Are you looking to get a foot on the property ladder but are not sure if you have the finances? Then help is at hand as Southern Home Ownership present Bow River Village, an award-winning development, comprising a selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments available for sale on a shared ownership basis

Shared ownership
How shared ownership works is quite straightforward – you buy as much of the property as you can afford, usually at least 25% up to a maximum of 75%, and you pay a subsidised rent on the rest.

Shared ownership is the affordable home ownership option. It can also be cheaper than renting privately. The mortgage cost and reduced rent usually add up to less than the equivalent rental payments to a landlord. For more information on shared ownership visit

Bow River Village

Bow River Village sits in a perfect spot next to the quiet River Lee. The River Lee is London’s second waterway, made famous by the 2012 games, a short distance upriver. The whole of the Lee Valley is filled with open spaces and sports facilities for you to explore.

There are river walks and shared spaces beside the water to give all residents the chance to enjoy this unique location to the full. It is the perfect place to enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon, or watch the sun go down after a hard day at work.

Bow brings together all that’s exciting and vibrant about modern urban living. From the Columbia Road flower market to the restaurants of Brick Lane, it draws you in with its buzz.

Roman Road market is the oldest in the country and Victoria Park is one of the finest in London, complete with wide-open spaces, ponds and wildlife. You’ll find pop up bars, restaurants and galleries, cinemas, theatres and performance venues sitting alongside traditional pubs and fish and chip shops.

Bow is a great place for jobs too. There’s a real push to turn the area into one of London’s creative hubs, with new businesses and opportunities. The whole area is set to be transformed into a connected valley with a mix of dynamic parkland and workspaces.

Bow River Village is the perfect base for enjoying everything that London has to offer. Buses stop nearby, Bromley-by-Bow Underground station (Hammersmith & City and District Lines) is only a five-minute walk and Bow Road DLR less than 10. From local stations, it’s an easy 15-minute commute to Canary Wharf or the City.

Nearby you’ll find:
The shopping at Stratford
(including Westfield Stratford City)
The sports facilities of Hackney Marshes and the Lee Valley
The great nightlife of Shoreditch
