Joseph Homes has just launched some new homes in Balham, south London, which are built in line with its own Live Well principles in design, lifestyle and environmental footprint.

New to The Tramyard are six Garden Villas, spacious homes set on Balham High Road that are spread across two floors, offering two large double bedrooms, each with their own en suite, and views of the development’s central landscaped courtyard from two private outdoor spaces.

The company has sourced environmentally friendly materials such as vegan paints and woodwork finishes all with low-VOCs (volatile organic compounds), pollen and fine particle dust filters to alleviate symptoms for hayfever and asthma sufferers and taken away gas boilers making homes more energy efficient. Mechanical Heat Ventilation Systems have also been installed in the Garden Villas to replenish all living spaces with pure filtered air, while extracting pollutants. The added space and hyperoptic broadband are pluses at a time when working from home is becoming more popular.

The TramyardThese homes, designed to “create a seamless link with natural serenity”, come with their own balconies off bright kitchen and dining areas, a private patio space on the lower ground floor looking over the communal courtyard and space with light boxes up to street level, where residents can feature their own green, living walls.

Sean Ruane, sales director of Joseph Homes, commented: “Homeowners in city areas are not often exposed to much greenery so, with our Garden Villas we wanted to ensure our home owners will have plenty of light and outdoor space, essential for living well. Buyers are increasingly aware of how their homes can make an impact on the environment, as well as their own wellbeing and having outdoor space is key to both. Adding to the fact The Tramyard sits within easy reach of Clapham, Tooting and Wandsworth Commons, ensures nature lovers will get the best of both worlds.”

The TramyardEach home has high ceilings of 2.7 metres in most rooms, large floor-to-ceiling windows that ensure an abundance of natural light and are delivered with the highest-quality specification and exacting attention to detail.

Balham itself offers an eclectic quality of life with a wealth of local artisan food shops, independent eateries, bars, restaurants and shops on the doorstep of The Tramyard, ensuring buyers don’t need to venture too far for local amenities.

Balham has excellent transport connections by rail and underground both within a few minutes’ walk of The Tramyard with the Northern line giving fast access into the city and beyond. For those looking for excellent cycle networks, The Tramyard is a leisurely 30-minute ride into town and boasts a large bike stall, accommodating for 128 cycles.

Prices start from £799,995 for a two-bedroom, 980-sq-ft Garden Villa.
