These rental apartments are getting snapped up fast!

A few months back, we alerted you to Fresh Wharf, a new development in Barking from Folio London — the not-for-profit landlord that's about putting renters' needs first.

Fast-forward a few weeks and most of the units have gone, rented by Londoners who want stylish living at an affordable price.

But it's not too late. A handful of two-bedroom apartments are still available, with pricing starting at £1,500 per month*. Don’t miss out on these beautiful apartments — book your viewing now, before they're all fully let.

Riverside living, with gym and work hub

Situated on the banks of the River Roding in east London, Fresh Wharf comes with plenty of enticing amenities, including a state-of-the-art, residents-only gym, and a stylish yet practical work-from-home hub. It's a short walk from Barking town centre, with its excellent rail connections.

Each home boasts ample living space and comes with its own private terrace, balcony, or garden — perfect for enjoying your morning coffee, or after-work cocktail.

You'll also enjoy Fresh Wharf's excellent communal facilities, like the aforementioned WFH hub. Complete with free wifi, this space is ideal for freelancers and anyone who's pivoted to remote working during the pandemic. And don't forget that exclusive on-site gym, which makes it much easier to fit workouts into your busy schedule.

Culture, connections and history

Fresh Wharf is just a 14-minute walk from Barking station — the best way to reach the development if you're travelling by rail. And there's plenty to see on that walk, from the ancient heritage of Barking Abbey, to the beautiful Boathouse Cafe on the riverside, to the bustling market in the town centre. Barking is such a rewarding place to live, with bags of culture and history.

Train journeys to and from Liverpool Street take a mere half-hour and you can reach King's Cross in just 40 minutes so, with a home at Fresh Wharf, you're never too far away from the delights of central London. What's more, with Southend Central just 40 minutes' away in the other direction, seaside escapes are a total breeze!
