Dalston is proving east London’s desirable property patch - with prices rocketing by 24 per cent in the past two years.

It is the flock of young professionals craving to adopt the E8 postcode who are being targeted by developer Bellway and its new scheme, Artisan.

Sales director at Bellway Homes Thames Gateway Peter Knights said: “Perfect for young professionals, we expect the homes to be popular with all types of buyers looking to be right in the middle of this trendy locale.

“The new homes in Dalston will only serve to enhance the increasingly positive reputation of the area. The area has seen unprecedented regeneration over the last few years and I’m proud to say Bellway is part of that.”

A range of one, two and three bedroom apartments are now on the market, with prices starting at £440,000.

All have been designed to high specification - with features including fully fitted kitchens, stylish en suite bathrooms decked out with chrome accessories and bedrooms boasting fitted wardrobes.

In the heart of the East End, the homes lie less than 10 minutes walk from Kingsland Shopping Centre and outdoor party and film space Dalston Roof Park.

A thriving cafe, bar and club culture means a lively night time vibe - as does the development’s proximity to Shoreditch.

Commuters to Canary Wharf can stroll to Overground stations Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction within 10 minutes with a journey time of around half an hour.
