The pandemic has led people to focus more on their mental health and wellbeing, and recent research has indicated that living close to blue space can help reduce stress and anxiety. For those looking to live in a scenic location, Notting Hill Genesis has just launched a collection of Shared Ownership apartments at Woodberry Down, Finsbury Park.
Heron Quater II, the collection of Shared Ownership apartments at Woodberry Down, includes stunning one and two-bedroom apartments with views of the West Reservoir. The development is close to 3 exciting London hotspots – Hackney, Stoke Newington and Finsbury Park – and from the banks of the West Reservoir, you can enjoy panoramic views of the London skyline.
Woodberry Down is close to excellent transport links, and Manor House Underground Station is a few minutes away on foot, offering journeys to Kings Cross in just 10 minutes. Alternatively, for direct routes into Moorgate and Liverpool Street, Harringay Green Lanes, Seven Sisters, Stamford Hill station, and Finsbury Park station are all close to the development.
Next to Heron Quater II there is a luscious courtyard garden with spaces to wander, sit and relax. Woodberry Wetlands Nature Reserve is also near the development, and here you can enjoy 11 hectares of reed-fringed ponds and dykes. The nature reserve is free of charge and open all year round. Alternatively, residents can also go to the West Reservoir to partake in an exciting variety of water sports, such as open water swimming, kayaking, canoeing and sailing.
James Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis, comments:
“We’re thrilled to unveil our latest phase of Shared Ownership homes at Woodberry Down. The previous collection was a hit with buyers across London who were searching for a more relaxed pace of life, and, with an increasing amount of evidence to suggest that living near blue space is beneficial to our health, it’s little wonder so many home-hunters flock to waterside schemes. Home buyers hoping to gain a balance between this and connectivity with the rest of London will be excited by Heron Quarter II, where we have a superb selection of one and two-bedroom properties available. We recommend booking a viewing early ahead of our launch this May.”
All of the properties at Heron Quarter II have been finished to a high standard and have stylish interiors. The apartments boast impressive open-plan living spaces and feature floor-to-ceiling windows, maximising the sense of space and light throughout. Kitchens feature matt grey units and a range of high-quality integrated appliances. Bathrooms are equally stylish and include a Roca White bath panel with glass screen, light grey matt wall and floor tiles, Roca Laura hand basin and Hansgrohe chrome mixer tap, and feature mirror above basin and shaver socket. Other amenities include audio-visual door entry systems, communal lifts and secure cycle storage.
The surrounding area is vibrant and lively, and there are many dining and shopping options available. Stoke Newington is nearby the development and offers an array of bars and eateries. Residents can also go to Stroud Green Road in Finsbury Park, and here there are many independent cafes and restaurants. The local landmark, The Faltering Fullback, is also a great place to get a drink. Additionally, there are many local markets in the area, such as Broadway Market, Columbia Road Flower Marker, and Victoria Park Market, where residents can go when they would like to buy fresh flowers, antiques, artisan baked goods, and organic produce.
