Dentist Robert Lee planned to buy his first London home in the King’s Cross area. Prices there were too high for his budget so he began to look across a wider area of North London.
He found the two-bedroom apartment he wanted, at a price he could afford at London Square Caledonian Road, a stylish landmark development of apartments around a central courtyard, between Islington and within walking distance of King’s Cross.
I have moved around a lot and was living abroad in New Zealand for a while. When I returned to the UK, I moved back in with my family whilst looking for work. I am now working in Jersey during the week, where I live in a house share and then I travel back to London for weekends.
I love London and am desperate to make it home and have my own place that I can put my stamp on. I started looking in King’s Cross, specifically Granary Square St Pancras, which was my ideal location, but the prices were unaffordable. When l found out about the London Square Development on Caledonian Road, I called the same day to find out more, organised a site visit and ended up putting in an offer that evening! The apartment is light with large French windows and a balcony, overlooking the London skyline. It’s big enough for what I need and having a spare bedroom and bathroom means my friends and family can come to stay comfortably.
The buying process was pretty straightforward. I put an offer in on the day l first went to the deveiopment and it was accepted within 3O minutes Then within two weeks I met with the solicitor, all arranged by London Square, to sign the paperwork and start the buying process. I can’t wait to move in!
Getting back to King’s Cross St Pancras from Gatwick or Luton airport is so easy and Caledonian Road is only one stop further on the tube from there. Granary Square is a 20-minute walk from the apartment, with its restaurants, bars and weekend food markets, plus some great events at Central St Martin’s. I think it’s ideal that one can get just about anywhere in London from Kings Cross and that the Eurostar is there if you want to head further afield.
