A far cry from cockney-rhyming and barrow boys selling their wares, the east of London is fast proving to be one of the most desirable areas to live in the capital. With more Londoner’s living east of Tower Bridge than west, its popularity is ever increasing*.

East is Best at St Paul’s Square, Bow

Award-winning developer Countryside’s St Paul’s Square is an exciting development of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments located in Bow E3 in the heart of this vibrant region. 

Known for its community spirit and buzzing atmosphere, St Paul’s Square is popular with young professionals and families alike. Nini Mishra (32), a management consultant based in Bank recently jumped onto the housing ladder at St Paul’s Square and commented: “There is a buzzing atmosphere in East London with lots of quirky restaurants, markets and bohemian bars. I enjoy the nightlife of nearby Shoreditch and Bethnal Green, but I also still have the space of Mile End Park which is five minutes around the corner as well as the Canal at Limehouse Cut. The development itself is also a social hub. We have a Facebook and WhatsApp group and regularly plan socials together. It makes a great community for like-minded young professionals.”

A growing and developing community means that there are endless opportunities for residents at St Paul’s Square to enjoy what the east end has to offer. The artistic hub of Brick Lane is close by and offers a large number of galleries, markets and regular festivals to enjoy.  For a more floral experience, Columbia Road Flower Market takes place on Sundays when the entire street is transformed into a retreat filled with flowers, plants and an entertaining atmosphere. Westfield Stratford City is a mere three miles away, being one of Europe’s largest shopping malls it offers a huge variety of shops, a multiplex cinema and a wide range of restaurants and bars.

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “With the rising popularity of East London, it’s no wonder that St Paul’s Square is proving so popular. The newly opened night-tube runs through this area, making it even more attractive and offers a generous opportunity for value growth. These contemporary apartments are in the prime position to take advantage of both the lively local area, and the excellent transport connections. This combined with a real sense of community, creates the perfect urban home.”

Helping house-hunters to get onto the property ladder in East London, many of the properties at St Paul’s Square can be purchased through the London Help to Buy scheme. This allows buyers to purchase with as little as a 5% deposit and a 55% mortgage based on the value of the home. The Government will then provide an equity loan of up to 40% of the property’s value, which is interest-free for the first five years.

The latest release at St Paul’s Square, Le Mare Terrace features a range of one and two bedroom apartments, with an elegant finish.  Offering an open plan kitchen, living and dining area, there is a large amount of space for entertaining guests. The large windows, balconies or terraces boast views over London and flood the apartments with natural light. The spacious master bedroom boasts a fitted wardrobe, along with access to a contemporary bathroom. The second bedroom offers a flexible space, as another bedroom or it could be used as an office. Finished to a high standard, the kitchen is sophisticated with grey fitted units, gloss accents and stone worktops throughout.
