Being delivered by developer Galliard and Section 106 partner, Eastend Homes, homes at Orchard Wharf are putting a riverside lifestyle in reach for first-time buyers, with deposits starting from just £5,338.*

Wendy Hegarty, Partner at Red Loft, comments: “Orchard Heights offers a rare opportunity for first-time buyers to enjoy a waterside lifestyle in the capital, on one of London’s hidden rivers, which is why we are especially pleased to be marketing the first phase of Shared Ownership apartments on behalf of Eastend Homes.

The homes are perfect for city professionals and the influx of buyers returning to London who are eager to get onto the property ladder. Each apartment has been designed to offer the best of a modern home in the capital, with stylish open plan living and entertaining spaces complete high-quality interiors and integrated appliances.”
