With the launch of the Northern Line’s weekend night services, its designation as one of the Mayor of London’s opportunity areas, and the anticipated £4.5billion regeneration of the nearby Brent Cross, the once little known Colindale is now more than ready to shed its previous status as a quiet and unassuming residential suburb, and emerge from the shadows as one of London’s property hotspots.
With Colindale’s leafy streets, flourishing town centre, and well placed position of the commuter belt proving increasingly popular amongst young professionals and families alike, Galliard Homes has launched Silverworks, a residential development consisting of 191 high specification, eco-friendly homes. The site was originally an RAF manufacturing site, which supported the war effort in the 1940s by producing ammunition and aeroplane parts for the Royal Air Force. More recently the site served as a telephone and electric works building.
Spread across six individually designed blocks consisting of one, two or three bedroom apartments each complete with private terraces or balconies, Silverworks will also feature six four-bedroom townhouses all with private gardens in the scheme. The development will also offer 13 disability-friendly apartments with lower level kitchen units, wardrobes and a versatile shower solution. All homes can take advantage of landscaped greenery of the communal grounds.
Apartments are serviced by private entrance lobbies and lifts, with all properties built to the highest technical specifications.
All homes will also benefit from modern fully fitted kitchens featuring integrated Smeg appliances, including a low-level oven, microwave, four-ring ceramic hob with hood, plus washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Meanwhile, low energy LED downlighting features throughout all apartments and townhouses, highlights bright white glass splash backs sitting alongside stone worktops and stainless steel sinks and taps.
Bathrooms are finished in neutral colours, with porcelain floor tiles, and reconstituted stone vanity tops complemented by pure white sanitary ware, with chrome-plated taps and heated towel rail. Bedrooms contain fully fitted wardrobes, and feature dimmers for the LED lighting.
With the site located just a short walk from Colindale Underground station, Silverworks is well placed for the work and play. Residents can take advantage of the weekend late tube openings, and enjoy a lively night out in the City or West End, before returning to peaceful leafy surroundings. Those preferring a quieter life can take in the beautiful green space, and peaceful stretch of water at the nearby Brent reservoir.
Above and below ground secure parking is available at an extra cost, with secure cycle storage also provided.
Silverworks is now over 60% sold. The Nicola Fontanella-designed show suite is available to view now.
