Few remain at Wandsworth development’s final phase

The Schoolyard

L&Q, one of London’s leading property developers, has announced the final phase at the nearly completed Wandsworth development, The Schoolyard. Launched in this summer, Francis House comprises 29 one, two and three bedroom apartments starting from £475,000.

Unlike other developments in the Wandsworth area, homes at The Schoolyard are ready to buy now. The Schoolyard development provides over 100 homes and has sold at an impressive rate since its launch in late 2013. Offering living spaces of up to 1061 sq.ft. each home at the final phase, Francis House, is generously sized and includes custom built contemporary kitchens with integrated Zanussi and Electrolux appliances.

Extra notable features include video door entry, underfloor heating and built-in wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors. Landscaped communal gardens reinforce the development’s strong sense of community and provide additional outdoor space for residents, in addition to each apartment’s outside living spaces.

Working at the Imperial College in Kensington, 39 year-old Mark Reid was attracted to the development prime location and quality design: “I was really pleased with the attention to detail and the finish. I love the kitchen and bathroom; they’ve been done to a luxury standard. I didn’t think I could afford to be in London, so it’s great that I’ve been able to stay, right here, right by the river. I’m very pleased.”

Purchasing a two bedroom apartment in early 2015, Mark now enjoys his new commute, a 20 minute cycle along the river. “I love being close to the river. And all my friends are around Putney and Wandsworth so it’s a great place to be. The pubs and bars around here are good. Lots of people go running and there are great sports facilities in the existing parks. It’s a very outdoorsy type of environment which is quite ‘me’.”

Cathy Lloyd, Sales Director at L&Q, said: “We’re immensely proud of The Schoolyard development in Wandsworth and look forward to welcoming buyers to the final phase.
