Quick-off-the-mark property-hunters have rushed to snap up their pick of the plots at Chobham Manor, the first residential neighbourhood on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Taylor Wimpey and L&Q, one of London’s largest residential developers, launched the first phase of homes for private sale at Chobham Manor on Friday 30th May.
Over the first weekend, 48 open market homes were reserved by purchasers who were keen to set up home on the Park in Stratford, east London, which hosted the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The homes at Chobham Manor benefit from an incredible location, bordering Lee Valley VeloPark, the wide open spaces of the north of the Park and East Village, the former Olympic athletes’ village.
The London Legacy Development Corporation and Chobham Manor LLP, a joint venture between us and L&Q, have designed a neighbourhood suitable for a wide-range of Londoners who want to build their lives in an exciting new community, including well-designed homes for people on a range of incomes.
Seventy-five per cent of the homes will be family homes with three or more bedrooms and twenty-eight per cent will be affordable homes, the first of which will go on sale in summer 2015.
Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, says: “Chobham Manor is destined to become one of London’s most sought-after addresses and so we have not been surprised by the number of reservations we’ve taken for the open market homes over the launch weekend.
“Those who are lucky enough to make it their home will have a raft of world-class sporting facilities on their doorstep, the shops, restaurants and entertainment of Westfield Stratford City within a short walk from home, new places to work on the Park, plus a host of convenient commuter links. Chobham Manor will also benefit from a number of community facilities and a wealth of green open spaces.
“Not only does Chobham Manor enjoy an enviable location, but we also appointed a top-notch design team drawn from several of the capital’s leading architectural practices to develop a portfolio of homes that will be deserving of such a high-profile scheme.
“Whether you are hunting for your first home, upsizing, downsizing or seeking a place to share with friends or your extended family, we have the type of home to suit your lifestyle.”
Jerome Geoghegan, L&Q’s Group Director for Development and Sales, says: “The successful launch of the first homes at Chobham Manor is an exciting milestone for this landmark development. With our partners, we are creating well-designed homes for people on a range of incomes.”
Dennis Hone, Chief Executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, says: “We’re thrilled to see so much interest in the high-quality homes at Chobham Manor. A lot of hard work has gone into designing a neighbourhood that will be a symbol of the regeneration of east London and an example for future developments at the Park.”
Visitors to Chobham Manor have the opportunity to explore the two magnificent new showhomes and can view digital walkthroughs, models and floorplans of selected properties in the state-of-the-art Chobham Manor Sales and Marketing Suite.
In addition to homes, the first phase of Chobham Manor will also include retail space, play areas and communal gardens.
