With city centre locations having recently made an impressive comeback, demand for homes within city centres has risen by 35%, with apartments in particular experiencing almost a 40% peak in interest. As the UK’s desirable capital city reawakens, homebuyers who are in search of a stylish city pad where they can make the most of London’s vibrant social scene should look towards Dockside at Millharbour where Notting Hill Genesis has just launched a stunning new show apartment. Offered with Shared Ownership, this superb collection of one and two-bedroom homes places purchasers within easy reach of some of the UK’s most renowned entertainment venues.
Occupying a prominent position within one of the capital’s most dynamic waterside postcodes, Dockside at Millharbour enjoys a tranquil setting within a beautifully landscaped courtyard in the heart of London. Docksides’ central London location means residents here can enjoy access to a unique combination of thriving locations along with an abundance of open green spaces that surround the development; delivering an exceptional standard of living for less. Just a 10-minute walk away residents can make the most of Canary Wharf’s vibrant commercial district with a variety of retailers, restaurants, bars and entertainment; something for everyone to enjoy.
Explaining the inspiration behind the design for the new show apartment at Dockside, Rebecca Tucker, Director at Suna Interior Designcomments: “We really wanted to tap into the target buyer profile and for these apartments it is predominantly professional couples and singles who want the best of both worlds – easy access to the variety of venues and amenities in central London, as well as the local restaurants and bars and nearby locations like Greenwich that offer open green spaces. All this led us to design a scheme that reflects a young, professional and aspirational buyer, whilst maintaining elements of high-end luxury. The spacious apartment allowed us to incorporate the all-important working from home function, plus dining space that combines a generous balcony too. We chose a colour palette of golds and mustards with touches of elegant black and brass on the furniture creating a luxury feel that this particular market is looking for, with artwork, styling and accessories playing a key role in bringing style and individuality to the show home.”
Each contemporary apartment has been thoughtfully designed to maximise the available space along with a high quality specification that also features the added benefit of comfort cooling for those warmer months of the year. Many apartments feature spacious open plan layouts to create an impressive sense of space and light throughout; with others enjoying separate kitchen, living and dining spaces. Stylish two-tone kitchens come complete with a high-quality collection of Smeg integrated appliances, leading to an elegant dining space and spacious private balcony where residents can enjoy a superb cityscape outlook. Bedrooms are generously sized and offer fitted wardrobes, bathrooms are equally well-designed and offer a sophisticated boutique hotel-style design. A large storage cupboard ensures the apartment is kept clutter-free, in addition to dark walnut flooring and sumptuous carpeting.
City lovers are well placed to take advantage of some of the capital’s best shopping, nightlife venues, restaurants and events close to home; including outdoor screenings at the nearby Canada Square Park. The O2 Arena is just a stone’s throw away via the Jubilee Line at Canary Wharf station, and is home to an array of shopping outlets, bars, and eateries that are sure to get the taste buds tingling. For food enthusiasts, Canary Wharf is the perfect outlet and truly lives up to its growing reputation as a foodie hub, dishing up a wide range of alfresco restaurants to enjoy. Outdoor enthusiasts are at home here with a range of greenspaces dotted throughout the urban landscape including Jubilee Park which offers a roof garden built above Canary Wharf’s underground station, and the Green Flag awarded Sir John McDougall Gardens. Just a 16-minute walk away, 32 acres of countryside at Mudchute Park and Farm provide a serene space for residents to escape the hustle and bustle of London living.
