London New Homes Round-up

Posted 24 February 2020 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team looks at new build homes across London to suit a wide spectrum of requirements and budgets...

London's housing market appears to be bucking the usual post-Christmas trend of being painfully slow, with estate agents receiving plenty of interest from buyers while sales of the priciest homes have spiked following the General Election. 

In the month since the election sales of £2 million-plus homes have leapt up by 69% year-on-year, according to analysis firm LonRes. 

We’ve found several brand new London housing developments to get excited about, from some that are offering smaller studios and one-bed apartments to suit investors or first time buyer professionals, right through to luxury villas and spacious townhouses with a heftier price tag. 

Goodluck Hope in Poplar, East London (Johns and Co) 

Located on the historic Leamouth Peninsula, Goodluck Hope offers fantastic views along the River Thames in what was once a busy section of the London Docklands. 

Once it's complete the development will deliver 804 new homes and 2,000 square metres of commercial space, creating a new East London riverside community. The design, influenced by the area's industrial past, incorporates architectural features inspired by the Docklands warehouses. Residents will have exclusive use of on-site facilities such as a fully-equipped gym, swimming pool, cinema, health spa, business centre, lounge and a 24-hour concierge service. 

The community will also incorporate brand new restaurants, shops, bars and outside spaces where locals can relax, eat and shop, and the Wharf Brewing Company will open a brewhouse where visitors can learn more about the whole brewing process and enjoy a drink or two. 

Commuters will find great transport links into the City, Canary Wharf and beyond, with the tube, DLR and bus stops all close by. And London City Island is just a stone's throw away, now home to the English National Ballet, the London Film School, and restaurants, parkland, shops and leisure facilities. 

Prices: Currently available homes are priced from £399,999 to £990,000.

Hayes Village in Hayes, Hillingdon, West London (Barratt London) 

With more than 75% of the first phase already reserved, the two-bedroom homes at West London's newest village will be ready to move into from this summer. 

There will be more than 1,300 homes on the historic site of the former Nestle Factory in Hayes, an area that's currently undergoing major regeneration. Crossrail is set to serve Hayes & Harlington Station from 2021, making it better-connected than ever – with Heathrow just five minutes from there, and Bond Street 20 minutes via Crossrail. 

The development will incorporate a new public park, a residents' gym, a running track and plenty of green, open spaces and children's play areas. There will be car parking, cycle storage and free car club membership available for residents, and a part of the local canal that was previously inaccessible is being opened up, with space for a shop or cafe there. 

Prices: £412,000 to £465,000. Deposits from £20,600 with London Help to Buy.

No.1 Millbrook, Mill Hill, North London (Joseph Homes) 

Offering a tranquil village-style lifestyle that's difficult to find such a short distance from the city, No. 1 Millbrook is made up of 149 homes in one of London's most sought-after areas. There's a choice of three- and four-bedroom town houses and one- and two-bedroom contemporary apartments, suiting a good mix of lifestyles. 

Despite its quiet feel, Mill Hill Broadway is a hub of activity with a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops alongside open spaces where residents can escape from the stresses of hectic city life. Scratchwood and Moat Mount together form the biggest woodland area in Barnet and, along with Arrandene Open Space, provide a habitat for a whole host of flora and fauna. 

The area is well-connected to everything in London. On the Northern Line from Mill Hill East it takes about 24 minutes to reach Euston, 31 to Waterloo, 32 to Holborn, 33 to Victoria and 35 to Bank. Thameslink from Mill Hill Broadway to West Hampstead takes about eight minutes, while London St Pancras International is about 22 minutes. 

Prices: £474,995 to £1,224,995.

Affinity House at Grand Union in Alperton, Wembley, Northwest London (St George) 

Grand Union will transform this part of North West London, creating a unique canal-side neighbourhood of Manhattan-style one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses. 

Set across 11 acres of landscaped gardens with waterside walks, Grand Union includes residents' facilities such as a lounge and ten-pin bowling alley. There will also be a waterside piazza lined with cafes, bars and restaurants and home to a community centre. 

The location of Grand Union – a seven-minute walk from Stonebridge Park Station in Zone 3, on the Bakerloo line and Watford DC Line – provides easy access to the City and the West End. Other local stations include Alperton on the Piccadilly line; Hanger Lane on the Central line; and Wembley Central on the Bakerloo line and London Overground's Watford DC Line. 

Prices: £549,000 to £865,000.
