Family apartments that tick all the boxes

By Andrea Dean, freelance journalist for Metro|| Blog

A family home is almost certainly the biggest purchase of your life, and not one that you’ll want to compromise on. As well as being within your budget and the right size, it needs to be well-designed with plenty of storage, and able to accommodate your household’s requirements not only now but in the foreseeable future, adapting effortlessly to any changes in your family’s dynamic and lifestyle. Other priorities are likely to be proximity to childcare, high-performing schools, transport links and green spaces, and having shops, play areas and leisure facilities on the doorstep will make a world of difference. The pandemic has made us appreciate good neighbours all the more, so moving into an established and caring community where people look out for each other is an important factor for many families.

Greenwich Millennium Village has more than risen to the challenge of delivering homes that fulfil all these requirements at 67 Park Central, a range of spacious new three-bedroom family apartments, maisonettes and duplexes. Spread across a collection of buildings, including the Apex, Vantage, Vista and Aspect Apartments, they provide all the benefits of a house plus the advantage of a host of amenities that make daily life run more smoothly.

With a minimum internal floor area of nearly 85 square metres (920 square feet) these apartments are every bit as big as three-bedroom houses and boast flexible layouts with room to work from home and tons of storage space. Each incorporates an impressive open plan kitchen, living and dining area that’s flooded with natural daylight thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room off the principal bedroom. A useful utility cupboard in the hall houses a freestanding washer/dryer, and there’s private outside space in the form of a balcony or terrace. 

All homes in 67 Park Central benefit from an incredibly high specification as standard

Interior finishes are superb: buyers can look forward to individually designed contemporary kitchens with stone worktops and upstands and fully-integrated branded appliances including dishwashers and combination microwaves, and equally well-appointed bathrooms. Top-end touches such as underfloor heating, balcony lighting and concealed kitchen recycling bins come as standard, and flooring is fitted throughout - carpet in all the bedrooms, ceramic tiles in bathrooms and en-suites, and engineered timber in halls and living areas. There’s fantastic connectivity too, as the whole of Greenwich Millennium Village benefits from superfast fibre broadband, so you won’t have to worry about overloading the network when you’re taking part in a video call for work while the kids stream box sets on Netflix.

One of 67 Park Central’s great advantages is its location, in a prime spot on the edge of Greenwich Millennium Village’s Southern Park. Some of the family apartments look out over this green expanse of parkland - the perfect spot for grabbing some sunshine, enjoying a picnic or kicking a ball around. The adjacent four-acre ecology park gives children a first-hand experience of wildlife and features  lakes, a beach and an eco play area, where they can burn off excess energy.

Getting around is easy as North Greenwich station, on the Jubilee line, is under a mile away, providing fast connections to Canary Wharf (2 minutes),  Bank (9 minutes) and Stratford (8 mins) for essential journeys now and travelling to the office, meetings and exploring the capital with the family once restrictions are lifted. The bars, restaurants and shops at world-class entertainment venue The O2 are also within walking distance, and the Thames Path is waiting to be discovered.

However, you won’t have to venture very far from your front door to find everything you need and more. A nursery, an Ofsted-rated outstanding primary school, a health centre and shops are all on-site, and porters are on hand to take care of deliveries and greet visitors. There are private lobby areas to work in when you fancy a change of scenery, and where you’ll be able to sit with guests in the not-too-distant future. And, when you want to spend some quality time together as a family, playing pool or table football or simply relaxing, there’s no better place than the games room, available exclusively for residents of 67 Park Central to book.

Tempted? You won’t have long to wait, as some three-bedroom apartments at 67 Park Central will be ready to move into from October 2021.
