The scheme of 800 new homes, as well as shops and a com­mu­nity cen­tre, cov­ers an area of 31 acres, more than half of it land­scaped park­land and gar­dens. First-time buyer Fiona McDon­nell, 28, and her part­ner, Adam, above, have bought a 40 per cent share of a two-bed­room £450,000 flat.

Fiona, who works at Univer­sity Col­lege Hos­pi­tal, says: “It was just what we wanted. The com­mu­nity here is won­der­ful. Every­one gets on so well. We even started a lit­ter pick-up scheme be­tween our­selves and we are re­de­vel­op­ing the com­mu­nal gar­den. It is well lo­cated. I can get a bus to work from right out­side, and Adam can cy­cle to Far­ring­don.”
