Having a chat with... Jade

Who better to tell you why they love living at East Wick + Sweetwater than from someone who recently joined the family?

We caught up with Jade to get her views on why she decided to buy at EW+S and why she thinks it’s such a great place to live.

What made you decide to buy at East Wick & Sweetwater?

I had spent the last few years travelling around the world with work but always used Hackney as my base whenever I spent time in London. Last year, realising I was going to be based more permanently in London, I decided I wanted to make a home in the capital so began searching in and around Hackney.

East Wick + Sweetwater immediately jumped out and after discovering the different tenures offered at the scheme, I contacted the Home team to book a viewing and was sold as soon as I had been given the full tour.. The Shared Ownership scheme is a fantastic help I honestly couldn’t believe I could buy my own home in Hackney, it’s a dream come true.

What did you like about your new home?

So many things drew me to my new home, but the modern finish is great; the fittings are really high-spec and the amount of storage I have is incredible this was definitely a huge selling point having accumulated so much stuff from my travels. I love the fact I have my own balcony and cannot wait to have friends over for drinks on sunny days and to enjoy the views over the beautiful communal gardens.

What is it about Hackney Wick that makes it so unique?

For me, the location is second to none, you have all the local amenities you could want on your doorstep from green spaces to bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is so fun and such a great place to socialise with friends. I think my favourite spot must be the canal, it’s the perfect combination of calm but with some lovely eateries and drinking spots to enjoy too – it’s an unbeatable place on a sunny evening.
