Homes near Custom House Station on the Elizabeth Line, currently cost less than half the London average, at least until the station becomes fully operable in late December 2018 writes Emily Wright from the Evening Standard’s Homes and Property. Many of these homes are included in the development Rathbone Market, just a short journey away from Custom House Station*. Since 2009, this new development of Shared Ownership homes in East London has undergone a significant period of regenerative change, making it a convenient spot to access many city locations and a comparatively more affordable place to buy a home than other parts of London. In this article we discuss the current and future transport connections available to potential first-time buyers.

This area of Newham is well-served by local bus routes, with Custom House Station just 11 minutes away. Directly opposite Canning Town station will be Hallsville Quarter – a brand new town centre development of homes, retail and leisure facilities, includes a cinema, gym, and will sit alongside a mix of independent retailers and landscaped public spaces.
Travelling by London Underground

Just two stations away is Stratford City; home to Westfield Shopping Centre, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Aquatic Centre, and plenty of sports events happening within the Olympic stadium and grounds.
Travelling by foot
The ability to nip out for a carton of milk or quick spin class first thing in the morning can be the catalyst to making a new area feel like home. Rathbone Market is 3 minutes away from a Co-Operative Food and 60 seconds from a Fitness4less, which has free classes and friendly staff.
