With the average asking price for a one-bedroom apartment sitting at a whopping £844,875, it is little wonder the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is recognised as one of London’s most exclusive property hot-spots. Home to Kensington Palace and Gardens, the Royal Albert Hall, and the popular Exhibition Road – which plays host to several major museums and academic establishments - the area is famed for its high-end, and quintessentially British aesthetic. With this in mind, award winning housing provider, Peabody, is proud to unveil a chic new collection of one-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments here, at their dynamic scheme, Boulevard, Royal Warwick Square.
Neighbouring the charming Holland Park, as well as a number of London’s most popular cultural attractions, Boulevard offers a stunning selection of affordable apartments at The Berkeley Group’s development, Royal Warwick Square. The scheme comprises just 26 one-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, with many coming complete with their own balcony or terrace, as well as a dedicated concierge service. These top-tier homes will be available to purchase by those already living in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea; meaning local home-hunters could be in with a chance to secure a home in this prestigious postcode more affordably than if they were to purchase a property outright.
Andrew Peglau, Peabody’s Assistant Director of Marketing comments:
“This superior selection of Shared Ownership homes will offer buyers a unique opportunity to own a home in one of London’s most upmarket locations by purchasing a share of a property’s full market value. The nearby Exhibition Road with its notable British museums, vast green spaces, and fantastic shopping facilities are huge selling points for Boulevard, and the chance to live here is, undoubtedly, a luxury. Due to the unmistakably rare nature of this opportunity, we anticipate demand will be high. We therefore urge interested buyers to register their interest as soon as possible.”
