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:

Furnishing your new Pocket home

How to make your Pocket flat a home

Furnishing a new home is possibly the most exciting part of the homebuying process… Which sofa?  What bed?  Colour scheme?  Accessories?  For first time buyers, while it may be exciting, it can also be a bit daunting.  And when you’ve only got limited space, it’s even more important to get it right.

A Pocket home is our customer’s castle, and before you even move in it has the makings of a home.  We’re really proud of Pocket’s carefully planned interior layouts, which maximise the space and flexibility residents have for their furniture.  We use neutral colour schemes so you can add furnishings in the hues you choose.  And we have built-in wall lighting to give you a great ambience.  Finally, we provide plenty of storage so you can tidy away the clutter.

Western Road UB2 show home now open

Take a peek at our latest show home in Western Road UB2, which has just been designed by our friend Kelly at Birdy Design, using a mixture of owned, found and bought pieces.  Just like our first time buyers, at Pocket we like to keep our costs low and make the most of anything that we already have, so Kelly had a pretty tricky task as we asked her to re-use quite a few items of furniture that we already had in storage.

Home sweet Pumpkin – fully booked for 1st phase viewings at Western Road UB2  

1st phase viewings at Western Road UB2 fully booked

Becoming a homeowner means all sorts of things – one of which is having your very own front door to showcase your pumpkin-carving skills.  It so happens that tomorrow, Saturday 31st October 2015, is Halloween, and we have invited nearly 30 potential buyers for our latest development in Western Road UB2, Southall, to visit our Camden show flat.  We have back-to-back appointments, and while the launch has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween (although we may have some spooky sweets to keep our sales team and their visitors going through the busy day), it could mean that the 1st phase of Western Road UB2, sells out before the trick or treating starts!
