Family flats in Zone 2 priced from £435,000 will strike a chord with young couples with kids who are keen to stay in the capital rather than head for the affordable suburbs — and a long commute.

Oval Quarter, in SW9, pictured, brings a much-needed housing scheme of scale and style. A Seventies council estate — 30-acre Myatts Field North — has been bulldozed to make way for 808 new homes and one of the largest new parks in London. There will also be allotments and a showpiece community centre with café, crèche and IT suite built "under" the park but with a sloping glass roof to maximise solar gain.
For such a close-in location, Oval stands out as good value at about £600 a square foot, with a promising future. The Northern line spur to Battersea Power Station will make Oval a more strategic transport point and the area is benefiting from Nine Elms and Vauxhall regeneration.

Shared-ownership options make the properties even more affordable, with the minimum 25 per cent stake starting at £108,750 for three-bedroom flats. Call Notting Hill Housing on 020 8357 4444.
