Octavia is founded upon the principle that good housing and mixed communities matter. With this in mind, Octavia launch an exciting new company, Octavia Living to develop homes for outright sale and on a part-buy, part-rent basis to offer opportunities for a range of individuals to get a foot on the property ladder.
Originally founded by Octavia Hill who worked with the poor of London over 145 years ago, today the most prominent activity of Octavia is providing and managing a portfolio of good quality affordable housing in inner London, the most expensive part of the country.
Octavia have been building award-winning affordable homes for many years but the reduction in grant money available has inspired the group to use their experience but on the open market.
As a not-for-profit ethical development company, all of the revenue made from the sales of Octavia Living homes will be reinvested into building more affordable housing as well as community and care and support services provided by the wider Octavia group.
The first homes to go on sale from Octavia Living will be the much anticipated Greenhauses development near fashionable Bush Green – London’s first mixed tenure scheme built to the demanding Passivhaus (very low) energy standards.
