Tanya (44) and Brad (41) Revell moved to the UK three and a half years ago, after spending most of their lives in the United States. The couple have purchased their perfect home, a three-bedroom apartment at Crest Nicholson’s The Essex Brewery, Walthamstow, using the London Help to Buy scheme.
Having previously rented in Balham, the couple were keen to make their first step onto the property ladder. Tanya explains: ‘With high rental costs in London we were ready to purchase a home and put our money towards paying a mortgage. Our experience with the London Help to Buy scheme was excellent, the process was simple, and with the five percent deposit, it enabled us to buy in the capital.”
Tanya continues, ‘The Essex Brewery ticked all of the boxes for us. We were very impressed by the vibrant, up and coming neighbourhood, and the new build home was perfect as the quality was excellent. We were blown away by the apartment as it had all the modern conveniences that we were looking for. Having enough space to work from home was crucial for Brad, and he has been able to turn one of the spare bedrooms into a home office.’ As a technology consultant, Brad’s home office was further enhanced with progressive new build benefits such as superfast broadband from move in day, thanks to a partnership with Hyperoptic, with whom Crest Nicholson is offering three months free service.
Conveniently located within Zone 3, The Essex Brewery offers easy access to both Walthamstow underground station and St James Street station, making it ideal for Tanya who commutes to work in Camden Town. The area is served by an excellent bus network, providing further routes to a range of locations across London. For those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of London life, residents will also be able to enjoy an abundance of open space at the nearby Hackney Marshes and Walthamstow Wetlands.
Two-bedroom apartments at The Essex Brewery are available from £532,000, while prices for three-bedroom apartments begin at £685,000.
