The average price for a property sold in Elephant and Castle has increased by 5% over the past five years according to London estate agents, Foxtons – proving just how popular this eclectic London district is. Characterised by its urban aesthetic, cosmopolitan charm, and abundant day and night-time haunts, Elephant and Castle is fast becoming recognised as more than just a location, but a destination. For buyers in search of a home that gives them an innate sense of excitement, Notting Hill Genesis is proud to present its award-winning apartments at Manor Place Depot, where residents will benefit from all manner of entertainment, travel connections, and green space, just moments from home.
Built on the former site of The Manor Place public baths, and later, a well-known boxing venue, the distinctly unique collection of buildings that make up Manor Place Depot comprises a stylish selection of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Residents here will benefit from a private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace; as well as access to a beautifully landscaped communal garden.
James Munson, Head of Marketing for Notting Hill Genesis, comments: “Elephant and Castle and the surrounding area is now widely considered a sought-after location; and one that is particular popular amongst first-time buyers. Not only do local residents have access to an abundance of amenities, but the area is undergoing a remarkable transformation with a new town centre replacing the Elephant shopping centre, a new campus for the London College of Communication and much more. With just one one-bedroom private sale unit and a handful of two and three-bedroom homes remaining, we urge prospective purchasers to book a viewing as soon as possible.”
