ladder towel rail. Kitchens are equally luxurious and feature Modern laminate worktops, an Electric hob with anti-fingerprint, stainless steel single oven, and Under pelmet lighting.
The two and three-bedroom apartments also come with allocated secure underground parking. Additionally, all of the homes are kitted out with video entry systems, providing extra security.
Shared Ownership is a scheme that offers first-time buyers the chance to buy a share of a property’s value, between 25% and 75%, while paying a subsidised rent on the remaining share. Subsequently, buyers only need to put down a deposit on the share they purchase, allowing them to become a homeowner with a lower level of savings than if they were to buy the same home outright. Additionally, buyers can choose to buy additional shares of their property, as and when they can afford to, right up to 100%.
Viewings are currently available in a Covid safe environment by appointment only.
Prices at Liberty Wharf start at £83,250 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment priced at £333,000. For more information or to arrange a viewing, please visit www.liberty-wharf.co.uk or call 0300 100 0309.
