Properties overlooking 54 acres of parkland at Clissold Quarter are set to go on sale . Built by developer Higgins Homes, the 158 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, duplexes and penthouses in Stoke Newington will be available to buy from Saturday, April 23.

The development is across the road from Clissold Park , which offers a range of amenities including a butterfly dome, summer paddling pool, tennis pavilion and an organic market garden.

Comprising three brick buildings ranging from five to 12 storeys, the scheme was created in partnership with Hackney Council and will see cash from the sale of the private apartments go towards funding council homes for social rent and Shared Ownership.

Clissold Quarter forms part of the regeneration of the Kings Crescent Estate, which will see existing properties refurbished with new balconies and winter gardens.

Higgins Homes sales and marketing director Jeremy Marcus said: “We want to ensure the existing community will benefit from the scheme, which is why it will be marketed locally first and will not be offered to the overseas market.”

The homes, which feature a sustainable green roof to provide natural insulation, were designed by Karakusevic Carson Architects and Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects.

They are within walking distance of Arsenal and Manor House stations on the Piccadilly line and Stoke Newington station on the London Overground. After a 10-minute walk to Arsenal, Canary Wharf is 32 minutes away by Tube.

Prices start at £475,000 for a one-bed, £555,000 for a two-bed and £775,000 for three-bed duplexes.
