New Shared Ownership apartments in the heart of Ilford
Welcome to The Paragon, an exciting new residential development offering 1 and 2 bedroom apartments in the heart of Ilford. The Paragon is a shining example of contemporary city living. This dazzling new development is sure to draw admiring glances with two iconic towers of 14 and 18 storeys.
Apartments are spacious and incredibly light thanks to large windows, high ceilings and contemporary open-plan living spaces.
Outside, a beautiful landscaped plaza surrounds The Paragon, designed to offer residents a place to sit-back and relax at their leisure. The plaza neatly connects The Paragon to the bustling town centre.
The Paragon is situated on Ilford Hill close to the mainline railway station, which from 2018 will offer the much-awaited Crossrail link. The town is a lively, cosmopolitan community with a wide range of first-class shopping and entertainment. While a little further afield, there are parks and plenty of places for walks or working out.
Best of all, The Paragon is a beacon of hope. As a shared ownership scheme, everybody from couples and sharers to young families has the chance to own a well-built, brilliantly designed, spacious new home at an affordable price.
Bright lights, big city
Ilford is a lively and popular town east of central London. The name first appears in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and means 'Ford over the Hyde', the old name of the local River Roding.
Today, the town is an attractive, welcoming and economically successful area that benefits from its cosmopolitan feel and a host of shops and entertainment. High street retailers rub shoulders with independent stores to offer a wide range of shopping and bars, cafes and restaurants provide plenty of places to meet friends and catch up. If you're looking for entertainment, the area doesn't fail to impress with an 11-screen cinema complex, bowling alley and theatre all close by. And if that still isn't enough, the clubs and live music venues offer somewhere to hang out late into the evening.
Further afield, Valentines Park is the largest green space in the borough. It plays host to Valentines Mansion & Gardens, a magnificent Georgian house and tranquil walled garden, that includes a unique dry garden opened by the Queen in 2012. Seven Kings Park also nearby, holds the prestigious Green Flag award for cleanliness. In addition to green spaces, there's a skate park and children's play area with the grounds also extremely popular with dog walkers, joggers or those keen to sit and take in the views.
Be part of Ilford's Bright Future
Ilford is part of a major regeneration programme, which is set to re-establish the town as the heart of east London. The multi-million pound investment will create new homes, new jobs and further improve Ilford's transport links throughout the area.
Ilford Hill will also benefit from a street redevelopment project, adding to the exciting expansion of the area. It will introduce new pedestrianised areas and cycle facilities, as well as a new meadow space opposite the Exchange Shopping Centre. In all, the regeneration will improve the quality, look and feel of Ilford, Perfect for The Paragon and its new owners
