Searching for a great rental home in London can sometimes feel like you're running a gauntlet. It's crowded and competitive, but in between dodging high fees, dubious set ups and dingy basements, there must be somewhere beautiful and simple, right? Well, yes, actually, there is.
Welcome to Traders' Quarter.
Nestled in between two DLR stations in London Docklands, Traders' Quarter is a brand new waterfront development filled with high quality, spacious one and two bedroom homes. It's light, it's bright and it has an ace up its sleeve: cracking views right up the River Thames. Seriously, the riverfront is just a couple of minutes' walk away. Betcha didn't think you could find that on London's rental market, did you?
Another perk not often seen when renting in the capital: no fees. Yes, you read that right. Folio London are a private rental brand, which means they own every home they rent at Traders' Quarter. All you have to think about is the rent and deposit — no admin fees or extra costs in sight.
What's more, these flats have never been lived in before, so you'll get first dibs on all the amazing perks that come with them. Quartz kitchen counter tops, Siemens integrated appliances, plush carpets in the bedrooms and heated towel rails in the bathrooms (hey, sometimes it's the small things) — all yours. There are even free furniture packages available, giving you the option of a fully kitted out abode at no extra cost.
Tempting as it may be to spend all your time kicking back in your new pad, Traders' Quarter gives you plenty of good reasons to explore. Even if that's just to the stunning, residents-only Clubhouse, complete with luxury swimming pool, fitness centre and a range of studio classes. Access is included in the rent. Smug or what?
Venture slightly further afield and you'll find the beautiful Thames Barrier Park right across the road. Stretch out in the seven hectares of parkland, admire the landscaped gardens or bring a sarnie from home to devour at the picnic tables. The views across the river to the Thames Barrier are pretty special.
Travelling out of the Docklands couldn't be easier either. Traders' Quarter is walking distance from both Pontoon Dock and West Silvertown DLR stations, bringing you into the heart of London in less than 20 minutes, or Canary Wharf in around 10. Although with riverside walks, restaurants, bars and cafés all on your doorstep, you may find your friends suggesting yet another night out in your neighbourhood instead.
