Aquarelle House is a two-bedroom property in the beating heart of Zone 1, located on the second floor in a twelve-storey block of 50 flats, built eleven years ago and has an approximate size of 74 sq. meters.
Picturesque Regent’s Canal lets you traverse the capital in secret – west to Camden, east to Hackney. Hipster hangout Broadway Market in 15 minutes, verdant Victoria Park in 20. City Road basin is your local aquatic playground. Learn to love local as the area has you served for shopping. Islington for high-street fashion and upscale boutiques like Sefton. Shoreditch for menswear stores Oliver Spencer, Sunspel, J Crew and APC. Fine fragrance at La Labo, products from Aesop, luxe lifestyle from Goodhood or SCP. The ever-evolving pop-ups of Boxpark.
Some of London’s iconic cultural venues are here: Sadler’s Wells for dance, the Barbican for concerts, art and film, the Almeida for ground breaking drama, Union Chapel for intimate gigs. Top contemporary gallery Victoria Miro is round the corner, while the Whitechapel mounts world-class shows. Want to catch a film? From Vue to independent Rich Mix and luxury Screen on the Green, this is cinema central.

Virgin Trains to the north and Scotland, Eurostar to Paris and Brussels. A few stops south and you’re at London Bridge: The Shard, Borough Market, trains to Gatwick. Or the Jubilee line to Canary Wharf for that morning meeting. The bars and theatres of Soho and the West End are just two miles west. The same distance south takes you to the South Bank – arts central, with Tate Modern, the BFI and the National.

What is Resale Shared Ownership?
Through Shared Ownership you can buy up to 75% of the property, paying a low-cost rent on the remaining unpurchased 'share' of the home. What's more, your mortgage deposit is based on the value of the share you buy, not the full market value, making these homes even more affordable than buying through private sale. With resale properties, you must purchase your first share at the percentage the existing leaseholder owns or more.
