Kooky launches its new Whetstone apartments in Barnet

New boutique build-to-rent brand, Kooky, has announced the launch of its 39 two-bedroom Whetstone apartments within Taylor Wimpey’s Oakleigh Grove development in South Barnet, London.

Kooky has been working closely with Taylor Wimpey since acquiring the units last year to develop and implement its own style. The designs are a concept unique to Kooky, and the boutique apartments offer a focus on quality of design in communal areas and within the apartments themselves. 

The 39 apartments in Whetstone form part of Kooky’s recent £33 million investment in the London Borough of Barnet, alongside 30 units in Taylor Wimpey’s Millbrook Park development. These are set to come to market in late August. 

Howard Crocker, managing director of Kooky, said: “Our apartments at Oakleigh Grove are another great example of a partnership at work between Kooky and an experienced housebuilder. Taylor Wimpey allowed us to work closely with them to make sure our designs, that are integral to the boutique Kooky brand and feel, could be conveyed in the finished product of both individual apartments and common parts. Whetstone is a sought-after location for renters, who are increasingly looking to combine easy connectivity to Central London with the space and amenities more available in Outer London boroughs, and we are incredibly proud to see them launch.”

In the past year, Kooky has invested a total of £76 million into properties in and around London. Its model offers stylish living and great service, priding itself on working closely with housebuilders to deliver unique properties that meet the genuine needs and desires of each individual renter.
