London’s population is predicted to rise rapidly over the next two years, with the number of households within the Royal Borough of Greenwich alone anticipated to grow by 51,400 (50.7%) by 2024[1]. This demonstrates the increasing need for high-quality new homes, like Bellway Homes’ latest waterside development, The River Gardens, in Royal Greenwich, SE10.

With the average apartment prices in the Greenwich area currently £545,064[2], The River Gardens offers first-time buyers a more affordable option for home ownership. One-bedroom apartments with a river view start from £445,000, with Help to Buy available, proving excellent value for money with an unparalleled Thames-side location, amenities and connections. Residents will also have exclusive access to a private gym, swimming pool and a 24-hour concierge service.

Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Homes, comments: “With its prime location and an abundance of culture on the doorstep, it’s no wonder Greenwich is proving popular, not only with locals but with many buyers, who are moving to the area too.

“We are providing much needed homes with a desirable Thames-front setting and Help to Buy, so we are seeing many first-time buyers here too, who we’re pleased to help on to the ladder. We would urge anyone interested to come and visit our show home soon to see the views for themselves.”

All apartments are finished to a high standard throughout, including open plan living spaces, balconies and quality kitchen appliances. A typical spacious one-bedroom apartment offers plenty of storage, a large bedroom with fitted wardrobes, contemporary bathroom fixtures and an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with doors that open out onto a private balcony, so residents can experience the full benefits of their unique location.

Greenwich, the ‘home of time’, is a cultural hub famous for its Maritime history including the last-surviving tea clipper, the Cutty Sark, and London’s oldest enclosed royal park. Greenwich also offers an excellent selection of restaurants and bars, alongside a large variety of shops to satisfy all retail needs ranging from high-street brands and designer boutiques to the market selling organic produce. Meanwhile residents can enjoy a range of entertainment with global artists performing every week at the O2 and a wealth of pop-up bars, cinemas and galleries.

The combination of five-star facilities and first-class connections make The River Gardens a sought-after location, particularly for those who commute to work. With the Cutty Stark DLR Station just a short stroll from the development, residents can traverse the city with ease thanks to frequent services to key London locations like Canary Wharf in 13 minutes, Bank in 19 minutes and Stratford’s Westfields shopping centre in 22 minutes. The closest railways station is Maze Hill which runs regular and direct services to Greenwich, London Bridge and Cannon Street.
