Situated in the affluent North London suburb of Muswell Hill, The Folium is an exceptional collection of 59 homes by Catalyst New Homes. Moments from nearby Coppett’s Wood, a historic 36-acre woodland, whilst boasting excellent travel connections, a buzzing street scene and strong eco-credentials, The Folium offers the chance to live in one of North London’s most sought-after postcodes.
The development of 54 one-to-three-bedroom apartments and five luxe townhouses, designed by Conran and Partners, has transformed the site of the former Coppett’s Wood Hospital, conscientiously delivering high-quality new homes as a focal point for the neighbourhood.
Welcoming a new community to Muswell Hill, the mixture of apartments and townhouses are available through both Shared Ownership and private sale. The site has seen a high level of interest in the variety of homes, with all two- and three-bedroom apartments now reserved and 40% of townhouses reserved shortly after the off-plan launch.
Inside, The Folium elevates the standard of living in the capital. Both apartments and townhouses are finished to a premium specification, including top-of-the-range fixtures and fittings throughout. Apartments offer spacious open plan living while the townhouses are spread across four floors, complete with expansive open-plan kitchen/dining room, a separate first-floor living room, and home study.
Angelica, a recent purchaser at The Folium, praises the apartments at the development, explaining “I love how bright and spacious the flat feels and I felt I could really work with the layout of the space – I could immediately picture myself living there. I work from home a lot so was looking for a space that was flexible for working in, and the light from the floor-to-ceiling windows was a real plus. The balcony and its views were also a huge selling point for me.”
Private balconies, terraces and gardens have been considered as an extension to the internal living spaces encouraging open air dining in the sunshine and offering vantage points to view the new landscaping. All homes have a private outdoor area, with townhouses featuring private gardens and apartments providing private balconies or terraces. The development is also well served with surrounding local green facilities such as allotments, a resident only ecology area and generous green open spaces.
Well-connected for residents to explore London and beyond, Muswell Hill has good bus connections, with the W7 taking commuters to Finsbury Park, where there’s tube and train services into central London, whilst nearby Alexandra Palace train station provides a train into Moorgate in just 20 minutes.
The local high street is awash with shopping and dining opportunities, including a fantastic array of independent galleries, restaurants and bars. Alexandra Palace is also close to the homes, hosting a busy programme of cultural events, and Muswell Hill’s Everyman cinema is moments away.
Shared Ownership prices start from £104,375 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment (FMV: £417,500) and private sale prices start from £1,400,000 for a four bedroom townhouse. For more information on The Folium, click here
