Affordable houses aimed at people buying their first home have gone on sale in Deptford.

The 30 one-bedroom apartments on Arklow Road are set within a six-storey 1920s red brick building and all cost less than £250,000.

The apartments are targeted towards people looking to buy their first home, specifically with an income under £54,500.

It’s the second development by affordable housing company Pocket Living and follows their first batch in Lewisham on Marischal Road.

Lucian Smithers, Pocket Living’s sales and marketing director, said: “Not a week passes without another report telling us the difficulties that hard-working young people are facing getting onto the property ladder in London. T

“These new affordable Pocket homes on Arklow Road give first time buyers currently based in Lewisham a chance to access homeownership and put down roots in a genuine community of owner-occupiers.

“Behind the striking industrial red brick façade of Arklow Road we have created a collection of beautifully designed homes that are available with Help to Buy London.”
