London’s first time buyers have made it clear that having access to outdoor spaces is really important. In the age of COVID-19, city makers have felt first-hand the difference this can make – one of our residents recently told us that the terrace in their development ‘saved them during lockdown’.
Our design ethos is to build homes designed for city living, and a key element of this is to include shared spaces in every Pocket Living development. Ample communal spaces encourage a sense of community, and our rooftop terraces have become particularly popular. Here are a few of our favourites.
Sail Street and Juxon Street SE11 was the second Pocket Living development built in Lambeth, and the buildings feature stunning communal rooftop terraces with great views across central London. Residents can be found enjoying sunsets in the evenings and gathering with their neighbours on sunny days.
Our green terracotta-glazed building in Wandsworth, Mapleton Crescent SW18, is 27 storeys high and overlooks the gently-flowing River Wandle. Its landscaped roof terrace on the 23rd floor offers uninterrupted views across London – see the impressive view for yourself here.
Moving over to West London, our landmark development Bollo Lane W4 features some of the best views in Ealing, with two spacious rooftop terraces furnished with ping pong tables, sun loungers and tables and chairs. The unobstructed views stretch as far as Waterloo and Canary Wharf.
Varcoe Road SE16 in Southwark has not one, not two, but three rooftop terraces. There’s a small terrace on the first floor, as well as furnished roof terraces with plants and shrubs on the sixth and seventh floors. These outside spaces are often used by residents for yoga and sunbathing, and they’re also ideal for having gatherings with neighbours.
Outside spaces are incredibly important, improving people’s health and well-being and offering a sense of community. If you’re looking to buy a London property with access to outside spaces, register here to stay up to date on our upcoming developments. We are currently selling Pocket homes in Barking and Dagenham, Croydon and Haringey, and all three of these developments feature spacious terraces for all residents to enjoy.
