NU living’s new shared ownership development, Cordage Works, launches in regeneration hotspot, Walthamstow

NU living, the innovative in-house developer for Swan Housing Association, has just launched Cordage Works, its exciting boutique development in the bustling East London regeneration hotspot of Walthamstow. The homes have launched off-plan and all are available with Shared Ownership; this collection of just 28 apartments offers hopeful homebuyers the opportunity to step onto the ladder in a vibrant cultural area which is undergoing an impressive £200m investment. What’s more, buyers can secure a one-bedroom apartment at the scheme with just a five per cent deposit of £6,650 [prices start from just £133,000 for a 35 per cent share].

Linda Faucher, Sales & Marketing Director at NU living comments: “Our Cordage Works development has a lot to offer - with shared ownership available, this East London hotspot is made accessible to first-time buyers, young professionals and families, who may be priced out of the open London market. Plus, buying early off-plan allows people to get onto the ladder in an already-buzzing area which is set for so much growth. For so many buyers location is high, if not first, on the priority list, and buyers at Cordage Works certainly won’t have to compromise on that.

“With more and more people returning to the city for part or all of the week following the lifting of Plan B restrictions, there will certainly be a demand for these homes – they are perfect for those with hybrid working lifestyles, from the design of the homes to the connectivity across London. From Blackhorse Road station, King’s Cross can be reached in just 13 minutes and the West End is under 20 minutes away via the Victoria line.

Cordage Works comprises a collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all of which feature a contemporary internal specification, open-plan layouts with dedicated working areas – ideal for those working all or part of the week from home – and a sought-after south-facing balcony or terrace providing valuable outdoor space. Residents will also benefit from a private communal garden, complete with a play area.

Cordage Works is ideally positioned between Stratford and the calm and tranquillity of Epping Forest. Known for its vibrant atmosphere, with Waltham Forest being the first to be named the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture in 2019, this hub of East London is fast becoming an emerging destination for arts and small independent businesses, a compelling draw for buyers looking to step onto the ladder in a budding London location. Walthamstow town centre, which is just a two minute train ride away from Blackhorse Road station, is home to a popular Farmer’s Market each Sunday and an array of shops and eateries like the renowned God’s Own Junkyard and the Wildcard Brewery. While acknowledging its rich industrial heritage, the area is now set for its new chapter, with a £200 million investment in the town centre, but will in time play host to even more new brands, shops and places to work.

Despite the hustle and bustle of Walthamstow’s town centre, green space is never too far away; Walthamstow Wetlands, London’s largest nature reserve which has ten reservoirs, pathways and trails, and is receiving a £10m investment is a short walk away. Epping Forest is also nearby with its array of pretty, leafy walkways and paths, perfect for an evening or weekend stroll.

When it comes to connectivity, Cordage Works is perfectly placed. The homes are located just a 10 minute walk from Blackhorse Road Overground and Underground station for the Victoria Line, offering excellent transport links across London, which is ideal for those wanting to buy within close proximity of the city for a better flexible work life. From Blackhorse Road station, Oxford Circus can be reached in 18 minutes, Victoria in 21 minutes and Bank in 29 minutes.
