The Glass House in E1 – Purchase Homes via Joint Ownership

There is great news for Londoners of modest means who do not have properties yet, but wish to live in homes boasting mod cons such as granite worktops and shiny bathrooms which are a stone’s throw away from leisure facilities. There is a new shared ownership housing development, located in Shadwell, mid distance between the busy City and the Canary Wharf. Its name is Glass House, and the homes available there can be acquired by means of shared ownership. People willing to purchase can do so, buying between 25 percent and 75 percent, and they can increase their shares at any time they choose. They can also reach 100 percent ownership if they have the means and the wish.
Specially designed to help people who have not acquired their housing yet, and who are unable to produce the means to buy housing on the open market, Glass House is worth exploring, not only because of its sleek interior down to kitchens sparkling with granite worktops. These sleek interior features and granite worktops equipped kitchens can be purchased by people who have modest means. The condition is that the total household income of prospective buyers should not exceed £60,000 annually. They should also have savings, roughly £3,500, to be able to cover their legal and moving costs.
It is a great experience to visit Glass House, located in E1. The residents of Glass House will have the opportunity to lead their active life without having to go or travel long distances to diversify their leisure. The proximity of the Shadwell basin promises great hours of climbing and kayaking, as well as other active outdoor pursuits. Nearby is also St Katharine Docks, for sailing and yachting.
The Glass House comprises eleven properties. The layouts of the apartments include one, two or three bedrooms. Natural light streams amply inside, and the living areas are not only well lit and spacious, but also innovatively designed. Oak laminate flooring as well as carpets welcomes with shine and softness respectively. The kitchens are replete with integrated appliances, and granite worktops lend shine and modernity. The emphasis on generous storage space and granite worktops is special in advertising the Glass House.
Privacy in the kitchen with the convenience of cooking or cutting on granite worktops is extended to private outdoor space – balconies which can be accessed both from the living areas and from the bedrooms. Go out to soak in the London cityscape, with the Thames, the waterfront benches, and a number of facilities such as a bowling green, an all-weather football pitch, and tennis courts.
The Glass House, perfect for commuting, is just minutes’ walk from the Dockland Light Railway stations – Limehouse or Shadwell. Centrally located though it is, the area is serene, and the proximity of the river and the park promises daily opportunities for jogging and walking. Then new owners can go inside their new properties, cook their meals on granite worktops, and go out on the balcony to take in the sweeping panorama.

Granite is an inorganic material that has many of the appropriate conditions to let it be used as the surface material for kitchen worktops. It is one of the most used because of its features, among which are its hardness and heat resistance, resistance to water or moisture intake, and its anti abrasive or corrosive features – juices and liquids that are commonly used in everyday cooking are unlikely to harm it. Besides being very hygienic when well maintained, it is particularly durable and resistant to marks and stains.
