The London borough of Lewisham is an area which embodies both old and modern South London and this unique charm establishes the borough as an energetic, creative and diverse community. Lewisham has plenty to offer its residents, such as: attractive residential neighbourhoods, pockets of open green space and convenient links into Central London. Amersham Vale is a particularly vibrant part of Lewisham and many homebuyers have recently been considering purchasing a home in this area. Peabody and Sherrygreen homes have created a new development in this area called The Muse, and they virtually launched their first collection of apartments and duplexes on Saturday 21st November. The development offers a stylish variety of homes and most are available to purchase through London Help to Buy.
Lisa Crush, Director of Sales and Marketing at Peabody, comments:
We are delighted to be working with Sherrygreen Homes on our newest development, The Muse. This fantastic scheme will benefit from being in a location that is rich in culture and community, and will also provide much needed housing to the borough of Lewisham; including more apartments, duplexes and houses in future releases. Located just moments from New Cross and Deptford stations, residents will benefit from fantastic commuter links into Central London, whilst the properties have been well planned to cater for a range of lifestyles. Whether residents are working from home, wanting to enjoy having the rest of London on their doorstep, or even expanding their family, The Muse has a home for everyone.
Martin Taylor, Development Director at Sherrygreen Homes, remarks:
Sherrygreen Homes is proud to be part of The Muse development with Peabody. We believe the scheme will deliver both well-designed and well-constructed homes which will meet the demands of the modern Londoner in a location which has a rich culture and a vibrant community. Purchasers will also benefit from ease of access to the City and the West End making The Muse a great place to live. In addition, the adjacent Charlottenberg Park, which has recently been created as part of the development, adds to the open feel of the area and the wellbeing of the local community. We believe The Muse will meet the expectations of aspiring purchasers and quickly establish itself as a desirable place to live.
The apartments available at The Muse are sure to surpass expectations for all types of buyers, including: couples, friends, siblings, and those living alone. The scheme’s two-bedroom virtual show apartment gives people the opportunity to have a preview of what the remaining properties launching in Spring 2021 will look like. The apartment includes a spacious kitchen/dining/living room and this provides flexible accommodation for a variety of lifestyles. In this area of the house there is also plenty of space for a work from home desk as well as a sofa and television. This space is truly the heart of the property and the kitchen is a perfect place for those that love to cook, as it benefits from sleek kitchen units and integrated Bosch appliances. There is also access to a long private outside balcony from this part of the apartment.
Both bedrooms are exceptionally spacious and the main bedroom includes an built-in wardrobe and has direct access to the property’s balcony, making it an ideal place to wake up with a coffee during the spring and summer months. The main bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room. The principal bathroom guarantees serenity and relaxation, as it has sleek finishes, ceramic tiling, stylish chrome fixtures and fittings, and white sanitaryware.
Also available to purchase is a selection of two-bedroom duplexes which are ideal for growing families or those who are after a slightly bigger home. The duplexes are flexible in design and downstairs of the virtual show home there is a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, which offers a versatile space for relaxing, entertaining or working from home. There are also large glazed doors which fill the space with light and offer a view onto the properties’ terrace.
There are large windows on the top floor of the duplex and this ensures the rooms are bright and filled with light. For those who often work from home, bedroom two could be turned into a home office space, as there is ample space to fit a desk and computer. However, if you do not need a home office the room can also fit a double bed and can be used as a children’s or guest bedroom. The master bedroom is also beautifully finished and is complete with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.
Lewisham is an area which is constantly evolving and there is plenty for residents of The Muse to take advantage of. There are many local and small businesses in the area, and many independent restaurants, cafes and fitness studios can be found in Deptford Market Yard, which sits under the oldest railway structure in London. A variety of eateries can also be found on the streets around The Muse, including Deptford Does Art – a vegan café and bar which hosts local emerging artists and activists.
The London borough of Lewisham has one of the highest number of parks and green spaces in London and residents at The Muse will have plenty of walking routes to explore. Fordham Park is a great addition to the community and it features: a large play area, football pitches and dedicated table tennis areas. Slightly further afield is Greenwich Park which is home to 183 acres of open space, including a Wilderness Deer Park, a Tennis Centre, and 17th Century landscapes and gardens which date back to the Roman era.
Commuters here are well placed to reach Central London thanks to its Zone 2 location. There are also a variety of cycling available, including Quietway 1 which connects Waterloo to Greenwich. Additionally, a proposal for SuperCycle Highway CS4 has just been submitted and, if successful, the route will connect Tower Bridge to Greenwich. New Cross Gate Overground station also provides links into London Bridge and Highbury & Islington, and Deptford Station connects residents to Blackfriars, London St Pancras and Luton Airport.
The “Maiden Court Collection” is the first release of private sale homes at The Muse. Prices start from £403,500 for a one-bedroom apartment, and selected homes are available to purchase via London Help to Buy. For further information visit http://www.themuse-se14.co.uk/ or call 020 7021 4842.
