Barratt London is launching Shackleton House on 5 August 2017, at the company’s historic Enderby Wharf development - and the last opportunity to buy a river-fronting apartment here. The launch of Shackleton follows the successful recent sale of homes in Cook House.

Named after Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton (1874-1922), the polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, Shackleton House commemorates the intrepid explorer’s bravery and leadership, ensuring the rescue of his crew under extreme circumstances.

One of eight new buildings within the Enderby Wharf development, Shackleton House is a collection of 118 studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, each with floor-to-ceiling windows and private outdoor space providing views across the Thames and a panorama which includes some of London’s most famous landmarks.

Each apartment has a stylish, contemporary design, with an exceptional specification, including kitchens with Silestone worktops and AEG appliances, underfloor heating, wine cooler, video entry system, induction hobs, and bathrooms with wet rooms, an effortless showering environment. The apartments are finished throughout with Amtico flooring. Parking is available on selected apartments.

This phase highlights the growing community in the area, with a residents’ gymnasium recently opened, a 24-hour concierge service and landscaped gardens for outside enjoyment. Access is also available to a resident’s car club and bicycle storage facility. Underground parking for one vehicle is included with the purchase of a three-bedroom apartment.

Barratt London’s on-site property management company, BRAM, provides peace of mind for all of those living at the development. BRAM will look after the home long after the customer has moved in. BRAM are committed to ensuring the communal areas are taken care of, keeping areas clean and tidy. BRAM also help with daily aspects and are always on hand to help, from collecting and storing packages when residents are out for the day, to holding keys should residents require this service.

Upon completion, buyers will receive £1,000 worth of Evans bicycle vouchers per household to help residents travel to Underground stations into the City. Other incentives available include Stamp Duty contributions, a two year paid travel card for Zones 1-3, two years paid service charge, and New ID furniture packs.

Residents have excellent connections to all parts of London and beyond via the Jubilee Line from the North Greenwich Underground station (Zones 2 and 3), a short bus ride away. Waterloo can be reached in 11 minutes, Green Park in 15 minutes or Stratford in 10 minutes. The Thames Clipper River Bus Express Service runs direct to London Bridge in 35 minutes and travellers can enjoy a snack as well as a glass of champagne. The Thames Clipper Service is planning to create a further 11 stops, including one directly at Enderby Wharf. The Cutty Sark DLR provides Overground links to London City Airport in 18-minutes for international travel.

Another option is the Emirates Air Line, which transfers passengers to Royal Victoria Docks, via a spectacular cable car ride, in just a few moments.

Completion of the new Crossrail service in 2018 will also allow residents to reach Liverpool Street station in eight minutes and Heathrow Airport in 39 minutes.

Pam Reardon, sales director at Barratt London, comments: “Greenwich, one of the largest and most exciting regeneration projects in Europe, is attracting insightful buyers who can see that this ambitious redevelopment is creating one of London’s most appealing destinations, which takes full advantage of the river front location and its proximity to historic Greenwich town centre, the universities, museums and other cultural institutions.”

“The opening of new art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and parks, as well as a golf driving range and a film studio, has generated immense interest from both homebuyers and investors.”

Prices at Shackleton House start from £432,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.
