It beat tough competition from the best developments around the country to take one of the top spots. 

The award is a recognition of everything we know and love about Aspect Croydon.  From homes with luxury finishes, convenient appliances and a dedicated concierge through to a growing community and vibrant neighbourhood, there are so many reasons why Shared Ownership homes at Aspect Croydon are in such high demand from buyers. 

Each apartment is fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, filling homes with warmth and light – and 80 per cent of homes across the development are dual or triple-aspect, with windows on two or three sides offering views across Croydon.  In addition, every home enjoys a private winter garden, a multi-functional sunlit space enclosed with sliding glass doors, perfect for working, dining or relaxing.

With many buyers at Aspect Croydon taking their first step onto the property ladder, apartments are fully equipped with integrated kitchen appliances and built-in wardrobes, giving residents all the essentials they need without compromising on space.

Homes have also been designed to support efficient living, with underfloor heating and energy-saving technology used throughout. These are just some of the things that readers of First Time Buyer Magazine loved about Aspect Croydon.  You can find out more about the development by visiting the Aspect Croydon page of our website.  

The development, set in the heart of Croydon, offers buyers the perfect opportunity to live in a vibrant area of the capital at a more accessible price point – with one-bedroom homes starting from £88,750 for a 25% share, and two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments also available.  Crowned London’s Borough of Culture 2023, there’s things to do in every direction, and a busy hub of restaurants, bars, shops and just around the corner.  Locals can enjoy Boxpark Croydon, with eating options and event space hosting movie screenings, live music, creative workshops, art exhibitions, and comedy nights. 

Or for those who like the outdoors, leafy Wandle Park, Lloyd Park and Coombe Wood are a stone’s throw away, giving buyers access to acres of green, open spaces.

Aspect Croydon is an ideal location for first-time buyers thanks to its convenient transport links, with Wellesley Road tram stop on the doorstep providing routes throughout south London.

East Croydon station is a five-minute walk, connecting with central London including Victoria and London Bridge in under 20 minutes.  Those looking to travel further afield can also make use of quick connections to Gatwick Airport.

Amie Triphook-Cole, Head of Sales at NHG Homes, said: “There are so many great apartments on the market for first-time buyers at the moment, and so we’re delighted that Aspect Croydon has been recognised as outstanding in its class.  These homes have been designed to provide a feeling of affordable luxury, with every attention to detail paid – and we’re glad that the judges and the readers at First Time Buyer Magazine agree.  NHG Homes is committed to providing high quality affordable housing for first time buyers, and Aspect Croydon is a fantastic example of that.”

The First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards were established in 2010 to celebrate those going the extra mile to help first time buyers.  Now in their fourteenth year, the highly acclaimed awards recognise organisations that demonstrate excellence in producing high quality housing, and who are committed to helping first time buyers get onto the property ladder.
