New Shared Ownership in Stratford

The east end quarter of the capital has become one of the most desired locations for London’s homebuyers, drawn to the appealing mix of vibrant venues, industrial heritage and a buoyant community spirit. One east London neighbourhood that has captured the interest of property buyers is Stratford. For home hunters keen to make this thriving hub their home, Peabody is preparing to launch the next phase of Shared Ownership homes at their popular Bridge East development at Legacy Wharf on Saturday the 14th of May. Situated within walking distance from the heart of Stratford and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, purchasers here are perfectly positioned to enjoy some of London’s most exciting amenities, without paying a premium price.

The exciting new phase at Bridge East will offer an exclusive and contemporary collection of one and three-bedroom apartments that are well placed to enjoy everything this popular east London quarter offers. Stratford itself has experienced a rapid transformation, undergoing one of the UK’s largest regeneration programs on the back of the 2012 Olympic games. Now a flourishing hotspot of fantastic retail venues, a buzzing dining and social scene and world-class sporting facilities – the area has become a magnet for young professionals keen to be a part of this vibrant district whilst being able to witness its continuing growth. Available to purchase with Shared Ownership, purchasers who are eager to step on the ladder here will be able to take advantage of the lower-level deposit required when using the Shared Ownership scheme – unlocking access to the London locations that they may have considered out of reach.

Forming part of the wider development at Legacy Wharf, the homes at Bridge East occupy the Artisan Apartment building.
