This Is Why London Renters Are Snapping Up Flats At Porter's Edge

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Folio London.

If the thought of living in a waterside property mere minutes' away from the Jubilee Line feels more like a pipe dream than a reality, think again.

Porter's Edge, located right next to Canada Water underground station and on the edge of a freshwater lake (in Zone 2!), isn't just about the knockout location. This brand spanking new rental development also comes chocka full of great perks for house-hunting Londoners.

But before we get into the many heck yeahs — including on-site gym and rooftop garden — let us be realistic: rental properties like this don't come around too often. That's why most of the units at Porter's Edge have already been snapped up. But, those looking to share their snazzy new abode with a friend are in luck — a handful of two bedroom properties are still available.

So what will you and your roomie get when you sign that dotted line? Firstly, space, and lots of it (by London standards anyway). Two double bedrooms, generous open plan living areas and a kitchen totally kitted out with high-spec appliances. Plus, a real London luxury, outdoor space in the form of your very own balcony or terrace. It's even pet friendly, so Fido needn't miss out on sunbathing either.

And that's not all. Tenants can further stretch their legs in the luxurious private residents' lounge (hello, free WiFi and football table), rest their legs in the on-site Mousetail café, or work their legs in the gym. Membership is free for residents.

Up on the top floor, the communal rooftop garden also comes with its own tennis court, ideal for soaking in killer views across the London skyline while serving up a sweat. Or simply rustle up a G&T and kick back on the rooftop garden's seating area instead. It's your home, after all.

We know we mentioned it early, but location is of the utmost importance for the commuting Londoner. Porter's Edge is a stone's throw from Canada Water station, connecting you to the Jubilee and Overground Lines in a matter of minutes. One stop east and you're in Canary Wharf. Two stops west and you're in London Bridge. Five stops north and you're in the heart of Shoreditch. The city is your oyster.

Prefer to drive? Your tenancy comes with complimentary car club membership, so you can whizz off at the drop of a hat. Or stay close to home and sample the best that Canada Water itself has to offer, from arts venues to shopping centres, waterfront walks to amazing eateries. Street Feast's Hawker House food market is just over the road, making Friday night dinner options significantly more tantalising.

The cherry on top? You can wave goodbye and good riddance to admin fees. Yep, Porter's Edge is keeping things simple with flexible tenancies and, blissfully, no extra fees. All homes even come with furniture packages at no extra cost to you. It really is that easy. Save the pennies you'd have spent at IKEA and treat yourself to some tennis lessons instead. They may just come in handy.
