Heron Quarter show home bedroomHeron Quarter at Woodberry Down is a striking collection of 62 one and two-bedroom apartments available to purchase via Shared Ownership, which has proven the perfect choice for first time buyers.

Apartment Two, a ground floor one-bedroom property with over 50 sqm of private terrace, perfectly showcases the homes on offer here. A shared space overlooks a narrow boulevard landscaped with a host of herbaceous borders, which journeys down to the serene setting of the West Reservoir guaranteeing an idyllic setting year-round.

Beautifully designed by Interiors by Abode, the interior draws inspiration from the development’s vast green spaces; with natural materials and textured wallpapers in subtle natural and blue tones throughout. Every detail has been considered in the specification, from above average ceiling heights and vertical space saving radiators to full height windows and doors flooding the rooms with natural light. First time buyers are sure to feel at home here.
