Converted tramyard site with train and tube links

The Tramyard, Balham

The subject of transport is never far from the lips of Londoners. Apart from a very few who live and work in the centre or close to home, the rest of us are commuters reliant on tubes, trains and buses. Those living in and around Croydon, south London, also have trams to ferry them around. Nearby, in Balham, The Tramyard, by Joseph Homes, has just launched in a prime location on Balham High Road, between Balham and Tooting Bec Underground stations. Appropriately, the 70 stylish, contemporary one and two-bedroom apartments, two and three-bedroom duplexes and penthouse are located on the site of the last tram yard in Balham. By train, London Victoria is 16 minutes away, London Bridge 17 minutes and Waterloo 20 minutes. Prices start from £499,999 and selected homes are available to purchase through Help to Buy, tramyard-balham.co.uk

Crossrail will cut the journey time by half

The Loftings, Maidenhead

This site is a stone’s throw from the town’s railway station. Upgrades, to accommodate the arrival of Crossrail, will mean the current journey time of 50 minutes to London Paddington will be significantly reduced to just 22 minutes. The price for a one-bedroom apartment start at £299,950. A two-bed, two en-suite mid terrace ‘Eton’ house starts at £419,950, redrow.co.uk
