L&Q helps Waltham Abbey home owners plan for the future

Knights Wood

L&Q is launching the next phase of 12 two and three bedroom detached and semi-detached houses through Shared Ownership at Knights Wood, in leafy Waltham Abbey.

Christine Osborne, Sales & Customer Services Director at L&Q comments, “These new homes will provide an affordable route onto the housing ladder in an area where average house prices have risen 30% in the last three years*. Many people, however, don’t realise that this is just the first step, and there are a number of options available after purchasing, such as staircasing – which is the process of gradually buying more shares in your home. We set up our PricedIn Future campaign to offer buyers a complete guide to their options after buying an initial share. Last financial year, 381 households staircased with L&Q and 81% staircased fully to own their homes outright.”

Bringing Shared Ownership to a rural location, these new homes will offer a tranquil retreat from the capital. The development has been carefully designed to blend in with the landscape, offering a large outdoor recreational space for residents.

A highly sought-after location for families, the new homes are within walking distance of several local schools for all ages, including Upshire Primary Foundation School, Hillhouse C of E Primary School, and King Harold Business & Enterprise Academy. Additionally, Knights Wood itself will be home to an on-site nursery and pre-school facility.

Knights Wood is just an eight minute drive from the heart of historic market town, Waltham Abbey. Pedestrianised Sun Street is particularly popular with local residents, offering a plethora of restaurants, shops and 16th century pubs. The town square also hosts a twice-weekly market, with stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and veg to seasonal flowers. Offering more comprehensive shopping, Knights Wood is just a 12 minute drive from The Pavilions Shopping Centre in neighbouring Waltham Cross, home to an assortment of renowned high street brands.

For nature lovers, the new homes are just a short drive from Epping Forest. There is something for everyone hidden amongst the forest’s 2,400 hectares of magnificent woodland, including an 18-hole golf course, horse riding trails, and no less than 60 football pitches. For a mid-walk pit stop, there are also a number of tea huts and restaurants within the forest’s perimeters.

Nestled within the London commuter belt, nearby Waltham Cross railway station provides direct connections to a number of key London destinations. Commuters can reach Stratford in 22 minutes, Liverpool Street in 28 minutes, and Oxford Circus in just 30 minutes. Alternatively, the scheme offers easy road access to London, Hertfordshire and beyond via the M25 and A10.

The stylish homes at Knights Wood offer a contemporary specification throughout, with integrated appliances and quality flooring. The kitchens are also finished to a high specification. These attractive homes also include their own private garden and two allocated parking spaces.

Prices start from £125,125 for a 35% share of a two bedroom house (full market value £357,500), and from £150,500 for a 35% share of a three bedroom house (full market value £427,500). To register interest visit
