The Tower unveiled at New Hendon Village
Genesis has announced the launch of The Tower at New Hendon Village in Colindale, the latest collection of brand new apartments at the popular parkland development.
Providing a total of 39 one and two bedroom apartments, The Tower offers the ideal home for London commuters, investors and young couples. Prices start from £195,000 for a one bedroom apartment and there is extra help for first-time buyers with the Government backed FirstBuy initiative.
The Tower is a handsome seven-storey building standing proudly at the head of Heybourne Park, a great sweep of wonderfully restored parkland complete with tree-lined avenues, ornamental lakes and a wildlife pond that provides a setting unrivalled in this part of London. All of its apartments have at least one large balcony or terrace, many looking out onto the parkland. And interiors make the most of the views too, with full-height glazing in the living areas.
New Hendon Village provides all you need for a gracious yet convenient lifestyle. Space is the keyword for the apartments. The two-bedroom apartments have an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, and all properties include generous built-in storage.
Most have well proportioned open-plan kitchen/living rooms; in others the kitchen is thoughtfully separated from the living space, providing a great choice of practical layouts.
The same high-spec finish and thoughtful design is evident throughout, with the floor-to-ceiling windows creating bright and elegant interiors. Sleek and modern kitchens feature solid granite worktops with ‘Roman cherry’ units, contrasting white walls, and come complete with a stainless steel oven and hob and an integrated extractor fan. Bathrooms have steel baths and sleek chrome fittings.
Open space is the major feature outside. In addition to New Hendon Village’s own parkland, the 250 acres of Fryent Country Park, a rural paradise of conserved meadows, woodland and ponds, are nearby, while the 790-acre Hampstead Heath, is just 12 minutes away from nearby Colindale Underground Station. For travel by car, the M1 is nearby for access to Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Sheffield and Leeds, while Heathrow and Luton airports are just 37 minutes away.
New Hendon Village is part of Barnet’s ongoing regeneration, with excellent retail, social and transport facilities helping to make this part of north London the place to live in the capital. New cafes, restaurants and bars are creating a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
To qualify for FirstBuy the applicant’s household must earn less than £60,000 a year and be unable to finance a property in the area where they currently live or work. An equity loan of up to 20% of the property price will be provided meaning the purchaser only needs to arrange finance for the remaining 80%, which can be done by arranging a market rate mortgage in addition to the 5% deposit. The buyer can then purchase up to 100% equity in the property in instalments after they have moved in, or proportionally share the remaining equity of the house when it is sold at the current market rate.
