Gemma Samuels video tour of Leaside Lock

Case Study / 23 June 2022

We could talk all day about how fantastic the apartments at Leaside Lock are, but don’t take our word for it, check out this video tour from interior designer Gemma Samuels.

Gemma’s video tour is the ideal solution for those who don’t have the time to visit Leaside Lock themselves, but want to get a good feel of what it’s like inside one of these stylish two-bedroom east London apartments. And the fact it’s presented by someone with such extensive industry experience and expertise only adds to the appeal.



In the video, Gemma is quick to note the strong focus on placemaking that underpins the Leaside Lock project. She specifically highlights the open space and residents’ amenities such as gym, convenience stores and podium gardens that come together to create such a strong sense of community.

Gemma goes on to provide a comprehensive tour from the moment she walks through the front door. Leaving no stone unturned, she is quick to discover the extensive storage space in the hallway before being wowed by the stylish kitchen and its Bosch integrated appliances that complement an overall minimalist feel.


Kitchen/Living Area

Moving into the dining and living areas, Gemma is struck by the amount of light that floods in through the full-height windows. She also admires the views of London’s famous skyline and notes that Leaside Lock’s convenient transport links put the best of the city within easy reach.


Local Area

As a local resident herself, she also talks about the amenities that can be found on the doorstep in Bromley-by-Bow. From Roman Road Market and Victoria Park to fantastic events and nightlife, there is a great variety of ways to stay entertained


Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Space for a four-poster bed and a built-in full-height wardrobe was Gemma’s main focus in the master bedroom, which finds the perfect balance between form and function. This was reinforced by the modern en-suite bathroom which, like the rest of the apartment, features underfloor heating for complete comfort.

With scope to be used as a spare room, home office or both, Gemma loved the versatility of the second bedroom. She also sang the praises of the main bathroom, with its stylish bath, shower and sanitaryware and the scope to make it your own.


Why choose Shared Ownership?

Gemma concludes by talking about how the outstanding value of the shared-ownership apartments at Leaside Lock makes the development perfect for first-time buyers. You could own a 25% share of a two-bedroom apartment at the development for just £121,000.
