Verve on Tennison Road

Tennison Road -  South Norwood

Situated on Tennison Road, South Norwood, Verve is a brand new housing development from Fairview New Homes Ltd. The development comprises a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, duplex apartments and living/working homes.

Each of the properties is being built to offer potential buyers the best possible design in an outstanding location within London. Verve benefits from excellent connections to the city, including road and rail links, and is only three miles drive north of Croydon.

Fairview New Homes Ltd Sales Director, Steven Allenby, said:

“Verve’s proximity to London Bridge for city works, an up and coming location with good community facilities, not to mention average rental yields of 7.0% which, in comparison with lower bank interest rates for savers, offers an attractive package. This has led to a swell of off-plan buyers who are also keen to benefit from entry prices in the early stage of development. Average rents have increased in outer London by 1.9% in the first quarter of this year compared with last year and we believe they will continue upwards.”

Work on Verve is being completed in phases, with properties on Phase One being released in August 2013.

Properties at Verve include fitted carpets to the entrance hall, living room and bedrooms, with beech-effect internal doors, Carlisle brass door ironmongery in chrome finish and almond white walls. Kitchen units at Verve are being supplied by Manhattan and include brushed nickel-effect handles and black worktops.

Additional features in the kitchen areas include stainless steel 1.5 bowl sinks, with water saving chrome mixer taps; fully integrated Electrolux washer dryer; and a Zanussi electric oven with ceramic hob. Aluminium downlights and under counter LED lights are also being installed, along with ceramic floor tiles.

Bathrooms include white sanitaryware from Ideal Standard, chrome fittings – including downlights and heated towel rail – and a retractable drying line. Meanwhile cloakrooms are being finished with screeded floors and fluorescent lighting is being installed into work areas.

As safety and security is always an important factor in creating new properties, units at Verve include an audio entry system, security locks to all ground and podium level external doors and windows and smoke detectors.

Verve joins current developments for Fairview New Homes Ltd, which include Vantage, Spectrum, Renaissance, Pulse, Evolution and Aspire. Whilst new developments in the pipeline include Cecil Road, Charlton, Clarendon Court, Connect, Moor Lane, Stone, Vogue and Walm Lane.

Verve is part of the Government’s Help To Buy Scheme, which allows home buyers to purchase a property with just a 5% deposit and a 3.19% apr mortgage. Such is the success of the development that it has received a commendation at the NHBC Health and Safety Awards 2013.
