According to research from online estate agency, Tepilo, it takes potential purchasers on average only 27 minutes to decide whether a new home is right for them. With first impressions so important, Countryside has recently launched a new show apartment and marketing suite at landmark development East City Point in Canning Town, E16. The show home offers prospective purchasers the opportunity to see first-hand, what life at the development would be like.
Located close to Custom House station, just minutes from Canary Wharf, East City Point is in the heart of a friendly and thriving neighbourhood, which has built on the success of London 2012 to become one of London’s flagship regeneration projects. The recently released two-bedroom apartments are perfect for savvy buyers keen to invest in this up and coming regeneration hotspot.
Amanda Nesbitt, Associate Sales & Marketing Director at Countryside Partnerships South comments: “The new show home and marketing suite at East City Point have been designed to represent exactly what London buyers can aspire to. We understand that prospective buyers look for a convenient, contemporary new home in an exciting location, which is also close to their place of work. We are very excited to welcome house hunters to visit the new two bedroom show apartment at East City Point, so they can see for themselves all that the development has to offer.”
Each of the two bedroom apartments have been thoughtfully designed with stylish open plan living spaces, featuring environmentally friendly features and a high-quality specification. The contemporary kitchens are fitted with sleek handleless units, contrasting worktops and integrated appliances including electric oven and separate microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Contemporary bathrooms and en suites feature a white bath with driftwood finish bath panel, chrome basin mixer tap and bath shower. Large windows and generous outdoor space such as balconies or terraces help maximise light and space, offering residents style and comfort.
Canning Town is currently undergoing a £3.7 billion regeneration scheme due for completion in 2024, making this area a smart choice for investment. Alongside developments such as East City Point, plans for the rejuvenation of Canning Town include the redevelopment of Rathbone Market and Canning Town’s new Hallsville Quarter, which will offer a number of high street retailers, including a new Morrison’s supermarket and leisure facilities, as well as updating Custom House station. Residents will also benefit from better quality streets and open spaces.
With a commute time of just four minutes to Canary Wharf and 15 minutes to Bank via the Jubilee Line, the development is an ideal base for those that work in London’s financial districts. The DLR also stops at Canning Town station with its new extension linking to Stratford International station for local services to Woolwich and Tower Gateway, as well as Eurostar services to Paris, Brussels and beyond. City Airport is within close proximity for those travelling frequently abroad.
The arrival of Crossrail in December 2018 will further improve transport links across London, putting Custom House station just 14 minutes from the West End. The Emirates Air Line cable car connects with Greenwich Peninsula from the nearby Royal Docks and The O2 arena, Europe’s largest entertainment venue, is just one stop away in North Greenwich.
