A typical one-bedroom home for sale in the E8 postcode area is priced at over £250,000*, yet one-bedroom apartments in Hackney at Amhurst Corner are priced from only £199,950.
Two-bedroom apartments at the development offer even better value for money from as little as £284,950, compared to more than £350,000 for the second-hand equivalent in the area.
Homes at Amhurst Corner are also competitively priced when compared with the cost of Stoke Newington flats and flats in Bow.
Tony Woodman, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “This unique development offers superb value for money in a popular, up-and-coming London location, so it’s no surprise that over half the apartments have already been sold at Amhurst Corner.
“The new homes are proving a particular hit with young professionals who are finding they can afford to take their first step onto the property ladder thanks to the amazing savings on offer.”

This fantastic initiative lets first-time buyers double their deposits up to 10% of the purchase price of selected homes at this sought-after development, with an interest-free, 10-year loan from the housebuilder.
