As the economy recovers from the pandemic and we move towards a sense of normality, the summer property search season comes at the perfect time for buyers on the hunt for a home with a distinct community feel. Those looking for a home that is as versatile as their lifestyle should look no further than Oaklands Rise by Notting Hill Genesis. Situated in North West London, this exciting new development offers a range of two-bedroom apartments and on-site facilities that are perfect for socialising and entertaining guests. Prospective buyers can book a viewing at the show-home; a spacious two-bedroom duplex that perfectly exemplifies the standard of living buyers can expect here.
Available through Shared Ownership, the apartments at Oaklands Rise are at the centre of the £26 billion Old Oak and Park Royal redevelopment; epitomising the term, ‘metropolitan London living’. Stretching across 650 hectares, the wider development is on target to be one of the UK’s most connected spaces, with a planned green grid of secondary routes connecting the old and new neighbourhoods. Investment has been poured into local infrastructure, housing and jobs, in order to make this one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects.
Boasting a striking architectural design, Oaklands Rise benefits from plenty of outdoor space - including a podium level landscaped garden, green streetscape, generous balconies and select roof terraces. Residents can grab a coffee in the shared workspace or visit the affectionately named, ‘Hangout’, which will also offer opportunities for group activities such as yoga, lectures and film screenings in the future. Additional on-site facilities include the luxury of a designated concierge service and 24-hour reception and security.
James Munson, Head of Marketing for Notting Hill Genesis comments: “With the prospect of restrictions lifting, many home-hunters will be thinking about being able to entertain their family and friends again in a place they can be proud of, and enjoy. Oaklands Rise is a superb choice for this, with carefully considered open plan layouts and a plenty of outdoor space in our landscaped communal gardens. Residents have a chance to join a growing community that is set to flourish in years to come, and with the availability of Shared Ownership, this a great opportunity to buy a home in a location that’s set for an exciting future. We urge prospective buyers to book a viewing at our show home to fully appreciate everything this scheme has to offer.”
