The Porter Building – attractive new homes in the heart of Bermondsey Spa

Posted 4 April 2014 by Isabelle Grange

Leading developer Hyde New Homes will soon be launching the final phase of The Porter Building, the latest chapter in the award-winning Bermondsey Spa regeneration.

Comprising 38 private sale and eight affordable rent one- two- and three-bedroom new home apartments, residents will enter The Porter Building via a stunning full height glass atrium, which has been carefully designed around a landscaped central courtyard, providing private space for residents to enjoy.

The Porter Building was purposely designed to maximise the flow of natural daylight throughout the apartments, reducing the need to use artificial lighting. The apartments are beautifully appointed, with many having floor-to-ceiling doors and windows and sheltered balconies or patio gardens. The interiors come complete with high quality gloss kitchens with integrated appliances, bathrooms by Roca, Amtico dusky walnut flooring throughout the open plan living spaces and under-floor heating. Access-controlled parking and bicycle storage is also available.

Owners will also be able to benefit from using the Style Studio - a newly introduced service offering buyers the convenience of purchasing furniture packs and selecting window furnishings without having to leave their home.

Bermondsey Spa has undergone a widespread transformation during the last decade, given new life by The Hyde Group to become a highly desirable residential location, with a recently opened Tesco Metro, two health centres, an NHS dental surgery and new youth facilities at Salmon Youth Centre.

The Porter Building is perfectly positioned for those who work in the London Bridge and the City, which can be reached by foot in approximately just 15 and 20 minutes respectively. Bermondsey underground station is moments away, offering fast connections to Canary Wharf in five minutes, Waterloo in six minutes, Westminster in eight minutes and Bond Street in 12 minutes.

The surrounding area is vibrant and diverse: Bermondsey Street is lined with fashionable bars and cafes; Shad Thames is home to some of the capital's most prestigious riverside restaurants, while the Southbank is lined with some of London's favourite cultural attractions.

Debbie Small, director of Hyde New Homes said: "The Porter Building combines thoughtful design, high specification apartments and an unrivalled location to create an attractive offering for those seeking a new home in a vibrant location, within walking distance of some of the capital's hotspots and key working hubs. This is one of the last opportunities to buy into this highly successful regeneration project."

The final phase of homes in the Porter Building is due for completion in summer 2014, with prices expected to start in the region of £410,000.
