Numerous studies have indicated that exposure to natural environments, such as rivers, lakes and canals can positively impact health and wellbeing among those living within urban surroundings. With demand for waterfront properties on the rise, it is little wonder so many home-hunters are willing to pay a premium for those all-important blue views. For those looking to secure a waterside property without leaving the city, Peabody and Mount Anvil’s joint venture scheme, Three Waters, offers an exciting new collection of Shared Ownership apartments that are sure to impress. Enjoying a prime position in the up-and-coming district of Poplar, on east London’s tidal estuary, Bow Creek, buyers have a unique opportunity to own a stylish home that is just minutes from the City and metres from the water.   

Set across three striking buildings that rise above the River Lea, Bow Creek and Limehouse Cut, Three Waters comprises a stylish collection of one, two and three-bedroom homes – available through Shared Ownership. Every aspect of this versatile scheme has been designed to make the most of its waterfront location – with a raised garden, stunning roof terrace, and a private balcony to every home providing far-reaching views across the water, and ensuring residents’ health and wellbeing is in check. In addition to this, residents will benefit from exceptional on-site facilities; including a 24-hour concierge service, a resident-only screening room with a social space, and secure cycle storage.

Andrew Peglau, Peabody’s Assistant Director of Marketing comments: “Waterside locations have always been considered a luxury amongst homebuyers. The recent shift in demand has been evident over the past year, where homebuyers have turned their attention to anything that will enhance their quality of life at home. With the mental health benefits of waterside living becoming increasingly important, it is little wonder so many home-buyers are on the lookout for an area that plays host to urban blue-space, such as rivers and canals. Three Waters offers precisely this, in addition to a variety of on-site amenities that are sure to draw buyers from far and wide. With the availability of Shared Ownership, this is not an opportunity home-hunters will want to miss.”


Every property at Three Waters has been designed to offer crisp, clean lines, ample living spaces, and top tier on-site amenities. Apartments have been carefully considered to bring a sense of balance and order, with a clever use of modish geometric lines typifying the statement interiors, and generously sized projected balconies maximising the water and city views. Kitchens are sleek and contemporary, and have been designed to make the most of the room and storage; complete with oak wood effect flooring, feature shelving, LED downlighting, and a selection of integrated SMEG appliances. Bathrooms provide the perfect place for a moment of calm, featuring stylish vanity units and a range of chrome fittings. Bedrooms come with built-in wardrobes and large windows that flood light into the room, and provide ample opportunity for residents to make the most of their view.

Three Waters scores highly for outdoor pursuits, shopping and leisure, and travel. The scheme is located on the boundary between Newham and Tower Hamlets, where residents will have access to more blue space than in any other London borough, including the spectacular 26-mile long Lee Valley Regional Park – ideal for keen kayakers and paddleboarders. The famed Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is just six minutes away by tube, and boasts hundreds of medal-winning moments from 2012.

For some retail therapy, Westfield is a mere 15 minutes away – offering a variety of designer brands and tantalising eateries; or, for something a little further afield, Bond Street and Covent Garden can be reached in just 21 and 23 minutes respectively.
