A home that's completely yours, in a lovely leafy neighbourhood, located in one of the greatest capital cities on earth — it's the dream, right? Albeit one that seems totally out of reach for most first-time buyers (as anyone who's whiled away many a lockdown day scrolling forlornly through London property listings will tell you).
Luckily, snapping up your own little slice of the city is easier than you might think. Enter Beaufort Park: a lifestyle-led new development in Colindale, North West London that boasts a cracking range of apartments, many of which are available with Help to Buy.
Help to Buy is a government scheme that allows first-time buyers to pay a deposit as low as 5%. Basically, if you want to become a London homeowner and don't happen to be sitting on a gigantic nest egg, you need to know about it.
Like all Help to Buy homes, Beaufort Park's collection of apartments are brand new. As well as contemporary, light-filled interiors and stylish integrated appliances, you get your own private balcony or terrace — and beyond that, there are 25 acres of freshly-landscaped parkland and gardens to explore.
Beaufort Park is more than just an incredibly chic place to hang your hat, though. The development is also home to a fantastic range of amenities, including shops, restaurants, bars and even a spa — the perfect place to decompress after a visit to the onsite gym or pool.
Pivoted to home-working? For an additional cost, residents can also enjoy access to Areaworks, a flexible working space with private offices and breakout rooms as well as free wifi, printing and refreshments.
Beyond the development, you've got plenty of North London gems to discover. For starters, the Royal Airforce Museum is pretty much on your doorstep, as is London's largest Asian food hall — and you're not far from one of London's greatest architectural marvels, the awe-inspiring Neasden temple, BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.
Hampstead, with its ancient heath and quaint village atmosphere, is just a short tube ride from Colindale station, as are the bright lights and cultural delights — including the Roundhouse and the Jazz Cafe — of Camden Town. Colindale also benefits from direct connections to the West End, King's Cross and the City in 25 minutes.
The apartments at Beaufort Park range from studios to three-bedroom penthouses, with Help to Buy available on a range of one and two-bedroom properties. Prices start at £294,950, subject to availability. Click here to register your interest and arrange a virtual or in-person tour today.
