Can You Still Profit From London Property?

Can You Still Profit From London Property?
-A +A

Malaysian prospective buyers will soon be able to invest in a home at the heart of Berkeley’s sought after development Kidbrooke Village in the prestigious Royal Borough of Greenwich, one of London’s most popular South East locations.

At a time when access to green space has never been more important, Kidbrooke Village spreads over 136 acres of open spaces including a 20 hectare park, making it one of the greenest development in London and a priority for tenants and owners looking for wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

The newest launch at Kidbrooke Village is Waterlily Court, located only moments away from the brand new onsite Kidbrooke Train station, allowing residents easy connectivity into the city. London Bridge is only 16 minutes Canary Wharf in 20 minutes, Victoria in 26 minutes. The desirable and pretty Blackheath Village is a mere 3 minutes away with a host of charming shops, restaurants, Grade II listed conservatoire, entertainment and concert halls. It is also well served by local bus routes which provide quick and easy access to Greenwich, South East London and the O2.

Waterlily Court’s spacious, high-specification homes are ideally positioned between the vast parkland and The Village Centre, home to a wealth of retail and leisure facilities including supermarkets, restaurants and community spaces.  There is a range of one, two, three-bedroom apartments, and a limited number of three-bedroom townhouses, available, all of which offer a strong investment opportunity.  Savills and Knight Frank both predict that house prices in London will grow by 14% by 2024, the equivalent capital appreciation of £70,000 on a £500,000 apartment in Waterlily Court.  Estimated rental yields currently stand between 3.53% - 4.45%.

After the turbulence of 2020, London investment remains a clear opportunity as we look towards 2022. One of the biggest factors for investors looking to invest in London property is the disparity between supply and demand. With Buy-to-Let in the UK worth over GBP1 Trillion, research estimates that UK renters will outnumber homeowners by 2039. This represents 125 million households in a private rented sector set to grow by 24%. For investors, this only serves to highlight the power of property investment in London where the market is heavily trending towards renting but is unable to deliver the supply to meet demand.

Large-scale regeneration is often a key signpost for future price growth and Kidbrooke Village is a perfect example of such successful transformation. The launch of Waterlilly Court represents a brilliant opportunity to invest in a home that is located in a well-established community and set within green surroundings, without having to compromise on connectivity to central London. It ticks all the boxes in the regeneration success story – everything is within easy reach, from the on-site train station, to the delivery of new amenities such as quality residential, commercial, leisure and mixed–use spaces, making this an extremely attractive investment proposition.

Overlooking South Cator Park, the interiors of Waterlilly Court homes are designed to echo the waterways and open space on the doorstep which can be viewed from generously sized balconies or through full height windows.  Individually designed layouts ensure light-filled spaces which are adorned with high quality fixtures and finishes like Bosch appliances and brushed stainless steel door handles.  The interiors are designed by Atellior and inspired by the heritage of Kidbrooke Village, mirroring its industrial history and the green landscape that distinguishes it today with a choice of two colour schemes – nature and urban.  The nature palette is characterised by warm wood tones, while the urban palette is cooler and emphasised by matt black details contrasted with alpine white kitchens.

Waterlily Court also boasts an exclusive, residents only podium garden where cherry trees, silver birches and ornamental grasses all help to create a sense of calm and closeness to nature. Residents will also have access to a first class, private-use gym alongside a 24-hour concierge, all included within the service charge. The estimated completion of homes in Waterlilly Court is from April to November 2024. Prices for a one bedroom apartment start from GBP377,500 and range to GBP675,000 for a top floor three bedroom home.

If you are looking to invest in the UK, Waterlilly Court at Kidbrooke Village is a clear opportunity to start building exceptional capital growth while generating consistent rental returns.
