"Tower Hamlets has the largest pipeline of new homes of any London borough, and Limehouse offers all the first-time buyer must-haves"
Claire Brenlund

Just a few homes remain at L&Q’s Ropemakers Yard in Limehouse, where 90% of the 133 homes are now reserved.


Ready to move in to, the collection of one-bedroom apartments, available through either Help to Buy or Shared Ownership, offer first-time buyers a variety of routes on to the property ladder at the well-connected development, only a five minute walk from Limehouse DLR station.


With housing prices in Limehouse having grown by 22% over the last five years, Ropemakers Yard offers first-time buyers the chance to purchase in one of London’s most exciting hotspots.


Claire Brenlund, L&Q’s Sales Director - London comments: “First-time buyers continue to be drawn to East London to find pockets of affordability set to transform over the coming years. Tower Hamlets has the largest pipeline of new homes of any London borough, and Limehouse offers all the first-time buyer ‘must-haves’ – great transport links, a broadening cultural scene and growing numbers of bars and restaurants, at a much more affordable price than in the neighbouring City. Exclusive to our final homes, we are pleased to contribute towards Stamp Duty and legal fees, helping Londoners access home ownership at Ropemakers Yard.”


The last remaining apartments feature contemporary open-plan living spaces with floor to ceiling windows and private balconies, accessible via modern glass doors. Kitchens feature integrated Bosch ovens and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and a washer/dryer in the utility cupboard, included as standard. As well as fantastic facilities within each home, residents at Ropemakers Yard have access to an on-site gym, fitness studio, communal gardens and 24 hour concierge.


Brilliantly connected to the City, residents can reach Bank in just 10 minutes, via the DLR from Limehouse station. Similarly, Stepney Green underground station is a 12 minute walk away, serviced by the District and Hammersmith and City Lines, with a journey time to Liverpool Street of under 10 minutes.


Providing green space on the doorstep, Ropemakers Yard is adjacent to Whitehorse Road Park, whilst 79-acre Mile End Park is only a five minute walk away. Alternatively, Regent’s Canal and Limehouse Basin offer picturesque walking spots, with a great selection of bars and restaurants close by including Gordon Ramsey’s The Narrow, The Craft Beer Co. Limehouse and Husk Coffee & Creative Space.  


Private sale apartments start from £405,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, available through London Help to Buy. Shared Ownership prices start from £91,250 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment (FMV: £365,000)
