THE TIMBERYARD: DEPTFORD’S NEW SUSTAINABLE HOMES
Cedarwood Square is the first collection of new homes at The Timberyard in Deptford. A unique development located in Zone 2, the development is delivered by Lendlease, a leader in sustainable urban regeneration
The collection of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments (from £399,950) and four bedroom townhouses (from £850,000) is surrounded by green space and is just moments from the River Thames. The homes feature spacious open-plan living spaces finished with timber flooring and huge windows, drawing inspiration from the warehouse buildings that came to shape Deptford’s landscape.
In line with Lendlease’s sustainable commitment to the local area, the homes at The Timberyard will feature leading energy-efficiency measures: ‘Powered by an on-site energy hub, these homes will be some of the most energy-efficient homes in the area with measures in place to help reduce energy bills for residents,’ says Janet Kidner, Project Director for The Timberyard Deptford at Lendlease.
In addition to an on-site energy centre, the scheme also includes a number of ecological enhancements, such as the provision of green and brown roofs to encourage the re-introduction of birds and other species historically seen in Deptford. The newly created Waterline linear park, which will run the length of the historic route of the Grand Surrey Canal, will bolster the feel-good effect of riverside living.
