Historic Tudor estate converted into flats

The Evening Standard’s Homes and Property Editor Janice Morley joined Wake Up London to discuss all things housing.
Among her favourite properties on the market this week are the newly converted flats at Preston Hall. The Jacobean mansion was once owned by Henry VIII’s  fifth mother-in-law, so Janice says it’s perfect for anyone wanting to live a luxurious Wolf Hall lifestyle – although  the picture assure us the flats are rather better lit than the television series.
Just 35 minutes by train from London, Janice says these regal flats are an absolute dream and, starting at only £199,000, are an absolute bargain. Celebrate with a gin n’ tonic on the turret, says Janice.
For those determined to live in London, Janice recommends Bow, which she says is “so fashionable” – even if it used to be the area for slaughterhouses and glue factories. Beginning at £350,000 - £400,000, properties are priced well considering their central location. Janice also details the schemes run by Peabody,  providing a first time buyer and option from just £100,000.
Once you’ve got the house, of course, there are a whole host of other costs – so Janice has plenty of green technology to keep your house warm, healthy and best of all, affordable.
