Orchard Wharf launches a second phase
Galliard Homes’ Orchard Wharf offers a large number of homes aimed at the first-time buyer market
Asecond phase of homes has gone on sale at Galliard Homes’ Orchard Wharf development and a marketing suite has opened on-site in a bid to tempt buyers.
Located off Silvocea Way, on the banks of the River Lea, the scheme will deliver some 338 properties with 236 earmarked for private sale. Designed by BUJ Architechts, its linked buildings form a crescent when seen from above rising from 10 storeys to 19.
Of the 236 homes available, 70% were sold off-plan following the launch of Phase One in April 2017. Now the remaining 76 have come to market including 41 one-bedroom homes, which all qualify for Help To Buy. Those purchasing the cheapest under the scheme would require a mortgage of £253,000 in addition to the Government’s 40% equity loan.
The recently launched marketing suite at Orchard Wharf features the same glass and brick facade as will be used in the actual development. It is located over two floors, with a sales area with a scale model of the scheme, an exact replica of what the completed development will look like on the lower floor and dressed living, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom spaces to give buyers an idea of what to expect from the interiors should they make a purchase.
The properties feature designer fitted kitchens with silver-grey high gloss units and cabinets with frosted glass splashbacks and Smeg integrated appliances. Master bedrooms include fitted wardrobes with bespoke joinery.
Bathrooms and en-suites have large format marble-effect tiles on the floors and walls, walnut framed recesses with mirror cabinets and feature lighting. Bathroom suites feature a wall hung toilets and shower trays or steel baths as appropriate.
Finishing touches include under floor heating and chrome-plated heater towel rails.
The tower and crescent building have floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies and brick facades.
A central garden will also be created between the buildings for residents to use.
The crescent building has three rooftop landscaped gardens, available for use by residents located on the 11th, 14th and 17th floors, providing a combined total of 6,943sq ft of outside roof space.
Homeowners will also have access to a hotel-style concierge, ground floor commercial units and a residents’ lounge in the residential tower.
Galliard Homes sales director David Galman said: “The highly anticipated Phase Two launch of Orchard Wharf provides buyers with one of the largest collections of first-time buyer apartments in Docklands, available with Help to Buy.
“As part of the launch we have opened a spectacular new marketing suite where potential buyers can view a large scale model of the completed development and dressed interiors”
Orchard Wharf’s location places it within easy reach of both Canary Wharf and Royal Docks with access via East India DLR. The link also puts it within easy commuting distance of the City.
For cyclists, it is ideally placed for access to much of east London with cycle paths running to numerous locations nearby.
It’s even possible to follow the River Lea up through London and out to Hertfordshire.
Other nearby amenities include Trinity Buoy Wharf and the booming Republic office development.
