According to research from CV-Library, over two thirds of the UK’s workers lose up to 16 days a year commuting to and from work, plus over a third commute for up to two hours a day.  For city workers looking to cut their commute, Custom House is an ideal base, offering fast connections into Canary Wharf on the DLR. Professionals keen to find a comfortable, yet convenient place to call home will make a smart choice to live at East Thames’ brand new development, Royal Dock Gardens. Located in the heart of Docklands, E16, over 70 per cent of the homes are already sold.
Royal Dock Gardens comprises a contemporary collection of 18 one and two bedroom shared ownership apartments in Custom House. Benefiting from being on the doorstep of London’s financial district, the development is within close proximity to London City Airport, perfect for professionals who often have to travel further afield for work, with regular flights inside Europe and beyond.
Tony Harker, East Thames’ Director of Sales & Marketing comments: “Whilst enjoying all the benefits of being located within close proximity of Canary Wharf, Royal Dock Gardens also offers city workers the affordability of the shared ownership scheme. Whether they are looking to buy on their own or have been saving with a partner or friend, shared ownership can offer extra support for aspirational home buyers, meaning it is not necessary to compromise on location. With only a few homes remaining at the development, I recommend that potential purchasers register their interest as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.”
The Custom House area is currently undergoing a £3.7 billion regeneration project, which is changing the Royal Docks physically, socially and economically, including the creation of more jobs, plus better quality streets and open spaces. Investment will also be placed into replacing transport services and facilities, including a new Crossrail station in Custom House, opening in 2018.
All homes at Royal Dock Gardens boast a high specification with attention to detail paramount. The apartments feature views of the communal gardens, integrated kitchen appliances, oak hardwood flooring to the open plan living and dining areas and fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms. Residents will also enjoy a private balcony or terrace, with many apartments benefiting from additional Juliette balconies or oriel windows, providing plenty of natural light. There is also access to lifts, bicycle storage, a telephone entry system and parking to every two bedroom home.
Royal Dock Gardens is ideally situated to enjoy all that London has to offer. With Prince Regent DLR train station only a four-minute walk from the development, residents will benefit from quick access to vibrant East London providing a host of restaurants, bars and nightlife. For connecting to other parts of the country, residents can travel by road via the A13, which links to the North Circular and the A12.
