Plump for a pad in “buzzing” Clapham and you can stash away your bucket and spade according to the people who built it.

Developer Bellway Homes believes its Listello Buildings scheme is pleasant enough that buyers will want to staycation there after purchasing a home.

The firm believes Clapham’s amenities and transport connections – coupled with what it says is the contemporary feel and spacious interiors of its homes – should mean Londoners won’t want to bother leaving the country.

It said those buying one of 58 studio, one, two or three-bedroom apartments “won’t need to go far to enjoy their time off”.

Bellway Homes Thames Gateway sales director Peter Knights said: “Clapham is a buzzing neighbourhood, even boasting its own music festival, as well as amazing nightlife and shopping amenities.

“But residents are also well located, with two stations in walking distance for quick access into London for all the capital has to offer this summer.

“For those who like to get further away, Clapham Junction is just two stops away by London Overground, from where trains to Brighton, Southampton, Portsmouth, Windsor and Bognor Regis are available.”

The homes are spread over seven storeys with duplexes also available.

Interiors are light and spacious with high gloss units and integrated AEG appliances in the kitchens and Roca sanitary ware in the bathrooms.

There are also secure video door entry systems and energy efficient lighting.

The sights and sounds of Clapham High Street are visible from outdoor terraces – accessed through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Those making the journey to and from Canary Wharf will find Clapham about 40 minutes away via the London Overground at Canada Water.

Prices start at £774,995 for a two-bedroom duplex apartment.
