ST GEORGE LAUNCHES FIRST SHOW APARTMENT IN LONDON’S NEW ARCHITECTURAL ICON
St George, London’s leading property developer, is delighted to showcase a stunning new three bedroom show apartment, which is the first apartment completed within the impressive new Battersea Reach Tower.
Currently 40% sold, the Tower will provide 41 beautifully appointed riverside apartments and penthouses. Each apartment will be fitted with an outstanding specification and floor-to-ceiling glazing that will offer breathtaking views of the River Thames and the world famous London skyline from Putney Bridge through to Chelsea Harbour, the City and beyond. Each property will feature a private terrace or balcony that will allow for al-fresco dining whilst enjoying the spectacular panorama in incredible style.
Mark Griffiths, Managing Director, St George South London commented “The apartments within the Tower will offer some of the finest and most exclusive residences at Battersea Reach and an opportunity to own a part of this ‘Jewel in the Crown’ seventeen storey landmark building”.
The Tower will form the ideal location for those looking to reside in this exclusive enclave of South West London, within close proximity to well-know areas such as Hurlingham Park, Fulham, Chelsea, the famous King’s Road, Sloane Square and Knightsbridge.
The Battersea Reach development benefits from excellent access to the London transport network. Residents have access to numerous travel options with trains from nearby Wandsworth Town railway station taking just 12 minutes to Waterloo, where there are underground, mainline and international connections to Europe via King’s Cross St Pancras and the Eurostar. The A3 & M25 are also within close proximity for easy reach to London’s airport network. A managed underground car park is located within the development and is available at an additional cost.
The Tower will have a dedicated concierge desk within the magnificent entrance foyer. The apartments will have custom designed kitchens with granite surfaces and the very latest stainless steel appliances including a chilled filtered water tap, wine cooler and coffee machine. Bathrooms and en suites are fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, feature marble heated walls and stone flooring together with stylish back painted glass over the bath. Each apartment features comfort cooling to the bedrooms and open plan kitchen and living area, with under-floor heating to the bathroom and en suite.
River Thames Apartment Building
St George, London’s leading mixed-use developer is launching a new landmark Tower at Battersea Reach in May 2008. The impressive Tower will stand at 17 storeys and provide 40 highly specified two and three bedroom apartments and one magnificent penthouse. Each apartment will benefit from a private balcony or terrace providing stunning panoramic views of the River Thames from Putney through to Chelsea Harbour. St George previously developed the award winning Putney Wharf Tower, which is now an easily recognisable landmark, and is confident this new Tower will be another attractive landmark in this special location.
Strong demand is anticipated, with purchasers keen to claim their part of this Riverside destination on the Southbank. With a 300 metre riverside walkway, award winning landscaping, Young’s ‘Waterfront’ bar and restaurant, a French patisserie and coffee shop run by celebrity chef Eric Lanlard and a Hudson’s convenience store, the development is already a popular destination.
The Tower will have a private dedicated reception entrance with a concierge service. The apartments have custom designed kitchens with granite surfaces and the very latest stainless steel appliances including a chilled filtered water tap, wine cooler and coffee machine. Bathrooms and en suites have Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware, feature marble walls and stone flooring together with stylish back painted specialist glass over the bath. The apartments feature comfort cooling to the bedrooms and open plan kitchen and living rooms, with under-floor heating to the bathroom and en suite, providing a controlled and relaxing atmosphere.
Mark Griffiths, Managing Director of St George South London commented:
“Given the fantastic location and popularity of Battersea Reach we are excited to be launching this new and special phase to the market. Adjacent to Wandsworth Bridge, the Tower will act as a new local landmark. We have raised the level of specification and I am confident that the quality of choice and stunning views that the Tower provides will meet the aspirations of even our most discerning of clients”.
