First time buyers are motioning their way to Waltham Forest

Peabody’s Motion development

Peabody’s Motion development – Still reaping the rewards that the Olympic 2012 legacy left behind, the north-east London borough of Waltham Forest has become a jewel in the capital’s crown. Thanks to an impressive regeneration program aiming to deliver more than 4,000 new homes, 1,000 new jobs and employing significant investment into the local transport infrastructure, Waltham Forest is one of London’s fastest growing boroughs, and one that is attracting London’s homebuyers. Those on the hunt for an opportunity to make this up-and-coming neighbourhood their home, Peabody’s award-winning development, Motion is not to be missed. Forming an integral part of the Lea Bridge and Leyton regeneration program, Motion offers a stylish collection of Shared Ownership homes where buyers can experience for themselves exactly what makes this area so great. Furthermore, those who pay a visit to Peabody’s Open Day event on Saturday 11th December and reserve one of the two or three-bedroom apartments at Motion will receive up to £6,000 cash back.*

Recently announced as Apartment Development of the Year at the British Home Awards, Peabody’s Motion development enjoys a superb location with easy access to the rest of the capital. Residents are provided with enviable cityscape views across Lea Valley and proudly occupies an outstanding setting within one of London’s greenest boroughs. Perfect for Londoners seeking a slightly slower pace of life, this culturally diverse borough provides buyers with a relaxing lifestyle peppered with the vibrant influences from neighbouring hubs like Walthamstow, Dalston and Hackney. Also, part of TFL’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme, the local area that surrounds Motion is being transformed to encourage greener modes of transport and actively supports residents to opt to walk, cycle and use public transport. A ‘Mini Holland Network’ which connects to the rest of east London runs outside the development on Lea Bridge Road, and provides the perfect environment for keen cyclists and those who prefer to get around town under their own steam.

Andrew Peglau, Assistant Director of Marketing at Peabody comments: “Waltham Forest is certainly making it’s mark as one of London’s most promising boroughs for homebuyers. It is now a thriving melting pot of cultures and communities and our Shared Ownership homes are perfectly placed for those wanting to get on the ladder and be able to take full advantage of this up-and-coming corner of north-east London. Over the past ten years, property values in Waltham Forest have increased by more than 75% – more than any other London borough, and demand is showing no signs of slowing down. By offering Shared Ownership at Motion, first time buyers will have the opportunity to buy a home with a lower-level deposit yet still reap the rewards of living a very enviable London lifestyle.”
