L&Q has launched Brook Houses, the final phase of 4 bedroom Shared Ownership houses at Stadium Place, the site of the historic Walthamstow dog stadium. The contemporary homes offer families a chance to own a piece of London history, with properties set behind the former stadium’s iconic Grade II listed wall of neon lights.
Last year, the culmination of a painstaking restoration project saw the building’s art-deco facade lit for the first time since its closure eight years ago. Local craftsmen used over 350 pieces of glass to complete the project, working alongside Historic England and architects HTA Design to help L&Q deliver a faithful renovation of the original lights, which were installed in 1951 in time to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II a year later. Since opening in the 50s, the stadium has played a part in decades of contemporary British culture and history*.
Cathy Lloyd, Sales and Marketing Director for L&Q, comments; “Following the success of previous phases, we are pleased to offer new 4 bedroom homes in this now thriving community at Stadium Place. Brook Houses are ideal for families, offering generous living areas and large gardens to provide much-needed space for both young growing families and parents with teenagers. There is also a huge range of local facilities for parents and children, with 4 primary and 3 secondary schools nearby, and proposed on-site facilities including a pre-school nursery, cafe, newsagent, and play areas.”
Inside, the Shared Ownership houses offer a high level of specification. Properties are fitted with contemporary gloss kitchens and a wide range of fully integrated Zanussi appliances. Stylish ceramic bathrooms offer pristine Roca sanitaryware, while hallways and living spaces have laminate oak effect flooring and bedrooms are carpeted, with fitted sliding mirrored wardrobe in the master bedroom. Outside, each house has a front garden and private rear garden.
Well-connected Walthamstow is ideally placed for commuters; Walthamstow Central is on the Victoria Line and only a 15 minute trip to Central London** – or for those looking to explore the fashionable East End, Overground services to Hackney take just 9 minutes***. The area is also well-serviced by local buses.
Walthamstow is renowned for its vibrant local scene – the market alone dates from 1855 and is the longest outdoor street market in Europe, spanning roughly a kilometre of Walthamstow High Street. Lining the nearby roads are hundreds of popular independent shops, cafes, and restaurants, while the area’s creative vibe is also evident in the prolific art galleries, independent bakeries, vintage shops, organic food stores, and even a neon gallery and café.
Prices for a 25% share of 4 bedroom homes start from £143,750 share.
