New developments on the market this week
Kidbrooke Village, Greenwich
From £567,500 for a two bed with two bathrooms
First time buyers can get on the ladder – and be part of a £1bn regeneration project – on the outskirts of Blackheath with the launch of these new Help to Buy homes. The interior design of the open plan apartments at Birch House, which are close to a new Cator Park, are inspired by Gustav Klimt’s Birch Forest painting. Buyers also get access to a 24 hour concierge, private gym, rooftop lounge and Zipcar membership.

Help to Buy homes are also going on sale in an up-and-coming part of west London that’s awaiting its new Crossrail station.
