Quartet – sustainable living in the heart of London
Our appreciation for outdoor space, and sustainable living has never been higher than now. In London, it can sometimes feel congested, and polluted, and this has contributed to the exodus of many to the home counties and further afield. However, for those wanting to balance city life and an urban outdoor lifestyle, our new development Quartet does exactly this.
Located on Clapton Common, North London, it has been designed as an oasis of clean living, offering residents an escape from busy city life. Every part of Quartet has been carefully created with residents in mind, like ensuring open access to vast amounts of green space and apartments looking over the treetops of Clapton Common.
Access to outdoor space in London is crucial to homeowners’ sense of wellbeing, and at Quartet, residents have access to a number of wildlife havens, such as Walthamstow Wetlands and Lee Valley Park. To promote sustainable living, the local council has provided various cycle links between the Wetlands, Lee Valley, Tottenham Marshes and many of the local reservoirs.
Quartet has been designed for cycling enthusiasts wanting to make the most of these cycle links, as it provides 220 cycling spaces, making it easier for local residents to use and store their bike. This also gives residents the opportunity to utilise their bike as transport to and from work, as those working in the city can make use of the cycle paths going into central London. Residents will also have admission to Car Club, allowing access to cars locally and all around the UK 24/7.
Inside Quartet, residents will have the luxury of owning a home that offers a real sanctuary. Along with being surrounded by greenery and great views of the common, the design of the homes has been created to be light and airy, as windows open in two directions, offering more opportunities for daylight, direct sunlight and choice of view. Along with all the natural light provided throughout the apartments, all homes have been fitted with energy-efficient lighting to ensure residents can maintain a sustainable lifestyle.
Countryside is committed to creating a green future and offering homes that prosper resident’s health and wellbeing, as well as enjoying inner-city life. Quartet will bring 132 beautifully designed homes to the area, including one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom duplexes.
