The average property price in Deptford is 26.5% less than the London average, according to Foxtons’ recent market data, making the area a great spot for those wanting to get on to the property ladder. This, coupled with the regeneration of Deptford makes it an attractive option for first-time buyers. Bellway Homes is now offering stamp duty paid or help to buy on a selection of two-bedroom duplexes and three-bedroom apartments at its Kent Wharf development in the London Borough of Lewisham, ideal for those who want to buy their first home.
The interior layout for a two-bedroom duplex follows a modern, on-trend style with storage space in the hallway, a large bathroom and a double bedroom on the lower level. Upstairs, there is an open-plan kitchen and living area with integrated kitchen appliances, and a master bedroom with an en suite shower room and built-in wardrobe. Many of the apartments include private balconies, offering an outlook of London skyline. Residents will also have the luxury of a concierge service and a well-equipped gym at the development.
Emma Denton, Head of Sales at Bellway Thames Gateway, comments: “As one of the more affordable areas in London, Deptford offers the luxury of living in the Capital without the daunting price tag. These spacious apartments at Kent Wharf give residents the opportunity to experience the hustle and bustle of city life, without compromising on the quality of their homes.
“We have seen great interest in this development already and we are now offering stamp duty paid or Help to Buy on a selection of larger plots, which we hope will help first-time buyers to get on the property ladder. We encourage those who are interested in the development to visit our show homes for themselves, and see all that Deptford has to offer.”
