Receive £10,000 towards your moving costs, including legal fees when you reserve a one or two-bedroom apartment*

Nestled between the banks of the River Roding in Barking and Abbey Green a significant regeneration project is taking place which will create a new community offering the very best of city life with the neighbourhood feel of a friendly village.

With plans for restaurants, cafes, on-site shops, a riverside plaza and communal spaces, alongside new apartments at the urban village development, riverside living has never looked so good.

Abbey Quay is a collection of one and two-bedroom city-style apartments with an urban feel, which are being created by Weston Homes and available to reserve now. You can receive £10,000 towards your moving costs, including legal fees, for a limited time only*.

Alessandro Sottilaro and his family have purchased their dream home. He said: “We look forward to finally living in our new home. The kids are super excited about having their own separate bedrooms and the balcony will give us decent outdoor space as well.”

There will be more than 1,000 apartments as part of the regeneration project which will transform the waterfront, providing desirable public spaces, tranquil podium gardens and access to the river itself.

Ideal location

Everything you need is conveniently located on your doorstep, and with excellent transport connections, if you want to go further afield, then it is easy to get around.

Alessandro said: “It is nicely located between the River Roding and the grounds of the Barking Abbey in a lovely area.”

The river itself runs from Essex to the River Thames providing a lovely area to explore. Directly opposite, you will also find St Margaret’s Church and the beautiful Abbey Green Park. It is one of a number of local parks within easy reach, such as the Chase Nature Reserve which is less than 30 minutes by car.

The new homes at Abbey Quay are just a 10-minute walk to Barking train station - with direct trains to central London, you can reach Canary Wharf or Tower Hill in just 17 minutes and Liverpool Street and Kings Cross in less than half an hour †.

Barking’s bustling town centre is a short walk away and provides everything you need - bars, cafés, restaurants, parks, independent shops, supermarkets, leisure facilities and excellent transport links.

If you want more retail therapy then Europe’s largest shopping mall, Westfield Stratford City, is just a short car or train journey away.

By car, London City Airport is 16 minutes' drive and Gatwick is just under an hour away.

Expertly designed interiors

Every apartment features Weston Homes' unrivalled, fully-inclusive specification – which comes as standard - including fully integrated designer kitchens, fitted wardrobes in the principal bedroom, Smart technology in the bathrooms and hyperoptic broadband.


The interiors are bright and airy thanks to the large windows which flood each room with natural light . Every detail has been carefully considered to make the most of the space and provide the very best in modern living .

You can also choose from a wide range of designer options at no extra cost* so you can express your personality and transform a blank canvas.

Alessandro said: “The options available are fantastic, wooden flooring is included, you can choose between three different colours and the bedroom carpets there are loads of colours to choose from too.

“In the kitchen there are also so many different options, and you can even choose your favourite kitchen handles.”

The kitchens feature a range of A rated integrated appliances including a stainless steel electric fan oven, an integrated fridge/freezer, a washer/dryer and dishwasher. Finishing touches include quartz stone worktops and an instant boiling or chilled water tap, making everyday life a little bit easier.

The bathrooms are contemporary and feature modern technology, including Fascino digitally controlled Smart taps, showers and baths, as well as Smart mirrors with LED lighting and a de-mist feature.

Every apartment has a private balcony or terrace, where you can enjoy al fresco dining or simply relax after a busy day.Alternatively, you can spend time in the beautifully landscaped communal gardens - tranquil spaces with tree-lined walkways winding their way down to the river’s edge and elegant raised podium gardens.

Alessandro bought his property using Discount Market Sale - a scheme offered through a partnership between Weston Homes and Hillingdon council. Designed to help those who live or work in Greater London onto the property ladder, benefiting from a 20 per cent saving on selected homes.
