Recent research from ING Bank revealed homeowners in the UK are happier than those who rent. Just less than half of UK renters are happy with their situation, in comparison to the 80% that are content on the property ladder. For unhappy renters looking to make a move to home ownership in 2017, award-winning property developer Countryside’s development Parkside Place in Wembley is perfect for purchasers seeking an affordable investment. Available with the London Help to Buy scheme, these homes make ownership a viable and exciting prospect.
Accessible to a wide range of home hunters moving on to or up the property ladder, the London Help to Buy scheme allows purchasers to buy with as little as a 5% deposit. The Government will provide an equity loan of up to 40% of the property’s value, which is interest free for the first five years and twice the amount purchasers can receive when buying outside of London. Located in an enviable position opposite the historic Barnham Park in North London Borough of Brent, Parkside Place features a fantastic range of one, two, three-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom duplexes and three-bedroom townhouses priced from £340,000.
Matthew Higgs, Managing Director of Partnerships South at Countryside, comments: “With the current housing market, the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme offers purchasers an excellent opportunity to secure their dream home, and long-term happiness. Wembley is currently benefitting from a ten year regeneration programme, making it an increasingly sought-after location. Parkside Place is the perfect place for investment, offering residents convenient travel connections as well as plenty of green open spaces for leisure pursuits and a variety of shops and nightlife options to stay entertained and happy.”
The spacious apartments and duplexes at Parkside Place are situated in five elegant, modern designed buildings, which offer a variety of outdoor space for their residents to enjoy. The apartments in the Primrose and Regent Buildings benefit from access to the beautiful landscaped podium garden, as well as having a private outside space or balcony. While the duplex apartments feature a double height winter garden off the kitchen and living area. The Kensington Building with large balconies looking towards Barham Park also provides residents with a thoughtfully designed private courtyard, offering a tranquil place to relax.
All homes at Parkside Place offer contemporary interiors that have been thoughtfully designed to suit the needs of modern day lifestyles. Each apartment boasts large windows to maximise natural light and create fluid open plan living spaces. The contemporary kitchens feature fully integrated appliances including a ceramic electric hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Bathrooms are sleek with white sanitaryware featuring chrome accessories and a thermostatic shower to homes with en-suites and the properties include flooring throughout.
Located in the lively and exciting borough of Brent, Wembley Stadium and Arena regularly host high profile sporting fixtures, concerts and events. A thriving new complex of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops sits close to Parkside Place, including an exciting designer discount mall providing 75 outlet stores. In addition, Wembley is home to an Ikea store, one of the largest Tesco’s in the country and is only a short distance to Brent Cross Shopping Centre. For leisure opportunities, the historic Barham Park offers green open spaces to spend some time outdoors and the nearby Vale Farm Sports Centre features swimming, tennis and sports facilities.
Ideal for resident’s commuting into Central London, Parkside Place is less than half a mile from Sudbury Town, the nearest tube station on the Piccadilly Line. Direct tube services reach the West End in approximately half an hour. On the Overground line, Sudbury and Harrow Road station serves Marylebone station in just 14 minutes.
