Dance couple ‘make all the right moves’ and buy stunning two bedroom apartment at Trinity Walk in Woolwich
The Argentinian couple, who run a Tango school in central London, have just bought a stunning two bedroom, two bathroom apartment at Lovell Homes’ Trinity Walk development in Woolwich.
They have just moved into their new home which boasts two balconies, allowing them to enjoy both morning and evening sun.
They fell in love with the development when searching for property on the web. Daniel,34, said: “We knew exactly what we wanted and this was it. We didn’t have to look at another development – this ticked all the boxes. The whole process has been quick, and we couldn’t be happier in our own home.”
The couple managed to save up a deposit over five years and bought the £455,000 property using the Government’s London Help to Buy initiative.
“It took us five years to save up for a deposit, but we weren’t going to sacrifice holidays and going out, so it took a bit longer than expected!”
The couple moved into the area a month ago and already see the potential to set up a Tango dance school in Woolwich. The popularity of Strictly Come Dancing has benefitted Daniel’s Tango school (www.tangointegral.com) and he thinks there’s a market in his new neighbourhood for dancing classes.
Daniel explained: “I’m looking at setting up classes, initially, in the area. The Tango is a very popular dance – so many people want to be able to do it! It’s not difficult, but it takes dedication and practice and we focus on dancing as a healthy way of training and exercise. We have all levels and abilities – from 20-80 years old. Everyone can enjoy The Tango.”
And it was definitely a case of ‘It takes two to Tango’ when the couple recently announced they were expecting their first baby. “It’s amazing news and we can’t wait,” said Eleonora.
Eleonora,36, added: “Our apartment is very spacious – room for a little one – and includes outside space which is a bonus. With restrictions on going out, we need that outside space even more at the moment. It’s still nice now to be able to step out of our apartment and look out onto the communal gardens.”
Looking for life opportunities in his twenties, Daniel moved to London from Argentina six years ago and has never looked back. He now works at Tesco headquarters in London as his 9-5 job.
Daniel added: “We think Woolwich has potential with the Cross Rail opening soon which will make a big impact for people getting to central London and Canary Wharf. It has lots of shops, bars and coffee shops – everything you need is here. Our monthly mortgage payment is less than our previous rent too, so it’s a win win!”
Lea Hudson, Lovell Homes’ Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to hear that Daniel and Eleonora have settled in well and we are thrilled with the news that Trinity Walk will soon have a new arrival.”
Lea added: “There’s never been a better time for first time buyers to get onto the London housing ladder. We have sold over 90 per cent of the apartments at Trinity Walk to first time buyers.
“With prices for a one bed luxury apartment starting at £360,000, first-time buyers are finding they can afford to buy at Trinity Walk with the London Help to Buy scheme. A five per cent deposit is all buyers need and with interest rates being historically low, it’s a very attractive opportunity.”
Trinity Walk is a collection of 445 new build one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Each new home has been built to maximise space and light as well as being finished with a high specification to ensure high levels of comfort, security and quality.
