Peckham is without question one of London’s hot new areas, whether you’re seeking out hipster coffee shops and pop up restaurants or somewhere with a community feel that has played its part in London’s history. In February, Higgins Homes is launching Q on Queens Road in SE15, a new housing development perfectly positioned for everything that Peckham has to offer for those carrying out a property search in the UK.
As well as being incredibly convenient for accessing both central London and the City, Peckham is a location that has really come into its own in recent years in terms of local appeal. Neighbourhood cafes and bars provide a diverse range of food, drink and entertainment and local sights such as the rooftop cinema and the ever-increasing community of artists has given the area some serious cool credentials. The creativity of those who reside in the area has seen Peckham take the crown from areas such as Shoreditch and Hoxton when it comes to innovation and exciting development.
Peckham has become one of London’s foodie capitals, a hub of new restaurants and exciting establishments, such as the Hop, Burns and Black and the modern European cuisine at the Pedlar restaurant. Other local establishments that are quickly becoming iconic include the ultra-cutting edge Italian Artusi restaurant and The Beer Shop, a micro pub and hub for beer lovers. Then there’s the PeckhamPlex, probably one of London’s most interesting cinemas – and the most successful independent cinema in the capital – which has a refreshingly low cost approach to the tickets, which are usually between £4.99 and £5.99.
Just three minutes’ walk from Q is Queens Road (Peckham) station with its direct routes to the City and to areas such as Hackney, as well as a quick connection to Canary Wharf. There are also National Rail routes to Victoria and London Bridge. Here, new development sits alongside embedded cultures and communities to create a vibrant melting pot of food, drink, people and things to do. Q itself offers one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as four penthouse apartments and three family sized units, 258m2 of communal terraces and a cycle space for everyone. The glass and steel structure has been softened with design details that reference the surrounding Victorian architecture and features such as balconies and recessed brick work provide a modern edge. The interiors offer an exceptional finish, high gloss kitchens with integrated appliances, hotel-style bathrooms and plenty of contemporary style.
