The UK Department of Health recommends that adults should aim to walk as often as possible in order to maintain a healthy weight, increase cardiovascular fitness, reduce feelings of stress and anxiety and improve productivity[1]. During these unusual times, where much of our day is spent inside, it has never been more important to explore our surroundings by walking, running or cycling, and reap the rewards of the great outdoors. With this in mind, home-hunters in search of a property that can look after their practical and physical needs should look no further than Notting Hill Genesis’ stunning apartment scheme, Royal Albert Wharf. Situated on the famed Royal Docks in East London, the latest collection of homes here benefits from both park and waterside living – offering the perfect solution to those aiming to achieve a more active lifestyle.

Set across two impressive landmark buildings, and positioned on either side of the forthcoming park, Northern Square, the aptly named ‘Parkside’ at Royal Albert Wharf comprises a brand-new release of one-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments. Forming an integral part of a flourishing new community, all properties here offer spacious interiors, and come complete with a private balcony – some of which boasting views of the park. A number of amenities can be found nearby, including a concierge, café and a forthcoming restaurant, gym and nursery.

James Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis, comments:

 

“It goes without saying that keeping active has tremendous health benefits, and during a period where home-working takes up much of the day and we can be sedentary for longer, it’s important to step outside and get our bodies moving. Royal Albert Wharf is the perfect choice for buyers hoping to do so. The development is perfectly placed to enjoy both park and waterside living; with the upcoming park, Northern Square situated adjacent to the brand-new collection of one-bedroom homes, and tranquil riverside views just moments away on the south side of the development.”

Each and every one-bedroom home at Parkside offers prospective first-time buyers a superior standard of living; with spacious internal layouts married together with a superb specification to accommodate busy lifestyles. Kitchens are designed to be sleek and practical, with wall and base units in white gloss, and a range of integrated Zanussi appliances, including ovens fridge/freezers, and washer/dryers. Bathrooms are equally polished in design, with large format ceramic wall and floor tiling, Ideal Standard sanitaryware, vanity units and full width boutique-hotel style mirrors. Bedrooms are built to be spacious sanctuaries for relaxing; with cosy wool-mix carpets, large built-in wardrobes and LED downlights.

Residents at Royal Albert Wharf are exceedingly well situated; with an excellent range of outdoor spaces, amenities and travel options epitomising the work ‘convenience’. In addition to the nearby park and generous stretch of the River Thames – which can be accessed via the Capital Ring walkway - Beckton Park, the Royal Victoria Gardens and the Thames Barrier Park are also nearby; giving health-conscious residents a wealth of outdoor hubs for walking, running, or cycling. 

Shopping and leisure amenities are abundant at Royal Albert Wharf; Gallions Reach shopping park is just seven-minutes away by bus, and offers a variety of supermarket options, well-known clothing brands and popular eateries. For those looking to venture a little further afield, Westfield in Stratford can be reached in just 23 minutes via DLR.

A little further out, there are a number of popular haunts that are perfect for a brunch with friends or a dinner date once government restrictions allow; from Tom’s Kitchen and the Iberica in Canary Wharf to a diverse range of gastro pubs and restaurants in the East End. For a Friday night tipple, there is a plethora of bars within half an hour of the development. The popular Galyons Bar and Kitchen, for example, is just four minutes away on foot; whilst the nearby Canning Town also hosts an array of choices.

Those living at Royal Albert Wharf benefit from great transport links. Gallions Reach DLR Station in Zone 3 is just five minutes away on foot; providing access to Canning Town in 11 minutes, and Canary Wharf in 19. London Bridge and Waterloo are likewise less than half an hour away by train. Bus services will whisk travellers towards Gallions Reach Shopping Centre, East Beckton station, and Falmouth Gardens, and the Royal Wharf Pier will become a new stop on the Thames water boat service; offering yet another alternative and scenic method of transport.

Prices start from £78,750 for a 25% share with Shared Ownership requiring a deposit of less than £8,000 subject to mortgage availability.
