City living and tranquil countryside
Blackhorse View is directly next to Walthamstow Wetlands, a historic complex of reservoirs that even today supplies Londoners with their daily drinking water. The reservoirs and their natural surroundings form the largest, urban wetland nature reserve in Europe.
A Site of Special Scientific Interest, it is home to an abundance of plants and wildlife, as well as listed buildings that help tell the story of its engineering past. The Walthamstow Wetlands are open to the public, offering over 500 acres of natural habitat to enjoy and explore – and giving your new home a link to London’s pioneering history.
An exciting place to live
Blackhorse View may be next to the tranquil Walthamstow Wetlands, but it’s also part of a vibrant neighbourhood that’s on the up-and-up. Over on the west side of the River Lea, South Tottenham is being transformed into a buzzing creative hub. The Bernard Works Scheme near Seven Sisters tube station is home to a growing community of creative businesses and studios, situated alongside a state-of-the-art music rehearsal space, a café and a new pavilion area for exhibitions.
The creative scene doesn’t stop there. The nearby Bernie Grant Arts Centre is a £15m, purpose-built facility with a 274-seat auditorium and rehearsal space that does amazing work developing culturally diverse artists. It has a thriving enterprise centre and a café/bar too.
If music is your thing, The Recordshop is a social enterprise that offers free recording facilities for young people aged between 16 and 25. Then there’s Ada, The National College for Digital Skills, training the next generation of games designers, technology entrepreneurs and many other cutting-edge professions.
A sustainable community and a space to grow
Landscaped, communal courtyard gardens have been planted with new trees. Each L&Q Shared Ownership apartment has a balcony or terrace for you to enjoy. There are also new shops, cafés and workspaces, bringing fresh variety and interest to the neighbourhood.
Blackhorse View has been designed with excellent environmental credentials. The development boasts rooftop solar panels, helping to reduce carbon emissions. Improved cycle and walking routes make getting around both sustainable and healthy.
