London Renters! Check Out These Unique Homes With Premium-Grade Perks

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Get Living.

In the market for a home with a bit of oomph? If you're a renter, then Portlands Place needs to be on your radar.

This brand new collection of apartments by award-winning rental operator Get Living — part of the East Village development in Stratford — is eye-catching in all the right ways.

It's set across two striking towers designed by renowned architecture firm Hawkins/Brown (fun fact: these folks were also behind the huge Elizabeth line upgrade at Tottenham Court Road). But the real piece-de-resistance has got to be Portlands Place's tenth floor Skybridge: a suspended, foliage-strewn glass oasis which gives each and every resident access to an incredible range of amenities...

Get active and find your zen

Health and wellbeing is at the heart of Portlands Place, which is pretty fitting, considering its proximity to the former Olympic Park. The development boasts a yoga studio, a Technogym-equipped fitness suite and a spin studio — all programmed by luxury wellness platform, Antidote.

These are free-to-use at any time and residents are also entitled to six complimentary trainer-led classes per week, plus an introductory personal training session. How's that for motivation, eh?

Eat, drink and be merry!

Fancy yourself as a bit of a foodie? Up your dinner party game by booking the Come Dine With Us open plan kitchen and dining room. It's got all the equipment and space you need to whip up a feast for up to 20 people, and comes with panoramic views of the city.

Other perks at Portlands Place to help you socialise in style include a screening room and lounge, 10,473 sq ft of outdoor roof terraces, and built-in wine dispenser, with vino curated by E20's Darkhouse restaurant.

Rise and grind

Portlands Place is a dream for commuters, located within walking distance of Stratford station (Zone 2/3), which is served by the Jubilee line, the Central line, the DLR and Overground.

But it's also great for hybrid and remote workers, with communal facilities for collaborative and quiet working (think lounge pockets, high tables, phone booths). Prefer to work in privacy? Each apartment is designed to support that, too. Speaking of which...

... So how about those homes, then?

Portlands Place offers an incredible range of studios and 1-4 bedroom apartments, all of which come fully furnished (including a desk for you WFHers!) with three interior styles to choose from. Each one is open plan, with tons of natural light and private outdoor space in the form of an enclosed or Juliet balcony.

Other highlights feature high spec Grundig kitchen appliances and advanced sustainable technology, including a master light switch to help you cut down on energy waste.

Plus, plenty to do on your doorstep!

While the apartments are certainly lovely enough to transform social butterflies into homebodies, your new neighbourhood has a heck of a lot going for it, too. East Village is home to a cracking cluster of restaurants, cafes, and retail spaces, plus it's got an array of community events lined up for summer — from footie matches, to summer fetes, to LGBTQ+ meetups.

You're also super close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where new cultural quarter East Bank will launch in 2024, bringing together a new Sadler's Wells theatre, BBC Music Studios, and V&A East.

What's more, when you fancy venturing much further afield, Stratford International is but a short walk away, offering high speed services to Kent and St Pancras International. Weekend trip to Paris, anyone?
