Often, moving to London can mean having to compromise on your living standards. Eye-watering deposits, pitiable square footage and flats that look nothing like the pictures — all too familiar woes for those who have navigated the capital's rental market. But it doesn't have to be this way. Feast your eyes on The Forge...
High spec appliances? Check. A landscaped roof terrace? Check. Achingly cool interior design? Check. Pet-friendly? Check. The Forge, a collection of 125 new homes in east London, has it all.
The Upton Park location is great for commuters, with Canary Wharf just a 15 minute tube ride away, and London Bridge reachable in 20 minutes. Oh, and did we mention that you can go deposit-free? That gives you quite a few more pennies to splurge at the shopping mecca that is Westfield Stratford, located just ten minutes away on the tube.
But there's way more to the development than pretty, niftily-located, and surprisingly affordable flats: The Forge is forging an exciting urban community. That includes a residents' lounge, an onsite gym, and an exclusive rooftop terrace — all included in your rent. And, if you fancy getting to know your neighbours better, The Forge puts on special events just for residents.
On top of all that, there's a concierge service for peace of mind, dedicated bike storage and — in what will undoubtedly be music to ears of all London motorists — onsite parking.
The Forge has a selection of one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and duplexes available to rent, making it a brilliant option for single professionals, sharers, and families alike. All boast floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies and contemporary fittings.
Prices start at £1325pcm for a one-bedroom flat. For more info, or to arrange a viewing of The Forge, click here.
