"As I work in London, it was really important to me that my new home had good travel connections, so I focused my property search on areas that combined affordability with proximity to London. Oaklands Hamlet immediately ticked both of these boxes, with the Help to Buy London scheme available and a tube station nearby. My commute now takes me just 45 minutes door to door and there is a dedicated bus service from the development to Hainault Station so I no longer need to drive to and from the station. I had viewed some other new developments in the area, but the build quality of my new home is second to none. I was really pleased with the high standard of the finish. It is one of a block of eight apartments, which has its own parking and a communal garden, which I’m looking forward to spending time in as the weather warms up.”
