The need to focus on our own well being is more important now than ever. We’ve all been spending more time at home in the last six months, seeing the same rooms and walls day in and day out. That’s why now really is the time to ensure that home is where the heart is.
Even before the pandemic, the idea of wellness at home was already embedded into the cultural lexicon, with Build-to-Rent and Co-Living communities providing renters with a holistic living experience catered to their needs.
With the next few months looking just as uncertain as the ones that preceded them, the need for wellness around the home will only increase. Which is why we’ve put together a list of Build-to-Rent communities that are perfect for your well being. These communities offer a little bit of everything for renters, from stylish apartments to relaxing social spaces.
Essential Living Dressage Court
Serenity awaits you over in East London’s Bethnal Green at Essential Living’s Dressage Court, a Build-to-Rent community with 104 premium apartments. Homes provide spacious open plan living areas with plenty of natural light – an important component if you’re spending more time at home.
Then there are the social spaces, which include a games’ room for when you want to take five and relax without a worry in the world, and a working space so that you aren’t always confined to your home – no matter how nice it is. But perhaps best of all is the scenic rooftop garden. Clear your head with some fresh air while soaking up some seriously impressive views of London.
The Stay Club Kentish Town
One of the most important aspects of Build-to-Rent is its focus on community: being part of a vibrant community is a big driver for wellbeing. And Co-Living offers the chance to be even more integrated with other renters, sharing spaces like kitchens and lounge areas.
The Stay Club Kentish Town acts as a laid-back base where you can enjoy a holistic living experience. If you’re thinking more five-star hotel than house share, then you’re well on your way to understanding what’s on offer at The Stay Club. The Kentish Town iteration is all about renters’ wellbeing with little touches like a library, cinema room and outdoor terrace. We’re feeling relaxed just thinking about them.
Despite its hustle and bustle, Canary Wharf offers a layer of tranquillity with its calming waterside settings – especially on the weekend when the professionals are at home, leaving only the residents. Greystar Sailmakers embodies the calm side of Canary Wharf with sleek homes that feature pleasant water views.
Of course, it’s all about the social spaces at Build-to-Rent communities, and Sailmakers doesn’t disappoint. Relax in the cinema room, relieve some stress at the gym or speak to the on-site team who are there to help with your every need. Now that’s a five-star service!
MyLo Aldgate Place
The City might be the heartbeat of London, but MyLo Aldgate Place encapsulates tranquillity at its 29 premium apartments. Operated by Build-to-Rent specialists Greystar, MyLo Aldgate Place offers plush apartments with winter gardens overlooking the London skyline.
Enjoy the Integrated Caple wine cooler unit in your home and then head to the social spaces, where there’s a gym and plenty of outdoor green areas. In fact, MyLo Aldgate Places manages to feel like an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of London, despite being right bang in the centre of the action.
Essential Living Union Wharf
Essential Living really is all about wellness with their Build-to-Rent communities, and Union Wharf at Deptford Creek is no different. You’ll find 249 homes situated along the banks of the River Thames that offer calming vibes with their waterside setting.
Social spaces also include a place to work away from your apartments, while there’s an exercise room where you can get the endorphins going. Union Wharf is located nearby Greenwich, which is a peaceful and relaxing area in its own right. Embrace the maritime history or enjoy scenic walks at Greenwich Park, one of London’s eight royal parks.
The Collective Canary Wharf
Heading back to Canary Wharf, we round up our list of communities that are great for wellbeing at The Collective. Another Co-Living space, The Collective offers co-working areas where you can get all your work done, as well as a gym and cinema room.
Oh, and The Collective has a 14m sky pool where you can take a relaxing dip on the 20th floor while admiring the panoramics of London. Then treat yourself to the on-site five-star spa and indulge with a treatment session that you deserve.
Mind, body and soul
If you’re thinking about moving, then it’s time to explore a Build-to-Rent community and find a place that is so much more than a home. Whether you’re treating yourself to a spa, working out at the gym, finding some peace in the lounge and roof terraces or embracing the co-working spaces, Build-to-Rent communities offer renters a lifestyle designed just for you.
In the current climate that we find ourselves in, we can’t think of anywhere else we’d rather be.
