Lovell Homes’ Trinity Walk development in Woolwich was the clear standout choice for a young couple when looking for an apartment with great connectivity.
Esther Thomas and Dale Singleton, both 27, moved into their two-bedroom, two bathroom ground floor apartment at the popular new build development taking advantage of Help to Buy.
Software developer Dale said: “We really love how Woolwich is a real south London hub with great connectivity into and out of London. We have excellent choices of buses, the DLR trains and even the Greenwich ferry. Woolwich Arsenal is in Zone 4 and only a six-minute walk away, offering regular services to London Bridge talking 21-25 minutes.”
Esther, who works in banking, added: “With Crossrail now open it offers super speedy services into Canary Wharf, central London and through to Heathrow Airport. It made good sense to us to invest in our first property in an area that is benefitting from regeneration on such a dynamic scale.”
Dale added: “We knew we wanted to use the Help to Buy scheme before it finishes next March and did look at a few other new build schemes. We searched for a few weeks in Limehouse, Blackwall Reach in Canary Wharf, Bromley-by-Bow and Croydon. But what we found was that these other developments felt very urban. They were really close to a main road or the DLR, whereas Trinity Walk is next to Woolwich Common and leafy, large open green spaces near the River Thames – it has a far quieter and more relaxed atmosphere.”
The couple, who have a one-year-old Cocker-poo, Yoshi, were also thrilled when they found out pets are allowed at the development and chose a ground floor apartment with a south west facing large L-shaped patio. “The patio is a real suntrap and we have lots of plans to create a fabulous outdoor room, with pots and plants and patio furniture to use for entertaining, having friends and family over for drinks and barbecues. It’s a perfect private outside space and we know we’ll enjoy spending lots of time out there,” said Esther.
Lovell Homes’ new build residential scheme at Trinity Walk has been a clear winner for buyers who have discovered that the one and two bedroom apartments, offer far better value for money than other developments across London.
Another big tick in the box for the couple was the ‘district heating scheme’ operated by SSE at Trinity Walk. This is a London based scheme, which the couple said ‘improves efficiency, reduces energy costs and offer a more sustainable option for residents living at Trinity Walk’.
When it comes to the favourite elements of their new apartment, Dale said: “For me it’s the good sized, nicely finished master bedroom en-suite.”
Esther added: “For me it’s actually how close we are to amenities. Trinity Walk has got everything on the doorstep: a massive Tesco, whereas usually, in London, you only have a small version of a supermarket. Then you have the High Street with a good selection of shops and more independent retailers at the Royal Arsenal. It feels like there’s everything you could want within a few minutes’ walk of here. We’re looking forward to exploring more and finding favourite shops and places to enjoy with Yoshi.”
The last remaining chance to buy at Lovell Homes’ apartments at Trinity Walk which include one and two bedroom apartments and prices start at £355,000.
