For Ochan getting a foot on the property ladder in central London was a dream come true. With the average cost of a flat in London being £550,000, the 24-year-old realised Trinity Walk offered great value. He had just bought his one bedroom apartment for £360,000.
Affordability was a key factor but so too was location. Ochan was familiar with the South East of London and living in Woolwich meant a short commute for him into the city.
“I work in central London, so it’s wonderful to have a spacious and stylish new apartment with an easy commute into the office,” said Ochan, “The transport connections are great and will become even better with the expected introduction of Crossrail. Woolwich itself is becoming a fantastic place to live in. It is perfectly located to enjoy the best of both worlds – with London’s culture and all the local amenities close by.”
Ochan took advantage of Help to Buy when he purchased his luxury apartment at Trinity Walk. He added: “Owning your home is something many people aspire to, so I was delighted that the Lovell Homes advisors helped me take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme - and the cost of our one bedroom apartment here in Woolwich offers great value too.”
Trinity Walk is a superb collection of 445 new-build one, two and three bedroom apartments, located a mile from the new Crossrail station being built in Woolwich.
First time buyers are spoilt for choice with each home offering plenty of space too - they have been designed to be larger than the average new-build recommendation
“I’m very happy here, and the team at Lovell Homes have been great. The interior of our apartment is really impressive too,” said Ochan. “I have a fitted kitchen, a stylish bathroom suite and fully fitted flooring throughout the apartment - all included in the price. I couldn’t have asked for more in my first home.”
Lovell Homes sales manager, Lea Hudson, said: “Trinity Walk is proving very popular because of its winning combination of stylish homes, value-for-money and superb transport links. It’s in a great location, close to everything buyers here could possibly need.
“And those, like Ochan, entering the property market for the first time are making very good use of London Help to Buy.
“It means it’s easier than ever for people to secure the finances to own the home they really want in this wonderful location. The team here is ready-and-waiting to guide potential buy-ers through the process.”
Lovell Homes’ designers have worked hard to create a strong visual impact at Trinity Walk - providing a sense of individuality and style. Each new home has been built to maximise space and light and is finished to a high specification to ensure an excellent level of comfort, se-curity and quality.
The London scheme is similar to the standard Help to Buy Equity Loan, but allows buyers in the capital to benefit from a 40% loan from the government on purchases of new-build homes under £600,000. All buyers need to do is pay a 5% deposit, with a mortgage of 55% to cover the rest of the costs.
When Crossrail arrives, journey times from Woolwich to Canary Wharf will be reduced to just eight minutes, and the City will be only 14 minutes away.
Address: Trinity Walk, Sandy Hill Lane, Woolwich, SE18 6PA
