Show Homes Open In North London

Posted 2 December 2021 by Keith Osborne

Aitch Group and Catalyst have launched show apartments in Finchley and Muswell Hill respectively...

A show home visit is always recommended, to see first-hand the quality of the new homes for sale, and house-hunters in north London now have opportunities to arrange a viewing of newly launched, professionally fitted show apartments at two developments in the area.

Aitch Group has launched new fewer than six new show apartments in a variety of designs located across multiple floors within Park Place in Finchley, created to showcase the lifestyle on offer within the development, with different layouts and prices, illustrating what buyers can get for their money. The apartments are ready for immediate move in, perfect for those looking to be in their new home before Christmas.

Park Place on Ballards Lane in Finchley consists of the transformation of the former Finchley Metropolitan Police Station site into a new residential development providing 41 modern studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, ranging from 410 sq ft to 924 sq ft, and some retail space. Located opposite Victoria Park, it provides homes for buyers who wish to live near open green space whilst still being close to central London, with West Finchley and Finchley Central stations both just a 10-minute walk away

Natural materials and modern finishes are used throughout the apartments, further emphasising the calming essence of Park Place and its surroundings, a beautiful pairing of bright, contemporary architecture alongside the adjacent open spaces and greenery. Neutral colour palettes on the walls, floors and kitchen furnishings bounce natural light around the interiors whilst the full-height glazing provides views over the park. Each show apartment is dressed using a slightly different colour scheme for the soft furnishings ranging from monochromatic and art deco, Scandi décor, to full of bright pops of colour so buyers will be able to view at least one apartment that is similar to their own design tastes. Clean and modern, whether purchased unfurnished or furnished, Park Place is a great canvas for buyers to make their new home truly their own.

Each apartment is designed to a high specification including a fully fitted Nobilia kitchen with Bosch fitted appliances, timber flooring throughout hallways, living rooms and kitchens, contemporary black switches and sockets and fitted wardrobes to the master bedrooms. The apartments also benefit from a passenger lift to all floors, a reception area with secure post boxes for each apartment, bike storage and parking spaces available.

Chelsea Reynolds, director at Aitch Group, said: “Park Place offers buyers a park-side home, just a few footsteps from greenery but within easy reach of bustling city life. As the development is completed now with the show apartments furnished, we are delighted to be able to offer them ready for move-ins before Christmas.”

Prices at Park Place start from £350,000 unfurnished and there’s the opportunity to purchase the furniture if requested. Find out more at www.aitchgroup.com.

The FoliumThe Folium

Catalyst is welcoming first-time buyers to a new show apartment at The Folium in leafy Muswell Hill, which offers a number of one- and two-bedroom Shared Ownership properties.

Inspired by nearby Coppetts’s Wood, a historic 36-acre woodland a five-minute drive away, the attractive show apartment incorporates a diverse mix of natural materials. A mahogany room divider becomes the focal point of the living room, marking a division between the dining and working from home section. Meanwhile, a patchwork faux-fur rug sits on top of Amtico Spacia flooring, embellished with bronze metallics and flashes of greenery in the planting.

In the bedroom, a decadent palette of greys and blacks is contrasted by statement paintings with pink florals, reminiscent of the flora and fauna found in Muswell Hill’s green spaces.

Markus Kendall-Young, director of sales and marketing at Catalyst, commented: “Our vision for The Folium show apartment was to capture the essence of life in this leafy neighbourhood. That meant incorporating lots of natural materials, like woods and leather, whilst showcasing how well-designed these homes are for modern living. Recently, flexibility has become key to any modern home, as it becomes not just a place to sleep and eat, but your workplace, gym and social space. By zoning the L-shaped living room into dedicated lounging, dining and working areas, we’ve demonstrated just how much can be achieved in one room.”

The Folium has been designed to celebrate its green surroundings, softening the architecture with extensive landscape, incorporating mature trees, green spaces and planting. Homes are built to a high standard, each with fully integrated appliances, with all homes offering a private balcony.

Well-connected for residents to explore London and beyond, Muswell Hill has good bus connections, with the W7 taking commuters to Finsbury Park, where there’s tube and train services into central London. Nearby Alexandra Palace train station also provides a train into Moorgate in just 20 minutes.

Prices start from £103,750 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment (FMV: £415,000) and £134,375 for a 25% share of a two-bedroom apartment (FMV: £537,500). Find out more at catalyst.homes.
