Camden Courtyards is “wooing cyclists”


Find yourself “at home on a bike” in Camden.

Ginetta Vedrickas, London Evening Standard’s property correspondent, discovers who has a handle on cyclists in the property market, with Barratt London’s Camden Courtyards and Aldgate Place developments fitting the bill.

Vedrickas picks out Barratt London’s “car-free scheme”, Camden Courtyards, as having homes built for “the cycling fraternity”. With a well-established cycle network in and around Camden and “296 free cycle spaces”, Camden Courtyards provides plenty of opportunity for residents to “hit the streets” and explore the internationally renowned Camden Town. For the more nervous cyclist, nearby “canal towpaths offer relaxed routes” to try out their new wheels and get up to speed.

“Cycling is now Londoners’ second most popular form of transport after the Tube” says Vedrickas, and with an abundance of bike lanes, bus routes and train stations surrounding the development, Camden Courtyards finds itself ideally located for an easy commute. Hampstead Heath can be reached by bike in 11 minutes, Shoreditch in 18 minutes and the “canal at Regent’s Park, NW1” running from Paddington to Limehouse provides a route to East London. Camden Town Tube station is just an eight-minute walk from the development, where Oxford Circus can be reached in under 20 minutes.

Camden Courtyards will be “ready next summer”, offering 164 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and duplexes”. Residents have plenty of space to relax with courtyard gardens and a communal roof terrace along with a private balcony or terrace at each apartment. The property is designed so residents will enjoy natural light, airflow and privacy, with almost every property boasting dual aspect views from the city to the courtyard.
