Your Guide To Riverside Living At The Royal Docks

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Notting Hill Genesis.

Picture the scene: it's Sunday morning and you've just taken your morning coffee on your own private balcony. You get dressed, head out the door, and within just a few steps you're gazing across the River Thames.

Tear yourself away from that beautiful view, and you've got a wealth of lush green spaces to explore, an onsite restaurant and a cafe where you can refuel, and even your very own creative hub in the form of Bow Arts' RAW Labs, which hosts weekly art and yoga classes as well as an array of inspiring workshops.

Welcome to Royal Albert Wharf, a growing east London neighbourhood and the perfect place to put down roots in the capital.

Located where the River Thames meets the Royal Docks, Royal Albert Wharf gives Londoners the best of both worlds. With Gallions Reach DLR station close by, you're just 20 minutes away from Canary Wharf, and less than half an hour from the City — making it ideal for commuters. Music lover? The O2 is also within easy reach via DLR or cable car, as is leading events hub ExCel London.

Excellent transport links aside, you've also got tons of great stuff on your doorstep, including excellent cycle routes, a major retail park, and a unique floating bar and restaurant aboard the locally-docked Sunborn Yacht. On top of existing amenities like shops, eateries, and the RAW Labs arts hub, the development itself could soon be home to a nursery and a gym, subject to lease agreements.

Right now, leading London housing association Notting Hill Genesis is offering a stunning range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments at Royal Albert Wharf, available through both Shared Ownership and private sale — with Help to Buy available for first-time buyers.

The interiors here are seriously impressive — think light-flooded rooms, brand new integrated appliances, and contemporary LED lighting. What's more, each apartment comes with its own private outdoor space.

If you're quick about it, you could even nab a balcony with a waterfront view (just a handful of apartments on Riverside part of the development remain). Alternatively, Parkside has plenty of its own charms, with apartments that overlook Northern Square Park — the largest green space at Royal Albert Wharf, complete with picnic benches and a children's play area.

With Shared Ownership,  one-bedroom apartments at Royal Albert Wharf start from as little as £78,750 for a 25% share, and a deposit from as little £7,875 — significantly cheaper than if you were to take the traditional route to homeownership. What's more, you can 'staircase' your way up to full ownership as your finances improve.

Another option for first-time buyers available at Royal Albert Wharf is Help to Buy. The scheme is available on one to three-bedroom apartments — some of which have onsite parking — making it an especially attractive proposition for families looking to get on the property ladder.

Apartments at Royal Albert Wharf start from £362,500 for a one-bedroom apartment, with London Help to Buy: Equity Loan available on selected homes.
