● Newman Apartments are the latest phase at Barratt London’s Eastman Village in Harrow
● Emerson Apartments provides a new SMRT concept; 37 sq m one-bedroom apartment, with prices starting from £312,000; £30,000-£40,000 lower than the standard Barratt London home
Hong Kong investors have the opportunity to snap up a property in one of West London’s prime regeneration hotspots – Harrow. As Rightmove revealed the average London house price has exceeded £650,000, buyers have the opportunity to purchase at Barratt London’s Eastman Village development from £312,000 (HK$2,889,316).
The Emerson Apartments is an innovative SMRT concept, specially created to help ease the squeeze on London’s property market. The one and two-bedroom apartments come with double sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, an open plan kitchen/dining area, a utility cupboard to conceal the white goods, a private balcony or terrace, and a beautiful outlook over the three-acre green link and central landscaped plaza.
As one of the tallest buildings on the development and due to complete in summer 2023, the Newman Apartments comprises 27 one, two and three-bedroom apartments offering a more traditional layout, overlooking the communal courtyard gardens with views across the capital’s skyline.
These new homes provide an opportunity for buyers to purchase an impressive property at a historical site situated right at the heart of a top regeneration area - benefitting not only from real affordability, but impressive growth potential.
“The homes we are creating at Eastman Village are light and spacious, surrounded by green space and located close to a wealth of community facilities and excellent public transport links including cycleways and footpaths” says Joseph Au, Senior Sales Manager, Barratt Homes.
"People buying from Hong Kong are generally purchasing to secure a future home in the UK and especially the Capital. Properties in London’s outer zones four and five offer exceptional value for money and an excellent investment opportunity. They are affordable in comparison with central London and are predicted to see improvement in both capital value and rental values in the long term.” He continues.
Eastman Village, a striking new development on the 55-acre site of the former Kodak film factory, is part of a larger £1.75bn improvement scheme in Harrow. As a top London investment area close to the prestigious Harrow School, it offers the prospect of solid returns for buy-to-let investors, with an anticipated yield of 4.5%, as well as the potential for strong capital growth.
The development is served by a wealth of community facilities including commercial space and leisure centres. Residents can enjoy easy access to open spaces such as local Headstone Manor Museum with its surrounding gardens, via a green link comprising three acres of communal landscaped gardens. Also nearby is the Pear Wood nature reserve, perfect for open-air activities as well as a quick dip in the Ruislip Lido.
Excellent transport links make it a popular location for both first time buyers and young professionals, providing stylish urban living with strong connections to the capital. A new network of foot and cycle paths leading to Harrow & Wealdstone station, a 15 minute-walk away, offers Bakerloo Line Underground services to London Paddington in under half an hour, London Overground services, and direct trains to Euston in less than 20 minutes. London’s airports are also under an hour’s drive away for any international travellers, with Harrow-on-the-Hill a short bus ride away providing links to the Metropolitan Line and national rail services.
Emerson Apartments are priced from £312,000 (HK$2,889,316)
Newman Apartments are prices from £359,000 (HK$3,324,567)
