Vantage Point: a new London community

View latest articles


In this new series of articles we’ll be exploring the best of what London’s Build to Rent and New Homes markets have to offer London’s tenants and buyers. From rooftop bars and BBQ areas to communal work-from-home spaces and pools, Londoners are spoilt with the facilities on offer in developments that offer a new way of living in the capital.

Vantage Point is the latest in a line of exciting Build to Rent developments from established place-makers Essential Living. Situated in the ever-popular borough of Islington, Vantage Point is the perfect base for residents needing to commute by tube – it is situated directly above Archway tube station. We’ve seen renters move to Vantage Point from all across London to achieve that ideal balance between commute time and brilliant value for money.

Whilst a convenient commute tops the list for most working professionals in London, and Vantage Point certainly ticks that box, the incredible facilities on offer helps provide a unique living experience in this North London community.

Residents' amenities

One of the main attractions with living a Build to Rent development is that residents benefit from a host of amenities, which have been full incorporated into the living experience. Creating a sense of community by bringing residents together and providing facilities that are impossible to find in a normal rental property, is what truly sets London’s Build to Rent communities apart.

One of the many bright, airy communal living areas in Vantage Point.

The stunning dining/meeting room with views to rival many of London's top restaurants can be hired privately by residents.

Fabulous double height ceilings, panoramic views and a fireplace to cosy up to in winter make this communal area the perfect place for an post work catch-up.

Just one of the many communal roof terrace spaces for use by Vantage Point residents.

Residents at Vantage Point benefit from an on-site 24-hour residents’ team, who are able to help with any issues, however big or small. The building features a large, welcoming lobby, over 7,000sqft of social space and lounge areas for its residents.

If you're feeling particularly sociable, the development also features a private dining room which can be rented out for private events, as well as a games room.

To make the most of warm summer evenings, the development has a roof terrace which all residents can use, and where events are regularly organised. The roof terrace also features a herb garden and a BBQ area with a pizza oven, perfect for summer evenings.

For fans of fitness, Vantage Point also features a fully equipped gym, leaving very little excuse for not making it to the gym before or after work. If commuting by bicycle is your daily routine, Vantage Point also has secure bike storage. For those with a car, unusually for London developments parking is also available.

And for those residents wanting to rent with a furry friend, Vantage Point is a pet-friendly development. We are increasingly seeing renters looking for a home with their pet, so providing a pet-friendly environment certainly sets Vantage Point apart.
