Downsizers in the big city – why Wembley Park is the place to be for those who want more for less  

Downsizers in the big city - why Wembley Park is the place to be for those who want more for less -1
  • Downsizers welcomed into one of London’s newest and most exciting neighbourhoods
  • Wembley Park is the ideal place to live, work and play for buyers who want stylish homes
  • Downsizers at Wembley Park enjoy great local facilities and fantastic transport connections

There are many reasons for downsizing your home, from ’empty nesters’ whose children have grown up and left, to those who simply want fewer rooms to clean and a reduction in their household bills and mortgage cost. A study by Key Retirement Solutions has found that one in five of those aged 55 and above would like to downsize, with the average person looking to raise £78,000 of equity by doing so. Helping their offspring get together a deposit for a home of their own was a key reason for downsizing.

Downsizers in the big city - why Wembley Park is the place to be for those who want more for less -1Whatever the reason, the convenience of the new Alto Apartments at Wembley Park, north west London, is the perfect choice for those looking to downsize within, or move to London, whilst maintaining an active lifestyle, busy social life and great transport connections. The apartments come with a 24-hour concierge service and on-site gym – perfect for those looking for a property that offers the added benefits of life in the big city.

Paul Hogarth, Head of Residential Sales for Quintain, the developer behind the contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments at Wembley Park, comments:

“Downsizing can be a very liberating experience. It’s a chance to clear out clutter and enjoy a neater, more stylish home in a great location. Those looking to downsize who view our Alto show homes are pleasantly surprised by the space and superb quality of our homes and the surrounding area. We have also included generous cupboard space inside the apartments, as well as additional basement space where residents can access private storage for non-everyday items, stored securely for their peace of mind.”

Downsizers in the big city - why Wembley Park is the place to be for those who want more for less -2Data from the Office for National Statistics shows that 13.2% of the population of the London Borough of Brent (where Wembley Park is located) is aged over 65. Projections indicate that the figure will rise to 32.8% by 2024. The rapid increase is likely to lead to increased demand from those who are keen to remain in the capital but looking for a smaller home in which to do so.

Quintain’s emphasis on building homes for real Londoners at Wembley Park means that those who buy at the site can pick up the perfect property surrounded by an established community, including LDO, with 50 shops, 20 restaurants and cafés and a nine screen Cineworld, making it the perfect place for shopping, eating and relaxing. There’s also The SSE Arena, Wembley and Wembley Stadium for entertainment and plenty of local running clubs, sports teams and nautical activities at the nearby Brent Reservoir for keeping fit. As if that wasn’t enough, the beauty of the Oxfordshire countryside is easily accessible by train, for those looking to spend their weekends outside of London.

Downsizers at Wembley Park not only have a lively local scene to enjoy, but can also pop into central London with ease thanks to the area’s excellent transport connections. Two Overground stations and three Tube lines (Jubilee, Metropolitan and Bakerloo) open up London through exceptionally quick journeys: Marylebone in 9 minutes; Baker Street in 12; Bond Street and Kings Cross in 19; Clapham Junction in 22; and London Bridge in 25.

It’s the perfect way to enjoy being outdoors without the hassle and expense of maintaining a garden. While others are weeding, mowing and maintaining garden furniture, those living at Alto Apartments can relax and enjoy being at the heart of so much greenery within London.

Available to purchase from £450,000, Alto Apartments provide downsizers with a cost effective means of relocating to a superb community in an exciting new neighbourhood for London.
