A collection of 19 properties have been opened for sale by SiteSales Property Group on behalf of Islington Council in the borough of Islington, North London.
The Dove Quarter development comprises a collection of luxury four one- and two-bedroom apartments and 15 two- and three-bedroom houses. The development forms part of Islington Council’s regeneration programme that aims to transform the Dover Court estate in North London, creating a new public realm and providing 70 high-quality homes for social rent and private sale on council-owned land, 51 of which will be for council rent.
The remainder of the homes are to be built on nine sites at the estate, including former garages and car parking, with a new purpose-built development planned for residents aged over 55. Construction Group Lovell Homes has commenced work for the developer, Islington Council, on the three-year construction programme.
Eloise Robbins, Director at Site Sales Property Group, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Islington Council to be launching this brand new development in North London. The Dove Quarter development will further add to the burgeoning reputation of Islington as an up-and-coming area of London to live. We’ve received a lot of interest so far and I’m sure these meticulously designed properties will prove popular with buyers.”
The majority of the new homes on the development will be council homes that include flats and houses — with sizes ranging from one-bed flats to five-bed houses. The additional homes for private sale will help to finance the project. All the new homes will be high quality modern buildings meeting current construction standards. Typical features of the new homes will include: high levels of insulation to reduce energy bills; good sound insulation between homes; wide stairs and corridors to ensure good access for all; solar panels to generate electricity; large double-glazed windows; and bicycle storage. The council has also consulted with the local police to ensure that the house designs meet Secured by Design standards.
