Woodberry Down, Stoke Newington

From £475,000

Live in an apartment overlooking a protected nature reserve in north east London that hasn’t been accessible to the public for 200 years. Sir David Attenborough re-opened the Stoke Newington Reservoir in April and now the first homes next to it, The Nature Collection, are on sale. Set across four buildings, there will be 160 one to three bedroom apartments and penthouses on the market next week when the new show apartment is unveiled. It’s part of Berkeley Homes’ Woodberry Down scheme, which will see 5,500 new homes built in total, with over 50,000sqft of retail and leisure space, a business centre, a school academy and a further education campus. First completions are expected at the end of 2018.
