More than half of the properties at Castle Green Place in Dagenham have been sold, the developer Countryside has announced.
The homes, which are a collection of three-bedroom terraced houses, were launched in February.
The scheme is located within walking distance to two tube stations on the District Line – Upney and Becontreee – and overground train services at Daganham Dock and Barking.
Andrew Loveday, sales and marketing director at Countryside said: “It is testament to both the homes at Castle Green Place and the current optimism in the property market that sales have been going so well since the launch.”
“Compared to most of London, Dagenham represents very good value, but there is a renewed sense of vibrancy in the area. Many of the buyers at Castle Green Place are from the local area which demonstrates that it is a place people want to put down roots, as well as benefit from the improvements that are coming.”
