Find your forever home at Barking Riverside

What does your dream family home look like? Maybe it has a large garden for the children to play outdoors with the neighbours, or a modern kitchen filled with inspiration to try out new recipes.

L&Q’s new townhouses at Parklands, Barking Riverside, offer something for all the family. Almost 70% larger than the Mayor of London’s minimum space standard for a four bedroom home, the expansive townhouses provide the best of vertical living.

Each home is spread across four floors, with a spacious rear garden, separate kitchen and living room and generous master bedroom, complete with en-suite bathroom and dressing room.

Claire Brenlund, Sales and Customer Service Director for L&Q’s East Region, comments: “We are delighted to be offering these homes through Help to Buy, ensuring that London’s first-time buyers are able to find their forever home at Barking Riverside. Using the full 40% Help to Buy loan, a deposit of just £28,500 secures a townhouse – a third of the average first-time buyer deposit in London.”

Homes at Parklands come equipped with contemporary kitchens, complete with sleek units and a plethora of integrated top-of-the-range appliances. Pristine bathrooms have smart white sanitaryware, as well as ceramic floor and wall tiles.

In addition to providing fantastic homes, Barking Riverside will offer all the crucial infrastructure for raising a family. Included in the masterplan is provision for seven schools, with four already open and recently receiving some of the best results in the borough. Riverside Campus is the largest free school campus in the UK, and will offer place for 2,600 pupils across a primary, secondary and special educational needs school.

The masterplan also includes plans for shops, restaurants, cafes, community centres, leisure and healthcare facilities, providing all the amenities you need right at your fingertips.

As well as four-bedroom townhouses, Parklands offers a selection of one, two and three bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, and one to four-bedroom homes available through London Help to Buy.
