No Place But Home

As the city begins to loosen its lockdown and Londoners are emerging cautiously back into the world, we are respectful of these gradual steps towards normality and continue to work from home. Over the past few months of remote working and virtual meetings, we have been afforded the time to take a good hard look at the housing market and how it has evolved due to Covid-19.

It is now clear that 2020’s buyers will be more conscious about the type of property they want. In these times of ‘no place but home’, our residences have become hybrid-homes, serving as the office, a restaurant, a cinema and a gym all in one. As a result, it is predicted that lifestyle destinations featuring quality residences paired with working hubs, leisure spaces and private gardens in the same building will be increasingly valued by all. Home office space, outside areas and open sky views are quickly rising up the list of priorities alongside somewhere to exercise whilst online classes and Peloton-style workouts become the new routine.

At Northacre, we have always prided ourselves on leading the way in experiential living and crafting lifestyle destinations to suit, and this year is no exception. In fact, at both No. 1 Palace Street and The Broadway, we are already ahead of the curve having prioritised in-house technologies such as touch-free access points and intercoms throughout our buildings as well as offering beautiful spacious areas, both indoors and out, for friends to meet safely and in style.

So, as the Government’s directive has changed from ‘stay home’ to ‘stay alert’, we remain ever more mindful about the demands of today’s city dweller and continue our legacy of creating some of London’s most superior homes.
