Testament to this is a collection of four new five-bedroom townhouses built by award-winning house builder, Crest Nicholson. Located on one of London’s most sought after garden squares, St Peter’s Square, W6, the desirability of these newly built homes is confirmed by the fact that one of the £3 million plus properties has already been sold prior to officially coming to market.
Julia Reynolds, Sales and Marketing Director, Crest Nicholson London, explains: “Newly built properties without doubt have far wider appeal now than in years’ past, with purchasers increasingly recognising the benefits of having a home purposefully designed to facilitate contemporary living. With significant experience developing in prime London boroughs, our properties have been created to reflect the demands of these buyers. The classical Georgian-influenced exteriors enable the St Peters Place townhouses to sit perfectly alongside their period neighbours, whilst thoughtfully designed internal layouts and the very highest quality contemporary interiors make them a cut above equivalent-sized second hand properties on the market in the area.
“With each house offering over 2,751 square feet of floor space, living areas have a practical flow to them, with every inch of floor space maximised; something that often is not the case in a period property. Spread across five floors, the homes offer an optimum ratio of family living space and private bedroom and bathroom space; perfect for a young family, parents with older children or a couple who frequently need to accommodate guests.”
Julia continues: “Another significant benefit to these properties being newly built is the versatility of the private outdoor space we have been able to incorporate into the design; one simply can’t find the equivalent in a period property. Each house features bi-fold doors opening onto a private terrace from the ground floor kitchen / dining area, flooding the interior with natural light and doubling the size of the entertaining area. The family room, on the lower ground floor, opens onto a neat courtyard area; the master bedroom suite has French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony; a second floor bedroom opens onto a terrace at the rear of the property; whilst the third floor suite, perfect for a live-in nanny or au pair, features its own secluded roof terrace.”
Specified to exacting standards, interiors feature solid oak floors and under floor heating, comfort cooling, programmable mood-lighting and a sound system to certain areas. Kitchens include a full range of Gaggenau kitchen appliances, including four ovens and a steam oven, warming drawers, a wine cabinet as well as a Quooker hot water tap. Four en-suite bath/shower rooms and a wet room each feature stylish top-of-the-range Villeroy & Boch and Roca fittings.
Furthermore, for the security conscious, each house has two private underground parking spaces with direct access to the property. There are security alarms throughout the house and the steel fronted door has biometric fingerprint recognition.
