We make homes for London's
city makers

Pocket Living is a property developer with a difference.

We sell well-designed homes to local people so the people who make a city can also make it their home.

Our compact Pocket homes are sold outright at a discount of at least 20% than the surrounding market rate. They’re only for first time buyers who live or work locally; we call them city makers.
Meet some Pocket buyers.

A small number of Pocket Edition homes, perfectly designed for city living, are also available without restriction to anyone from across London.

Take a look at our projects.

Affordable homes
that stay affordable

Pocket Living opened for business in 2003 with a mission to develop compact apartments for the millions of young, middle-earning Londoners who contribute to their city in so many ways but can't afford to buy their first home.

Pocket homes are special. They’re compact, sold at a discount and they’re only available to local buyers who earn below a certain amount.

Pocket homes are defined as ‘intermediate affordable’ housing and we have an annual checking process to ensure they remain in the affordable arena in perpetuity. Now we also include some open market homes in our larger schemes, called Pocket Edition, which are available to anyone.

Smart buildings full of
proud homeowners

Our buildings are designed to help our residents create friendly communities, and to be more affordable to run. They’re always near good transport links to help our residents get around.

While Pocket homes are only available to local people who earn below a certain amount, Pocket Edition homes are available to anyone, giving more people the chance to enjoy living in a Pocket building.

Great design
for city living

We work smart on every development we build.

Importantly, we have an award-winning design for our apartments that makes the best possible use of space, and we use good quality but not extravagant materials. We also work closely with local authorities to free up urban sites that are in great locations for our customers.

Pocket Living is also a leading provider of modular homes, using the latest factory technologies to deliver high quality more quickly.

All of this means we can offer attractive, well-located homes for a fair price.
