James Munson, Head of Marketing for Notting Hill Genesis, comments: “Cycling in London has always been a popular mode of transport, getting city workers and families to work and school often faster than by car or public transport and offering a relatively easy way to access the countryside beyond the city. Lockdown life has certainly impacted the way Londoners are now choosing to live, accelerating a healthier approach to travel and lifestyle and this is also being adopted when it comes to buying a new home too. Our selection of homes at Peckham Place provide the ideal location from which buyers can jump on their bikes with ease for commuting, leisure and fitness and enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits that cycling offers.”

David Panek (35) purchased a two-bedroom apartment at Peckham Place after he regularly cycled past the development on his way to work: “The development is within easy walking or cycling distance of so many day-to-day amenities, it’s such a brilliant location to commute from. Queen’s Road station is literally just a three-minute walk away, providing regular trains into the capital and with Peckham Rye Station being re-developed, it will only further improve travel links which is an added bonus. One of the many positives of buying a new build property is the quality and proportion of the homes, at Peckham Place this really impressed me. It can often be difficult to find a property that benefits you and also fits your budget, however Peckham Place did just that, it’s perfect.”
Each property has been designed to provide bright, spacious and well-thought layouts, with every home enjoying access to a generously sized private terrace or balcony, with some of the larger properties having dual outside space. Living/kitchen/dining spaces are open-plan and come complete with a range of high-quality integrated appliances. The three-bedroom duplexes all benefit from having their own private entrances direct from street level, and a private rear terrace or balcony with direct access to or overlooking the stunning landscaped communal gardens where residents have a tranquil oasis to enjoy on sunnier days. These particular homes offer the modern arrangement and privacy of a traditional house layout, whilst also being within a thriving new community in the heart of one of London’s much-loved urban villages.
