Recent reports by magazine Cycling Weekly have revealed that up to five million people could be commuting by bicycle as the UK workforce begins to return to offices. With 17% of commuters expressing that they are more likely to cycle to work following the recent pandemic. Commuters on the hunt for an affordable home in the capital that supports this greener mode of transport, should look to Parkside Place in Wembley, where Notting Hill Genesis has a few remaining Shared Ownership homes for sale. Ideal for buyers who prefer commuting on two wheels, rather than relying on tubes and trains, residents of Parkside Place can enjoy a healthy, economical and efficient way of getting around the city from their new Zone 4 home.
Those living at Parkside Place will benefit from numerous cycle routes connecting Wembley to Central London and beyond, as well as access onto North West London’s first major cycle route. The new 5km route connects Wembley to Stonebridge Park and Willesden Junction, whilst future sections will connect Wembley to Supercycle Highways CS9 and CS10. For those who prefer to commute via train, Sudbury Town Underground is a five-minute walk away and is home to the Piccadilly line while Sudbury and Harrow rail station is four-minutes away providing connections to London Marylebone and West Ruislip. National Rail services and the Bakerloo line run from Wembley Central to Paddington in just twenty minutes, while the North Circular, A40 and the M4 are all within easy reach, taking motorists into central London and connecting to the UK’s wider motorway network.
James Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis comments:
Parkside Place offers plentiful onsite cycle storage and flexible open plan layouts, providing hopeful homeowners with a picture-perfect home, equipped for modern day living in a location that makes travelling around London easy, makes accessing local amenities from independent retailers to entertainment values simple but also offers a relaxing, leafy suburban setting. With just three apartments remaining, we’d recommend that local buyers and those coming from more central London locations to seek greater value act quickly.
All of the apartments at Parkside Place benefit from flexible open plan kitchen / dining / living rooms with direct access onto a private balcony, creating a serene space during the summer months and the ideal space to relax with friends or family. Bedrooms have been well thought out, with large windows flooding the space with light and plenty of space for bedroom furniture including a wardrobe and chest of drawers. Bathrooms are stylish in design with sleek ceramic tiling complementing the modern feel of the home and chrome fixtures and fittings tying the space together. Homeowners will be pleased with the storage available in the apartments at Parkside Place, a large closet in the hallway acts as the perfect space to fit a washer/dryer and hide away coats or even a folding bike!
What is Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership offers aspiring buyers the opportunity to buy a share of a home’s value, between 25% and 75%, while paying a subsidised rent on the remaining share. The lower deposit level required with the Shared Ownership scheme, means buyers need only put down a deposit on the share they purchase and not the full market value of the property. Shared Ownership means you can become a home owner with a lower level of savings than if you were to buy the same home outright. Buyers can also choose to buy additional shares on their property as and when they can afford to, right up to 100%.
A one-bedroom property at Parkside Place is available to purchase from £80,000 for a 25% share of the full market value of £320,000. The last remaining two-bedroom apartment is available to purchase for £99,375 for a 25% share of the full market value of £397,500.
