Cricklewood is being transformed into a new super-suburb, with a £4.5billion regeneration scheme bringing three new schools, four parks and a new Thameslink station to the area, making it an altogether appealing place to live¹. For house hunters looking to benefit from this transformation, a new collection of family homes and one and two bedroom apartments recently launched at Gladstone Village by Octavia Living, offer the very best of modern living, and are perfectly placed to enjoy this exciting new area
The regeneration scheme will also create 27,000 new jobs in the area, acting as a catalyst for future economic growth. Meanwhile, more than £400m will be invested in transport infrastructure, offering an even faster transport service into and around the capital. Eight of the new apartments at Gladstone Village are also available through shared ownership, giving buyers a helping hand on to the property ladder.
Sue Dance, Head of Sales and Marketing at Octavia Living, said, “Cricklewood is set to become a thriving suburb with new facilities, jobs and transport connections, all of which will undoubtedly attract potential purchasers. Gladstone Village is ideal for young professionals and growing families who want to enjoy city life and have somewhere to escape to. The development enjoyed a successful launch, and we’d encourage house hunters to visit Gladstone Village for themselves, particularly those interested in taking advantage of our shared ownership scheme on the two bedroom apartments.”
The two bed apartments currently available at Gladstone Village offer a high specification. The kitchen includes Manhattan units and fully integrated appliances including an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
Each apartment also benefits from a balcony and a parking space.
