Recently smeared by a West End department store as a ‘risky’ postcode, award winning development, Oval Quarter, is set to completely transform the former Myatt’s Field North estate and the area that lies between Camberwell, Oval and Stockwell, bringing a sense of identity and pride back to local residents. Following a very successful launch of the first phase of homes last year, a variety of young professionals have since purchased one of the private sale apartments with the hope of owning a new home within this forever popular district of South London.

Already, local areas such as Oval and Brixton are proving popular places to live due the diversity of local amenities, transport connections and overall cultural offerings. Oval Quarter is just one example of a development where security is not an issue. In fact, there are multiple reasons why residents choose to live here:

  • Walk/ cycle to work: A zone 2 location enables working professionals to walk or cycle to work
  • Transport: Oval underground station provides transport connections to the city within 12 minutes or take a cab from central for just £10
  • Food shopping: Thriving independent deli’s on Brixton Road
  • Enjoy the outdoors: Open green space at Brockwell Park and Oval Quarter’s own park
  • Sports fanatics: World class cricket heritage can be discovered at The Kia Oval
  • Local produce: Visit street markets at St Mark’s Church and Brixton Station Road
  • Culture vultures: Catch a film at The Ritzy Cinema, enjoy the arts at Brixton Art Gallery and Ovalhouse or watch it live at 02 Brixton Academy
  • Nightlife: Enjoy a drink at your local, The Prince Albert, or a late night drink at The Living Room, Club 414 or London’s best selection of clubs in nearby Vauxhall
  • Fine Dining: Grab some great pub grub at The Canton Arms
  • Local Schools: A selection of local primary schools and some of London’s most prestigious higher level universities are on the doorstep including St John The Divine CE primary school, London School of Economics and King’s College


 And all this only 20 minutes from Selfridges…

 The 357 private sale units will form part of the Myatt’s Field North housing regeneration project in South London. The entire PFI project will include the construction of 808 new build homes, and the modernisation and refurbishment of 172 existing homes. The five year regeneration project awarded by Lambeth Council was won by by Pinnacle Regeneration Group Ltd and John Laing plc who have assembled a strong group of delivery partners including Higgins Construction, Notting Hill Home Ownership, Pinnacle PSG, Rydon, and Eon.

Providing more than just a new urban London village, Oval Quarter will offer new and existing residents a vast amount of open, green space within a zone 2 location. The entire scheme covers a total of 12.5 hectares, 7.2 of which are to include landscaped parkland and community gardens, reminiscent of London’s celebrated ‘squares’. Oval Quarter will represent a fresh and dynamic community with its ‘walkable neighbourhood’ layout of open streets and excellent on-site facilities including an express supermarket and other independent stores. A new, state of the art community centre will also form a centrepiece within the development with its floor to ceiling glass windows, open plan layout and high specification interiors. It will house a café, and become the central hub for a nursery, after school clubs and a venue for residents’ and public meetings.

Jeremy Marcus, Sales and Marketing Director at Higgins Homes comments: “Destined to become one of the most desirable, urban postcodes of South London, we’re already experiencing great demand for these new homes; particularly from top London professionals wanting easy access to the workplace and a lifestyle lead by luxury. Already, we have buyers registering their interest for phase two of the homes. We have no doubt that Oval Quarter will certainly put Oval on the map for London living.”

This September will see the second phase release of a further 78 high quality apartments offering a selection of one and two bedroom apartments in a variety of different designs but all with some form of outside space. The design driven apartments will be finished to a high specification with an open-plan living room and a fully fitted kitchen including a range of integrated Smeg appliances, creating the ideal area for relaxing and entertaining guests. All homes will include outdoor space, whether it be a private terrace or balcony. Plus, with each apartment built to a high level of energy efficiency, residents will benefit from reduced monthly bills.

Located in zone 2 (borders zone 1), residents will also benefit from Oval Quarter’s south, central location offering working professionals the opportunity to even walk or cycle to work. Oval tube station is only a short walk away, providing a speedy journey into the city in 10 minutes. Plus, with Brixton Road just around the corner, residents can explore thriving independent deli’s and shops. In addition, Camberwell, Brixton and Clapham are within easy reach providing larger shops, bars and restaurants.
