This development was completed in October 2022.
3 shared ownership, 6 social rent and 11 private sales homes

Sixty Bricks is proud to present 20 new residential apartments located at Essex Close.

Set close to the open spaces of the Walthamstow Wetlands and Lee Valley Park, near the site of an old brick kiln, where bricks and tiles were made, this stunning new development offers the perfect opportunity to own a home in a popular London location. This will consist of the redevelopment of the former garage site, situated to the rear of Essex Close.

50% of the homes are for social rent and shared ownership. In total there are 6 social rent, 3 for shared ownership, and 11 homes for sale. All Shared Ownership and Private Sale properties have now been sold.

A communal garden and play area are included within this development.

The affordable homes will be funded through a cross-subsidy generated from the homes for sale and grant from the Greater London Authority.

The new development is located within walking distance of St James Street Station and Blackhorse Road Station, which runs a direct service to central London (London Victoria) within 24 minutes.

Social Rent homes will be let through the Council’s Housing Allocation Scheme. Click here to find out more about the Council’s housing allocation scheme.

Shared Ownership 

Shared Ownership is an affordable home ownership scheme which makes it easier for first time buyers to get on the property ladder. Buyers purchase a share of property, and pay rent on the remaining share. Shared Ownership is a great way for first time buyers to get on the property ladder, as it can dramatically reduce the amount required for a deposit.
