Anne-Marie Fletcher, 53, has dreamed of living in Teddington for decades. As a visitor, she has always appreciated the neighbourly atmosphere at events such as the annual Teddington Village Fair and the independent coffee shops and high-end local boutiques that line the High Street. Having lived in Isleworth for 26 years, Anne-Marie has now chosen to purchase a one-bedroom apartment at the popular London Square Teddington development – a secure gated development in a quiet and landscaped setting just a stone’s throw from the centre of Teddington, with a unique community feel of its own.
Living in a home which is part of an active community is very important to me and this is evident not only in Teddington, but at the London Square development itself. I didn’t want to buy a home in a huge block, in which I would return home to a collection of empty and dark apartments, so the size of London Square Teddington suits me perfectly and I am looking forward to getting to know my future neighbours. Now that I am retired, I can take advantage of all the leisure and social opportunities on offer in Teddington. I made my decision to purchase at the development just a day after first seeing the apartment as I was made to feel so at ease by the sales staff.
I like contemporary properties with clean lines and plenty of storage so I was very happy to purchase off-plan. I don’t like the idea of having to cross a dark car park at night time so the secure underground parking was also a big draw for me.
Teddington has a wonderful community spirit, with a string of local events put on throughout the year and a very active High Street lined with local independent businesses. A traditional village feel appeals to both families and downsizers; demographics who put safety, strong neighbourly links and good quality local services at the top of their wish lists.
