More than half of the 25 apartments at Wheston Lodge, in Woodside Park, north London have sold in just three months. There is a choice of one- and two-bedroom apartments, including duplexes and penthouses. The development has been popular not only with young professionals but also with foreign investors and those buying property for their children studying in London.

Thornsett Group built Wheston Lodge in the former grounds of a church, Marian House. The accommodation is on five floors, in a red-brick rendered building. It comes with 22 off-street parking spaces, behind gates.

The Wheston Lodge kitchens have worktops by Lechner, with quartz stone in the penthouses. There are also oak floorboards and built-in stainless steel appliances (Bosch in apartments and Siemens in penthouses) including electric oven, microwave, cooker hood and electric hob. Bathrooms have chrome fixtures.

Bernadette Cunningham, director of Thornsett Group, says: "Having launched a mere three months ago, we are extremely pleased with the sales already achieved at Wheston Lodge.

"The development provides the perfect combination of a fantastic, leafy location, great transport links into central London and, of course, homes that have been built to the exacting standards for which the Thornsett brand has become renowned."

Holden Avenue is close to the North London International School, as well as David Lloyd Leisure Club and the North Middlesex and South Herts Golf courses.
