First resident move in!
Our first homeowner has moved in at The Silk District! During the first lockdown, Elliot Kemp, 28, Head of Digital Marketing at Navico, moved out of the flatshare he was in, into his parents’ house in Gerrards Cross, Berkshire. After six months in lockdown, he wanted to get out of the countryside and back to London’s bustling East End.
After viewing an apartment at The Silk District in September 2020, he fell in love with the development and area, deciding to put in an offer for a three bedroom apartment - and the rest is history!
We asked Elliot what he's most looking forward to now he's moved in: “After months of not being able to eat anything bar home cooking, it’s brilliant to be trying out local restaurants via Deliveroo again. I absolutely love Motu, a superb Indian and Urban Chocolatier, for when I’m not thinking about calorie intake! You can even order a Dishoom, which I’m really looking forward to once lockdown is lifted and I can have friends round to watch films in the cinema room on site. I’m also really excited for the onsite gym to open! I keep peering in waiting for lockdown to lift. It’s great that we’ll have that on site, and such an added bonus for housemates.”
