Our latest development, Ecole, is a unique collection of inspired homes for sale in South East London. Located in the heart of Bermondsey, and therefore enviably positioned within close proximity to central London, this collection provides a modern, urban lifestyle without compromising on soul, community and space.
Just a ten-minute walk from Bermondsey station, just three stops from Waterloo, and with direct links to Bond Street and London Bridge via the Jubilee line, Ecole residents are well connected by public transport, but with an immediate array of places to explore, getting around on foot has huge appeal.
Bermondsey is a vibrant, youthful neighbourhood increasingly recognised as one of London’s best areas to live. From being bombed in the Blitz, to sitting derelict in the 60s, to becoming an industrial hub in the 80s, it now appeals to avid food and culture lovers seeking that elusive villagelike feel within central London. With its line-up of tastefully converted wharfs and warehouses, independent cafés, bars, and shops as well as open green spaces and antique markets, Bermondsey is somewhat of a well-kept secret that truly has something for everyone.
An array of speciality coffee shops, antique stalls, public gardens, and a thriving arts scene can all be found in this buzzy but relaxed pocket of Southeast London, including one of the world’s most prolific contemporary art galleries, White Cube. As if that isn’t enough to enthral both lucky Bermondsey residents and in-the-know visitors, the Fashion and Textile Museum and the new 900-seat Bridge Theatre are there to attract the culture crowd, while the infamous Bermondsey Beer Mile – a 1.4 mile amalgamation of brewery bars and bottle shops meandering through the railway arches of South London – offers a unique experience for a weekend afternoon.
For foodies, the culinary scene has expanded from the nearby, uber-trendy Borough Market area and locals have a number of independent eateries with seasonal menus and thoughtful interiors to ogle on any given day or night. Once indulged, Bermondsey Spa Gardens or the local antiques market, known as one of the five best in Europe, are there for a stroll and a peruse.
Comprising of 30 modern homes, including private studios, one and two-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom duplexes, Ecole offers contemporary homes with individuality. Architecturally designed to harmonise with the neighbourhood, the ground floor of the development follows the pattern of traditional terrace housing, while the brickwork of the exterior integrates seamlessly with the colours and textures of Thorburn Square.
On the inside, homes feel light, bright, and airy, with each apartment carefully designed to optimise natural daylight, while many boast dual or triple aspects capitalising on the open views and light. As can be expected from all Higgins Homes developments, apartments at Ecole are fitted with high-quality fixtures throughout, including quality kitchen appliances by Bosch, so residents can move in knowing their new home is already kitted out to the highest standard.
Built with community and sustainability in mind, our Ecole development is centred around a communal green space, overlooked by a green roof terrace for all residents to gather and enjoy the peace, quiet and sunshine found at rooftop height. With Bermondsey’s central location residents can opt to take the cycle lane, whether going to work or exploring the area, with extensive spaces to securely store a bike within the development.
