Galliard Homes is launching Silver Works, an elegant new courtyard development of 191 new homes located at Grove Park, in the heart of Colindale. Galliard Homes highlight that Colindale NW9, is now recognised as one of London's most significant areas for growth, inward investment and regeneration.
Silver Works comprises six elegant and individual apartment buildings integrated into a handsome landscaped environment of communal courtyards and gardens. The 191 high-specification homes comprise energy-efficient suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, plus six executive 4-bedroom town houses.
Colindale is benefiting from the £4.5 billion transformation of neighbouring Brent Cross and West Hendon. This will establish the area as a new gateway into central London, as well as clearly identifying Colindale as a rising ‘city suburb’ destined to become one of London’s most popular residential destinations.
Galliard Homes highlight that Silver Works will be a key element in the revival of Colindale and North London. The site was originally occupied by a former telephone and electric works building, prior to which it was used by the RAF in the First World War for ammunition manufacturing, storage and aeroplane component production.
Now with the new Silver Works development, Galliard Homes are adding an exciting new chapter to the site’s history. The apartments feature terraces or balconies whilst town houses have private gardens. There is both surface and secure underground parking facilities, as well as bicycle storage facilities.
Private entrance lobbies and lifts serve each apartment building, with apartments and town houses benefiting from highly refined and superior specification. Features include a bespoke entertainment unit in the living area, with wide-screen 40-50” LED smart TV and sound-bar, plus low-level bookcase and cupboard space above. There are also satellite and terrestrial TV sockets to living rooms and bedrooms, with Sky+ TV to living/dining area.
The fully fitted kitchens feature Smeg integrated kitchen appliances, including low-level oven, microwave, four-ring ceramic hob with hood, plus washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Floor finishes include natural oak engineered hardwood one-strip flooring to living/dining room, kitchen and hallway, plus large-format porcelain bathroom floor and wall tiling. Internal and entrance doors are also oak-veneered.
The homes are illuminated by recessed low-energy downlighting, with dimmers in living room and bedrooms. Bathrooms are finished in pure white sanitary ware, with chrome-plated taps and towel rail. Bedrooms contain fully fitted wardrobes.
Ideally located so as to benefit from excellent local transport links, Silver Works is just 10 minutes’ walk from Colindale underground station (on the Northern Line), providing direct services into central London. Euston and King’s Cross are around 20 minutes away, and Tottenham Court Road plus Bank are around 30 minutes away.
Silver Works is also close to the main A5 Edgware Road leading directly to Marble Arch and out of London to the Chilterns and St. Albans. Linking up with the M25, the northbound M1 is only 10 minutes from Silver Works, and Brent Cross shopping centre is less than five minutes away.
There are open spaces and leisure opportunities under a mile distant at Fryent Country Park and Brent (the ‘Welsh Harp’) Reservoir. Colindale has varied and affluent neighbouring boroughs that include Mill Hill, Hendon and Edgware. The entire locality is a cosmopolitan and diverse area, featuring numerous restaurants, impressive retail centres, excellent schools and an abundance of green space
David Galman, Group Sales Director at Galliard Homes said: “Silver Works represents a lynchpin development for Colindale, setting the standards that will secure the area’s role as a key residential hub in north London. Galliard Homes has taken great care to ensure the premium-quality construction and specifications of the Silver Works are of the very best quality, whilst also representing exceptional value for money.”
