Inspired Homes is launching its Abbeville Place show apartment during a two-day event taking place between 4.30pm and 8.30pm on Thursday, 25 and 10.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday, 27 April.

Abbeville Place is Inspired’s first central London micro-apartment development and comprises 41 high specification one and two-bedroom micro-apartments.

The development is located at 177 Abbeville Road in the heart of highly desirable Abbeville Village – a stone’s throw from Clapham Common and the trendy bars, cafes and shops of Clapham High Street. It’s a rare opportunity for young professional renters to get a foot on the ladder in one of South West London’s most sought-after locations.

Apartments at Abbeville Place are around 20% more affordable than typical new builds in the area because they are smaller. With Help to Buy London, buyers with a 5% deposit of £21,250 can take advantage of a 40% Government Equity Loan. This means they only need to raise a mortgage for the remaining 55% of the £425,000 purchase price to buy an entry level one-bedroom apartment. That equates to monthly repayments of approximately £863 on a typical 30-year mortgage at 1.99%.

The development offers seamless living spaces that do away with space-wasting hallways to create homes that are streamlined for the city dweller. Originally a 1930s office building, Abbeville Place has been converted by Inspired Homes to create a striking new gated residential community set in beautiful landscaped gardens.

With designer kitchens and bathrooms, white quartz worksurfaces, Neff appliances, oak engineered wood flooring in living areas and porcelain marble-effect bathroom tiles, Abbeville Place offers a luxurious specification at a price that’s affordable, along with British designed Smart home technology by Orcomm and the UK’s fastest broadband, Hyperoptic.

Martin Skinner, CEO of Inspired Homes, said: “Come see our first central London show apartment. Micro-living helps those priced out of the market to get a foot on the ladder, whilst providing a beautiful spec that they can show off to friends. You won’t find anywhere else as affordable with this spec, in a prime Abbeville Village location.”  

Danish furniture retailer BoConcept have created a sense of understated elegance in the two-bedroom show apartment, with a premium interior scheme that will appeal to Clapham’s young professional market. Francesca Grassi, Design Manager at BoConcept Contract, said: “We created a fresh, elegant design which is very contemporary in the use of materials, with noir elements, accent blues and touches of brass to add warmth. We wanted to showcase the sense of space as much as possible by using furniture with clean lines, wall mounted bookshelves and clip on nightstands, with additional storage beneath beds.”

Nestled among Abbeville Village’s beautiful residential streets are a parade of independent shops, including Gail’s Artisan Bakery and Ginger Pig Butchers, MacFarlane’s Fromagerie and Bottle Apostle’s wine and craft beers. Local restaurant choices are vast, ranging from Latino cocktails and cool pop ups at Brixton Market to some of the capital’s most esteemed Michelin starred restaurants just around the corner on Clapham High Street.

Clapham Common Underground station is just five minutes’ walk from Abbeville Place. The Northern Line takes you into the heart of London in just 17 minutes, through Old Street’s Silicon roundabout and on to Kings Cross in 25 minutes for Eurostar services from St Pancras International to the continent. Clapham Junction is just a fifteen-minute walk away, offering connections across the South East.

Prices from £425,000 with London Help to Buy available.
