There are plenty of reasons to fall for Wyndham Studios - but we’ve whittled it down to our top six:1. It has a unique, arty vibe
Camberwell is famed for being a hub for artists, filled as it is with galleries, cultural spaces and hipster hang outs. In fact, the highly esteemed Camberwell College of Arts is based here - and given the neighbourhood’s creative community, it’s no wonder art students stay on, long after finishing their studies. (Among the well-known artists, actors and musicians that call Camberwell home is Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine fame.) Paying tribute to Camberwell’s artistic character, Wyndham Studios includes a generous ground floor commercial space who’s tenants will provide a constant source of inspiration for its residents and visitors.2. It’s much more than a collection of apartments
Wyndham Studios residents have plenty of communal space to enjoy, including a picturesque central courtyard and private rooftop terraces with impressive city views. Features such as individual bike storage, high-tech video door entry and CCTV cameras across all blocks add value and make this both a safe and sustainable place to live. (We also love how the development combines authentic brick facades with modern, high specification interiors.)3. It offers fantastic value for money
It’s not easy to find a design-led London home, only 2.5 miles from Bank, at a reasonable price - which is one of the many reasons why Wyndham Studios is so special. Less than 20 minutes from central London, and with a unique character of its own, Camberwell is a seriously sought-after neighbourhood, and yet it’s considerably fairer-priced than neighbouring Brixton and Peckham. What’s more, 80% of the privately owned homes at Wyndham Studios are available to purchase on the government’s Help to Buy
scheme, making them an affordable reality for many.4. It’s seriously hip
Londoners come from all corners of the capital to experience Camberwell’s eclectic foodie scene: a plethora of nationalities are represented here, from Greek to South East Asian. Hipster bars and gastropubs set in restored historical buildings offer craft cocktails to accompany electrifying live music sessions, and independently-owned stores, bakeries and cafes occupy Camberwell’s main stretch. No wonder the area attracts a cool, cultural crowd.5. It’s central, but surrounded by green spaces
Another neighbourhood highlight is the ample green space, most noticeably Burgess Park - one of London’s largest at 56 hectares. Stretching from Camberwell to Bermondsey, the park is home to a picturesque lake, several sports facilities (including floodlit tennis courts), prestigious world gardens and a few listed buildings. Nearby Ruskin Park is another gem, where Edwardian landscape design, wetlands and meadows set the scene for weekends spent outdoors.6. It’s so easy to get around
Wyndham Studios enjoys coveted Zone 2 status - you’re surrounded by transport options that’ll get you to your central London office in less than 20 minutes. A choice of buses serve the area but this is also a great place to travel by two wheels, thanks to the cycle superhighway and other routes - some of which go through Burgess Park, making the short commute to work a pleasurable experience. Did we mention it’s only a 17-minute cycle ride to Bank?
