HONG KONG, 1 November 2021 - Barratt London is launching the highly anticipated next building of its Hayes Village regeneration scheme in West London. The Barnett Apartments are the only waterside properties available at the development, offering a charming setting with views across the Grand Union Canal.

Launching exclusively with global real estate firm JLL in Hong Kong on 6th November, the Barnett Apartments are located in a quiet corner of Hayes Village, offering a diverse collection of 113 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. With a rich heritage, West London’s iconic Nestlé chocolate factory once stood at the heart of the development, which offers two-acres of communal green space and an outdoor gym in homage to Eugene Sandow, the former herculean strongman who owned the factory in its Art Deco heyday.

Designed by award-winning architects DMFK, the studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments offer spacious, cleverly designed living spaces that are filled with natural light. Open-plan living areas feature full-height windows, and every kitchen is equipped with a range of modern appliances and a contemporary design, perfect for cooking and entertaining friends and family.

Bathrooms and en-suites feature stylish white and chrome fittings and are finished in attractive ceramic tiling. All homes within the development also have their own private balcony or terrace: a generously sized extension of living space, and ideal for outdoor dining.

Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL in Hong Kong, comments: “Given the appeal of waterside residential project, we expect the new phase of homes at Hayes Village to be a popular choice amongst our buyers. As well as appealing to end users, the development will also offer investors the opportunity to reap the rewards of London’s strong rental yields and capital gains potential.”

Ed McCoy, Sales and Marketing Director at Barratt London, comments: “Hayes Village is a heritage-led project with strong links to the past. The new apartments being established here celebrate the site’s rich industrial history, whilst creating a truly unique new London village.”

Residents at Hayes Village will be reminded of the factory’s unique chocolate legacy around every corner, from ‘Nestle Avenue’ to ‘Milk Street’. The iconic London site was home to many landmark inventions, including the world's first instant coffee, the discovery of white chocolate and the famous Milkybar.

After closing its doors in 2014, the redevelopment of the 30-acre site is due to significantly revitalise the immediate area. Due for completion in 2027, Hayes Village will provide 1,500 new homes to the community and open nine-acres of previously unused green space. This includes a 1.3km walking trail, 200m running track, the redevelopment of the canal frontage, a new public square, and a convenient footpath from the historic green to Hayes and Harlington train station – a key beneficiary of Crossrail.

Ideal for young professional owner-occupiers and renters, the development is situated close to a number of large businesses, including GSK, Sky and Apple. Rental values in the area are forecast to grow by 18% over the next 5 years (Source: Strutt & Parker Lettings Agent) with rental demand remaining high.

Studio, One-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments are available in the Barnett Apartments phase, with prices starting from £288,000 (about HKD 3.06 million). Barratt London also offers bespoke packages for investors including furniture packages by interior designer InStyle.

Barratt London’s Ed McCoy concludes: “This development is an exciting new prospect for Hayes, bringing a vibrant residential community to the area. With extensive amenities and excellent commuter links, it is set to put this quiet corner of West London on the map.”
