A recent survey by Tepilo* found that a balcony is deemed to be the top luxury among 43% of Brits, with many believing that owning a home with this type of outdoor space would only be possible if they won the lottery.

With this in mind it is unsurprising that estate agents, Marsh & Parsons**, found that a property boasting a terrace or balcony is worth an average of 12% more than its counterpart lacking this luxury.

Just launched, Millennium Terrace is the latest phase at Greenwich Millennium Village, offering a stunning range of contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments, duplexes and überhauses. Each new home boasts a generous outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace, so purchasers at this exciting new development on the Greenwich Peninsula, will not only benefit from a superb new property which ticks the ‘dream home box’ but also gain a desirable extra investment.

Ideal for professionals, couples and families looking to enjoy city living with a village feel, Greenwich Millennium Village is an inspirational joint venture development by Countryside and Taylor Wimpey, in association with the Mayor of London; described as one of the most exciting and innovative residential neighbourhoods in Europe.  This latest phase of homes is situated within the Millennium Terrace building and has been designed by leading architects Jestico & Whiles with brightly coloured architectural details that add vibrancy and creativity to the overall development.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Eastern Division comments: “When it comes to buying a city home, many house hunters have to compromise on certain features and therefore don’t find their dream home, but the new apartments within the Millennium Terrace building offer the whole package. All residents will benefit from a balcony or terrace, therefore they will not only be ticking a major box when it comes to owning their dream home but also be securing a further financial investment.

The homes are all designed to a high specification, with a modern edge. From sleek kitchens with superb quality integrated appliances, to luxury tiled and oak flooring and chic contemporary décor, every aspect of the interiors has been carefully selected to create elegant living spaces offering the best in modern living.
