Homes with a view in Lambeth

Sail and Juxon St SE11, all set for Spring!

 

It’s the first day of Spring, and for the first time in what seems like months, London’s city makers are starting to think about spending time outside again.

So it’s great timing that our gorgeous new buildings in North Lambeth, Sail and Juxon St SE11, have outside space to suit all residents.

When you walk through the covered entrance at Juxon St SE11, you enter a wonderful walled courtyard garden with benches underlit by LEDs and pretty young trees.  It will be a great place for residents to meet, mingle and hang out.

Hello Mountearl Gardens SW16!

Mountearl Gardens SW16 is another great example of the way Pocket Living brings architectural quality to areas of London popular with first time buyers.  We’re really proud of our latest scheme which made creative use of this site set on the corner of the handsome estate off Leigham Court Road.  Previously home to old garages, we worked with HKR Architects to create a building comprised of one, two and three storey blocks that optimises the site without compromising the views of existing residents.

Buying a home in your local area – the tale of Thomas Golden

 

Become a homeowner in the area where you grew up – Pocket makes it happen!

 

The idea of buying a home where you grew up seems a bit of a pipe-dream – pie in the sky even! And so it may be for many Londoners, but Pocket is trying hard to make it possible for as many city makers as possible to own a home in their local area.

We are very proud to introduce Thomas Golden. You may have already spotted him in the Metro this morning, his is one of the buyers of Pocket’s compact homes in Oak Grove NW2.

Pocket gets moving in Lambeth

On track to deliver 127 new Pocket homes in Lambeth in 2016

 

It’s all happening in Lambeth! Having just started building our latest development Mountearl Gardens SW16 in Streatham, Pocket has this corner of London on the brain. One of the boroughs where city makers most want to buy their first home is Lambeth, and what’s not to like?! Lambeth stretches all the way from the River Thames (overlooking Westminster) through multicultural Brixton, down to leafy Streatham.  There’s something for everyone, and we are underway with Pocket schemes dotted from the top of the borough to the bottom, between them delivering 127 affordable Pocket homes, most of them one bedroom.

 

Construction at Wynne Road SW9 is well underway, and having started last week on-site at Mountearl Gardens SW16 we are really excited about the innovative modular construction methods we’re using, working with Donban Contracting UK,  to reduce construction times and improve economies of scale – getting these homes delivered sooner.  Sail Street and Juxon Street are due to start construction January 2016, using this same innovative approach.  Here’s a round-up of all our upcoming Lambeth schemes:
