New homes delivered on former derelict land in New Eltham

IMAGE: NEW DEVELOPMENT IN AVERY HILL ELTHAMStunning new homes, next to a beautiful green open space, have been built on the site of a former Gaelic football ground in New Eltham.

We have delivered 43 homes at the site on Avery Hill, known as Holland Gardens, which had lay derelict for over 25 years.

The development includes a mix of 16 Shared Ownership and 27 affordable rent homes.

Since 1992 the land was left unattended after the previous owners, Gaelic Atheltic Association, moved to Ruislip.  The development embraces the site's history, providing a large communal green for residents and the public to enjoy and ecouraging community engagement.

So we're happy to be making use of unused land and delivering much needed, high quality homes to help tackle the housing crisis.  This is a beautiful development with a great community feel and we're excited to welcome residents to their new homes."

The scheme is located a short distance from New Eltham train station, while award winning Avery Hill Park is within a 20 minute walk, along with the well known Green Chain Walk.

There are a total of 135 homes being built on this site, including the 43 homes already delivered by Optivo.
