The profound benefits of having an animal companion is proving to be increasingly pertinent during the pandemic; with studies indicating that 91% of dog owners, 89% of cat owners, and 86% of those whom own other animals claiming that their pets have helped them cope throughout the COVID outbreak[1]. Unfortunately, due to strict regulations, lack of space, or access to the outdoors, many home-owners residing in apartments are unable to fulfil their dream of living alongside a four-legged friend. Recognising this growing desire to own a home that can accomodate pets, Network Homes is pleased to announce that their stylishly appointed scheme, Evolution, offers a collection of affordable apartments that warmly welcomes homebuyers and their furry companions.*.

Situated in the flourishing west London neighbourhood of Southall, Evolution comprises a spacious and versatile collection of studios, one, two and three-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, as well as two, three- and four-bedroom duplexes. All homes benefit from open-plan layouts that easily cater for those living with pets. A welcome expanse of private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace, and easy access to a shared communal courtyard garden also creates a pet-friendly space to get outside for those all-important morning walks.  Selected homes come complete with wheelchair access, and limited allocated private parking.

Lisa Ley, Head of Sales and Marketing at Network Homes comments:


“Here at Network Homes, we strive to achieve a high degree of satisfaction from our customers in any way possible; which is why we are thrilled to announce that we are welcoming homebuyers and their pets into our Southall scheme, Evolution. The opportunity to own an apartment in London that permits domestic animals is a rare luxury, and not one to be missed. All properties here are ready and available to move into, so we urge prospective purchasers who are also pet owners to book a viewing as soon as possible.”

The homes available at Evolution have been thoughtfully designed to offer luxury living without compromising on practical convenience. Each property has been designed to offer an impressive sense of space, with generous open plan layouts providing the perfect pad for residents with energetic pets. Rich walnut tones are married with brushed metal throughout the apartments to create a strong sense of contemporary urbanity. This is then combined with fresh white matte walls and ceilings to provide home-owners with a blank canvas; allowing them to truly make their property their own.

Elegant kitchens feature concealed handles, soft-close doors and two-tone designer units, as well as a selection of fully integrated luxury appliances courtesy of smeg; including an oven, ceramic hob, fridge/ freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Additionally, a Recon stone worktop and splashback houses the stainless-steel sink, and monobloc mixer tap. Bathrooms are equally well appointed; with stylish mirrored cabinets, chrome fittings, and heated towel rails offering the perfect space to relax and unwind. Bedrooms are designed to be clutter free spaces; and are completed with oatmeal carpet and fully fitted wardrobes. Additional features include audio or visual entry phone system, on-site cycle storage, and for home-owners with cats and dogs - each home benefits from its own balcony or terrace, as well as access to a beautifully landscaped communal courtyard garden.

For the discerning shopper or diner, Southall boasts a vast array of colourful shops, restaurants and markets that are sure to get the taste buds tingling, as well as offering leisure pursuits at the historic Himalaya Palace Cinema and 600 seat Beck Theatre. The area has plenty to offer two and four legged residents alike; with the vast green open spaces of Brent Lodge Park, Osterley Park and Kew situated nearby, as well as a peaceful towpath along the Grand Union Canal – perfect for a leisurely stroll.

Situated in Zone four, Evolution is just seven minutes away from Southall mainline train station on foot; providing access to London Paddington in just 17 minutes. Southall will also become a station on the new Elizabeth Line, which will dramatically reduce journey times – whisking travellers to the West End in 17 minutes, and Canary Wharf in around half an hour. Evolution also caters for those travelling by car, with the M4 situated close by, and the M25 a 15-minute drive away. For international travel, Heathrow Airport is also 17 minutes away.
